2. These countries have trade agreements with Israel
Tova ,   Canada   (12.18.12)
what their problem. Does Israel interfer with these countries and their policies. NO. Abolish the UN and things will quickly turn for the better. The UN no longer represents the world.
3. EU
aaron ,   toronto,canada   (12.18.12)
4. we dont complain when people build houses
in london paris ,   berlin or lisbon   (12.18.12)
so these muppets near to stfu and not say anything about us building homes in our eternal undivided capital.... they have no say in the matter
5. Britain, france, germany , Portugal
eddie ,   London UK   (12.18.12)
Britain + France: Crusades portugal - Inquisition Germany, no need to mention their hypocrisy. The EU/Roman conquest is over.
6. Continue....
kristian ,   paris france   (12.18.12)
to build and take no notice of Europe. European leaders are having to bow to their muslim electorate. Paris, Lisbonne, Berlin and London are now home to hordes of vile islamists who threaten the european continent. Our european leaders are cowards and think by slammming Israel at every opportunity the islamists will leave us alone. Hope you re-elect Netanyau as PM, that will annoy the lefties in europe no end.
The hostile european jew haters can go " slam " and we will build.
8. EU as lousy as the UN
A ,   Belgium   (12.18.12)
There's kind of a serious problem in Syria that hasn't been resolved, remember? There are children dying of disease and lack of food and clean water every day in Africa and Asia, remember? A mentally disturbed American walks into a school with weapons and snuff out the lives of 20 people, mostly little kids, remember? And the "palestinians" , including your friend the terrorist Abbas, STILL refuse to recognize the Jewish State of Israel, remember? But when Israel decides to expand her capital city of Jerusalem by adding *GASP* 1500 homes...I have a better name for you all: PISS= Pathetically Ignorant and Stupid Statespeople. Be proud of your new title!
9. Hypocrites...I will wait for them to censure formaly
Yosef ,   Boca Raton   (12.18.12)
Hezbolla and Hamas etc. Then their word still wont carry any weight.
10. This land is only ours
Jewish Patriot ,   Galut   (12.18.12)
Our ancestors bleed for this land. They fought against the Egyptians, Arab tribes, Macedonians, Greeks, Persians, Romans and so on. We fought for our land which is only c 20 000km2. And even the world want to steal it from us. They were never that time. With the 2 main religions (Christianity and Islam) they found out that they want the land of Israel. But they never contributed to it. Arabs never fought for it, they immigrated to our country when Romans defeated us, they didn't build, they just ruined, now we built a coutnry after 1948 and they want to destroy it. Only the Jews fought for Israel, even crusaders came there just to rob ancient Jewish golds and arts, but only the Jewish heart bleed for Israel, and the so called "oppressed" Palestinian "freedom fighters" are nothing more than just violent and disgusting terrorists who even make their children to be suicide bomber. Nobody has the right to tell anything bad about Israel, there are not settlements in West Bank or elsewhere, that is the land of Israel too. And if the Arabs who 100x live better in Israel than in the neigboring countries should LEAVE if they do not respect our laws. France talks? When they deport Gypsies who come from EU member countries? Then we can do the same if our laws are hurt by another nation...
11. Ignore the transient noise, and keep building in your land.
Jake ,   USA   (12.18.12)
David ,   NY   (12.18.12)
13. Enough with the meaningless condemnations
Giora Me'ir ,   USA   (12.18.12)
Take concrete action already.
14. the dogs bark and the caravan goes on.....
gilberto ,   porto feliz - Brazil   (12.18.12)
Mass murders happened in checz republica, Servia, Montenegro, South sudan, Syria and many others. The silent and powerless UN was unable to avoid the hundreds of thousands of deaths. Let them bark on the GA. Israel government is commited to the defense of his own people and also Ha Shem, anyone else.
