Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.16.12)
Just the thing for their ragged tents, running power cords to the nearest outlet .... quite the eyesore, really, those tents with power cords and satellite dishes.
2. Religion teaches 10 Commandments.Secularism does not .
Roland Seener ,   London England   (11.16.12)
3. Terrible... Lack of Moral Values
Michael David ,   UP, India   (11.16.12)
This is so terrible. Committing a theft is wrong; committing a theft at a time like this is even more terribly wrong. Moral decline of human values. May God judge them.
4. Lowest of The Low
emanon ,   USA   (11.16.12)
Stealing, under any circumstances, is not a good thing. To use these circumstances as cover to steal shows sinking to a new depth. Whoever committed these crimes should be prosecuted to the fullest, maybe even charged with a newer, more serious, crime.
5. it was probably arabs
Scott ,   Ramat Gan, Israel   (11.16.12)
I used to live in Beer Sheva. A LOT of Beduins live there and in villages nearby & come to Beer Sheva for work. It's not uncommon to see women on the street wearing burqas or veils. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it was Arabs, but there are also a lot of Jews living in poverty there.
6. Israeli society imploding ?
Abdel Karim Salim ,   Jerusalem   (11.16.12)
Jews don't prey on Jews ?
7. looting and morals
gene ,   ny.usa   (11.16.12)
tell it to the black population of new york and new jersey. they were looting like no tomorow when sandy hit.
8. Count On Sarah To Cast Jews In Worst Light
World Citizen ,   the world   (11.16.12)
Day in and day out you can bet that she is going to spout some racist diatribe about the Arabs or the Gentiles. This time it's the Bedouins. Anyone could have stolen those televisions. Any rational person could tell you that. I'll leave it at that and you be the judge.
9. #5 Scott: and you're PROBABLY a racist

11. Low Life Scum
Koose E Mack ,   NY NY   (11.16.12)
This type of human refuse exists everywhere.......I can understand and forgive an impoverished family for stealing food..but TV's? That is really low low low
12. zionists robbing zionists so typical LOL

thats just hilarious, they dont even trust each other and they want the world to trust them hehehehhe bunch of losers....
13. To: No. 8
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.16.12)
And "anyone" could have slaughtered five sleeping members of the Fogel family, too, I suppose. "Anyone" could have stabbed Abraham Tau, too, I suppose. "Anyone" could have herded Jews into gas chambers, too. "Anyone" could have massacred Jews in pogroms. "Anyone" could have ransacked the homes and businesses and property of Jews who were unceremoniously expelled from their homes in Arab and Moslem lands. "Anyone" could have fired tens of thousands of missiles targeting civilian populations in Israel. Does it offend you when I simply state the truth? Too bad. Perhaps you are not as worldly as you think. In fact, your posts seem to suggest that you're pretty shallow-minded. You've never been to Israel in your life, and all you know is what you read on Arab propaganda websites. So shut up.
14. To: No. 9
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.16.12)
You should check the statistics on crime in Be'ersheva -- and who is responsible for the overwhelming majority of it -- before you accuse anyone of racism. Or is simply stating the facts "racism" because the truth offends your "sensibilities?"
15. Very few nazi laws
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (11.16.12)
were correct, but one of them was justified. Looting during air raids had to be punished with death.
16. As if hurricane Sandy victims
Isac   (11.16.12)
weren't robbed after they lost their homes and belongings. Finally, to laugh about the misery of other people really is about at the same level as the thieves who robbed the Beersheva store. Look in the mirror and watch yourself.
17. Reply to James, #12
elizabethlynne ,   Dallas, Texas!   (11.16.12)
James, your comment is so offensive. Do your own research about the Zionist movement and the history of Israel, and stop making incorrect and offensive statements. I don't like the comments about the thieves being Bedouins or Arabs either. They were thieves and that is all that we know.
18. Reply to #15
elizabethlynne ,   Dallas, Texas!   (11.16.12)
Killing anyone over theft is too extreme. There is no death penalty in Israel.
