1. We all stand for Israel and for freedom!
Jew ,   SLOVAKIA   (11.21.12)
All murders - terrorist to the prison! They are not only destroing Israel but whole world freedom! Palestina, Iran,Syria and all murders to the prison. Those people have no respect for the human life! Not theirs not ours!
2. For the 100's of millions that the Jewish Federations
Al   (11.21.12)
collect each year in North America both in the USA and Canada, they do a lousy job in promoting and defending Israels interests. They are more concerned about gays, seperation of church and state and equal opportunities for the general popualation. That is why I have never ever supported them for almost 30 years. Their 'support' for Israel is an afterthought. For those who really care like myself and others, I suggest that monies to send directly to loved ones in Israel. If you do not have loves ones there then hop on a plane and start spreading some money around by way of eatng drinking and experiencing the country. Most Jews in America Canada have never been to Israel and dont much care about ever being there.
3. french with israel
dr daniel mostrel ,   paris france   (11.21.12)
french jews are really concerned , every family has a parent in israel , brother sister or son or daughter; we all stand with israel , and shout against the false biased image of this conflict on the french newspapers
4. Orthodox: "increase torah study"?!
nadav ,   tlv   (11.21.12)
are you kidding? Are we living in the Dark Ages?! Stop the superstitious none sense - make aliyah and join the IDF! Have you forgotten "never again"!?
5. Good to see! Much the same happened in Toronto.
Ypip ,   Canada   (11.21.12)
Way to go New York and Paris.
6. No. 4 Nadav
NYC Girl   (11.21.12)
You took the words right out of my mouth.
7. Make alia to Israel
J.Gedalov ,   Israel   (11.21.12)
Come to live here!
8. Another Israeli PR failure-Thin demonstrators in number
Tayfun_Turkey ,   Istanbul   (11.21.12)
I wonder if you plan to vote for Netenyahu and his current partners for failure, defeat and shame?
9. Showing support
Lauren ,   Israel   (11.21.12)
The government of Israel will continue to do whatever is necessary as humanely as possible regardless of what our enemies think but the support of our friends makes these difficult times more bearable. Thank you.
10. Turks think they are on the right side but they are so wrong
Israel will always survive against all bad luck wishes from fashists Turkish people.
11. And, The Leftists,..
Yaron ,   Switzerland   (11.21.12)
French and US Jews demonstrate for Israel. We must, however, search, and search, and search, No, no results. Not even 10 Lefist in their Capital, Tel Aviv dare demonstrate for the survival of The State of Israel. Will the Leftists show regrets, shame, remorse ? It does not look like, sad, very sad. Yet we remember their hysteria in trying to find and expose the non-existing, mysterios, "Spitting Rabbi" earlier this year. Truely, they are hopeless.
12. Loyalty
graczek ,   Maryland, USA   (11.21.12)
This story demonstrates incontrovertibly the basic divided loyalty of Jewish citizens and residents of the various countries of this world, including the US. It is another indication that national authorities should consider countermeasures against such divided loyalty. Support of Israel is in no rational nation's vital interests.
13. #4 Why do universities teach
history from dark ages and other nonsense like art drawn by 3 year olds and calling it "modern art"?
14. #12 it has nothing to do with being jewish but all to do wit
rachel ,   usa   (11.21.12)
with justice ....obviously you hate jews.....
15. respect peoples views
@no 4 ,   RESPECT   (11.21.12)
at least they support the state and IDF ..many even join there's no room for militant atheism ..just respect peoples views as their prayers are with us remember the only reason we have Israel is because of our claim to it through our forefathers and torah When ben gurion and many prime ministers wanted to show the world what our claim was they opened a torah.some even put on a kippah and began to pray
16. #12 Carry the flag, graczek
Cynthia ,   USA   (11.21.12)
The question is which flag do you carry? In your posts you support all the terror regimes of the world including Hamas, Assad, Iran, Hezbollah. Not once have you posted support for America. You say you're a Christian but vile hatred flows from your heart and your fellow Christians denounce you. The outpouring of support for Israel is heartwarming.
17. #12
Jane   (11.21.12)
So you -similarly stand against the Polaski Day parades in the US, you freaking polak?
18. Thank you all :)
Student ,   Israel   (11.21.12)
19. No. 15
NYC Girl   (11.22.12)
Most of the founders of the State of Israel were socialists, agnostics and atheists. However, David Ben-Gurion felt it appropriate to acknowledge the ongoing presence of an Orthodox minority. As a result, he gave them control over things like marriage, divorce and burials (where maybe he thought they could do the least damage), although I daresay if he were alive today, he most likely would have regretted that decision... now that his so-called Status Quo has pretty much gone to hell.
20. Yes, teach Tora so the Naturei Karta ....
David ,   Israel   (11.22.12)
can twist the words of the Jewish Book of Fairy Tales, side with the enemies of Israel and the Jewish people. Just like Hitler, Abu Mazen (Judenrein Palestine), Haniya, Maashal and the Hamas Stormtroopers and Hezbollah SS waiting for the Anschulss of Egypt, Gaza and Lebanon under the New Fuhrer Nasrallah, will not ask who is a Zionist and who is Naturei Karta before sending all of us to the gas chambers in Turkey!
21. # to 19
chana ,   europe   (11.22.12)
we need orthodox peole to take care abotu those things u said, because without them there wont be jewish israel anymore but only israel (if they will accept intermarrieges the children wont be jewish, no jewish children no jewish nation) israel must be and must go according Torah ! because this is Israel ! if we dont have Torah we are nothing!
22. Graczek -The Polistinian
Koose E Mack ,   NY NY   (11.22.12)
Your lack of knowledge of Torah Law and denial of history is almost as obvious as your rabid anti-semitism. As long as a country's laws do not prohibit Jews from practicing their religion, a Jew is obligated to follow the laws of the land. Not so for your Islamic cohorts. Jews are known for being model citizens and contributing to the societies they live in. Aside from hate, squalor, and terrorism, what have your people contributed?
23. #12
Rhonda ,   Chicago, USA   (11.24.12)
So you are saying a person can't love both their mother AND father...divided loyalty according to your argument...
24. #21, Orthodox do not guarantee Israel will survive.
Michael ,   California, USA   (11.24.12)
Israel must survive, Jewish religion is something optional for you to keep in your private quarters. Those brave demonstrators want Israel to survive as a state, not the Orthodox religion to survive. Israel will do fine without religion, has been doing fine despite religion for 65 years now. It is Hannukah soon, so check for yourself who made the Maccabis state collapse in its time, who called on Rome to defeat the Jews. Demonstrators and secular Israelis say "never again" to events like that.