15. when italy leaves sardinia, uk leaves scotland etc etc
ralph   (12.18.12)
16. Israel better reconsider or else...
Melissa ,   US of Ar   (12.18.12)
I am not kidding! at the moment Israel is committing the heinous war crime in the world. the Palestinians must file war crime charges against them. in my lifetime I have not witnessed a more vile, criminal, heinous, treasonous, war crime in my life. the world is getting tired of Israel, and when Obama taps Chuck hagel as Secretary of defense and Van Jones as Secretary of state, Israel is going to be just an after thought. by the end of Obamas second term, Iran, hezballah and Hamas are going to be the main allies of America in the middle east, and Israel an enemy. don't test the new America. I feel sorry for Israel's like amos oz and livni. those are heroes in my eyes. once Israel is demilitarized and the Palestinians get their firepower, the Palestinians will make Israelis live in peace under Islamic rule, and then their will be peace in the world.
tony ,   nigeria   (12.18.12)
Keep BUILDING, BUILDING, BUILDING, BUILDING, BIBI. It is your land. The God of Heaven will protect you and Israel. Fear not. Be courageous like Joshua and Caleb, for it is the LORD that fight your battles.
18. Build-Build-Build
Dan ,   Florida - Tel Aviv   (12.18.12)
When the EU condemns and punishes the Palestinians for their terrorism and demands reparations for the innocent Jewish lives they destroyed, then and only then should we listen to the EU. Build Bibi, build.
19. Israel is so arrogant
Israelis are a bunch of arrogant monkeys
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRA EL   (12.18.12)
We're not about to build in their countries, nor we plan to
21. You Can't Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too...
musicwriter4life ,   USA   (12.18.12)
How about a nice Bronx cheer for the EU, whose "double standards" concerning Israel and the PA are at fault for that which they are "condemning..."
22. Alleged Settlement Looks Like Las Veags
emanon ,   USA   (12.18.12)
High rise apartments, terraced houses, obviously long term buildings are hardly the makings of a settlement. This is not some random collections of shacks, tents and trailers / caravans, this is civilization, this is permanent. Call this what it is: URBAN EXPANSION!
23. Announce plans every day until they get tired of condeming
JustMe ,   Israel   (12.18.12)
24. answers
tiki ,   belgium   (12.18.12)
This is the only way to make it clear to the Europeans to mind their own business. The colonisation of Jewish lands & bullying of Jews is over. WW2 ended in 1945 and Israel & the Jews of 2012 are fed up with their barking, orders & warnings. If the so called Palestinians want peace, they can come to the table and they will get peace!
25. Who to believe, the EU or our prophets?
Steve Klein   (12.18.12)
The prophet Isaiah wrote of regathered Israel: ""Enlarge the place of your tent; Stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not; Lengthen your cords And strengthen your pegs. "For you will spread abroad to the right and to the left. And your descendants will possess nations And will resettle the desolate cities." What Bible does the EU read?
26. Get lost
Sam M ,   UK   (12.18.12)
Keep building and tell these euro wimps where to go. It's not their business where a democratically elected Israeli government decides to build homes for it's citizens. All of the land in question is a part of the Jewish homeland a fact overwhelmingly supported by the historical evidence. Whatever these idiots do will be infinitely preferable to a second palestinian terrorist state. Once the rockets start landing in Israeli towns and cities you can count on the eu to call for both sides 'to show restraint' and of course to condemn any Israeli attempt to hit the terrorists as a 'disproportionate response'. It's so predictable you can write the script with every confidence that these jelly fish will rise to the occasion!
27. Slam away boys; We say. Never again
Tambour ,   Eilat   (12.18.12)
28. #19
Moshe of Rockville ,   Rockville,MD USA   (12.18.12)
Israelis are not "monkeys," for they have to survive in an atmosphere of hate,intimidation and genocidal tendencies of their neighbors.Israelis may be arrogant,but not more than those of the EU and the US.Israelis do not turn the other cheek.They are bold,brave,kind and generous to a fault. Clear examples of these characteristics can be found in their their medical treatment of enemy civilians and POWs who need specialized care found only advanced and sophisticated treatments.
29. Tell E.U. to mind it's own business once and for all!.
Chaim ,   Israel   (12.18.12)
We are not guetto Jews. Israel doesn't interfere in E.U. affairs. The E.U. has no business interfering with Israel. Tell the E.U. to mind it's own business once and for all! This tiny land has belonged to Jews for thousands of years before European civilization existed.
30. 25 are you for real?
In Europe we are way after bible stuff. It's not middle age anymore!! In Europe we are already in the 21st century. Maybe you should take an history book just to check how many have died I'm Europe because of your bible. If you want to build a country based on tales and fantasy do it in your own cave
