4. Besides the trees, these worthless scum killed animals
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (07.09.12)
living in the forest which are defenseless against arson. The US still funds "pal" schools that teach them to hate Jews, removing scum like is to other countries or executing them is the only answer.
5. Pyromaniacs

In the United States, arson is charged as attempted murder with aggravating factors, such as reckless disregard, willful destruction of property, and depraved indifference to human life. That's assuming no one dies. If someone does die, it's first degree murder which, in some states, is a capital offense, especially with aggravating factors attached. Most arsonists never see the light of day again. It is a particularly vicious crime. Life imprisonment would be an appropriate sentence for these depraved "youths." Dousing them with gasoline and setting them alight would be even more appropriate. Everyone should have a taste of their own medicine, don't you think?
6. #3- liar-care to provide details?

7. #3 They weren't released.
Roman ,   Lod, Israel   (07.09.12)
One was released "under condition" - basically means he'd been released into his parents' control until trial, and he *will* face charges. The other, per the original Ynet report, was due to be reviewed at the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court. Both will face charges, albeit charges as minors. The first was 13, the second 14 years old. In their favor stands the fact that they did not seek to harm lives, merely property. They will still face charges for arson and destruction of property. Here, in *this* case. we have older teens. Who will *not* face charges as minors. The acts also created a *much* larger fire, which could very well have resulted in loss of life. This goes beyond mere destruction of property. But in both cases, the perpetrators will face charges and, if found guilty, punished. Last time I checked, this was equality before the law, each group of defendants facing scrutiny based on the severity on their act and in a suitable consideration for their direct responsibility for their actions. But then again, I doubt you care much about the arson. You care far more about painting two teens involved here as Palestinian victims of Israeli injustice and inequality.
8. such matters as # 4

why does Israeli's fall asleep when it comes to arabs lighting fires for instance? I can only scratch my head at the Israeli complacency.

I have to ask, have you two brainiacs ever heard of Roten Singer (ironic name right), you know the Israeli moron who burned downed a forest in Chile? This caused the Chilean the tourism board and many other countless tourism boards across the world to include a special section in their travel books entitled "the Israeli tourist," on how pushy, rude and violent and cheap Israelis are! P.S. Should Roten Singer and other Jews have gotten the same punishment for the same crime, or are you just asking for the death penalty because they are Arabs, in any case your typical Jewish prejudice is showing!
10. #9 There is a difference...
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (07.09.12)
between deliberate arson and a fire started by accident or negligence.
11. 3. Stop ur ugly lies. No Jew was setting fires last week.
12. Deport them to Gaza
Steven ,   San Francisco   (07.09.12)
Why release them only to have them do this again?
13. #9
Madeleine ,   Rehovot Israel   (07.09.12)
Have you sen all these travel books 'across the world?' As for the Israeli tourist, believe me, he's no worse than tourists from other countries. But of course it's only the bad types that get noticed. The many thousands of Israel tourists who behave normally jsut don't attract attention. Here in Israel we know Americans as loud-mouthed, often vulgar, and pushy. Stereotyped? sure, there are also many thousands of decent American tourists, but lke their Israeli conterparts, these don't attract attention. Anyway, I hope you certainly don't ever set foot in our wonderful little country. Your Christian prejudice shows through.
14. To: No. 9
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (07.09.12)
Even the Chilean government acknowledged that it was an accident. Do you know the difference between setting a fire accidentally and a deliberate act of arson? Why don't you just pull your head out from where you usually keep it and think about it? Now, just f**k off, moron! Get an education.
15. To: No. 9, redux
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (07.09.12)
You may wish to travel the world someday and watch American tourists in action. Do you want to know why Americans are reviled and despised in foreign countries? Go have a look at those loud-mouthed, ignorant and impolite fools who cannot be bothered to learn another language, expect everyone to be fluent in English and put up with rude Americans. You will very quickly learn just what is meant by the "ugly American." I can assure you that they are not Jewish Americans, either. So please keep your anti-Semitism to yourself. No one's interested. For every story you can relate about a rude Israeli, I can tell you thousands of stories -- which I have personally witnessed -- about rude and boorish non-Jewish Americans, ranging in degrees of horror and embarrassment from a couple from Iowa who demanded to know if the "fish was fresh" while on the island of Patmos, to a couple who thought their six-year-old son was cute as he dodged the velvet ropes in the museum and climbed aboard the "Winged Victory." So just shut up. You're an ignoramus.
16. To: No. 3
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (07.09.12)
Documentation, please. Legitimate documentation. I'm not really interested in anything your fave KKK website has to say.
17. I seem to recognise the photo
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (07.09.12)
Strangely,the photo of one of the suspects,shown above,reminds me of photos that I see of violent,antisocial yobs in my local newspapers.The same cold expressionless faces. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
18. not good for his resumé
Shmuel ,   Brazil   (07.09.12)
whom will give him a job now?
19. #3 John "toilet is talking again"
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (07.10.12)
They weren't released, although you should be confined as a raving lloonie
20. Arsonists for allah?
Bad Ased Jew ,   United States   (07.10.12)
a newer break away cult from the original cult.? The 'fire brigade'? LOL
21. #3 - Oh Johnny Boy! Please response to Roman #7
William ,   Israel   (07.10.12)
Let's see if your "logic" skills also works with the facts. Though your ilk continue to paint issues with one anti-Israel brush, we see the issues are much more complex, just as they are in the rest of the world. Now ask yourself - if this situation occurred in the US, exactly the same, would you still claim racism and a lack of democracy. Of course not - because you're not racist to the US, are you?
22. To #3
Spencer ,   Israel   (07.11.12)
John #3 can't respond to#7 because he is plain and simple an anti Semite and wont do anything that might detract from this fact.. People like John are one of the reasons that the Arabs continue with their terrorist activities.
23. # 18 Schmuel, Brazil
Amused me!   (07.15.12)
to answer your question............ some Israeli idiot, of course!
24. I agree with #1
Moragh   (07.15.12)
Put an end to their misery!
