1. Obama is guilty, he told about 1967 borders.
ROSENVALD ,   BRASIL   (12.06.12)
2. They are fed up with occupation
Dave from Brazil ,   Sao Paulo   (12.06.12)
Israel must stop its controversial building plans and start negotiating seriously with Abbas or else such incidents will be more frequent and more severe.
3. We shouldn't "flee the scene"
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.06.12)
We should fire into unruly crowds -- see if that doesn't disperse them in a hurry. That's what every other country on the face of the earth would do, and Israel is under no obligation to be more moral. If rampaging Arabs interfere with the IDF, make them pay a very high price for that interference. That's the only language the ersatz "Palestinians" understand.
4. END THE OCCUPATION of Jewish land by "Palestinian" ARABS.
Jerry ,   The Netherlands   (12.06.12)
5. Easy enough - return en force and give Pallys a whippin'
William ,   Israel   (12.06.12)
Tear gas and crowd dispersal means would work against the stone throwers of Hebron. and we know where the PA police reside so pay them a visit, arrest the suspect, and deliver 5 square punches into the face of the PA officer who deserves it.
6. contiguity
robins ,   Jerusalem   (12.06.12)
Enough with the nonsense about E1 preventing contiguity of the Palestinian state. It doesnt. The Palestinian state at that point will be as wide as Israel is on the coastal plain.
7. weapons
Real vision ,   usa   (12.06.12)
Israel should really think twice about giving the palestinian police any more weapons. They will...Sooner rather than later be turned on israelis
8. 100% agreement with Sarah B. @ #3
Israeli 2   (12.06.12)
9. Arab officers' stress is understandable
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (12.06.12)
They probably won't be paid this month. They can blame Abbas's brilliant diplomacy for that. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
10. 2day's events come 2 us thanks 2 Baruch Goldstein & ...
other self righteous right wing terrorists! Don't forget what happened in the USA when the African Americans began rioting ... it spilled over into the mainstream. The Palestinians in Hebron are fed up with the way they are treated by the right wing terrorists living there and so they are taking it out on the IDF.
11. #2 - Bad adviser
Paulo ,   Brazil   (12.06.12)
You are a bad adviser. Take care of your Sao Paulo city (and your people) where only this year 2012 more than 90 police officers were executed in cold blood by gangs in the city streets.
12. Are these fakestinian troops the ones trained by the USA and
Uzziel   (12.06.12)
the Brits? Yes they are...
13. To #2
Ben ,   US of A   (12.06.12)
Are you kidding, ignorant, or just anti-Semitic? International law, moral law, ethical law, even the Bible states that Israel is allowed to build anywhere in Israel, in "West Bank", in Gaza, and probably even more territory besides the above mentioned. It is only controversial to those with an agenda. #4 Jerry from the Netherlands has it %100 correct.
14. To sarah the B
David ,   NY,NY   (12.06.12)
looks like it is time to join your children in NY. The beginning of the end of Occupation.
15. Whine, Whine, Whine, Whine. All We Ever Did to Them
Doug ,   Rochester, USA   (12.06.12)
was illegally occupy, colonize, steal land, steal water, constantly humiliate them, imprison them without charges or trial, and they have the nerve to punch us in the face. The Pals are SO ungrateful. Whine, whine, whine, whine.
16. hebron
yakov ,   miami,jerusalem   (12.06.12)
bibi is responsible for giving our ancient capital to the fakes. bibi is a godless schizophrenic jew. stop feeding the islamonazi crocodile and appeasing the jew hating arabs
17. Really, Sarah?
Dave from Brazil ,   Sao Paulo   (12.06.12)
The Palestinians have absolutely no right to protest the occupation of the land which is internationally-recognized as theirs and should be shot at if they dare lift a hand against their occupiers. Do you really believe that? Any decent human being would consider this just sick and wrong.
18. To: No. 2
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.06.12)
And we are fed up with their primitive and barbaric ways and their penchant for violence and terror. Moreover -- they are not under "occupation." They illegally occupy our land.
