J.K. ,   Brooklyn USA   (12.25.11)
2. If it was really done for the sake of not going based on
Henry from New York ,   USA   (12.25.11)
media opinion, then I'd applaud it. However, it seems like this was just done to keep things from escalating; in their minds.
3. The model Israeli and Israel to come! TATA
Edithann ,   USA   (12.25.11)
4. just a little taste of what's to come. keep watching
Son of Yaffa   (12.25.11)
When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained silent; I was not a communist. When they locked up the social democrats, I remained silent; I was not a social democrat. When they came for the trade unionists, I did not speak out; I was not a trade unionist. When they came for the Jews, I remained silent; I wasn't a Jew. When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out.
5. The Defense Council
Ruben Jacobi ,   UK   (12.25.11)
I think he could have done better than talk about the camera, a cuckoo in Fiji spitting with the wind blowing in the direction of Israel.
6. sounds like turkey
max ,   istanbul, turkey   (12.25.11)
keep treating your women like this and you and turkey will get along fine!
7. smile you're on candid camera...
Barry Bee   (12.25.11)
everyone everywhere, big brother is watching you... so be nice... don't spit...
8. I don't agree with what he did
Robert ,   NY USA   (12.25.11)
You should try and teach people. Especially, fellow Jews! BUT, why is there no reporting of wide spread extremism from the secular side? Too vile, violent, and pornographic to even put in a news paper. Or even speak about.
9. set good role models
alan ,   texas   (12.25.11)
Spitting on a woman because you don't agree with the way she is dressed, shows such intolerance as do arabs and other anti-Semites, and other hostile people. He doesn't deserve to be jailed, but should pay a very large fine for his repugnant action. He needs to ask for forgiveness, then add prayer and charity to become absolved of this offense. The Haredi community must stop their violence and teach their youngstesr also to act as responsible people. Fight your enemies, of which there are plenty, don't fight your brothers and sisters.
10. And, by the same token, alan #9, we
Robert Haymond ,   Israel/Canada   (12.26.11)
should not fight our brothers, the Charedim, but find a way to embrace them. Many are quite willing to converse, discuss and, most of all, joke and kibbitz. Many want to work but need to acquire viable skills. There are many young Charedim who do not fit in with the scholarly life and are set adrift as a result. Quite a few wish to join the IDF and, fortunately, the IDF are becoming responsive to their particular requirements. Finally, news agencies like Ynet, JPost and especially Haaretz fan the flames of alienation, reporting all the worst in the most negative way, setting up seculars and others to despise them. As you indicated, we are all Jews with massive enemies who surround us and wish us to disappear from the face of the earth. The Charedim breed children, Jewish children, in massive numbers. The birth of a Jewish child is both a miracle and a blessing. Each birth is an act of revenge against the forces which wished to decimate us. So I want to reinforce what you had to write. Furthermore, for your interests, I am not Charedi.
11. #3 Edithann - We could follow the Muslim
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (12.26.11)
model and hang him or stone him for expectoration Haven't you heard,they're going to hang or stone that woman in Iran for allegedly having adultery You can be the first to wear a Burkha in the USA, it would conceal the rot that lies beneath TaTa my M'tum Tam
12. #3 Edithann-Your preference would be
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (12.26.11)
that we emulate Muslim's in Canada? "Canada: Muslim 'honor killing' heats up national debate Afghan-born man, his wife, and their son on trial for allegedly killing daughters because they defied family rules on dress, dating and socializing. Psychiatrist: Immigrants can't practice their own cultural ideologies if they go against the grain" You can be the first in line to by a Burkha, it would conceal the rot that's underneath TaTa my M'tumTam
13. Spitting on women can't be intentional
Roger ,   USA   (12.26.11)
No decent man would ever do such a thing. I think these guys just have to spit but cannot spit accurately. I suggest knocking out a couple of their teeth to improve their aim.
14. #13 Roger, I'll Roger that
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (12.26.11)
However, instead of telling others to do it, you come on over and do it yourself Roger, Wilco & you're out of courage to do it yourself
15. That's a 10-9 Ben
Ypip ,   Canada   (12.26.11)
16. #9 alan, Texas
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (12.26.11)
What would suggest should be the penalty for Clinton, who spat in the face of all American's when he lied, under oath, swearing that "I never had sex with that woman" ? What gestures of atonement did he made, name just one ?
17. Intimidating women is NOT Jewish and NEVER OK
juli ,   sydney australia   (12.31.11)
This was an act of intimidation, disrespect and technically biological violence. It is a small step between spitting and hitting. Intimidating others is not ok, especially others who are smaller, weaker and not trying to confront you. This man's mother should be ashamed. She was a bad Jewish mother.
