Mike ,   Tel Aviv   (11.29.12)
Time for the Misrad haKlita to do a bit of soul searching and check out potential immigrants properly before they get here. The fact that an immigrant is Jewish, or his/her spouse is Jewish is not enough and it's about time this nonsense was changed. And dubious testimonials from rabbis in the diaspora are not enough either. People with police records shoud be assessed separately. This is a national disgrace.
2. I'm sure he can get a fair trail in Bosnia
Rod ,   Fargo N.Dakota   (11.29.12)
Just like a Jew could get a fair trail in Syria.
3. extraditing to absurdistan
european   (11.29.12)
so israelis have first-tier and second-tier citizens? would you do this to somebody born in israel? your society is decadent and xenophobic.
4. to #1 and #2
jeff ,   tlv   (11.29.12)
to #1 What % turn out to be problems? 0.0000001%? They do a fine job, being a jew doesnt mean you must criticize everything, its not one of the ten commandments. To #2 they should of never extradited him, a jew needs a safe heaven from draconian prosecution and punishment. Now that Israel does anything the USA says, the only people who will come here will be the poor, rich people want to know that should the usa start chasing them israel wont just ship them back, in the USA they can build a case on anyone for anything. you lied on a credit card application once and said you made 50k a year instead of 60k they can build a case if they want you back in the states. Israel was meant to be a jewish state where jews can escape prosecution, the anti jewish stand in courts around the world is insane, a jew has no chance, and I must say, if I was a wealthy jew in the states, id ask myself whats the point of a jewish state if a jew gets sent to get executed in some country or to do jail time that makes no sense.
5. Not Jewish
PK ,   Northern Israel   (11.29.12)
Makes you wonder if the Supreme Court's decision would have been different were the accused a Jewish citizen of Israel.
6. # 1
Birdi ,   Israel   (11.29.12)
Not that I am defending this man, but no where in the article does it imply that he had a police record before immigrating to Israel.
7. # 2
Birdi ,   Israel   (11.29.12)
The man in question is not a Jew, he is married to a Jewess.
8. you know for all the issues facing israelis...
mark ,   usa   (11.29.12)
You think an israeli publication would be more sensitive to the pitfalls of putting ones foot in ones mouth when it comes to anti-semitism. Really an israeli citizen guilty of crimes against humanity. Come on, this man was not an israeli citizen at the time of his crimes. So while the context the of the article makes this clear why put in print the specific combination of words, "...first time israeli extradited..." Is ynet thinking it's not going to be a slow newsday in iran? talk about ready made fodder. Here is a headline for you, iran could use. On heels of israeli aggression, world finally waking up to its demonic nature, israeli citizen guilty of war crimes. More to inside. From israeli ynet publication....yada yada
9. Did his wife know?
Georges Bruno ,   EU/US   (11.29.12)
Granted. he might not get a fair trial but did he give a chance to those civilians he murdered in cold blood? Maybe the law should be amended to allow the extradition of mass murderers even if they risk execution.
10. US was on the wrong side of that war
BH ,   Iowa   (11.29.12)
We should always protect countries against Islamic expansion.
11. nothing new knowing the police protect MOBSTERS in israel
joe ,   kfar saba israel   (11.29.12)
12. #5 - were the accused a Jewish citizen of Israel ,...
split ,   US   (11.29.12)
It wouldn't make it to Supreme Court or any court and would be ignored by government - Google this: "Lithuania wants to grill top Israeli historian over war crimes" or 'Solomon Morel wiki", just two examples ,...
13. question
DavidR ,   USA   (11.29.12)
Is it too sensitive an issue to ask that we all stop and consider what we would want if it were a situation in which a citizen of a European country was discovered to be a nazi who participated in killing Jews in one of the death camps? We we want the man extradited to Israel? What would we think of the country who would refuse to do it? Has there not been instances where covert operations brought such men to justice? Is it different because in the present case it was muslims who were killed instead of Jews? Mass killing of other human beings is one crime that should require international law to demand extradition. Now I have brought up questions that no other Jew would! Are you going to stone me?

Birdi ,   Israel   (11.29.12)
'' a Jew needs a safe haven'' Aleksander Cvetkovic is NOT a Jew.
