1. So what?
LebanonPride ,   Canada   (06.23.11)
So what if it's anti-Zionist and anti-Israel. It's not against the law to hate the Zionist state (yet)... Freedom of speech doesn't exist when talking about Israel. Because there is too many bad things to talk about, or so it seems.
2. Bravo Apple!
R Blum   (06.23.11)
May facebook, google, & apple continuously screen out incitement to violence, war, & genocide - and sophisticated subterfuges to skirt around the screens.
3. Anti-Semites are just too late.
Claudia ,   Tampa USA   (06.23.11)
I will never buy another Apple product. Hear that Jobs? NEVER.
4. Pretty stupid to be approved in the first place.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (06.23.11)
5. So what?
Salma ,   Palestine   (06.23.11)
6. The disgusting behavior of "Palestine"
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (06.23.11)
The world does not need another backwards and brutal Arab dictatorship called "Palestine", that espouses war, terrorism, murder, hatred and racism.
7. to #1 you got alot to learn on democracy
ghostq   (06.23.11)
freedome of speak is given only when it is not used for inciting or act of violance against other people or nations, other wise you will have anarchy, but since in your mind you still thinks in meadeval terms you will make yourself frustrated.
8. this is just a drop in the sea, not enough
ghostq   (06.23.11)
but it is something I guess.
9. Idiot #1
Eric ,   New York   (06.23.11)
It's not against the law to hate the Zionist state. It is against any country's law to promote killing of civilians (aka Inifadah, however you spell that). Go rot...
10. Poor oppressed Lebanonpride
Korem ,   New York, USA   (06.23.11)
There's criticism of Israel all over the media, in books, articles, documentaries, and a host of other forms of media, so stop acting like your right to free speech is stifled. There's a difference between criticizing Israel, and even a difference between demonizing Israel like you do, and actually inciting violence. That's what the app was doing, and therefore it violates Apple's terms. Hey, when that Mohammed cartoon was published, there were riots and eventually there were heavy apologies and the cartoon was pulled. Could I then say freedom of speech doesnt exist when talking about Muslims? No, I understand that was offensive, but you dont understand that calling for the death of millions of Israelis is offensive too.
11. Also
Palestinian   (06.23.11)
The names of Haganah - Stern - Irgun should be removed also
12. #3 I will buy two: one for me one for you :-)
Yossef   (06.23.11)
13. #5 Instead of Intifada App
Yossef   (06.23.11)
develop an App useful for everybody, be constructive. Stop being destructive.
14. Haha...
LebanonPride ,   Canada   (06.23.11)
Claudia and Brian Cohen, I think you think to highly of yourselves. Claudia, that won't effect Apple in any way, so have fun with your boycott. Brian, I'm sure you know what the world wants, but you can see into the future. That's a bonus. By the way, Israel does all those things you meantion. But it's 'self defence' and anybody who thinks different is an anti-Semite, right?
15. tough libanees writing in an israeli newspaper
ilan ,   Belgium   (06.23.11)
why do not write your stupidities in a palestinian or libanese newspaper and leave Israel in peace
16. to #1 - LebanonPride
klaus   (06.23.11)
A man who lives, not by what he loves but by what he hates is a sick man; so too a nation, Archibald MacLeish summed up what muslims are, why they want to kill anybody who think differently than them, why they don't win nobel prizes commensurate with their population, why they send suicide bombers to kill civilians, how they justify their soldiers and leaders hiding behing their own civilians, how they can send innocent children against their will with bombs attached to them, how lying is a part of their religion ( and much much more. Jews, Christians, others, all need to be converted or killed. Religion of peace? I think Archibald MacLeish may be right, what do YOU think?
17. #7 You still have a long way learning English spelling.....
JOHN ,   JERUSAEM   (06.23.11)
18. The Muslims and non-Jewish Left have united. The poor Jews
spookey   (06.23.11)

19. #15 ilan ,
Salma ,   Palestine   (06.23.11)
How is the weather in Belgium ? Enjoy your time there : )
20. Lebanonpride, again
Korem ,   New York, USA   (06.23.11)
To say that sometimes Israel does bad things is different then calling for an uprising to kill all Israelis. The app was banned for the second reason, not the first. Do you understand this?
21. i won't buy the iphone 5 in september
scarllet ,   USA   (06.23.11)
untill the man approved this applocation will be out of job!!!
22. Lebanonpride Canada no 1
JUDAH THE LION   (06.23.11)
Any freedom of speech in Arab/islamic world. You twister,you use freedom of speech ONLY when it suits Islam.
23. incitement for you. What will you do now?
24. Number 11
Yaniv ,   Uk   (06.23.11)
You mean PALESTinIAn should be removed
25. #1: LebanonPride - Ha! Ha!
The Macabee ,   Israel   (06.23.11)
Have a good look at this! You hate Israel Zionism but you love those Muslims who kill Muslims, men, women and children, in Mosques! Pervert!
26. #4: Hear, hear, Bunny!
David ,   Karmiel, Israel   (06.23.11)
Apple should note that Assad is blaming Smartphones for the Uprising in Syria! Actually, why ban the app? Let the Muslims who hate Israel and anything they don't like show themselves up. It won;t be long until they commit another atrocity like 9i/11 which will enrage the world for 10 minutes! Maybe someone should write an app showing how Muslims treat their women and circumcise little girls! As for Apple in Israel, well, it took them years to Open IDigital in Israel and the reason it is called IDdigital is that don't want to call the stores "Apple Store" because it will upset the Arabs! By the way folks, maybe Mr. Jobs should explain to us why in Israel we cannot download I tunes from Apple?
27. #17 John the IDIOT
Eli ,   Jerusalem   (06.23.11)
And who is a moron such as yourself to criticize #7 for the way he/she writes English. If there are a a few minor grammatical errors, they are more than compensated for by the depth of thought and the mastery of democracy. And what did you contribute to the converation? Nothing but your stupid name in CAPITAL LETTERS. (Ha, Ha)
28. #1
Madeleine ,   Rehovot Israel   (06.23.11)
You can hate whom you want - an you Arabs are really good at hatred - but calling for an uprising (3rd intifada) is incitement to kill, murder, spill blood. So Facebook and Appel were completely correct in removing your disgusting literature. I see you're so proud of Lebanon that you'reliving safely in Canada. I'm sure you don't want to run foul of Nasrallah.
29. Which bastard developed the application
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (06.23.11)
in the first place....????? GIVE THE NAME!!!!!!!
30. #11, "Palestinian"...I am more a fan of
