3. This time definitely I will do a really strong response
Ehud Barak   (11.11.12)
Now they've really made me mad - I'm going to bomb and re-bomb those empty tunnels and empty tin shacks until it's over. Then I'll retire to my elitist home and enjoy my wealthy circumtances until next time. It's working well for me.
4. Gaza Escalation
Steve ,   USA   (11.11.12)
Israel killed since Saturday evening SEVEN Palestinians, including two brothers under the age of 18, and injured more than 35 Palestinians. Israel is a war criminal, resistance is justified when people are occupied FULL STOP
5. Resumption of Cast Lead anyone?
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.11.12)
6. Where is EU Catherine Ashton??
Cynthia ,   USA   (11.11.12)
Waiting for her condemnation of Palestinians. Does she not regret Palestinians are terrorizing Israeli civilians sending clear message Palestinians have no interest in two-state solution. This is far more serious than Israel building a housing project.

Linichka ,   Gdynia, Poland   (11.11.12)
Why, yes, Steve. This, in response to terrorist attacks on our soldiers and dozens of rockets launched at Israeli civilians. Furthermore, you are behind the times: Gaza is NOT "occupied", nor has it been for seven years. But then, those of you enamoured of the moronic Palestinian "cause" never let facts get in the way of your mindless rants.

Steve Gaza Escalation You Staeve live in USA you need to move to Sderot for a few weeks and then we seat down and talk ....Where you get you news Hamas in Gaza ..Good night and sweet dreams you need to get you facts strait !!! ,,,Our life and our people !!!
9. Well said #4
Gregg ,   Haifa IL   (11.11.12)
10. #4 What were these 7 Palestinians doing?
Ron ,   US   (11.11.12)
Planting bombs, crossing illegally into Israel, firing kassam rockets? Palestinians use minors to carry out terror attacks. Over 50 kassam rockets fired into Israel in the past week. Tell only part of story and discredit yourself.
11. Message to PM: If you sit on your backside
DT ,   TA Israel   (11.11.12)
, do nothing and talk big displaying only weakness you do not deserve to be re-elcted and especially with a half wit as Minister of Defense.
12. Where is Catherine Ashton ? Looking for

a fella perhaps
13. "The Chosen People"
Sagi   (11.11.12)
If we were chosen to be slaughtered then the name fits. If we were chosen as the stupidest nation on earth then the name also fits.