19. Dave from Brazil # 2
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (12.06.12)
Abbas and his people don't negotiate they only make demands. Israel has tried talking, giving land, electricity, water, etc and Abbas and his people give nothing in return. These incidents will be more frequent and more severe the more Israel treats these people with kid gloves. Israel needs to take off the gloves and act like most any other country would like post # 3 says. If anyone here needs to stop what they are doing and negotiate it is Abbas not Israel.
20. Sarah @3
"That's what any other country would do" Are you being funny? Cause you're not. Other countries don't militarily occupy others and abuse the locals as Israel has been doing on Palestinians in Hebron for the past 45 years
21. #15 Stupid comment
NudNik69   (12.06.12)
All Israel's fault is it? Sorry buddy - these filth are liars and barbarians. When they aren't trying to kill Jews , they are busy killing each other. Their stories are all lies & BS but got you sucked in.
22. just an other few meters....
les ,   canada   (12.06.12)
down the sleepery slope. good old israel is being pushed around by anyone ready to suckit to israel. and the NEVER AGAIN starting to happen AGAIN.....
23. Nice, it was about time!
Erika ,   Sweden   (12.06.12)
Give high-tech weapons to Palestinians, so if there's "another conflict" between these two problematic states, that way they can have a fair fight.
24. Ultimately, "Palestinian" poseurs must go!
Chaim ,   Israel   (12.06.12)
We should prepare concrete transfer plans.
25. yes we are fed up with arab occupation of our land.

One example: Territorial changes of Poland immediately after World War II: Poland received the Free City of Danzig and former German territory east of the Oder-Neisse line, consisting of the southern two-thirds of East Prussia and most of Pomerania, Neumark (East Brandenburg), and Silesia. The German population was forcibly expelled before these "recovered territories" were repopulated with Poles from central Poland and those expelled from the eastern regions. You know nothing, go clean you carpet.
29. The end of impunity - That makes my day ;) ,...
split ,   US   (12.06.12)
30. nr. 13 - Surely you are joking :-)
Harmen ,   Leiden, Netherlands   (12.06.12)
Dear Ben, US of A, I assume that you are joking? "International law, moral law, ethical law, even the Bible" state that Israel is allowed to build anywhere in Israel, including the West Bank and Gaza? Let me address your points: International law: the current opinion among most international law scholars is that Israel is occupying the West Bank, and therefore has certain responsibilities. The transfer of Israeli people to the West Bank is probably illegal under international law. In the coming years, the ICC may rule on this. Furthermore, the United Nations, the highest body in international law, seems ever more critical of Israeli policies. If you cite international law, you have to accept that the UN - meaning the body of states around the world - is the main arbiter of international law. Otherwise, do not quote international law, because then you are only cherrypicking. Moral law: we could argue morality for ages. But what about the golden rule? As you want to be treated yourself, so you should treat the other. Would you like it if anyone were to build settlements, annex lands, build fences, and continuously intervene in Israel? No you wouldn''t. So perhaps you also should not do the same thing to the people living in the West Bank. Ethical law: ethics is often desciribed as a study of morality, of what is right and wrong. Again, one could discuss right and wrong for hours, even days. But a good place to start is again the Golden Rule, see the text directly above here. Bible: well, I have read the entire Bible. And believe me, nowhere in that fine book is a line that says that Israel is entitled to build wherever in the West Bank it wants. There is a text in the New Testament, that says that Jesus feels that what you do to your fellow human, you do to him. Well, I do not know if the way Israelis treat the Palestinians in the West Bank is the way you would like (or dare) to treat Jesus? I for one would not like to do so. Now, I expect many people on this site to merely, ignorantly scream that Israel is right and that there are no Palestinians and that Palestine is Jordan and that Jews are good, Arabs are bad and other juvenile bullsh*t. (The reality, of course, is that both sides have behaved horribly and stupidly over the years). However, should you have serious counterarguments to make, feel free to mail me on
