1. Clinton blames the wrong people for his own failures
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (09.23.11)
The bottom line is that Clinton failed to deliver, as did all other presidents and Palestinian leaders and Israeli prime ministers after him. Picking out Bibi for blame is like saying that Clinton's infidelities with other women were Hilary's fault.
2. Of course G-d does not want ME Peace!
John ,   Europe   (09.23.11)
If it is prophesied that the Era of Shabbat will start on 6000th, then there is about 300 more years of turbulence. Even the imminent loss of West Bank and the previous loss of Gaza is a message, a warning, and a sign that Bnei Israel still are not on the acceptable level of humanity, charity, serenity etc. to be left in peace and to be a light to the nations. This is clear as day. So - wars, please, continue.
3. Mr Bill Clinton
Ivan ,   South Africa   (09.23.11)
Your article makes a lot of sense only if Gaza was out of the picture, as they, Hamas, will never accept the State of Israel, so how can the U.N. grant the Palestinians a statehood to a divided country.
4. Well, well.
John ,   Tel-Aviv   (09.23.11)
This comes from a man that turned Land of Israel into his own political gamble, some sort of a child playing with a toy, saying - Oops when a piece of a toy gets crashed in his hands. Outrageous. Countless Israelis paid with their lives for his Nobel Prize adventures. There's Israeli blood on his hands. This holier-than-thou wise old man started bombing countries in order to cover his own sexual misdemeanour, and now he preaches to us and dissects our society, how dare he? Isn't it time he started growing flowers in his own garden instead of playing with our lives and telling us that we are so reluctant when it comes to our survival to buy his outlandish ideas. Racist. - Russian immigrants don't exactly fit in your cozy world view, "enemies of peace/people" Mr Clinton-Stalin? Who the hell are you?
5. clinton ,   u.k   (09.23.11)
Today he blames Bibi for lack of peace, in his book he blamed Arafat.Is it possible his ego is working the blame game
6. Bibi is still around big time, while Clinton has left...
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (09.23.11)
for less greener pastures. On a secondary note, we all know who wears the pants in the Clinton household.
7. Clinton is gullible in regard to Palestinian intentions
Shalom Freedman ,   Jerusalem Israel   (09.23.11)
It's so simple. You believe that the Palestinians 'want peace' because they tell you they want 'peace'. But just look a bit under the surface. What does Abbas repeatedly say? He repeatedly says 'peace' means Israel accepting the descendants of the 48 refugees. i.e. It means a peace in stages toward Israel's destruction.
8. Is Hamas a Partner for Peace?
Steven A. ,   Bay Area, USA   (09.23.11)
Even assuming that Abbas represents moderate Palestinians in the West Bank, he is still connected to Hamas in Gaza. Perhaps Clinton overlooks this fact. To say this is the "finest government they've ever had in the West Bank" isn't saying much. Unless Palestinians are willing to make peace, they won't be able to handle their own state.
9. "I NEVER had relations with that woman"
rivka ,   los angeles   (09.23.11)
Yes, Billy, you LIED. You lied to Congress and you lied to the American people - and you continue to lie and pander because you love all those Arab donations to your ponzi library. It didn't take you long to figure out how many billions Jimmy Carter pocketed from the Saudis to 'bash' Israel, and you want your share...... Bibi is ten times the man you will never be - and he does not need your advice or critique.
10. the fact that...
nva ,   jerusalem   (09.23.11)
so many people have such hatred for & try to bring down Netanyahu...the Clintons, the Soros's, the Greenbergs, the Wexler's etc. ..even by interferring in Israeli domestic affairs, should show us that Bibi is the greatest threat to their anti Israel agenda. Their fear of a strong Israel is so obvious there is no limit to how low they will go to distort the facts, arrange disasters just to satisfy their voracious appetite for something even beyond power.
11. Clinton
Abraham Nachmias ,   Petach Tikva IL   (09.23.11)
Nobody respects this person, he remembers our leaders? Does he remember Monica? That's the true Clinton, a man with no morale, just lust for power!
12. Arafat rejected the proposal
You will never know why
13. Clinton..You don't have to be a rocket scientist
Mark ,   Lodz, Poland   (09.23.11)
"For reasons that even after all these years I still don't know for sure, Arafat turned down the deal I put together that Barak accepted," ...How about Yasser Arafat, his PLO and offshoots didn't...and still don't...want peace. It's in their Charter, Bill
14. Clinton, absolutely right
Mike ,   UK   (09.23.11)
Israel is losing not only her traditional friends but Jews also. I find it unpalatable to support a country -even as a jew- that disregards reality and clings to expansionists ideology. Israel is not a home for jews but a State run by religious and right wing nutters.
15. The Palestinians: Perhaps their most amazing secret @
16. Yearning for the past means not being ready for the future!
Yael Schlichting ,   Raubling - Germany   (09.23.11)
17. Oh Bill Clinton : You are Such a Liar
Tarbouche ,   Aswan   (09.23.11)
Bill Clinton is no dummy. He must recognise the changing situation of Israel's security needs Arabs want to destroy Israel, yet Bill does not make allowances Iran wants to wipe it out Erdogan wants Ask why nearly 200 million arabs can't take back the palestinians originating from these countries and only got to Israel from the 1920's for work Ask why it's OK to have 900000 Jews cleansed out of Arab lands but not 800000 Arabs, scared by their leaders to abandon their homes/ Bill Clinton : You are such a liar Go find another Monica
18. Monica
Raam ,   Israel   (09.23.11)
The problem is not his lies. The problem is that a Jewish girl got down on her knees under his table and.... Is this the position that Israel holds in the eyes of US leaders?
