1. Oh goodie! A Quarter Meeting = More Amuse-Bouches
Nour ,   One-State   (09.17.11)
More fine spirits, and canapes, more bullshit, and fake smiles, but hey, the beef tartar was great. In the meantime, the Palestinian people will not relent until our total freedom, independence, and sovereignty.
2. For those not understanding Arabic, when Mr. Mahmoud Abbas
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (09.17.11)
spoke yesterday in Ramallah about the "occupation", he talked about "63 years of 'occupation'". The meaning: the sovereign state of Israel, 63 years of age, is considered by the head of the PLO and the PA, according to the PLO's Charter, as an "occupied" territory. Thus, what is the true intent of the PLO that is eager to get off the yoke of "occupation"...??!!

4. Quarter of Failure
Marcel ,   Florida   (09.17.11)
The 4 weaklings of the Fourth Reich combined can't do anything but push their phony peace on Israel that rewards Islamic terrorism. Time for Israel to find peace by seeking the Lord instead of these losers.
5. Only BIG ISRAEL can bring balance and freedom to ME.

6. Embrace peace and avoid war
Mark Jeffery Koch ,   Cherry Hill, NJ USA   (09.17.11)
Israel never did what it could do to make peace with its neighbors - the people of the Middle East. Instead, Israel made peace with dictators who oppress their people and Israel’s leaders were happy having good relationships with the tyrants of Egypt and Tunesia who oppressed their people. Israel almost made a catastrophic mistake by negotiating with Bashar Assad for the return of the Golan Heights. Israel could never understand why Nelson Mandela wanted nothing to do with it after apartheid ended. It failed to understand that its arming of South Africa and refusing to end close military cooperation with the apartheid regime would be something South African blacks would not soon forget. A peace between Israel and the Palestinians with two states living side by side in peace would do much to end the deep hatred that millions of people feel toward Israel. Will they start loving Jews and Israel tomorrow? Of course not, but when millions of people don’t see on TV Israeli tanks and Israeli planes firing into Palestinian towns, there will come a time when the hatred turns to apathy. If Israel had a visionary leader there would be two states living side by side in peace and Israel’s best emissaries to the Arab world would be the Palestinians. Instead, the right wing predominates and absurdly clings to the belief that the Palestinians are all going to move to Jordan or disappear. They do not realize they are taking Israel down a dangerous road that leads over a cliff. All Palestinians are not Hamas or Islamic Jihad, and opinion polls continue to show that a majority of people on both sides favor a two-state solution. Israel will sadly soon have the choice of a one-state solution or apartheid if Israel’s government continues to create conditions on the ground that make a two-state solution impossible. We Jews who love Israel can see a vision of a better life for Israel and its Arab neighbors. The crime of the millennia was the murder of six million Jews, of which one million were children. Today, who is Israel’s second-best friend after America? Germany. If that can happen, then we should never, ever lose hope for a true and lasting peace for Israel and the Palestinians. It’s only impossible if you believe it to be so.
7. EXCELLENTphoto, if I may say so...
Gideon Reader ,   USA   (09.17.11)
Hmmm. Quartet, eh? Let me see. There are five (5) people in the picture, dinkweed!! No wonder they are all EFFED up.
8. # 2 idiot ( we can live in peace together)
Palestinian   (09.17.11)
He meant the Palestinians refugees suffering for 63 years because they lost their homes, where they were born in, some left to save their lifes (Deir Yassin, Kofer Kassam massacres -Irgun, Hagana gangs from Europe) Palestinians want to live in peace and freedom in FREE PALESTINE.
9. #1 Jihad Jane on EU passport
Cynthia ,   USA   (09.17.11)
"freedom, independence, and sovereignty" while kassams continue to bash Israel. Pot calling kettle black.
10. Skeptics and Extremits, move away !!!
Joe Asfoor ,   Burke,USA   (09.17.11)
I am hoping that all this last minute activity, meetings, and contacts between parties concerned, will give way to Peace, whether skeptics and extremists will it or not. What other options do we have , people of goodwill, tell me !!! I am sure Israeli and Palestinians making great efforts and sacrifices to rear their children for a better future yearn for the same peace. Will it come tomorrow, day after tomorrow, next week, next year ? I hope it comes sooner than later. In the meantime skpetics and fanatics, move away !
11. nour none state's diet
daze ,   US   (09.17.11)
Hey none state, you like that steak tartar? Scientific fact: In raw beef (steak tartar) there's a good chance, especially in your neck of the woods, that the meat contains eggs, that when ingested, become parasitic worms in your body, even traveling to your brain and impairing brain function. Whoa, am I onto something?
12. mideast quartet meet in NY.
Elsie. ,   Gush Halav   (09.17.11)
I am gob-smacked, i have never seen Israel in such a panic mode as she is now, and for what?? gob-smack is the only 2 words i can find right now.
13. UN not fit for purpose; disband it
Tarbouche ,   Aswan   (09.17.11)
The USA, must stop funding the UN now dominated by evil agendas and not fit for purpose. FUEV old NAZI organ, going back to1941 now peddling Human Rights, speak for dis-enfranchising Jews from a right to a State, France Germany and England caused most of current problems Russia played peter against Paul and armed illigitimate terrorist nations in the area. How the hell can three out of having malicious histories against Israel & Jews solve any of our problems
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (09.18.11)
