1. no solution
Teddy   (05.25.11)
Nobody will rethink their positions. It's time intelligent people admit that there is no solution to the problem. The Arabs have to be crazy to accept Israel's existence. They realize that there cannot be another Arab State as long as there is a State of Israel. There is simply no room!! Israel will be crazy to cmpromize with the arabs unless it wants to be destroyed! Bottom line, this is not a war of nations. It is a war of religions. Right or wrong, when it comes to religion there is no winner. That's the way it was & always will be. That's the way of the world.
2. Netanyahu's Speech...
Servant ,   USA   (05.25.11)
Eventually Israel and the Jewish people WILL be victorious over ALL her enemies no matter the number of those who disagree with what was said by Israel's Leader. The One and Only True Living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has determined this total victory to be so. May God Almighty bless and protect Mr. Netanyahu, his family and all of Israel.
3. As for Palestinians, IN GOD WE TRUST
NadMan ,   PALESTINE   (05.25.11)
4. Netanyahu and US Congress
Harold ,   USA   (05.25.11)
No matter how much the US Congressmen clap for Netanyahu they will never change the vision and opinion of the world to creat a Palestinian State and the evacuation of all occupied Palestinian lands. 1967 is the most important year to start solving the 63 years Middle East problem. Those congressmen who claped for Netanyahu backing a foreign leader and are against their elected President. Shame on them for taking bribes from AIPAC and other Jewish lobbyist to ignore their President.
5. No. 1, you are half right
Marco ,   Spain   (05.25.11)
For Arabs it is a religious matter because they already have 22 countries and they also occupy 78% of Israel renamed Jordan therefore they don't need one more country to live in but their religion cannot allow other religions to exist in the Middle East. For Jews it is an existential matter because Israel is the only Jewish country in the world. Do you have a better comprehension of the subject now?
6. proud of Congress
Susan ,   Kfar Saba   (05.25.11)
As a duel Israeli/American citizen I was very proud of the Congress yesterday. These are the representatives of the American people and show the true opinion of most Americans.
7. money
MAB ,   Canada   (05.25.11)
trust the money you spend to buy the US politicians and nothing more. without the money there'd be no support - they want the holy land for the rapture and all Israelis are either to convert to Christianity or perish - look it up - with friends like Congress - Israel needs no enemies - keep the money flowing...
8. Wrong Harold # 4
Harvey ,   London   (05.25.11)
9. Great Speech ... But
Pixelated Dwarf ,   USA   (05.25.11)
I think he did a great job in his speech and made some fine points that had to be said. Remembering that he was speaking to his audience -- US Congress and America. He bowed to the liberals saying that we would give up parts of Israel to Arab Terrorists and threw a bone to the Right saying that he wanted the Terrorists to be disarmed.
10. Yes we trust Americans
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (05.25.11)
They are loyal, hardworking, honest, generous and forthright people. Every desirable attribute that neither the US President, Europe or Arabs possess. Canadians also have it in abundance. But to move far enough to appease the Europeans and Odumbas of the world is suicidal.
11. Why
Phil ,   NY,NY   (05.25.11)
Congress may cheer but many average Americans are extremely insulted by the actions of Netanyahu. Looked beyond the "beltway". Many Americans are asking themselves why we should continue supporting such a government. as Netanyahu represents.
12. #8 Harvey, London
Harold ,   USA   (05.25.11)
You sound like the old British who likes colonization and rule with iron fist and that is what happed to the Palestinians. Colonization is history and no one in the world likes that system anymore except someone like you and your followers - the Israelies. I want to hear from you when the world recognizes the Palastinian State and becomes a new member of the United Nations as Obama promised last year.
13. to nr. 10.
justice for all ,   world/planet earth   (05.26.11)
no. in G.D we trust!
14. #12. What the UN establishes, GOD will destroy.
B.E. ,   Whangarei, N.Z.   (05.26.11)
15. to Harold,USA 4
john Darren ,   cairns-Australia   (05.26.11)
We appreciate your love for your Congress and the Jewish people. You are Prince amongst Wankers.
16. to Harold 12
john Darren ,   cairns-Australia   (05.26.11)
What country does Israel colonize? You truly are a wanker.
17. to marco #5 in Spain
teddy   (05.26.11)
I totaly agree with you! I wish that the aso-called educated people in the world would understand this!!!
18. A Critical Error In This Assessment
Edward ,   Savannah, USA   (05.26.11)
The President can "outline" foreign policy all he wants, but under the U.S. system of government, it is the CONGRESS that can decide WHO and WHAT to do!!! They can withhold monies for projects and countries, and they can pass ANY Law they want to, and if the poser doesn't like it or enforce it, they can boot his illegal alien butt out of that office and send him packing back to Kenya where he came from if he doesn't spend time in Gitmo first for terrorist activities against the people and country of the U.S.!!! Not to mention ALL of the other crimes he committed to get where he illegally is at!!!
19. Bebe's speech
marcia ,   florida   (05.26.11)
