1. nationalistically motivated?
roger ,   zurich switzerland   (08.16.12)
That means religious-nationalists. Which means hypocrites. Why? Because they worship the Torah as God's word, and it says 'love thy neighbour as thyself'. But of course, their rabbis tell them that 'neighbour' means Jews only. If Israel doesn't confront the racism in rabbinical Judaism, it will have no future.
2. Shoe's on the other foot
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (08.16.12)
The ersatz "Palestinians" have no problem hurling boulders and molotov cocktails at Jewish-owned cars. It would be considerably hypocritical for them to protest when someone gives them a taste of their own medicine.
3.  carried out by Jews and was nationalistically-motivated
split ,   US   (08.16.12)
The same one that scream gevalt or antisemitism where the natives of countries they managed to establish themselves dare to take a wrong look at their weird lifestyle or God forbid attempt to change their barbaric customs like kosher slaughtering of animals or to postpone circumcision to a day the one that wishes to be circumcised can decide for himself instead of by his pinhead parents and maybe not too crazy for a first blovv job by a germ infested dirty mohel ,...
4. Terrorism, or Price Tag? Arab, or Jew?
Steven Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (08.16.12)
Life in prison? Slap on the wrist? Insufficient evidence? Unknown perpetrators? Administrative detention? Torture? No witnesses? The difference between Arabs and Jews in the Israeli legal system.
5. Attack was near G'vaot...there is a traffic backup
dov epstein ,   jerusalem, israel   (08.16.12)
Not near Bat Ayin, as it is far from there, but it is near Surif, the same place the Arabs came from to kill the famous Lamed Hay reinforcments, for Kfar Etzion in 1948. They obviously mistook their own.
6. vicious circle. violence begets more
Barney ,   USA   (08.16.12)
violence. it is a shame they can turn us into them
7. Acts of terror
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (08.16.12)
Throwing a firebomb at a family is an act of terrorism. These terrorist must be caught and imprisoned. We cannot maintain the moral high ground if we Jews engage in acts of terrorism. This is disgusting. An eye for an eye, will leave us all blind.
8. Where is the proof as to who did this???
Chaya ,   Bat Yam   (08.16.12)
Why are they jumping to conclusions just because it was a family of Arabs inside the taxi?
9. Inaccurate and Inciteful
Daniel from Bat Ayin ,   Bat Ayin. Israel   (08.16.12)
The event took place on the road between Nachlin and Kfar Etzion. Not Bat Ayin. Within hours, one police source speculates and hurls aspecious and unfounded charge that the attackers are Jewish and ynet reports this as near fact. Irresponsible journalism at its worst. Now the local Arabs have ' "justification" for revenge terror. Not they ever needed justification for their past murders of Jews - but now ynet tells them that "The Settlers have poisoned your wells" as a matter of record. And the authors probably considers themselves to be in the so-called Peace Camp!
10. Whoa! Incompetent police have blown it bigtime before.
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (08.16.12)
Remember the father and son murdered by Palestinians who lobbed a rock at them from a passing car? The police immediately said it was driver error. Only when they bothered checking to find that a big rock had gone through the windshield at 160 kph or more did they wake up and realize it was a case of Palestinians murdering Israelis. While Palestinians have thrown tens of thousands of molotov cocktails over the past 20 years and killed many Israelis, I don't recall a single case of the opposite happening. As a good reporter would say, let's call it as the facts show, and wait for the results of the investigation.
11. Your comments are vile and low
Dispicable ,   USA   (08.16.12)
Cannot believe you defend such a hate crime where people got hurt. You are disgusting vile and low life.
12. If it was a Pali
imagine opposite ,   USA   (08.16.12)
Probably they won't catch these aholes who did this, or care about catching them... if it was a palis. they would be going crazy to catch them.
13. number 3- take a chill pill will ya?
Barney ,   USA   (08.16.12)
you are going to do us all a favor and have a heart attack with all that pent up hateful emotion.
How does it feel when the tables are turned ?
15. from williamsburg...
yosef ,   williamsburg US   (08.17.12) the Satmar rebbe said the medinah will be "acting like goyim".
16. #3, #4 I feel sorry for the mother
A ,   Belgium   (08.17.12)
who gave birth to travesties such as yourselfs.
17. The Meshigeh # 2 is out again
Dov   (08.17.12)
who the hell keeps letting her out in public??
18. To: No. 1
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (08.17.12)
Doesn't it also say "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth?" Do you truly mean to suggest that it is perfectly acceptable for the ersatz "Palestinians" to murder innocent Jews driving in cars but that the Jewish people have no right to retaliate? If not, why not? Why don't you just take your Jew-hating and Israel-hating poison elsewhere? Heaven knows the Swiss have more than enough craven and criminal behavior to account for -- perhaps you ought to be refining your "turn the other cheek" defense. Because the Swiss are the most criminal of all with respect to the Second World War. The ersatz "Palestinians" have absolutely nothing upon which to argue a claim. How many innocent Jews have to die at the hand of criminal ersatz "Palestinian" terrorists before the ersatz "Palestinians" learn that payback can be a bitch? And you -- a Swiss -- don't have the right to enter a viewpoint. The Swiss are way too criminal to start acting pious now.
