1. When Washington annnces its policy, one can refer to it, and
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (02.10.12)
since Washington, DC is not governed by a British based Arabic newspaper, it is difficult to see this "news" report but as an attempt for misinformation. Also, while Mr. B.H.Obama, known for his built-in hostility towards Israel and his disregard for international law when it comes to the Arab Israeli conflict, is capable of dong a lot of bad things, he is not yet Israel's president or prime minister. Israel's policy will be determined by the democratically elected officials of the liberal democratic independent nation-state of the Jewish people.
H ROSEN ,   PA USA   (02.10.12)
Whether Washington accepts such a deal is immaterial. This is a boon for Israel since the Israelis no longer need to negotiate with the new entity since it includes Hamas, I do not think Israel is unhappy with the status quo and militarily the situation is the same. For Israel to make a deal with the new Hamas PLO government ..Hamas must become as benign as Lichtenstein. Not in our lifetime!
3. comiing 3 wars
marcel   (02.10.12)
since hezbollah and iran target all of israel and west bank, war will elimiate the palestinian issue especially since iron dome and aarow will not protect judean and samaran centres of population, I suggest to all of the arabs to leave befor ethe war because hezbollah missiles will be targeting your homes. Look how assad targets innocent arabs. Run, flee your homes voluntarily. and when al yaahoud takes revenge for hezbollah homes,w atch out. allah akbar.
4. Obama
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (02.10.12)
The Hamas charter clearly states that the only way to achieve peace is the extermination of every Jewish man, woman and child. Obama now openly supports Hamas, fully in line with his mentor Jeremiah Wright.
5. Maybe Common Sense Is Still Alive In Washington, DC?
World Citizen ,   the world   (02.10.12)
Washington knows Israel's strategy is to divide and conquer. The Palestinian people are one people. With non-violent tactics and the BDS Movement Israel can be tamed. This is a social justice movement. This is a movement against racial, economic, ethnic, and religious intolerance.
6. Hamas is a cancer
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (02.10.12)
which must be excised before any talks can take place, since it has clearly and emphatically said that it would never negotiate with Israel
7. Hamas is a US recognized terrorist entity
Bad Ased Jew   (02.10.12)
and the US has ( until Obama ) refused to speak to Hamas. By uniting both Fatah and Hamas, they are both now allied terrorists. Talks are a joke. Obama is wide open for legal review of the US own policies. He will be gone after the next election. BUILD BABY BUILD !!!! Make Jerusalem israel's capitol. vote Romney.
8. baa... Hamas killed more Gazans than Assad ever will.
Miron ,   USA   (02.10.12)
And such appreciation from White House... Aunt Zeitunia son in law?
9. face facts
iraj   (02.10.12)
1) mutual sharing of israel does not work. 2) 2 narratives have nothing in common. Arabs believe that they are the original inhabitants and jews believe likewise. Arabs say they come from the canaanites who preceded the israelites. 3) arabs can break pacts on the second's notice. 4) islam brooks no tolerance with judaism. Simply keep status qup, stay on guard and convince non loyal arabs to leave.
10. Actually its ok
Mea   (02.10.12)
Israel may now legitimately thumb her nose at Obama when Hilary gets bitchy about new talks. Screw them. Let's see the US Congress sit still on this. They either step up to the plate and call this down, or never again demand Israel come to the table.
11. The US and obummer support racism!!
Don Rosenberg ,   Palatine USA   (02.10.12)
Time for the truth to come out. The arabs are racist and terrorists, both the pa and hamas. No difference. By supporting these racist murderers with support racism and terrorist. Completely stupid policy pandering to stupid arabs and oil money. Obummer has no shame. Time for the west to confront the racist muslim onslaught and defend the civilized world from these ingrates.
12. muzlum obumma ensures NO successful peace talks now.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (02.10.12)
13. Fat and Happy
Ariela ,   USA Somewhere   (02.10.12)
Keep them all Fat and happy in the interim they will become apathetic just like American who are fat and happy. Learn from the ants.
14. To World Citizen
Adela ,   New York, USA   (02.10.12)
World Citizen, you say, "BDS Movement Israel can be tamed....This is a movement against racial, economic, ethnic, and religious intolerance." You meant to say "BDS Movement Israel can be DESTROYED....This is a movement OF racial, economic, ethnic, and religious intolerance."
15. #6 Another Ass Claiming World citizenship
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (02.10.12)
You can't divide what never existed in he first place. The Quran makes no claim to your fictional Palestine, which never existed as an independent country Pallestine was ruled by Romans, Ottoman Turks & Britihs, never by any so-called Palestinian's I defy you to name its Ancient Capital City and the last three Palestinian's that ruled it
