1. He almost makes you miss Yossi Sarid
Ilan ,   Ariel   (05.23.11)
The only comfort Tibi brings is that it shows the difference between Israel and the terrorists he champions. If someone would criticize Abbas (as if there could even be a Jewish parliament member in the PA) he would be charged with treason or just summarily shot. Tibi shows that Israel is strong enough to tolerate the worst humanity has to offer.
2. Very funnnnny doctor
Amir ,   Yaffa, Palestine   (05.23.11)
3. I'd laugh...
Tomer ,   Hod Hasharon, Israel   (05.23.11)
but the sad thing is, he's right. This is EXACTLY Netanyahu's "strategy"
4. Hee-heee-heee. Not bad, Tibi...not bad.
Israeli 2   (05.23.11)
5. Wow. Fantastic Speech, Ahmad Tibi.
Salma ,   Palestine   (05.23.11)
3 Cheers For You!
6. You should be thrown out of the Knesset.
Terry ,   Eilat - Israel   (05.23.11)
As a matter of fact, you should be thrown out of the country.
7. Oh sure, Mr. Tibi
M.J. Eizen ,   Petah Tikvah, Israel   (05.23.11)
Taking advice from Ahman Tibi is like the lamb and the wolf discussing what will be on this evening's menu. In any decent country, Tibi would be charged with treason, tried, and sentenced accordingly.
8. Why is he allowed to write here?
Yossu ,   Canada   (05.23.11)
Why is Ynet allowing a terror supporter arab yo write on here? He clearly supports Hamas and the destruction of Israel so I want to know WHY is a terror abater allowed to write on an Israeli newspaper? Enough appeasing the arab terrorists... Leave that job to Haaretz!
9. Salma dear
Linichka ,   Gdynia, Poland   (05.23.11)
Since you are so appreciative of Dr. Titty, why don't you and your brethren invite him to take up residence in Ramallah? He used to be good for a little comic relief, but these days, he grates. And it's alarming to note how detached from reality a human can be.
10. tibi wrote it? i definitely won't read it
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (05.23.11)
tibi is a cartoon character that has nothing of value to contribute, so no reason to waste the time on more rants of the delusional. life is too short and full of people like this to voluntary give an audience, you know?
11. He is scared.
Jules   (05.23.11)
12. One fundamental element must be clear to all: All peace...
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (05.23.11)
...talks to date have been governed by UN Security Council Resolution, 242, it having been accepted by all parties to the conflict as the basis for peace-making. UN Security Council Resolution, 242, in no way suggests what the future boundaries of Israel should be. In fact, specifically, when addressing the subject, 242 refers to "secure and recognized boundaries". Any attempt to see Israel giving up on its security by ensuring that its future boundaries be other than secure and recognized by the warring parties, as called for by 242, is indicative of how much the security of the nation-state of the Jewish people, Israel, is of little or no importance to him/her, not withstanding statements such as "our commitment to Israel's security is unshakable". P.S. UN Security Council Resolution, 242, does not call for the setting up of an additional state in the region nor does 242 mention concepts such as "Palestinians", "Palestine" or a "Palestinian state".
13. What nerve!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (05.23.11)
Who the hell is this traitorous Arab MK to be composing a speech for the Prime Minister? Tibi is a thug and a criminal. He belongs in a prison cell, not the Knesset.
14. Tibi the clown
citizen   (05.23.11)
Tibi the clown makes fun of our PM, of our MKs, of our country. Since we know where his loyalties lie, we should encourage him to join forthwith the Hamas-Palestinian circus.
15. Let's sit and do nothing.
Elsie. ,   Gush Halav   (05.23.11)
In any decent country ,he would be charged with treason,tried and sentence, well, actually no, because these decent counties have what you call, free speech, ever heard of it??
16. Wow, I agree
Danny   (05.23.11)
sometimes "do nothing" is the best route. "Do anything" is what got Israel out of Gaza and South Lebanon. How is that working out?