15. Rocket barrage hits Israel's south
mat ,   uk   (11.11.12)
hamas sees that the media and world dont say much about the rockets sent to israel they think that they have a licence to do it when the media reports this they start by writing first israel fired at palistinians and killed a boy or something like that and then they might say about that rockets were fired from gaza
16. #4
Israel Winicki ,   Beer Sheba-Israel   (11.11.12)
Hey guy! I live en Beer Sheba, and those "poor victims" launch rockets every day. They are murders. I´m a civilian, and my wife, my doughter, my son in law and my grandchildren are civilians too. If Israel kills terrorists in Gaza I´m happy, because I feel that my government is protecting us. I hope that there be another "Cast Lead",
17. Dumb is as dumb does
Norbus ,   Jerusalem   (11.11.12)
These poor Palestinians have been used by Arab despotic rulers since 1948. Dictators found it convenient to have an effective instrument to use to distract nations they abused. Instead of recognising 900000 Jews from Arab countries, who were both dispossessed of their riches and nationalities then expelled and absorbing the lower number of poorer Palestinians,who were induced to run from their homes by Arabs, Arab leaders kept up the tentions to suit refusing equitable solutions. Sadly , we find the situation today with little or no prospect of a solution as Islamist causes have taken hold in the meantime and are too well in touch with Khaibar , the first Islamic ethnic cleansing of jews noted in the Kuran, Since it is highly unlikely for the Kuran to be interpreted in a benign fashion, Jews survival in the ME demands Israel holds strong and prepared
18. stay calm
thomas ,   USA   (11.11.12)
let us wait a little more and then we can transport them to Arish as a first station and if hate propaganda in Egypt continue then we send them behind Sinai to Egypt as a second station and if savagery continues we hit sed-al-ali and so on... until they understand the problem is the Quran if they can but they must because it would be a bad ending
19. And the UN, cynically, is going to grant these people a...
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (11.11.12)
..."state", despite the major violations of international law, including the UN's own Charter. This how low the UN cynicism has sunk... It is time for a change!!
20. left-wing American Jews, settlements, Sderot
Jeff ,   USA   (11.11.12)
Earlier today on a talkback for an article about Obama, someone claimed that "American Jews rejected Israel by voting for Obama" to which my response was this: "American Jews will never reject Israel... as of now we're rejecting Netanyahu, Lieberman, and the settlers that along with Palestinian terrorism and intransigence we believe are totally screwing up any chance for Israel to ever be able to live in peace. Unless I'm mistaken, roughly half of Israel that's anywhere to the left of Likud agrees with us, but I guess we're all just 'self-hating Jews,' right?" To which someone responded: "I am one of those Jews whom you declare to reject. Let me in turn reject your rejection and tell you that there is a mitzvah that says: Don't stay idle in front of your brother's blood, which is exactly what you are doing. The Jews you reject stay on G-d's Land for you too and deserve your support, if you are a Jew. The American community's turning its back to its brothers, is a very serious shortfall of Torah observance and I can't guarantee that Hashem will not punish Klal Israel terribly for this.." To which my response in light of Sderot being under attack again is-- Feel free to blow Hamas to hell. American Jews will assure that your right to do it is not disputed and that Obama doesn't give you trouble for it. The mitzvah of "don't stay idle in front of your brother's blood" is something that even the most "left-wing" of us take very seriously and I am offended that you would question our commitment to it... just don't conflate it with obligatory political support for settlements.
Catherine Ashton could care less about poor israeli victims of rocket fire in the south .Miss Ashton ingested antisemitism with her mothers' milk . But an israeli builds a house and we witness her spewing bile and her fury.
22. #2 Shalom Chanoch
Shalom Chanoch explained the reason: Hatzibur metumtam, hatzibut yeshalem. Enough Israelis voted Shas, Labor, Kadima and Meretz to import terrorists to Israel, give them weapons and legitimacy and tie the IDFs hand while attacking Zionists.
When all this rocket fire was going on ,Catherine the not-so -great Ashton was consulting with a Plastic Surgeon who informed her that he was a surgeon ,not a miracle worker.
24. #4 war crimes
I agree with you that IDF resistance to Hamas occupation of Gaza is justified and legal. I also agree that Hamas should be in trial for using those two brothers as human shields, a war crime. But coming from a supporter of the Obama regime, that is strange. FYI Killing civilians with drones is a war crime. Destroying a sovereign country like Libya under the guise of a no-fly zone is a war crime. Covert operations to supply weapons to a country under an international weapons embargo (What Stevens was doing in Benghazi) is a war crime.
25. Why don't you move Gazans to Egypt?
Livia ,   Romania   (11.11.12)
What will happen when they become 5 millions?
JEW ,   ISRAEL   (11.11.12)
27. Two-State Solution Nightmare
Reuven Brauner ,   Raanana, Israel   (11.11.12)
What we are seeing in our South is a good forecast as to what life will be for the entire nation if the local Arabs are granted a state right here in the kishkes of the country. Rockets, hostility, retaliations. We will be under siege all the time. Who needs that? A "second" Arab state here is suicidal for the fine Jews of Eretz Yisroel, and this idiotic idea must be squelched immediately, once and for all.
28. And what is our government doing?
Jew1 ,   Ashdod   (11.11.12)
Bomb some empty tunnels and buildings. Make a show that they care about citizens from South and try to achieve some temporary foolish quite via Egypt. Enough is enough. We demand action.
29. Governmental Futility!!!
Taz Man ,   USA   (11.11.12)
Once again, the Israeli government plays more, tit-for-tat, games while the people, of the South, suffer. Like here in America: pathetic, cowardly leadership talks and does nothing for its people! The longer the IDF waits, the more difficult their eventual task will be; procrastination does nothing but make an untenable situation worse, while the political morass becomes that much more fraught with uncertainty, and without any clear vision as to its true purpose and goal: killing the Muslim enemy...before, it kills Israel. Israel fights (justifiably so) atop the moral highground; they have a righteous cause in defending itself by any means necessary! Every inch of Israeli land, rightfully, belongs to them--period! God bless, Israel and his Jerusalem!!! A Christian Zionist
David ,   New York, NY   (11.11.12)
The Bibi-Barak "stragegy" (?) of "your turn /my turn" in the South is a betrayal of theSouthern communities and the goverment's sworn responsibilities to protect ALL the citizens of Israe. Far from limiting damage this will sooner or later lead to more devastating attacks on the more highly populated areas of Israel. This is because the Bobsey twins have lost all credibility with their pathetic, empty, and reptitive threats and with it Israel's historical DETERRENCE which has always been a cornerstone of its' ability to defend itself. So, sadly, the the citizerns of Israel will be paying a very high price for their so-called leaders gigantic failures of nerve.