19. #8 World - There is more to the World
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (11.16.12)
than Isralel, worry about the other countries You're more of a racist than anyone on these boards, you have yet to say a good word about Jews or Israel To put it bluntly, you're a Fake, Phony & Fraud You're like the UN, who would have had to issue your non-existent "World Passport" totally useless I am the judge, you're a friggin anti-semite
20. #12 James, you forgot about the
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (11.16.12)
the L.A. riots where everyone got robbed P.S. Nobody said is was Zionist doing the robberries, did they? It could have very well have been cowards like you, who hide in the dark or behind masks, like Hamas does Hehehe - You're an idiot!!!
21. sara #13
sealift67 ,   northern calif   (11.16.12)
while your facts are correct regarding history of persecution and genocide, from a juris prudence standpoint these would be objected to, correctly, for having no material connection to looting in Beersheba. I understand your pain, but your emotions cloud your judgment and negate your reasoning. We simply do not know who did the looting. #11 states there are immoral people everywhere and this is beyond dispute. The bedouins are no more fairly subject to blood libel type claims as we..all racism is to be condemned.
22. sara #14
sealift67 ,   northern calif   (11.16.12)
yes good deal of arab crime in Beersheba, yet plenty of our people too. you must not be aware of arrests and investigations of major yisraeli organized crime in this locale.
23. As I Said #13 You Paint The Jewish People ....
World Citizen ,   the world   (11.16.12)
In A Very Bad Light If every Israeli or Israeli-wannabe is as big of a racist bigot as you then there is no hope for Israel. And as for me shutting up ... not in your lifetime.
24. #2 Please explain Shas MKs in Jail
Haim ,   TA   (11.16.12)
Guess they must have skipped that particular lesson. Dont be so nieve, the prisons have wings full of religious prisoners, just take Shas for example, 7 Shas MKs jailed for charges of corruption, theft, and misuse of public funds, How sad people like you need a little guide book to tell right from wrong.
25. # Nr 8 and nr 23 Truth is "racism"?
World Citizen Too ,   PRO ISRAEL WORLD   (11.16.12)
So when Sarah B speaks the truth than she is a racist? Is it racist to point out that most crimes in Israel are committed by Arabs? Should Sarah B avoid saying that in order to avoid hurt your tender sensibilities? Spaniards killed Jews during the Inquisition. Germans have killed 6 million Jews. Arabs have massacred thousands of Jews for 1400 years. Is it racist to point out these things? If Sarah B would have suspected that Jews/Israeli committed those crimes -would you have said anything? Probably not. And you won't shut up? Do you mean you are going to spread lies all the time? Israelis and Israeli-wannabe? What's an "Israeli wannabe"? Either you are Israeli/Jewish by birth or you are not, in the same way as you are for example Irish by birth or not. Your definition of "normal" Israelis would be Israelis that agree to be exterminated and annihilated from the face of the earth - alternatively turning Israel into a bi-national state without a Jewish identity while you accept, and take for granted, without any moral, ideological or emotional explanations, the existence of dozens of ethnic nation states (states whose identity/nationality is based on ethnicity) across Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The biggest racist is you "World Citizen". For your information, most Americans, Canadians, Indians and Chinese are pro-Israeli - and they are world citizens too.
26. Hey Ynet
Joshua ,   Jerusalem   (11.16.12)
I don't think there's a need to make a headline over one incident of looting, regardless of who did it. To even say that 'there has been looting' in a case like this strikes me as purely negative sensationalism.
27. # 18
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (11.16.12)
It's not to extreme and there should be a death penalty for certain crimes.
28. Businesses need to put Armorguard plastic glue paper on the
Rivkah   (11.17.12)
inside of all windows. Homeowners should do the same thing to prevent looters from breaking in. Then on the inside of the windows whould be rolling metal shutters that are down and locked when people go to shelters.
29. To: No. 23
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.17.12)
Babble on, then, mindless idiot.
30. To: No. 21
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.17.12)
But it is fairly well known that Bedouins run a thriving criminal enterprise in stolen electronics, smuggling them into Gaza and into Sinai. In times of national strife, the Jewish people come together. I do not believe that the looters were Jewish, and I resent anyone who implies as much.
