1. Truth can never be incitement
Tarbouche ,   Aswan   (11.22.11)
Since when a statement of fact can be seen as incitement? Mullahs wiped clean culture and civilisation, burned books, and kept muslims in the dark to assert their power. AG is a fool to kiss arse to be seen as holier than thou.
2. My goodness!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.22.11)
So the Arabs can say what they want against Jews until the cows come home, but we cannot respond in kind? We truly have gone through the looking glass. If you do not understand anything else, understand this: the Arabs will not rest until they have driven us out of our homeland. And that is not going to happen -- in this, or any other, lifetime. Deal with it.
3. xenophobia can be CURED through LAW. try it.
nice ,   tlv   (11.22.11)
4. backpedalling
robert   (11.22.11)
"that the State must act against terror supporting populations within the Arab sector, and not against the entire Arab sector." His mouth works faster than his is called Foot and Mouth disease.
5. Is freedom of speech illegal in Isarel?
Scott ,   Haifa   (11.22.11)
What did he say that was so criminal? Why doesn't our government persecute those Islamists who preach hate on the temple mount (and actually carry out their hatred)? I pray our government does not cower to Islam. We don't want to become like Britain.
6. This is incitement?
Rachel ,   US   (11.22.11)
Out of control judiciary.
7. he is 100% correct!!!
8. Nonsense
olavi ,   espoo, finland   (11.22.11)
The rabbi is speking truth. Do not imitate European code of conduct. This code will guarantee you be destroyed.
9. Freedom of Speech!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jake Stone ,   USA   (11.22.11)
10. @2 if u can say what u want y can't they?

Elsie. ,   Gush Halav   (11.22.11)
#2 MY GOODNESS!!, Sarah, even you know that what you are saying in your talkback, is not true, it is incitement, like it or not ,so deal with it.
12. yes, and while you are at it...
Larry ,   Los Angeles   (11.22.11)
How about clamping down on the Arabs for not renting apartments to Jews in Ramallah, Jenin and Shechem, to mention a few Arab cities.
13. ag
david ,   israel   (11.22.11)
investigate the attorney general for being a traitor...
14. Only civil war will destroy the LEFTIST judges!
15. Rabbi Elyahu's statements are not more shocking
Raphael ,   Netanya   (11.22.11)
Than Sheikh Raed Salah's. As far as I know, this racist thug was never sued by the attorney for hate incitements; Rabbi Elyahu has much more liberal views than most palestinian leaders, who give the names of Jew killers to their streets, forbid the access of Temple Mount to Jews, like under the turkish islamic rule, who deny any Jew to live across the 1967 green line, although they were settled in the Old City, Gush Etzion, Hebron for centuries.
16. To: No. 11
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.22.11)
Get a grip. It is not incitement; it is merely responding in kind. When Arabs do it, they're exercising their right to free speech, but when Jews reply, it's incitement? You are living in a fool's paradise.
17. Where are the investigations of muslim anti semites
Bernard Ross ,   st anns bay, jamaica   (11.22.11)
a govt that does not represent the interests of its people must step down. The wakf of jerusalem should be jailed for his libels.
18. Incitement or Truth?
Ed ,   USA   (11.22.11)
Apart from the last two statements, the quoted comments are entirely admirable. The Rabbi is speaking out against the abuse or women, the oppression of minorities, and the sanctioning of criminal activity. Rebuking the Rabbi for saying these things will only worsen the plight of Arab women.
19. The truth hurts and the Rabbi is right !!
Don Rosenberg ,   Palatine USA   (11.22.11)
Enough pandering to the ingrates, they are different from us and will always be racist and jealous of us Jews for our civiilization vs their barbarism. I don't think these ingrates will ever change. WE have a right to criticize and call them what they are !!!!!!!!! don't like it too baad !!!!
20. What about koran's "Kill the Christians and the Jews."
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (11.22.11)
Is the AG going to have the koran banned for incitement?
21. # 11
Birdi ,   Israel   (11.22.11)
Pray tell, why are the Arabs allowed to say whatever they want about us Jews & Israelis?? Whats your answer to this, clever clogs.

What do you expect from a leftie? (talkback 11)

Elsie ,   Gush Halav   (11.22.11)
Sarah, here in Israel, we all have the right to free speech, and we all use this tool, look at some of your talkbacks, i"m sure you make some people cringe, but thats your right, free speech, remember, i do it ,you do it, everybody does it,so don't play the innocent, it doesn"t become you. as for Birdie, please grow up.
24. # 23
Birdi ,   Israel   (11.22.11)
Madam I asked you a cival question, can you not give me an answer? please!
25. To: No. 23
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.22.11)
Presumably your embrace of the doctrine of free speech includes Rabbi Elyahu, does it not?
26. 11
john Darren ,   cairns-Australia   (11.23.11)
Your reply to Sarah's post is not very kind.Her post is absolutely spot on.
27. The meaning of free speech
Canadian lawyer ,   Toronto, Canada   (11.23.11)
Freedom of speech is the right to express opinions that are wrong, obnoxious, hateful and offensive - as the rabbi's opinions surely are.