19. To: No. 3
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (08.17.12)
Split, you're just a diseased Polack who grew up in a shanty with wall to wall dirt floors and pigs living in the next room. You inherited your hatred of Jews in your mother's milk. Your ignorance is appalling and your heritage is laughable. Just shut up. Go visit your local priest who will tell you to worship a coal-dusted black madonna, will throw some water on you and absolve you of your incredible idiocy. I'd rather be dead than be Catholic.
20. To: No. 11
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (08.17.12)
You are illiterate and ignorant. Do you have any idea how many Jews have been injured and killed by molotov cocktails thrown at their cars by ersatz "Palestinians?" Any idea at all? No, it is quite obvious that you do not. You need to shut your vile and craven mouth.
21. Jews dont all walk around with halos on their heads
zionist forever   (08.17.12)
There are Jews capable of commiting acts of terror which this could probably be considered but the difference is the palestinians are masters of if and they honor terrorists whilst Jew do not. If it does turn out to be Jews and they are found they will find themselves in a jail cell. When a palestinian terrorist is cught he is arrested and locked up for image purposes but when the world is no longer interested in that terrorist they are let out of jail via the back door with a handshake.
22. To #2 Sarah B.
I Love Fanatics ,   Ohio, USA   (08.17.12)
Sarah B., Your quote “It would be considerably hypocritical for them to protest when someone give them a taste of their own medicine” Would you approve if someone retaliated and “gave them a taste of their own medicine” over the Fogel family? Randomly killing a family of 5? – Probably not. But if a Mother, Father and their 2 children (ages 4 & 5) are given sever burns (2nd &3rd degree burns require skin grafting and have profound scarring) - it’s appears that your position is that it’s OK - because “they got a taste of their own medicine”.
23. Why not call this attack as terrorism and use word terrorist
Simo ,   Helsinki, Finland   (08.17.12)
When Jews use equal terrorism methods in their terrorist acts they are not called in Israeli Jewish press terrorists. If this same would have been done by Pals in this article would have been mentioned at least ten times terrorist and terrorism. By the way where are numerous arsonists of Mosques and those attempting to murder African refugees with fire-bombs. Israeli police and army finds a 13 year old Palestinian boy who has thrown a stone with the certainty of 98 percent. But with Jewish terrorism the solution percent is two.
24. To: No. 22
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (08.17.12)
They're alive. That's more than can be said for the Fogel family, z"l. Or the Palmer father and infant son, z"l, killed when their car was struck by a boulder hurled by an ersatz "Palestinian" terrorist. That said -- you're a dupe. The culprit was in all likelihood an ersatz "Palestinian" terrorist dressed up and disguised as an ultra-Orthodox Jew. It's not as if we haven't seen ersatz "Palestinian" terrorists disguised as something they are not before. Par for the course for people who hide amongst civilians and set fires which endanger the lives of thousands. Of course you love them, though -- they're fanatics. Grist for your deplorable mill.
25. I don't know who did it but,
Big bad Jew   (08.17.12)
pal terrorism pay back's a bitch. ( I agree with some here, it may also have been staged to make it look as though the attack was by Jews, when it may not ) Those sneaky pals.. they lie more than a persian rung.
26. # 11 I can't believe you would
Big bad Jew ,   United States   (08.17.12)
defend people who've mass murdered Israeli Jews for years, the pals, may they rot in hell after we saw them dancing in the streets and passing out candy after they learned of nearly 3,000 American lives taken, including muslims and their children. Dispicable (?) or, despicable? No A in spelling? LOL Of course we rejoice in our enemy being struck needlessly as were we and our families. Expect more. Better the pals 'steal into the night" their goal of stealing Israel to make it 'palestine' has failed miserably. One can always ride an ass and avoid such easy, soft targets such as cabs.
27. # 3 Split woulda please??
Big bad Jew ,   United States   (08.17.12)
So, you prefer 'honor killings' to kosher slaughtering? Or perhaps another 'weird lifestyle to G-d' where female circumcision is okayed by entire muslim communities, sometimes accidentally killing the woman who bleeds to death? ( and, no blow job?) Rave on, the less of you the better for humanity. You're one sick puppy.
28. # 4 LOL Arab "legal' system..
Big bad Jew ,   United States   (08.17.12)
"fire away," on your own citizens, if possible. I ask you ladies and gentlemen, with a straight face, " how about that islamic 'legal system?? Shall we look to Iran for "Hang 'em high'? ( and sponsoring the deaths of countless muslims as well as anyone else they care to fire upon?) Or, say Syria where they fire on their own retirees, children and women and have mass murdered nearly 20,000 of their own civilians? Please name ONE arabic 'legal system' you care to submit for a debate............ we're waiting, any one of the "Arab spring' combatants?
29. # 22 To each his own......
Big bad Jew ,   United States   (08.17.12)
you take pride when Jews die, we don't. After years of pals terror, I guess we all get battle weary. Forgive us if we too take perverse pleasure in the awful payback you began.... War is hell. But, thanks to your side, Israel knows what to do, you don't. You can't unite even between yourselves.
30. Shame on all of us
Dan   (08.17.12)
This is directly attributable to the current Israeli government's giving Haredim and settlers the feeling that they own the country and can do no wrong. Above all it is the mark of Netanyahu's awful leadership. But speaking as a sabra, it is all our faults for tolerating this government even for one day. Shame on all of us.