17. Why aren't the Arabs proactive in giving gestures?
Michael   (05.23.11)
Why is it Israel's job to offer and to try itself crazy for peace. While tha arabs say no or not good enough, they 9Israelis) aren't serious. Yet, other than complaining what are they saying? nothing. have they changed the hatedul propoganda they call education? no. So Mr. Tibi unless you have a realist ic idea please continue to do what all the arab politicians are doing. That is (say) nothing.
18. I didn't follow any of that
Avi Stein   (05.23.11)
19. mwahaha
Daniel ,   UK   (05.23.11)
20. yes i agree
rashid ,   palistinian   (05.23.11)
i could have written this letter myself believe me this is my style always speak the truth as dictated by iran
21. Acmed Tibi... comedian extradinaire
moshe ,   Tivon, Israel   (05.23.11)
Mr Tibi has NO problems with ham or hiz firing UNguided missiles on Israeli women and children. Even Mr Tibi's " humorous " references to the lack of accuracy of these bombs, does NOT negate the intention of his Arab collegues. Perhaps Mr Tibi has some "humor" to spread regarding the survival of Israel in the face of his murderous colleagues. moshe
22. Israel is the only. Democracy in the middle east my butt
Abdalla   (05.23.11)
And the Americans are fools for believing that
23. The Stench
HaifaGuy   (05.23.11)
Tibi, your hometown, Taibeh, stinks because its people like you who do less than nothing to alleviate it. You are the living embodiment of the Arab/Palestinian strife: you'd muuuuuch rather keep things rotting away than roll up your sleeves and actually do something about the problem. Your Arab brethren keep your people rotting because it serves their interest: divert ppl's attention away from domestic issues. Its soooo much easier than getting down to brass tacks of actually doing something constructive, like pushing for funds for your decomposing town. BTW, I'm sure your own household is JUST FINE!!
24. tibi, why not?
yos   (05.23.11)
you arabs demand what's not yours and ask israel to give what it cannot afford. the only way to solve this riddle is to swap people. you already have-- jordan- 80% arab palestinans. 2- gazahamstan-- 100%jewish -free zone. what else do you want? don't answer it ,tibi, we know..... like bib said to hussein nobama-- not gonna happen!!!!!
25. Like it or not, he is right...
Rami of Nazareth ,   Israel   (05.23.11)
Jewsih opposition leaders, whether Livni, mofaz or others are all exactly the same....... Unfortunatly Natanyahu is not doing anything to promote peace and ensure future Israeli generations can live in peace... It's a fact..
26. Middle Eastern Caliphate
John Prophet ,   Of Light   (05.23.11)
The Hamas/Fatah, good cop/bad cop façade created by the puppet master in Teheran has been modified. This is a game changer and signals a strategy move. The puppet master believes he speaks for God, therefore, the words and desires of man are meaningless to him. This strategy move will be indicated by increased pressure being placed on Israel, in the form of physical aggressive moves. The Puppet Master believes God wants him to create a Middle Eastern Caliphate, and Israel is in the way!
27. # 6, # 8, # 13
Mike Carmel ,   Rishon le Zion   (05.23.11)
Get over yourselves you lot. This is actually FUNNY. Tibi likes to be the comedian - didn't you ever see him on talk shows on TV? Don't take it all so seriously - much of it is true. That's DEMOCRACY - remember? The ability to express one's opinion, especially through the use of humour. If you don't like it then get off the pot.
28. #15
M.J. Eizen ,   Petah Tikvah, Israel   (05.23.11)
The reason that Tibi should be tried for treason has nothing to do with free speech. It has everything to do with consorting with, providing aid and comfort to an enemy (Hamas) that is sworn to the destruction of the country that he represents. In any decent country, that is treason.
29. Lets sit and do nothing #27
Elise. ,   Gush Halav   (05.23.11)
Well said, Mike, people, we rest our case!.
30. Tibi what you really mean
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (05.23.11)
Is that we should act just as your terrorist brethren? Since when have the Arabs EVER done anything?
