1. "We have all failed"
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (08.22.12)
Maybe you are right Shimi, maybe you are right. I expect you to lead by example. After such a terrible failure you should resign immediately.
2. Correct assertion; vague answer.
Keren ,   IL-BR   (08.22.12)
ASSERTION: "The teachers need to stimulate students' imagination and curiosity and give them freedom to act. " ANSWER: "We fell in love with this country so deeply, but we mustn't forget that being civilized is no less important than living according to the Torah. We must make the utmost effort to invest in education, so that we can make the world a better place" Now ,Israel must sew assertion with answer by teaching teachers Torah´s ways so they can teach their children to be generous,imaginative,curious,creative and therefore FREE.
3. Not a lynch
Ron P ,   Efrat, Israel   (08.22.12)
Please stop using the word "lynch" to dramatize the case. It was a riot, or a gang attack, or whatever. However a "lynch" is a hanging, which this was not.
4. this from a man who thinks that...
Golan ,   modiin   (08.22.12)
human lives is less important than giving up that "holy land"
DAVID ,   JUDEA   (08.22.12)
Are there really people who care what our president has to say. For years all I hear is a sound off flapping gums without any content.
6. "J'lem lynch"
Ariel Ben Yochanan ,   Kfar Tapuah, Efraim   (08.22.12)
B"H - "J'lem lynch" is not a lynch. Victim has a heart condition and likely suffered a heartattack. Velmer, stop using emotionally invocative terminology for your political purposes.
7. The real lynch was
in 2000 in Ramallah where 2 Israelis –who lost their way– were brutally lynched by Arab Palestinian masses and its police in public square, the sheer animalism of mutilating and “playing” with their body parts while screaming in inhuman ways, revealed the real face of mainstream Arab-Muslim Palestine. They were describe by a British journalist eyewitness: “they were like animals.” The Italian crew who filmed the crime was threatened by Arafat‘s people. Was the Jersualem Arab lynched? ABSOLUTELY NOT! They use the harshes terminology because it never happens that Arabs get beaten up.
8. here we go again....
yafe nefesh ,   nahariya   (08.22.12)
once again the extremist right wing haters line up to spew their poison... Good on you Shimon for standing up for decency.
9. youth
jojo   (08.22.12)
Another shining example of secular israeli youth - well done charles - keep it up
10. Every thing in Israel is a big deal
David ,   On this planet   (08.22.12)
6 million Jews were slaughter, one million Jews were beat up daily in Arab countries, just for being Jewish I was beat up every day coming home from school no body shed a tear for me. What is the big deal? a group of kids had a fight the majority won. Get over it, enough is enough, we are no better than anybody else
11. I like the presentation
Keren ,   IL-BR   (08.22.12)
But it is missing a version in Hebrew. It would be very beautiful ,I think.
12. Will This Guy Just Shut Up
Joe Sombrero ,   USA   (08.22.12)
Where was his voice when Jews were attacked killed lynched kicked out of homes?
13. the most moral army in the world...
Miron ,   USA   (08.22.12)
14. ''It's true that the land is Holy''
roger ,   zurich switzerland   (08.22.12)
The view that the land and the state of Israel is inherently holy or sacred is idolatrous. Holiness can not be imputed to soil. It is a quality of being and certainly not that evident in Israel.
15. Peres the Mighty
Meced Dave ,   Merced, USA   (08.22.12)
All Israelis are responsible for what Peres says and Peres is a vacuous windbag who habitually makes pompous proclamations to show what a great human being he is to us lesser mortals who don't raise our kids right. Israel, please upgrade your education system by dumping Peres as President.
16. education
Iletzter ,   TA- Israel   (08.22.12)
Interesting Rabbi Ovadia said the same thing. Rabbi Yosef: Secular education corrupts kids
17. #14 Roger - Of course Israel is the Holy Land
Rachel ,   US   (08.22.12)
You're just jealous
18. When Jews are killed, wounded or beaten,
jason white ,   afula, israel   (08.22.12)
peres hardly says a word. We raised generations of children that watched unelected old men become our presidents. Our children are watching a president that has a ghetto mentality and will do whatever he can to please the non Jewish world. Let the arabs fear to enter our cities and towns. We do not enter theirs. Finally abolish the office of the president and make sure old politicians and generals keep their mouths shut!
19. #13 Most Moral Army is SYRIAN
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (08.22.12)
They have already killed more than 20,000 of their own people & still counting
