1. OK... and what new info is presented in this article?
Rafi ,   US   (01.15.12)
2. Except that
Misha ,   Tel Aviv   (01.15.12)
When these folks, the Brotherhood, take over the government in Egypt they'll have so much on their plate there won't be any space or energy left for Israel. It's easy to talk radical when you are in opposition, quite another when you are in power. I think Israel will actually benefit from the entry into government of the Islamist parties.
3. The word is "conceals" not "downplays"

4. Jews are the only civilisation
Susya Bar Dror ,   IL   (01.15.12)
which survived 4000 years history. No wonder, muslims hate us. No wonder christians hate us. The real miracle is, that we survived despite haredim.
5. Danger Downplayed in the western media
DavidM ,   USA   (01.15.12)
Anyone following the western news media would have no idea of the venomous attacks on Jews and others in the middle east. At the New York Times, columnist Roger Cohen portrays Iran as a happy place for Jews. His colleague Thomas Friedman repeatedly assures his readers that the Saudi sheikhs want peace with Israel because they whispered it into his ear on a visit to the kingdom.
6. Jews are Just the First
BG ,   NYC, USA   (01.15.12)
What the Western world needs to understand is that the Islamists won't stop their murderous ambitions with the Jews. We are just their first target. Next target? Christians. We of the West should already be planning to completely isolate these Islamist regimes as we are trying to now do to Iran. Let them support themselves, let them provide every necessity for themselves, let them develop and manufacture all their own technology and medicine. Let them continue to cook their meals over camel dung and use their urine as a medicinal remedy. And let them eat sand because we will boycott their oil and they produce nothing else beyond murder. We must completely shut them off from the civilized and modern world until they renounce their hatred and murderous ambitions.
7. The only peace treaty that....
Steve from Raleigh   (01.15.12)
Western 'liberals' want to tear up is the one between Egypt and Israel. If the Muslims Brotherhood showed up at the Obama White on a throne of the skulls of Jews, Obama would offer them the job of running his Jewish outreach program.
8. #5.David: What do you think?
Tom ,   USA   (01.15.12)
What is the ethnicity of the chief Israel basher T, Friedman and R. Cohen? And Soros and the Jstreet guys? Want to guess?
9. # 2, Drug addicts overdosed with

islamic opium,don't think rationally.
10. This Christian does not ...
Roger ,   Lima, USA   (01.15.12)
Hate the Jews. I pray for peace for the Jews everyday. That is because your G-d is my God. The Jews have been promised this land in which they now live. I have received my salvation through Yeshua who is a Jew and who will someday be recognized as the Messiah by His people.
11. Islamist hatred towards everyone
jeff ,   Beverly Hills, CA   (01.15.12)
they hate everyone
ISSY HASS ,   Ra'anana-Israel   (01.15.12)
13. @ 11... We never had these problems with Islamists
Edithann ,   USA   (01.15.12)
until there was an Israel...Can you remember that far back Jeff? TATA
14. Ethnicity NYT Friedman + cohen
JamesPhiladelphia ,   Philadelphia, usa   (01.15.12)
They are self hatred Jews. Soros also. I have ignored them for a long time. My advise is do not waist your time Israel has other priorities. TheNew York Times has become desperate because their anti Israel diatribes have failed. Thomas Friedman and Roger Cohen are wild dogs barking to a vacuum.
15. REMOVAL hostile MAGNET buildings Temple Mount ACT OF PEACE.
Jerry ,   The Netherlands   (01.15.12)
16. No #2. There's no "except that..."
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (01.15.12)
When the Brotherhood takes over they will not be able to feed and employ all the Egyptians. They will not be able to hold back the fundamentalist hatred that will attack the Egyptian Coptic population. And when Arab dictators can't manage their own affairs, we know too well what they do to get the people's minds off of their corrupt and incompetent bungling - they will blame Israel. When they are in power, we have to worry that they'll screw up and not be able to handle it. Then they'll do everything they can to make our lives miserable - including war - to divert attention from the fact that they are not smart enough nor powerful enough to gain office and keep it legitimately.

