1. That's Right.
Rochel ,   Los Angeles USA   (01.10.12)
Build, baby, build!
2. WIN!
eye ,   JAHrusalem, Israel   (01.10.12)
Best news i heard in a long long time
3. Great News
Elly ben Aron   (01.10.12)
Thank you piz now
4. NGO
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (01.10.12)
"Peace Now" does not list its sources of fundings and was hysterical at the prospect of being outed. It is has been reported that they mostly receive money from the foreign ministries of anti-Israeli governments like Norway, Britain and the EU. Far from being an NGO, "Peace Now" is a foreign agent, bought and paid for, working for their foreign paymasters. In the US, "Peace Now" would be under scrutiny of the Counterespionage Section of the National Security Division of the Department of Justice.
5. Israel has every right to build. Build! Build! Build!
Besalel ,   Great Neck, NY   (01.10.12)
Last time I checked Israel was the Jewish homeland and Jerusalem the undivided eternal capital of the Jewish nation. If the Palestinians do not want to live peacefully in a tiny little fragmented demilitarized state then they should go live in other Arab countries that are much larger and militarized like Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi, etc etc. They can build as much as they please over there and we wish them much luck happiness and success in all of their endeavors there. Meanwhile, the Jewish people are expanding and Israel needs to apologize to nobody for building anywhere they want between the Jordan and the Mediterranean.
6. PLO Logo
Klutz   (01.10.12)
Has "Peace Now" seen the PLO logo lately? That's the torpedo to the "two state solution." Let alone the fact that there was belligerence even prior 1967. Peace Now and their goons at Haartz are just a bunch of muckrackers.
stude ham   (01.10.12)
don't let the invader enemies of our israel steal the lands from us. BUILD ISRAEL BUILD!
8. Peace Now
Abraham Nachmias ,   Petach Tikva IL   (01.10.12)
Danny Dayan forgets another fact that must be divulged and it's how useless Peace Now's work is! Maybe the anti Israeli bosses will kick Oppenheimer if they realize how bad his work is!
9. Peace (of the dead) Now
ike ,   chicago, usa   (01.10.12)
Build Baby, Build! "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the land."
10. Oh Peace Now... you somehow manage to brighten my day!
Etoile ,   Montreal, CAN   (01.10.12)
11. fake Pals should have never voided OSLO
J1 ,   EARTH   (01.10.12)
12. So what's a housing unit anyway?
Henry from New York ,   USA   (01.10.12)
Is it a catch-all for houses, apartments, etc? If not, then what is it and how many people can it hold?
13. Direct result of abbas "pre-conditions"
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (01.10.12)
14. Why are they compalining we have a housing crisis!!!!!
Avi ,   Israel   (01.10.12)
15. Construction in Judea & Samaria
JamesPhiladelphia ,   Philadelphia, usa   (01.10.12)
The only think is that Palestinians are the construction workers and are paid a whooping USA billion dollars. We should have Israeli workers doing the job. Palestinians belong to Jordan and Egypt.
16. And what about Arab building?
Jayjay ,   Israel   (01.10.12)
Peace now disgusts me....they only condemn Israel and totally ignore the amount of illegal Arab homes being built! Hypocrites!
DAVID ,   JUDEA   (01.10.12)
Many people build multiple units with their permits of one home and at least 30% build without permits, so the figure is close to 35% increase. Last year there were 160 families here this year there will be over 200.
18. Right on
BH ,   Iowa   (01.10.12)
It's Jewish land. Build all of Israel.
19. Still it's not nearly enough construction
Steven ,   San Francisco   (01.10.12)
The amount needs to triple and quadruple over the next couple of years. If not, dump Netanyahu and elect a true nationalist.
20. Peace Now, which opposes settlement
Mat ,   uk   (01.10.12)
Peace now should read this artical of Ynet Israel committing no crime
21. build, build?
robert   (01.10.12)
how many more houses, how many more people? Who is going to feed all those people twenty years from now? Where does Israel get the water? One-track minds?
22. Really bad news
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (01.10.12)
Should be a minimum 10 times as much as it is. Funny how thousands of terrorist attacks and the total refuse by the Arabs to negotiate never seems to harm there process - does it?
23. Build Build Build and Build more! Thank you for building.
Alan ,   SA   (01.10.12)
24. Gaza = Palestine !
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (01.10.12)
I have never ever heared of any new non-Arab constructions WHAT ???
25. Netanyahu
Dan ,   Jerusalem   (01.10.12)
Best PM since Joshua
26. There ain't gonna be no 2 state "dis"solution.... no in this
Mike ,   Israel   (01.10.12)
Arabs got all of this country they're gonna get. It's called JORDAN.
27. Wasn't illegal yesterday, isn't illegal today
William ,   Israel   (01.10.12)
It isn't illegal to build in Jerusalem, Israel's capital, and it isn't illegal to build in Israeli settlements which the "Palestinians" agreed to in 1993 by signing the Oslo Accords. Peace Now is trying to use an ICJ non-binding advisory position to claim illegality in lieu of the binding agreement between the Israelis and "Palestinians" themselves.
28. "Current pace endangers two-state solution"
William ,   Israel   (01.10.12)
well I guess then the "Palestinians" better get off their asses and make peace before it's too late, huh?
29. Impair 2-state solution? Another Peace Now hoax
Dr. L. Brnd ,   San Diego, USA   (01.10.12)
Even if every single Jewish community in Judea and Samaria were annexed to Israel and connected to it with a land bridge, it would not in any way impair the viability of an Arab state on the remaining 93 percent, which at its narrowest, the land between Bethlehem and Jericho, would be 14 miles wide, compared to only 9.5 miles wide for Israel at Kalkiliya. And as for the idiotic red-herring issue of "contiguity", the PA state is never going to be "contiguous", because Gaza will always be a separate piece. No "sovereign safe passage route" is going to happen, because then Israel wouldn't be "contiguous". Its a phony issue - the USA is in two separate parts [Alaska, separated by Canada], Oman is in two separate parts. So what if the "West Bank" were to be divided into separate pieces? They have to cross Israeli soil to get to Gaza anyway. More of Peace Now's Big Lie propaganda, funded by the EU, the originators of the Big Lie tactic.
30. That's what she said.
Maxim ,   ISRAELOAMERICAN   (01.10.12)
Yes! Yes! Yes! keep it up baby! keep it up and don't stop!.
