1. What else can be said but... JEW HATER!!!
2. JStreet opposes Levy Report
Well, then there is at least one good reason to support the Levy Report.
3. Levy report
Ali ,   Scotland   (11.01.12)
Is everyone sure it was Edmund Levy who made the report and not Edmund Blackadder
4. When J Street is part of the problem
Ilan   (11.01.12)
J Street spends most of it's time working against the interests of Israel. How could it possibly be part of the solution. The core of the Levy report is that the government is not acting properly or within the law when it puts up extra obstacles to Israelis living in Judea and Samaria. It doesn't claim to give anyone extra rights, rather it demand that we stop treating good people as grade C citizens. Ben Ami is anything but.
5. objectiveness of JStreet not questionable
Larry ,   Los Angeles   (11.01.12)
I think by now all know of JStreets agenda of deligitimizing Israel's claims of land. I frankly find their lack of objectiveness and inability to understand both sides both amusing and tragic. Worse, some young reader may even accept them as a legitimate opinion of Jews and not that as an Arab front.
6. J Street is a bunch of TRAITORS !!!!!!!!!!
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (11.01.12)
7. If J Street is against it, IT MUST be GOOD
Ellen ,   Israel/NYC   (11.01.12)
8. Jews accept Palestinian+Jewish states. Pals don't.
Sam ,   Canada   (11.01.12)
These Jewish wimps are so afraid of offending the non-Jews that they limit their time to criticizing just Jews and give Palestinians a free ride. Israel accepts that peace leads to Jewish and Palestinian states. The Palestinians reject a Jewish state. J-Street and the like should spend more time explaining to the non-Jews that it is the PALESTINIANS who reject a genuine 2 state solution.
9. It's an opinion piece. We believe in the right to your own
rebecca ,   modiin   (11.01.12)
opinion. Even if it is twisted.
10. Ben Ami and j street is bad for Israel
Mel ,   Chicago   (11.01.12)
They cant be more than a bunch of traitors. Romney and Bibi will show you the way to the gutter.
11. J Street won't be satisfied until Israel ceases to exist
Kapo Street ,   Los Angeles, CA   (11.01.12)
12. Anyone who takes Jihad Street seriously is a fool
BH ,   Iowa   (11.01.12)
13. Adopt Levy NOW! J Street are enemies of Israel.
Chaim ,   Israel   (11.01.12)
14. The real adversaries of Jews and Israel are not
Roger ,   USA   (11.01.12)
Arabs but Jews like Jeremy Ben-Ami.
15. With Jeremy Ben-Ami there would be no Israel
Dan ,   USA   (11.01.12)
16. No "jewish democracy" 20% of the poputlation
JIm   (11.01.12)
can by land, are resitricted in using the "justice" system, percecuted because of religion and force to suport a state-relegion.
17. Jeremy Ben-Ami nonsense
DavidM ,   USA   (11.01.12)
Why is Jeremy Ben-Ami using the word "us" when he speaks about Israel? He lives in the comfort of Washington, DC, thousands of miles from the rockets fired at Israel. His children do not sleep in bomb shelters. If Mr. Ben-Ami wants to help Israel he can stop criticizing its elected government from afar or move to Israel and join the IDF.
18. It is very unfortunate that we have enemies
Frank-beware of J-st ,   USA   (11.01.12)
like Jeremy Ben-Ami who are working diligently to destroy the only Jewish sovereignty.
19. every one is against JStreet
ma nishma ,   modiin   (11.01.12)
interesting to note in the feedback that every single feedback looks as JStreet as on the side of the Arabs. Poor JStreet, they can fool anyone!!