18. #8 Friedman & Cohen Israel bashing
DavidM ,   USA   (01.15.12)
Thomas Friedman and Roger Cohen are examples of jow the western media rewards journalists of Jewish descent if they will bash Israel. They give the likes of Roger Cohen a platform and a fine income so long as they can use his ancestry to attack Israel. If he were not willing to bash Israel Roger Cohen would be stil be assigned to small town city council meetings.
19. BIG ISRAEL only way to save Islam from Islamists.
Jerry ,   The Netherlands   (01.15.12)
20. Edithann you are so stupid that it isn't funy.
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (01.16.12)
"We never had these problems with Islamists until there was an Israel." Ever heard the US Marine Corps hymn? "From the Halls of Montezuma To the Shores of Tripoli" Guess where Tripoli is. That's right get your head out of your ass and look on a map - it is in Libya. And a US President named Thomas Jefferson had a problem with Islamic pirates taking American civilians and their ships. Enslaving the people and selling the ships. That was back in 1794, and this was because of Israel. Stupid slut.
21. #13 and #20
Justin ,   Canada   (01.16.12)
Gee, you are absolutely right. And let's not forget Islamic Spain and Turkish conquests. Edithann, it does you no good to believe in such foolishness, nor will it save you.
22. # 1
Birdi ,   Israel   (01.16.12)
For you, nothing, for us, everything.
23. #10, but then we would be Christians. I tried that for a
Henry from New York ,   USA   (01.16.12)
while before I rediscovered my Jewish heritage. It really was not my thing, this whole Christianity business. Too much focus on death, not enough celebration of life. If you are enjoying it though, good on you.
24. To: Roger at No. 10
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.16.12)
I appreciate your sentiment, but you can lose the idea of Jewish acceptance as Jesus as the Messiah. Thanks for your support. I only hope that such support is not contingent upon Jewish acceptance of Jesus as the Messiah. That's not going to happen.
25. To: No. 13
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.16.12)
Excuse me, but do you mean to suggest that the Iranian "students" invaded the United States Embassy in Teheran because of Israel? Or that the Marine Barracks in Beirut were blown up because of Israel? Are you REALLY that stupid? It would appear the answer to that is "Yes, you really are that stupid."
26. It's not downplaying, Meir - Khamis was an Arab man
Miron ,   USA   (01.16.12)
Islamist if you wish, he was murdered by same people who target Israel. Cowardly bastards using kids to shed blood.
27. To nr 13 - So you hold Jews responsible for US-Moslem..
Alexander ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (01.16.12)
...relations? Did it ever occur to you that both America and Moslems have a free will? If Moslems hate Israel alone then why did they strike against WTC and Pentagon? That's not located in Israel - that's located in the USA. If Moslems hate Israel alone why do they terrorize Christians all over the world and Hindus in India and Buddhists in Asia? Is that too because of the Jews? So if I understand your anti-Semitic mind correctly: no matter what happens it's always the Jews' fault - even if we didn't do anything? If we exist - that is a "provocation" to Moslems and if Moslems feel "provoked" then it's obviously the Jews' "fault" that their existence "provokes" Moslems and it's of course the Jews' fault that Moslems attack America? 1400 years of Moslem Jew hatred has existed because of the Koran. Christians and Moslems have fought each other for centuries and slaughtered each other in thousands. Have you forgotten that dear Edithann? Stupid anti-Semitic slut. TATA.
28. #17 There lies the problem....
Phil ,   Ireland   (01.16.12)
...with your philosophy. No matter how many times Israel offers peace to the Muslim world, and no matter how many times the UN tries to force Israel into giving the Palestinians everything they want, Islam has to be given primacy. Equality in religion is alien to Islam. NO WONDER YOU/YOUR TYPE CAN NEVER(NOT EVER) GET IT RIGHT AND SO ON (sic)
29. We are a band of idiots,we should never
Yossi   (01.17.12)
recognise this sect of cut throats.-- returning their compliments. The only joy I derives from reading their venimous harangues, is this 'verse' " dying in the way of allah is our highest hope ".My only wish is that they would speed-up this most wordly process; say a million at a time? I don't think it's too much to ask, and it should please their allah immensely.. Qarawadi you vile pig, a divine punishment is a well deserved prize for uttering this nonsense and upsetting your allah. You jerk, didn't you know that Jerusalem has been Jewish even before you were born? (a calamity) tell this to your gang of desperados' and it will remain Jewish t'il the end of eternity.
30. The cross and the crescent
Yossi   (01.17.12)
To Issy Hass of Ra'anana. # 12 The churches to remain silent?. In the past, churches behaved toward non-believers the same way mosques behave today toward non-believers. With time, having acquired respect and dignity?, churches are satisfied to let islamic hordes do the job for them.---- handle the jewish problem.