15. The matter of facts
Shawn ,   Israel   (11.29.12)
Whether Mr. Cvetkovic is Jewish is irrelevant. What matter is whether there is sufficient evidence that he took part in a massacre. Any citizen Jewish or not who commits a crime against humanity (anywhere in the world) should face trial and not get to enjoy safe haven in Israel.
16. To anyone i understand he's not Jewish
Rod ,   Fargo N.Dakota   (11.29.12)
But you're sending him to a country where he doesn't stand a chance.Some muslims might be moderate there but his fate is doomed.
17. bad idea
A Base ,   France Paris   (11.29.12)
Ok what will happen when the palestinians file a suit by the International Court of Justice against all involved in "operarion cast lead" or the "mavi marmara" incident ?
18. Good start
Ronaldo ,   Hemel , UK   (11.29.12)
About time Israel start cleaning all her dodgy citizens, Not because a murderer, drug Baron, gangster or any other type of criminal is of jewish origin, they can go and hide in Israel and avoid paying for the crimes they have comitted,
19. # 17
Birdi ,   Israel   (11.29.12)
Israel can file a suit at the ICC against the Palestinians for bombing southern Israel. Tit for tat.
20. What a disgrace this state of Israel !
Mark ,   Paris   (11.29.12)
Now they are also extraditing their own citizens ??? As if it was not enough to: - betray the Jewish people living in the Sinai - betray the Jewish people living in the Gaza area - betray the southern citizens, in letting Hamas rain rockets on them... What a corrupt elite this Israel of today has !!!
21. Oh ! really
Sarah B. USA/Israel   (11.29.12)
Well no Jew, no Israeli should be extradited.
22. #15 & #21
Amichai ,   Huntsville, US   (11.29.12)
#15 is absolutely correct. Yes, LAW ABIDING Jews need a safe haven in the world. Mongrels (Jewish or not) who participate in genocide, no matter the nationality/religious affiliation of the victims, should be extradited upon substantial presentation of proof. Israel is not a "safe haven" for people like this, or at least it shouldn't be. I'm a Jew & I would absolutely campaign for the prosecution of any other Jew for this type of behavior. #21, you're exposing supremacist underpinnings here. Jews are not above the law. whether they're in Israel or not.
23. 19 ,...
split ,   US   (11.29.12)
Perhaps you can tell us which came first the chicken or the egg ? ,...
24. # 22 - you corrupted self-hating jew
Mark ,   Paris   (11.29.12)
... some other countries would NEVER extradite their citizens. Never ! Whatever they allegedly did or not... There have been massacres on both sides in Bosnia ! As well as there have been massacres on both sides between Israelis and Arabs... !!! Only a weak and corrupt state / political elite would extradite its citizens... WHAT corrupt TRAITORs this elite of this state of Israel !!!
25. # 23
Birdi ,   Israel   (11.29.12)
Sure, as soon as you roll over & bark!
26. TO NO 21 SARAH B
sam ,   colorado-USA   (11.30.12)
Sarah You are unfair, because you are biased . Suppose, If was an Israeli and a Jew and made all these crimes and massacres against humanity, what would you say?
27. TO NO 22 Amichai thank you
sam ,   colorado-USA   (11.30.12)
I am very enjoyed your feedback, logical analysis and fair and non-biased. I was read all the comments.regrettably I've found all biased thank you
28. # 27 ... why dont you start with the US ?
Mark ,   Paris   (11.30.12)
... the US (and they do it right !) among others would not extradite their citizens. Why dont you start to critizise the US for that first, before you "ejaculate" here in subtle anti-Israel posting, Sam ? Lack of political and historical knowledge, or hidden antisemitism ??? I dont know which is worse...
29. TO NO 24 OH Mark , Paris
sam ,   colorado-USA   (11.30.12)
Not he self-hating but you are, because you support the offender,and the rogue states it would never extradite their citizens.Whatever they allegedly did or not...your words mean the country that protect war criminals is strong and the state would extradite its citizens a weak and corrupt,Thank you very much because you showed me the true picture about the state of Israel !!!
30. # 29
Mark ,   Paris   (11.30.12)