FO ,   Belgium   (11.01.12)
Who are you trying to fool Mr. Ben-Ami, the public in general or even yourself, because of flagrant ignorance ? Do you belong to those, who because of panic or an inferiority complex try by all means to sweep Jewish-Israeli rights conform to International Law, under the rug ? It is not my intention to give you a lecture, but I will just concentrate on one point of your article. You wrote: "In order to shore international support for Israel .... the country must maneuver within the internationally recognized framework - the 1967 lines, UN Resolution 242 and land swaps". Well Mr. Ben-Ami, the 1967 lines were never considered as a border, but are the green (drawn by a green pencil) line of the cease-fire of 1949 ! But now the most important ! You seem, and you are unfortunately not alone, to have no idea what Resolution 242 is about ! It was the team work of Lord Caradon and Prof. Eugene Rostow, expert in International Law, being dean of the School of Law in Yale. Prof. Rostow made a comprehensive study about the subject, and came to a conclusion that he had to explain to the members of the Security Council of the UN. As author of the Resolution, he stated, that in case of a settlement between Israel and its neighbours, Israel will have to withdraw FROM territories and not FROM THE territories. Not because of mere love for the Jewish State, but because of International Law. He explained that after a withdrawal of the Sinai Desert (representing more than 90% of territory in Israeli hands), Israel could not be required to withdraw from the remaining areas, because this country had a legal owners right. An irrevocable right dating from the unanimous vote of the League of Nations (Mandate for Palestine, 1922), guaranteed by the Anglo American Treaty (1924) and reaffirmed by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter ! And all this, Mr. Ben-Ami, remains valid to this very day. And if you have any doubts about my writing, sit down in front of your computer, and find out. Everything is available on Internet. Even Rostow's articles explaining his Resolution 242.
21. who is the enemy? with friends like this who needs enemies
Rogerstan   (11.01.12)
22. #20
Michael ,   Haifa   (11.01.12)
Your colossal ignorance is amazing, especially from somebody who I assume is a French speaker. The English version of Resolution 242 states "The" territories...the French translation uses the indefinite article "Des". Clearly Israel ,and you opt for the French translation rather than the original English written document since it favors land theft
23. Statistics
Uzziel   (11.01.12)
This opinion piece is directed to persuade jews to commit suicide on behalf of their arab adversaries by paid jewish traitors: J(ihad) Street. After the coward arabs came to the conclusion that they can´t beat Israel in the battleground. Does these efforts pay off? In a leftist paper like Ynet 19 out of the first 20 talkbacks don´t buy your kapo propaganda Jeremy Ben Ami. Tough luck. In your place I would fear HaShem very much. Traitor.
24. Ben Ami is a loser who couldn't make it in Israel
Moshe ,   Rehovot   (11.01.12)
he tried aliya and failed so he went back to the USA to work for the Saudis (Felton communication) and now he is a 'professional Jew.' He never succeeded at any real job.
25. JStreet is an Arab/Iranian front group
steve from raleigh   (11.01.12)
Financed and directed by Arab and Iranian interests in the US. It's 'pro Israel' like some in the 3rd Reich only wanted to send all the Jews to Uganda instead of killing them all.
26. Anti J St desperation obvious
Ed ,   USA   (11.01.12)
The vitrolic comments here against J Street tell it all. You realize that the Pro Israel and Pro Peace movement in the American Jewish community is strong and will prevail. J Street is now one of the largest PACs in the USA, and is making inroads into mainstream institutions. Only desperate people would post such hate filled comments as I've been reading so far.
27. J Street is Centrist
Ed ,   USA   (11.01.12)
It's also funny to read the comments re J Street here, as all J Street is doing is endorsing the policies of Ariel Sharon, the last strong and effective PM Israel has had. He understood that to save Israel as a Jewish democracy the Arabs have to have their own land and government.
28. Courageous to speak out
MelekhShaul ,   Jerusalem   (11.01.12)
When so many are happy in their paranoia and blind to the lack of accountability for the actions of their government. Those who reject this, who hurl abuse at it, who twist and turn the logic of it, are culpable of the three monkeys syndrome - hearing, seeing and speaking no evil. They are wilfully taking us into the abyss.
29. If anyone is wondering
Paul ,   Jerusalem   (11.01.12)
what the Modern day Jewish Jew-hater sounds like, listen to the vomit that comes out of the mouths of J-Street.
30. To No. 20
Bertram ,   London, UK   (11.01.12)
Good to read the same old sophistry being trotted out once again with regards to 'from territories' and 'from the territories'. Look, there is no dispute regarding the Mandate and UN obligations to the Jewish people. However, the League of Nations Mandate clearly states this: 'The Administration of Palestine, while ensuring that the rights and position of other sections of the population are not prejudiced, shall facilitate Jewish immigration under suitable conditions and shall encourage, in co-operation with the Jewish agency referred to in Article 4, close settlement by Jews on the land, including State lands and waste lands not required for public purposes.' Secondly, the UN General Assembly Resolution 181 (Partition Plan) 1947 also clearly divides the area west of the Jordan into Jewish and Arab states with Jerusalem administered separately. Does the fact that this was rejected by the Arabs does not nullify the intention of the plan?
