5. Israel garza
Michelle ,   Los Angeles USA   (11.17.12)
If turkey and Egypt love palestians so much how come they do not help them get rid of poverty and hunger. It is easy to rehearse brotherhood sentences. No Muslim from other countries help Gaian. Stop the rubbish talk.
6. "Two useless leaders"
marc joe ,   UK   (11.17.12)
morsi & erdogan are clueless. they will do nothing to hurt israel. they know they don't have israel supremacy of doing things. a very small country surrounded by big, massive arabs, muslims countries but all afraid to attack israel. because they have learnt from history. long live israel, your God is the true God. long live jerusalem! shalom!
7. Erdogan should have become a poet, I mean 'stand up comedian
tiki ,   belgium   (11.17.12)
The drama of his heartfelt words are touching. "Every drop of Palestinian blood is pouring from the veins of all Muslims & every tear dropping from their eyes is our tear to". What a joker, what a hypocrite!
8. Redo fan you are a coward
Jack ,   London   (11.17.12)
Thousands of Muslims are being butchered on your own doorstep by Assad and Iran, yet you do nothing Jews do something to defend themselves and it is a bloodbath. Are there any men left in Turkey, where is Ataturk and the other heroes who dragged your country into the twentieth century?
9. Obama is a joke
Natan ,   USA   (11.17.12)
Does he really think that discussing the situation with Erdogan will help?? Erdogan is one of the biggest Jew|Israeli haters around. As a Muslim he will always align himself with Muslims.
10. Double standards as usuall
Anadelfos ,   Athens Greece   (11.17.12)
When a mortar from Syria, exploded into a turkish house near the border and killed 3 persons,a month ago, Turkey retaliated with continous artillery baraz. Now that Israel does the same, after hundreds of rockets hiting Israel's soil from Gaza ,Turkey protests and threats.I wonder when are they going to give up this muslim-oriented foreign policy, and start behaving .
11. Blah blah. 30,000 dead in Syria. Say any more?
Cynic ,   USA   (11.17.12)
12. the truth
Noam Said ,   Israel   (11.17.12)
The Israeli decision to rain death and destruction on Gaza, to use lethal weapons of the modern battlefield on a largely defenseless civilian population, is the final phase in a decades-long campaign to ethnically-cleanse Palestinians. Israel uses sophisticated attack jets and naval vessels to bomb densely-crowded refugee camps, schools, apartment blocks, mosques, and slums to attack a population that has no air force, no air defense, no navy, no heavy weapons, no artillery units, no mechanized armor, no command in control, no army… and calls it a war. It is not a war, it is murder. When Israelis in the occupied territories now claim that they have to defend themselves, they are defending themselves in the sense that any military occupier has to defend itself against the population they are crushing. You can't defend yourself when you're militarily occupying someone else's land. That's not defense. Call it what you like, it's not defense.
13. wait for it erDOGan
DavidR ,   USA   (11.17.12)
erDOGan said, "Every drop of Palestinian blood is pouring from the veins of all Muslims and every tear dropping from their eyes is our tear too." Not quite yet erDOGan but wait for it! It is coming to you sooner than you think.
14. No more Ceasfires without an End !.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (11.17.12)
When all Gazas Militants are Dead, there will be a Permanent Ceasfire Arn.Sweden.
15. Peace on the Gaza Strip
Lmoe ,   Greenacres, USA   (11.17.12)
The Israelis need to help the Palestinians the same way that America has helped the Native Americans (Indians). Give them Money, food, free goverment house, free education, jobs, cars and Casinos. I bet then, the rockets would quit flying.
16. Invite Obama to The Kotel
Astronaut ,   ME, USA   (11.17.12)
An opportune time to extend Obama a warm invitation to return to Jerusalem. Let's see him daven at The Kotel while rockets are falling around his ears.
This has nothing to do with the U.S. This is between Israel and Hamas .
18. To no.12 ( DEAR ISRAEL HATER)
Tomi Budapest ,   Hungary   (11.17.12)
Dear N.Said! It seems you live in Israel and hate that country while you glorify Hamas. You are so biased and hostile towards Israel that it does not deserve any counter-argument. It would not be much more honest from your side to go to Gaza? There you would have access to rocket launching pads and aim the rockets at Israeli citizens any time you wished. What a fun would it be! With kind regards from someone who does not hate other races ( which as I see is a nonsense for you)
19. leaders
spookey ,   birmingham uk   (11.17.12)
arab leaders speak with fork tongue me thinks, they all piss in the same pot
20. What a pathetic choleric idiot Erdoan is!
Mira ,   Vienna   (11.17.12)
He killed thousands of PKK fighters and lots of civilians in Turkey. Fortunatel Israel does not need neither his advise nor will she bow to his threats. I only hope that the rumour from Lebanon is not true and Israel is NOT giving in. This would be the end of her!
21. Obama
Yitzhak ,   TA   (11.17.12)
Exactly who asked for your opinion, Mr Obama?
22. Peace talks.. Rearming tactics
Mervyn ,   Los Angeles   (11.18.12)
Yes, Israel should restrain themselves from surgical strikes (according to the UN) and follow the terrorist example of launching hundreds of rockets and missiles indiscriminately into heavily populated areas
23. Death and destruction in gaza
Butros butros ,   London, england   (11.18.12)
Is this forum only for pro Israelis? The lack of dissent is clearly visible. Show some impartiality. The only democracy in the Middle East I'm not so sure. You are a police state!
24. To people who complained about Gaza blockade
Silim ,   US   (11.18.12)
I hope you are able to count number of missiles smuggled into Gaza blockade notwithstanding. If there was a suffering in Gaza because of blockade, it was because military rather humanitarian were chosen and preferred. What do you think would have happened if there was no blockade? Be honest now!
25. Wanting 6% unemployment for US is good...
Miron ,   USA   (11.18.12)
Trouble is having it.
26. @#4 Fad Egyp
Oren ,   Florida   (11.18.12)
Its a shame that more people like you are not running countries like Egypt and Turkey. The Middle East would be a much different place with your mentality leading these nations.
27. Israel action is jestified
anteneh ,   usa   (11.18.12)
No other country will have the guts to wait this long and act at the end. look turkey they acted against Syria just after one incident that the Syrians fire to them. but israel suffered years of rockets from gaza. so all those arabs crying about gaza should look back to their own backyard. israel as a sovereign country has the right to act against hamas or anyone who bacame pain in the butt. viva Israel. teach them the lesson. they may not accept the reality but they will live it.
28. Obama headed to vacation in Asia.
SD Charger ,   San Diego   (11.18.12)
At least he gave Israel his blessing before leaving. The day he doesn't, we will have serious problems. I bet the Muslim dictators miscalculated that the US would stand behind Israel, huh? No wonder they are crying for a cease fire. Don't stop until Gaza BEGS for peace this time. Finish the job Netanyahu, you will be re-elected and Israel might finally be able to sleep at night-for once.
29. Obama has not screwed up yet
Steve ,   USA   (11.18.12)
Obama is a joke. I don't like him nor trust him. But CURRENTLY he did endorse Israel's right to self-defense. Again I don't trust him but he does have to talk with other countries.
30. @ 21 Are you stupid?
sheik rattle & roll ,   usa   (11.18.12)
Obama opinion means alot since he paid for a good portion of the Iron Dome. It is important that Obama communicates with world leaders regardless of there position because at the end of the day if there is a UN vote the only country that will vote against it, is Obama's USA. So stop knocking one of your only friends left in the world and the most important friend.
