1. How many refugees can this tiny country take?
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (01.10.12)
I'm as humanitarian as anyone else, but really, where do we put all these refugees? The ones coming from Africa are living in the streets, slums or the ghetto prison. Do we really want Israel to be a refugee country ?
2. Arab-run UN should be discussing where these people will go
Scott ,   QLD Australia   (01.10.12)
The joke has started already. This is exactly what the arabs have done with their 'brothers' in Balestine. Left them there to rot and cause problems. There should be a plan in place for these potential refugees entering the Golan to be ferried to arab countries. Where is the UN? Why arent they talking about this? Waiting for the last resort?
3. Yes, iysraiel should take all of them!!!!

4. Why us?
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.10.12)
Let the Turks take them in. We have enough Arabs who are disloyal to Israel. If the Turks won't take them, send the United Nations into Syria to see to the needs of any dislocated individuals. But do not, under ANY circumstances, allow them into Israel. There is no shortage of Arab countries who can provide a safe haven to their brother Arabs. Israel is not a trash can.
5. Insanity
Al   (01.10.12)
Gantz works up a storm to throw Jews out of Judea Samaria but is prepared to invite potential enemy to Israel. Insanity rules the asylum.
6. Alewite refugees in our Golan Heights
Steve Goodman ,   Israel   (01.10.12)
Gen. Gantz you have lost your mind,,,,,Asad supporters allowed to get into our Golan as refugees......let Turkey or some other arab nation worry about their well being.....your job is to protect our well get the message soldier......
No WAY ,   Israel   (01.10.12)
More Arabs in Israel Who came up with this stupid idea?
8. Now I am sure the country has gone mad!
David ,   Karmiel, Israel   (01.10.12)
The Alawites are Assad's people! They, above all, want to to destroy Israel! Next we'll give Assad political asylum! Ridiculous laws, fascist behavior and throwing water on Knesset members are one thing now it must be obvious to anyone with smallest brain that the Government has now gone completely off its rocker!
9. There must be some nazi-refugees somewhere in the world
tom ,   tel aviv   (01.10.12)
we can take under our loving wings?!
10. Benny Ganz stop taking hallucanogenic drugs or go to Rehab!
Oren ,   Tel Aviv   (01.10.12)
We ahve untold problems with the Arabs & Muslims already in this most tiny tiny Jewish state. They all want us removed - both from our homeland and from this planet. Banny Ganz is behaving like the lunatic Moshe Dayan - when the IDF captured Jerusalem that imbecile handed over the keys of the Temple Mount to the Arabs!!!! No referendem, not a single Israeli was consulted nor given a chance to dis/agree. Look at the mess Moshe Dayan created. Benny Ganz wants to follow in Dayan's foot steps. Why not merely hand over the Jewish State of israel to Hamas. That is the same as taking in Syrian refugees. They have enough bretheren and Arab & Muslim lands to evacuate themselves to. Benny Ganz et al. you need to go to an detoxification program!
11. Army Chief Gantz is the ENEMY of Israel1
12. Gantz's wife is a RADICAL LEFTIST ATHEIST who believes in
Israels ,   destruction!   (01.10.12)
13. Alawites??
Yisraeli   (01.10.12)
And for whom would these alawites be cheering for when seeing missile barrages being sent into Israel, will they side with the Israelis who saved their miserable lives? or cheer their arab bretheren including those that fought against them? Grow up israel.
Daniel ,   Great Neck, NY   (01.10.12)
Have Lebanon take them in, or Jordan. We don't need enemy combatants penetrating our borders. If the IDF feels the need to be humanitarian, let it be nicer to the ""settlers"".
15. The Gesture Won't Be Appreciated
Marty ,   Toronto, Canada   (01.10.12)
In the perverted logic that pervades the Arab world it will be seen as "Zionist meddling" rather than a "humanitarian gesture" . It will not be appreciated by the "refugees" - they won't show any gratitude - more than likely they will behave like the female suicide bomber from Gaza who was headed for the Bersheva hospital that saved her life. I also hope that they all don't line up to come to Canada either.
16. Why not lebanon, Jordan, the turks, why us??
Mike ,   Raanana Israel   (01.10.12)
17. valuable intel
aqua UK   (01.10.12)
It's the army, they want them for all the intelligence, that they can provide.
18. KEEP THESE ASSHOLES OUT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (01.10.12)
The Alawites have always been Israels enemies !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
19. BLOCK the entrance for Israels enemies !
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (01.10.12)
20. STOP this FLAWED thinking !!!!
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (01.10.12)
If these morons will ever reach Israels soil, they will switch to become "Palestinians" in the blink of an eye !!!!!!
21. Syrian Refugees
mgray38 ,   Miami, FL   (01.10.12)
Resettlement of 150,000 Alawites and Christians in Israel would be exactly the same gesture as North African countries taking in Jews to save them from the Nazis. How many Jewish families owe their lives to righteous Muslims and others who protected them. Do you think the Nazis of the Muslim Brotherhood will be any different then the Nazis of Germany and their European helpers? Wake up Israel. You have a sworn duty to do this, and believe me when I say this I am an ultra Hawk when it comes to Israel.
22. Jewish Refugeees
Rochel ,   Los Angeles USA   (01.10.12)
Why don't you take in Jewish refugees?
23. Syrian refugees??
yaffa ,   jerusalem   (01.10.12)
Is Gantz MAD???????? Do we not have enough Sudanese on our hands? Plus Filipinos and others who never go home and who marry and set up families here. What does he want to do - swamp the country with foreigners and enemies? For this I'd go out and protest!! The answer is NO NO NO!!!
24. most peculiar?
tom ,   toronto, canada   (01.10.12)
yes, the idf must prepare contingency plans, but why is the chief of staff making this one public? and if israel is preparing to accept refugees from syria, why the alawi, and not the opposition, who have been slaughtered in the thousands over the past couple of months? does this mean that israel is siding with the assad regime? that would be very foolish, since it could only antagonize the new regime which will inevitably replace assad, and destroy an opportunity for a fresh beginning and a less northern border. most peculiar indeed!
25. good idea
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (01.10.12)
The Sunni consider the Alawi only a bit better than the Jews, and if Assad falls the Sunni will massacre these poor people. For the sake of peace and humanity, Israel should accept Christian, Alawi and Druze refugees in exchange for Sunnis currently squatting in all parts of Israel, including Judea and Samaria. The Sunni (who call themselves "Palestinian") will live under whatever rule they want. The Christians, Alawi and Druze will live in Israel as citizens with full rights and obligations.
26. Alawites and Druze
Naftush ,   Israel   (01.10.12)
together on the Golan Heights? Has anyone in the Kirya considered the possibility that the mixture will ignite Round 2 of the Syrian uprising in Israeli territory?
27. WTF is wrong with this country?!
yair ,   il   (01.10.12)
28. tell mr Gantz
Michel ,   Lebanon   (01.10.12)
that Alawites leave mostly in the north-west of Syria, far from Golan. so he is either stupid or playing games
29. uneducated Ynet readers
anti-anti ,   uganda ; )   (01.10.12)
guys and girls, calm down and stop barking. gantz made this comment to fuel the ongoing conflict in syria. by offering alawites shelter in occupied golan, sunni arabs can now show the "non-muslimness" of alawites. this comment by gantz was made with a special reason. stop barking here guys and girls. it will never happen
30. Prepare to keep infiltrators OUT.Prepare for VICTORY=BALANCE
