1. 1 year 8 months not long
A year and eight months is not long compared to the decades of illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine
2. Arab Paper
M. Hartlley ,   Atlanta, US   (11.19.12)
How amazing to realize that there is actually an Arab with guts and a sense of fairness, who doesn't blame Israel for EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME. The comments by Syria would be sad, if they weren't so hilarious. Does 99.9% of the Arab world honestly assume that everybody else believes their propaganda, because it's peddled with a straight face and by a few self-serving news organizations? I only hope that the repercussions against this Arab editor for his honesty will not be too harsh.
3. Preposterous! If Israelis Believe This Lie They Are Idiots
World Citizen ,   the world   (11.19.12)
The attack on Gaza has Netanyahu's fingerprints all over it. It's what Bibi does for a living. To get re-elected he is leading Israel into a very dark corner. He is one of the lowest forms of human life, a politician. Israeli voters would do well to send him scurrying back under the rock him came from.
4. No one protests Assad killing hundreds but if Israel
Ahmad Cohen ,   Ibn Mousa HaLevy   (11.19.12)
has collateral damage as terrorist leaders hide behind women and children, Israel must be blamed.
5. Syria condems
Barry Love ,   Cambridge UK   (11.19.12)
I agree. Why is't the UN and others not condeming Syria. These people are entitled to protection what ever side or comunityn they belong
6. Zionists
Asharq Al Awsat is a Zionist newspaper owned by Adelson and Lieberman. Thousands of dead Syrians is a disagreement between brothers, it is not newsworthy.
7. #1 You mean the decades of
Palestinian terror and Arab attacks (and Arab occupation of Gaza and the West Bank which started the conflict)?
8. BiBi: a decorated paratrooper, hero of Entebbe
JEWDI knight ,   AMERICA THE BEAUTIUL   (11.19.12)
BiBi is the ELECTED leader, unlike iran's monkey boy who financed his own phoney "RE-election" and Abass' three terms (but just one elected)...yet you mumble that BiBi is not legit...baloney! You claim "world citizen", yet you seem to be a citizen of the lowest third world, or even your 4th world of astonishing ignorance and obvious untutored shallow hate...get a life! Read a book!
9. Pals are Arab pawns. Detested and used by all.
SG ,   Teaneck   (11.19.12)
10. illegal occupation
John Galt ,   Colorado   (11.19.12)
Are you talking also of the illegal Arab invation and occupation of what once were Christian lands and Holy sites?
11. #2 Frenemy....get lost

30odd06 ,   Toronto, Canada   (11.19.12)
you're pathetic, probably an Iranian news troll. The article is right, and oh by the way we're coming to Teheran real soon to give your ayabollocks a long deserved reward.
14. Arab paper editorial
graczek ,   Maryland, USA   (11.19.12)
This editorial about the Syrian conflict (which I personally wish didn't have to happen) can be characterized only as a seditious diatribe against the real proper war, which must be a united Muslim-Christian battle finally to liberate the Holy Land from the Zionist jackboot once and forever. The writer should be dismissed from his post and brought to a Muslim country for trial. There are limits to free speech.
15. Arab paper: Syria, Iran instigated Gaza conflict
George Weiss ,   teaneck, NJ , USA   (11.19.12)
It appears that Arabs in Syria kill more Arabs in one day than Israel does in 6, and yet the Turkish PM decries only those killed in Gaza while disregarding those in Syria. This is a blatant effort to focus on Israel and away from Syria.
16. #6
Steve-o ,   Tel Aviv, Isarel   (11.19.12)
HAHAHAHAHAHA "Disagreement between brothers" What kind of savages kill tens of thousands of people over a "disagreement"
17. Nr 6
Serge ,   Antwerp, Belgium   (11.19.12)
Asharq Al-Awsat is Saudi owned.

Watch out for those WMD that disappeared from Iraq into Syria....
19. Syria condemns Israel? LOL!
Jaden ,   Canada   (11.19.12)
I mean really Syria??? You, who have viciously killed your own women and children in bloody massacres condemn Israel for finally defending itself after putting up with relentless rocket attacks from Hamas? I can't believe Syria has the nerve to criticize anyone given that they mass murder civilians daily and have committed the worst war crimes in history. It's unreal!
20. Syria hypocrisy
Lisa ,   Toronto Canada   (11.19.12)
The fact the Syrians can criticize Israel after commiting mass murder on its own women and children would be funny if it weren't so completely true and vile. The Syrians must have taught Hamas all about how to use children as human shields and how to kill a bunch of children and then blame the opposition to skew media and world views. Savages, every last one of them. Both Syria and Hamas should be exterminated along with every other crazy jihadi government (Iran!!)
21. Arab paper: Syria, Iran instigated Gaza conflict
Wasim Ali ,   Srinagar, India   (11.20.12)
It is just a rubbish story, Arab are still playing a harmful role for Muslim ummah, they are not supporting Palestinian and Gaza people but they are just opposing Iranian cause to expose Jewish / Zionist conspiracies against Muslims, sometimes i surprise are Arabs really a Muslim nations... shame on arab and prays to Iran, Hizbullah...may god bless them and their cause..
22. Yes, true story
Ankur ,   Pune , India   (11.20.12)
Yes it is true that what is happening in gaza is to take the heat off Syria, but unfortunately for Islamic world how arabs have already sold their assets to the western world and now they are trying to bring other nations into their league. Its sad to see people in syria killing each other. Iran is the oldest nation or civilization that we knew as persia. I hope we dont lose the culture
23. #21 Makes No Sense
Berman ,   San Diego   (11.21.12)
So, the Arab countries are opposing Iran to expose Jewish conspiracies? What on Earth are you talking about? LOL What kind of sense does that make?
24. Syria killed more arabs in 18mos then Israel in 60 years
lovemom ,   World Citizen   (11.21.12)
World Citizen - brave Arabs like this editor recognize that your kind of hatred of Jews has no answers for the oppressed Arabs AND Persians throughout the region who are sick and tired of blaming Israel and want real solutions to their problems. The truth is that more Arabs have died in Syria in the last 18 mos than Israel has killed in over 60 years of strife (by more than double!) Stop spreading lies.
25. #8 Jewdi - a correction
Carl ,   USA   (11.21.12)
Not to denigrate your other points, but Bibi's brother Yonatan was the hero of Entebbe. This whole world outrage over Israel's defense is remarkable, considering Syria murders more people in a single day than all the casualties combined. And even the Syrian "human rights" group is able to account for civilian and combatant deaths separately.

Truth ,   Montreal Canada   (11.23.12)
Seems to me the Iraqi disinformation Minister is back lol> Muslim news will keep a straight face while distorting the facts.
