1. Hypocrites
Leon ,   melbourne, australia   (11.04.12)
" promising they will restart negotiations without pre-conditions if their bid is accepted " - isn't that a pre-condition?
2. Useless to fight against this
Kobi Matin ,   Tel Aviv   (11.04.12)
1. Palestine will be created, like it or not. Here, besides us. 2.Retaliaton from Lieberman or Bibi will last for a while (2, 3 months) and then the hard scenario is that Palestinian will have access to the International Court of Justice permanently. 3.If we want to be a pariah State, like Iran or Somalia, it is ok. We can ignore the Court. 4. Israel should be the first to push for a Palestinian State that better fits us. 5. We will pay a heavy price for not making peace now with Abbas.
3. Bring PLO/Palestine to the ICJ
Susya Bar Dror ,   Israel   (11.04.12)
Because palestinians, lead by Arafat, Abbas and others carried out terror crimes against israeli and other civilians and civilians. They still support terror against Israel and jews.
4. Abbas, and the PLO that he leads, want territory but
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (11.04.12)
without accepting Israel's right to exist as the sovereign nation-state of the Jewish people, on ANY parcel of land of the Jewish people's ancestral homeland; and, without accept any peace treaty as the end of the conflict and the end of any future demands. It is high time, very, very high time Europe, America, Japan, Australia and others woke up from the dreams and wishful thinking that have possessed them and said to Mr. Abbas, now: Return to the negotiating table and talk peace, without preconditions or else...!!
5. let a fool do what he want and he will see what comes out
Gerry   (11.04.12)
6. To: No. 2
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.04.12)
If you're that afraid of a handful of terrorists that should have been destroyed long ago then you, sir, are no Israeli. Israel will annex Judea and Samaria and repatriate all the illegal Arab squatters there to Jordan, country of their citizenship. It is the very ICJ that has consistently rebuffed Jordan's efforts to rescind the 1954 Citizenship Law which conferred Jordanian citizenship upon all West Bank Arabs and their progeny irrevocably. That works in Israel's favor. What did you do in the IDF, Kibbah? You're such a little terrified mouse, I would find it hard to believe that you even served!
7. how much will US, EU pay for that?
observer ,   Egypt   (11.04.12)
8. #2 It is weaklings like you...
Eli ,   Jerusalem   (11.04.12)
who destroy all that we have built. Take your Galut mentality and your weakness and stick it where the sun don't shine. The heavy price we are paying is from your ilk who believe we must give up our land to irredentist terrorists who want to murder us. Did you shirk the army too? What a fool.
Israeli ,   Haifa   (11.04.12)
That way Bibi and Lieberman are strengthened in their position and we can shut down this sickening control freak manipulation by our *COUGH* ally and the useless and hypocritical UN.
10. According to the Mayan calendar the world will end in 2012
Borislava ,   Sofia, Bulgaria   (11.04.12)
If you want to survive go to "Palestine", they are 100 years back
11. #2
Anshel ,   Canada   (11.04.12)
you arr wrong, wrong! Abbas will certainly loose funding from USA, even EU funding might be questionable in the future, Abbas and his cohorts traveling privileges most likely will be revoked by Israel (just remember what happened to Arafat, he was holed in Ramallah), Israel may not collect duty and taxes on their behalf, since Oslo will be dead. The sad part is that everybody forgets when Israel withdrew fro Gaza. The same thing will happen in Ramallah, Hamas will take control of the government and the territory without any resistance. Before you know you will have rockets aimed at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. This is what you wish #2? There is saying #2; ONE BITTEN, TWICE SHY. You and the 89 year old president are so shortsighted that it hurts.
12. The UN partition was a truly ME solution
Karole du Pont ,   Quebec   (11.04.12)
Arabs and Israelis must come to the conclusion that the UN imposed a ME solution to a permanent problem that was solved incompletely at the time of the expulsion of Jews from Spain since Jews were granted asylum under the Ottoman Empire and left in legal constitutional protectivel vacuum in the ME at the time of WWII because precisely they had no confirmed autonomous region except historical rights especially in Iraq and a certain right of return to Jerusalem.
13. R U my Aussie cousin?
Goldenberg   (11.04.12)
If so, let me know.
14. Lieberman need to promote his peace plan
Alex   (11.04.12)
It's one of the most reasonable, Jewish areas (settlements) to Israel in exchange for Israeli-Arab areas to the palestinians. Simple solution to the conflict.
15. good old norway the quisling state.
ralph   (11.04.12)
16. and the big winners will be?
tiki ,   belgium   (11.04.12)
The hotels in De Hague! Because of obvious 'permanent complaints by the so suffering Palestinians they will be fully booked for the next 200 years! The ICJ can aswell prepare itself to work overtime over the never ending 'injustice, done to the poor Palestinians by those terrible Israeli's. There won't of course be any time left for other problems/injustices in the world, which is good news for the 'real villains like for instance, the Palestinian leaders, who still didn't grab the idea that the bread can be cut from both sides and they may find themselves finally sitting in the accused bench.
17. Only through honesty we get to peace
Norbus ,   Jerusalem   (11.04.12)
Simple ; Jews inhabited Land of their National Home on and off , mostly on for over 3300 years. Islam conquerd the land most recently 1400 years ago, with last 500 years under Ottoman Dominion. Balfour, & subsequently International law recognised the Jews homeland, at least till the Jordan River to the East plus what is now Jordan WE reconquered what was always ours in 1967, End of the story. We've just as much right to it by conquest as be inheritance.
18. Abbas almost seemed reasonable in the Channel 2 interview
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (11.04.12)
But if he was really serious, he'd be coming to the table, and not running to the UN.
19. UN/Arab League: nonviolent Arab TRANSFER = NEW LIFE&BALANCE.
Jerry ,   The Netherlands   (11.04.12)
20. #4 Poor Sarah!
Ken   (11.04.12)
"Israel will annex Judea and Samaria and repatriate all the illegal Arab squatters there to Jordan" Yawn... You have been making this claim for YEARS lol...
21. Go for membership, US & israel not trustworthy
American Vet   (11.04.12)
22. Seriously: what is israel's peace plan?
23. To: No. 20
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.05.12)
Don't worry about me. Worry about your terrorist buds in Judea and Samaria. Israel will annex Judea and Samaria -- that is inevitable. When that happens, the illegal Arab squatters who have been living off Israeli largesse for FAR too long will be repatriated to Jordan, country of their citizenship. I do not have a crystal ball and I cannot tell you what date it will happen. But I can tell you that it WILL happen, and the ersatz "Palestinian" approach to the United Nations will only hasten the date.
24. #23 Bet your life on it
Wendall ,   Ohio, U.S.   (11.07.12)
Sarah B. how bout betting your life on this.
25. To: No. 24
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.07.12)
Bet my life on the fact that the United States cannot force Israel to do anything that Israel does not want to do? Sure. Any day of the week. Israel and its formidable nuclear arsenal will NOT take orders from the Moslem lackey in the White House. Are you prepared to bet your life on pushing Israel one click too far?
26. #24. She HAS no life!
Nour ,   1 State   (11.08.12)
