1. Well done boys in keeping the Rabbi of hate away
Haim ,   TA   (11.25.12)
The low life is just trying to cash in and get a bit of publicity at the soldiers exspense to justify his cost to the tax paying public.
2. Did everyone forget Amalek?
moriah ,   sacramento usa   (11.25.12)
3. Check if he is on the Shabac's payroll
Eytan ,   TA - Il   (11.25.12)
incitng murder is a crime... except when it can be used to demonize certain groups of IL society, then you get away with it and a lot of publicity. Sounds just like everytime we needs to hit the jewsih hitjashvut in eretz israel, at Olso the disengagment and whenever settlers needed to be demonized. Clearly he is an avishai raviv
4. Well done for them!
Cohen,Israel   (11.25.12)
5. #1 Look who's talking about hate.
Chaim   (11.25.12)
Are there any talkbackers who hates Rabbis more than you? What is it with you? At what age did you run away from yeshiva that you're so bitter and depressed and hate anything Jewish?
6. More Ultra-Orthodox Rabbanut-approved crap
kippah seruga ,   Israel   (11.25.12)
7. If a leftist came to speak to them, would
jason white ,   afula, israel   (11.25.12)
they do the same thing? If someone came and said that Israel should retreat to the 1967 lines and all Jewish settlers should be killed. Would these leftists prevent him or her from speaking? But it okay to talk with a Holocaust denier like abu ab-ass. It is okay to listen to the ones that signed the oslo death accords or ethnically cleansed gaza of Jews. Had we done 1% of what was written in the book, then maybe the arabs would be afraid of us and leave us in peace.
8. To # 5 Chaim, as always
Stan ,   Israel   (11.25.12)
your comment has nothing to do with facts. 1. The writer you refer to, did not say that he hates rabbis or "anything Jewish" 2. He congratulated the soldiers for "keeping the Rabbi of hate away" THAT IS ALL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So grow up and relate TRUTHFULLY to the comments made by others.
9. Liberal leftists' even infect the military!
Jake Stone ,   USA   (11.25.12)
In war it's either kill or be killed; there's no time for this leftist crap! You kill because you have to...and, not because you enjoy it. If a young kid is holding a weapon, he's just as dangerous as a man. You kill him before he kills you. War is no respecter of age. So, with the Muslims and their demonic hatred for the Jews, there is no recourse but to kill them, because they could care-less about any social dynamic. With them there is no human equality; all they see is a Jew (he must be killed)--period!!!
10. My previous post not posted...
A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (11.25.12)
I repeat: Kol Hakavod to the soldiers that chased away a hate instigating ultra-orthodox rabbi!
11. Kol Hakavod to the soldiers!
A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (11.25.12)
This is the one and only way that we will truly defeat the aggressive and hate-filled ultra-orthodox. Especially those that are willing to have our sons, brothers and fathers killed while they sit at home and prty!
12. of course the soldiers dont want to hear the truth
P'd off yid ,   South of tel aviv-Is   (11.25.12)
cause the truth sometimes hurts. This is why we celebrate bombing empty buildings and tunnels nobody was in. Perhaps these soldiers who think Torah is not truth can be consoled by barak's pronouncement that "we won because hamas did not think we would make so much damage". Absolutely pathetic.
13. Death of children? Judged as you are.
Sherlock Holmes ,   London England   (11.25.12)
When G-d tells Abraham to listen to Sarah and send away Ishmael and Hagar, it says G-d heard Ishmael's cry and saved him -- because although G-d knew Ishmael would be a source of problems for Abraham's other descendants, G-d judged Ishmael as he was at that moment. In the story of Jonah, Jonah is told to prophecy that in 40 days Nineveh will be turned over -- yet the people repented and were forgiven. The Prophet Ezekiel says the sons do not die for the sins of the fathers, nor do the fathers die for the sis of the sons.
