1. It's all politics because Joseph is not buried there.

2. Gershon Mesika
Ariel Ben Yochanan ,   Kfar Tapuah, Efraim   (03.22.12)
B"H - If Gershon Mesika thinks he can cover up his terrible administration-record of the Shomron by these photo-ops, well, he is wrong. His bringing in xtians and missionaries to our land in particular, just because they say they “love us”, is unforgivable. Selling out the Land for xtians is no better than selling it out to the Arabs.

How do you know. Has you been there? At least the tradition is older than the Islam itself.
4. a waste of time
observer   (03.22.12)
unles a building is used for living - sleeping, eating or as a business - it does not require a mezuzah. This act is simply using a religious symbol as a pretext for a nationalist agenda
5. And this is what hes paid to do?
Haim ,   TA   (03.22.12)
So glad to see Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz has his priorites in order, obviously the transportation needs of the nation are all in good order if he has time for religious mumbo jumbo...
6. More and more mezuzot on more and more doorposts in SHCHEM.
Jerry ,   The Netherlands   (03.22.12)
7. What is the town's name
Jackie ,   Florida   (03.22.12)
Why does Ynet call the town Nablus? It is Shechem in Torah and was a town taken over by Jaob;s sons. The name Nablus is an Arab one used because the Arabs could not pronounce the name Neapolis, given the town by the Romans, in an attemopt to erase its conection with Judaism. Just like Palestine, a name the Arabs fail to pronounce correctly as well.

Gates also had mezuzahs. See #8. Your posts are a waste of time

David ,   Doesn't matter   (03.22.12)
Ariel, I just completed a prayer for you that the Almighty would take away your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh with His Torah written upon it so you will be able to see His great love which is extended to Christians as well as Jews.
11. Minister Katz should spend his time dealing with ...
David ,   Karmiel, Israel   (03.22.12)
the Railway Mafia trying to take over the rail system. They are making a fool of him and he is making a lot of noise doing nothing and they are laughing at him with Offer Eini and the Histadrut giggling in the background! Mezuzot are very nice but don' get people to work on time!
12. to # 10 the unlearned Jewish fool
Chaim ,   Itamar   (03.23.12)
Are you that unversed in Jewish law to say that hashem loves xtians too? There are entire talmudic tractates speaking of how hashem is a jealous G-d and hates foreign G-ds. The xtians not only believe in a oreign G-d but they try to steal our Jewish souls and convert us to their faith. Furthermore are you so out of touch with Jewish history? Have you no idea how many Jews have been murdered by xtians in the name of their so called lord? According to you does hashem love nazis as well? David, your a moron and people like you are more dangerous to the Jewish people than hitler Y"S was...
13. lie lie lie lie lie lie don't lie
Leah Goldsmith ,   Itamar Israel   (03.25.12)
#12- There is no chance you live on Itamar - stop lying - if you want to spit forth hate do it on your own expense and not on the backs of others.

Ariel Ben Yochanan ,   Kfar Tapuah, Efraim   (03.26.12)
B"H - It is perfectly reasonable and only natural, dear Leah Goldsmith, for any Jew to have fear of those so called Jews who side with xtians. We had them in the camps and in some cases they were worse than the Nazis themselves. If what you are insinuating is true, that is that Chaim is not from Itamar, it is indicative only of the presence of governance by fear and blackmail. When and where people are not threatened for the opinion they may hold, they write their names and true residences without - fear, you know. That is just the way it is. On this account, let me ask you here, dear Leah Goldsmith, how come that you are so sure of having no Jewish opposition to your xtianist policies in Itamar? Do you really think you control everyone's head in town from the inside? If so, I am certain it has nothing to do with the famous arrogance that comes with power. Well, Itamar had more than its fare share of tragedies. Maybe you should look into as to some of the possible whys?
