1. For once I hope these Quislings are right!
tom ,   tel aviv   (09.07.11)
2. Keep it up
shu ,   Ariel, Israel   (09.07.11)
Keep up the good work, keep on building
3. empty the tents, and settle in houses
Eddie ,   London UK   (09.07.11)
Peace now do not really care about the poor people in protest tents, or the housing crisis. They are the poor little rich kids with expensive houses, lots of money, and nothing to do with their free time, other than to malign ordinary Jews.
4. Where else do you expect all of the disgruntled leftists....
Gil ,   Tel Aviv   (09.07.11)
to live?
5. Excellent news, defacto annexation will yield PALESTINE
Nour ,   One-State   (09.07.11)
Palestine from The Jordan to the Mediterranean. Bravo -keep it up.
6. Such a peace promoting group, this Peace Now
Jonathan   (09.07.11)
Makes me proud deep inside, not!
7. You Better Believe It
Yishai Kohen ,   YeShA, Israel   (09.07.11)
After Bibi's disastrous building freeze- that gained Israel NOTHING, we have to redouble our efforts to keep up with the extremely high demand. That's what we're doing- with G-d's help.
8. "PIECES NOW" should be shameful to face their forefathers...
mary of Bethany ,   singapore   (09.07.11)
... who cried "Next Year in Jerusalem" for 1800+ years, wanting to step in the Chosen Land, died and buried in the Chosen Land. yet "Pieces Now" decided to rename Judea / Samaria into the hateful "Westbank"? Woe is the day "pieces now" and leftists face their Creator who asked them, "why do you despise your "Birthright" which I have given you?"
9. At last, some good news after a long time
Reuben ,   Tel Aviv   (09.07.11)
10. Great !!! Fantastic news !!!
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (09.07.11)
11. housing construction
jan ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (09.07.11)
This is only reasonabe-what young couple can afford housing in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv or Bnei Brak-as an example? The only way is for young couples and young families to expand within our Torah boundaries, which actually includes Jordan and many other countries as well! Our Country is very small as of now, but these are not our G-D given borders, it's time for us to expand and re-claim ALL of our lands, and, to hell with world opinion!
12. What'ya know
Fille Ann Thrope ,   Skokie   (09.07.11)
Very good. The Israelis should name these new settlements with names like "Mitzpe Arafat," "Givat Mohammed," "Shikun Islam." Then the govt. will never have the nerve to take them down.The Arabians will surround and protect them. Ha Ha Ha.Ha Shem laughs last.
13. Peace Now uses aerial photographs
William ,   Israel   (09.07.11)
Peace Now claims that any Israeli in Judea / Samaria is illegal, including the IDF which protects Israelis from Arab terror (and does a damn good job at it). So how can Peace Now use photos taken from a plane that "violates" the "Palestinian" airspace according to their own position? Hypocrites!
14. #5 - um, you forgot the Jews are still in charge
William ,   Israel   (09.07.11)
and with that, annexation will only yield a small enclave of Arab autonomy areas for your ilk, who will be given the choice to either yield to Israeli laws or move to Jordan. And with that, the state of the "refugees" will remain unsolved as none will be permitted to "return" to Israel - a land where 95% haven't even placed a foot on in their lives. Your best bet is to re-claim the province in Syria which holds the name of your people "Palestine" - your true homeland.
15. no peace now
sol ,   elkana   (09.07.11)
What this group has contributed is that there will be no peace. If they care so much for the arabs then they should pack their bags and leave Israel as the arabs consider the whole of Israel as their la nd so these peace loving jews wana help them surely their daughters will marry with their men and they will live happily ever after
16. Demand unrestricted Jewish building in Judea/Samaria.
Chaim ,   Israel   (09.07.11)
It's time to permanently end all racist restrictions on Jewish building in Judea and Samaria. This land is ours. It has been ours for more than 3,500 years. Moreover, we have overwhelming, incontrovertible legal proof this land is ours. All of Patriotic Israel, which is the vast majority of our nation, must rise up and demand unrestricted Jewish building in Judea and Samaria.
17. What this means is there is no building in Israel
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (09.27.11)
If Peace Now is right and the rate here is double the rate of the rest of the country, there is only one conclusion: There is almost no construction going on in Israel. If there are only 2598 housing units going up in Judea and Samaria, this means there are barely 1500 new units under construction within the green line. What this really means, of course, is that Peace Now is a totally screwed up organization if it produces such a ridiculous report based in fabricated statistics based on inflated numbers. I challenge Peace Now to produce numbers showing the construction rate for the rest of the country. I accuse Peace Now of lying. Peace Now is losing supporters week by week, and is desperately trying to produce something to show that the organization is still relevant. It isn't. Peace Now should turn off the lights and lock their door, and put up a FOR SALE sign. The country has realized that there is no such thing as "peace now", and that the obstacle to peace is the Palestinians, not the "settlements".