14. dredging up crap
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (11.25.12)
Collateral damage: the death of non-combatants is a fact of war. US/UK troops kill 2 civilians for every enemy combatants, and in Obama's drone attacks 9 civilians die for every combatant. The IDF is much better, killing only 1 civilian for every dead combatant. The "King's Law" reviewed by Rabbi Lior is an academic study about the issue of collateral damage in line with the Geneva Convention. If US and UK followed the "King's Law", there would be far fewer dead civilians. The entire article is irrelevant, and borderline libel.
15. Reply to 2. Amalek, Esau, Ishmael
Akiva ,   NYC   (11.25.12)
Amalek comes from Eau, not from Ishmael. Arabs are from Ishmael, not Esau. Nazis were Amalekites. Arabs are not. It's interesting to note that some of the Nazi racial 'scholars' said that Aryans descended from the Iranians.
16. Number 6. Ultra-Orthodox?
Joe ,   Baltimore, USA   (11.25.12)
The settlers and Rabbi Lior are part of the National Religious group. They are not Haredim or 'ultra-Orthodox'. Most people in both religious groups do not accept Rabbi Lior's views, but he has the same right as the weird and wonderful Israeli academics to express minority opinions. Far from praising Dr Barry or Baruch Goldstein, most of us assume he suffered a mental breakdown and committed a crime.
17. This is amazing!
Adam   (11.25.12)
Our soldiers should be proud of themselves.. Dov Lior is dangerous!
18. #11
Shalom ,   U.S.A.   (11.26.12)
Your country -Israel - facing mortal enemies. north and south, east and west and you are talking about defeating the ultra orthodox?
19. Pravda communist youth leader expels rabbi?
dave ,   safet isreal   (11.26.12)
Omer Parter, an activist in the Working Youth movement ... Prater told his comrades
20. Stopping War Crimes Before They Start
Reid Elattrache ,   Washington, USA   (11.26.12)
This is the discipline that makes strong armies great.
21. Rabbi you are missing a prophecy.
Larry ,   Sioux City USA   (11.26.12)
You seemed to have missed the Genesis 48 and 49 predictions. Quite simply Jews and Israelites are to fill the world by the last days. Who are we to say what the ancestors of the Palestinians were.
22. Shalom # 11
A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (11.26.12)
Look at history. Israel has never fallen from enemies without. It was always the zealots, the ultra orthodox, that has caused Israel (the nation and the people alike) to suffer.
23. #22 Ignorant jerusalemite
Jeremy ,   Tel Aviv   (11.26.12)
Your comment is totally unfounded and the opposite is true. Your ignorance about Jewish and European history matches your antisemitism and xenophobia. It seems YOU are the one that needs to go back study history. Besides, all your hateful comments are totally irrelevant.
24. Thank you Rabbi.
Michael Pielet ,   Israel   (11.26.12)
Rabbi Dov Lior thank you and all the good you do for Israel. This leftist dolt reminds of the saying he who is merciful, to the arab murderers, cruel; will be cruel to the merciful.
25. Rabbi Dov Lior is right.
Yochanan Ben Yosef ,   Rio de Janeiro, BR   (11.27.12)
Rabbi Dov Lior is right, because it is written in the Torah, in Deuteronomy 20:10-18, that God commanded that, in the war, Israel kill all the enemies, with no distinction between combatants and civilians.
26. #23
A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (11.27.12)
Antisemitism AND xenophobia?!? Your thinking my friend is just a little bit confuse. :D
27. Gush Etzion surrender caused by a kid
trump ,   eurabia   (11.27.12)
who was a young arab sheperd. The relief Jewish unit decided to let him live.............. He warned his fellow armed arabs who killed the whole unit and made possible the susequent destruction of the whole Gush Etzion with dozens of Jewish dead ...... It happenned in 1947 ,before the State fundation. What should have been done ? At least,Rav Lior asks the question and there is NO GOOD answer .....