19.  zipper problems
Robert ,   farmington,wv   (09.23.11)
No it was clinton's zipper problems that kept peace from happening while missiles was being launched at israel clinton was back at home saying quote " I did not have sex with that women."
20. I wonder how much money slick bill got
jason white ,   afula, israel   (09.23.11)
from the arabs for his library and foundation? Also those speaking gigs in arab countries pay well, even for an impeached president. Even for an impeached president married to a vicious anti semite sec of state. This is the best palestinian government? Just how many have they had? Also a couple of years have gone by since abu abb-ass finished his last term in office. No new elections and he is still in office. We do not want to commit national suicide by going back to the pre 1967 lines. Let the illegal pali settlers get off our land! They took our land in 1948. The limies gave them over 75% of our Jewish homeland. Jerusalem was ours before mohammad and islam, it will be our eternal Jewish capitol forever!
21. Bill Clinton
jim Brown ,   TN USA   (09.23.11)
Yeah Clinton. Sharon have Gaza to the Arabs. What a deal. And wasn't Monica a Jew?
22. Bill Clinton.....
Shalom ,   U.S.A.   (09.23.11)
The new Jimmy Carter.
23. Mr. Clinton: You need to get on Ha'Shem's side. Ha'Shem
Rivkah   (09.23.11)
loves Benyamin Netanyahu and your wife lost the democrat nomination for US President to a Barack (Barack Obama) because you caused Netanyahu to lose a PM election in the 1990's to a Barak (Ehud Barak). Yes, Ha'Shem loves Ariel Sharon. But in the ELS Scripture codes, Ehud Barak and Yitzak Rabin are called traitors. Ha'Shem anciently gave much land to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. To give that land to anyone else as the British and U.N. have done is to call Ha'Shem a liar and that is dangerous ground to tread on. Get on God's side or the Palestinians will die by God's hand. Zephaniah the Prophet in Scriptures calls Palestinians, Philistines and says ALL the Philistines on the coasts of Canaan (Israel) will die after Gaza is forsaken (by Jews), Ashkelon is a desolation and Ekron and Ashdod are driven out in the noon day. How is Ha'Shem going to kill the Palestinians? Other Scriptures indicate by water and by fire. Fire from the sky and tsunamis from the Mediterranean Sea.
24. 6 Noodles, Coney Island: Bill Clinton wears the pants in his
Rivkah   (09.23.11)
family or he would have divorced his wife instead of being what Ha'Shem says to do: marriage until death parts the couple, longsuffering, for better or for worse. Rabbi Yeshua said anyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery and anyone who marries a woman who is divorced causes her to commit adultery. That is the adultery that was avoided by not divorcing and remarrying. What occurred was not morally right but was not Rabbi Yeshua's definition of adultery since the marriage did not end. Fornication would be a possible description and sins of the heart but adultery means to divorce and remarry, breaking a vow to Ha'Shem that only Ha'Shem can break and only on very narrow grounds. I hope Mr. Clinton supported his Black son Danny by an Arkansas prostitute so that he will not be turned away from God's Kingdom for not providing for his own. I also hope he provides for Monica Lewinsky. The Patriarch Jacob had two wives and two concubines and he supported them all and the children which is what is required of a man by Ha'Shem. I haven't read any stories of Monica Lewinsky in poverty on skid row, so she is being provided for even if that is providing a job for her through friends. Her hopes for marriage were ended by the scandal and Bill Clinton has an obligation to her as well as to Hillary.
25. Clinton= Ego= Israeli Buses Explode
Adi ,   Jerusalem   (09.23.11)
Clinton= Ego= Israeli Buses Explode
26. Unmitigated chutzpah
Rafael ,   Yerushalayim   (09.23.11)
Yea, the "best" government the pals ever had is a corrupt incompetent kleptocracy, manned by Holocaust deniers and real live terrorists. And those are the "moderates."
27. Clintonh, Just shut up
Shalom ,   Ashdod, IL   (09.23.11)
Clinton was, is and will continue to be the greatest STAIN on the US presidency
28. What, Natanyahu the guilty one....?
tiki ,   belgium   (09.23.11)
Did Clinton miss the 'LOGO in the Pallies flag. It shows their aim, 'loud & clear: No Pallie state NEXT to Israel, but a Pallie state INSTEAD of Israel. His 'longings for the good old days'....that's 'precicely Abbas game & aim. Both are yesterdays news!
29. Bill Clinton blaming Netanyahu
Ben ,   Belgium   (09.23.11)
AfterBaraks offer, and Oslo accords, they responded with a violent intifada, Killing innocent civilians, woman & children, they pray hate against Israel, they name squares after murderers, firing missles after they have Gaza all for themselves, and now they want to go back as if nothing has happened, do they realy think the Israelis are stupid. Palastinian history is full of regerets and mistakes, Others shouldnt blamed for them.
30. Hey does Monica ?
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (09.23.11)
And ...oh yes, she is to blame for the election of GWB...and NOT you...LOLLL
