zionist forever   (12.20.12)
End the occupation No peace process Don't build settlements Give us money I am going to take Israel to the ICC That has to be some kind of crime the way he is boring us all to death with the same speeches and threats day in day out. Bibi take this man to the ICC now its the only way we are going to shut him up. Abbas just retire and write your memoirs like every other politician who is past their sell by date does.
4. #1
Anshel ,   Canada   (12.20.12)
Israel has a strong leader, let the "dogs" bark. Israel has the right to exist within secured borders and with an undivided capital. No matter what the Israelis would do, short of dismantling the State of Israel, the world would be never happy. The world is jealous because of the unprecedented success in those short years of existence of Medina Israel.
5. The United Nations
Cheryl ,   Chicago, IL   (12.20.12)
"We are not like the other nations of the world."
6. A human rights palestinian state
Zechariah   (12.20.12)
Even in South Africa Jews and Whites can live because south Africa has a nonapartheid constitution and needs white and Jewish input-but in the Islam society generally Jews are apes and pigs and those not massacred subject to harsh dhimmism as in Yemen even calls to genocide the christiaNs unless they convert are being heard. Fanatics overwhelming human rights activists and moderate humanitarian Islam .
7. Change...Jewish war criminals arrested upon leaving Israel
Steven Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (12.20.12)
BRANT ,   Hilton head USA   (12.20.12)
You've done it again,. You made it easier for Abbas to behave like a child and forego any compromise. When will you bumbling fools in the EU and the UN ever, ever learn that the Palestinians and the Arab League love troubling Israel and giving it the death of 10,000 little cuts. They do not want compromise and you idiots never make them do a thing. You expect only Israel to act. Well, you now see how your stupidity has made both the Palestinians and the Israelis act. Good job!
9. Sounds like the Palestinians
Howard Immanuelson ,   US   (12.20.12)
Will soon be taking major steps backwards towards the time before Oslo. Yeah, the intifadas have worked so well for you in the past, and you want to go back to one? Okay. Oh, you wanted Israeli electricity and utilities? Good luck with that. Tax money from Israel? Not gonna happen. Maybe your Arab brethren can cover your multi-billion dollar expenses every year. My guess is that Israel will be annexing land and rapidly building next year. This really does cut both ways and the Pals have a LOT to lose too.
10. Ending Security Cooperation?
emanon ,   USA   (12.20.12)
I never knew the arabs were cooperating. How will we be able to tell the difference?
11. Just relax and laugh
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (12.20.12)
It's all hot air from big-mouths. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
12. Just a little protest
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (12.20.12)
Surely before a person or body can speak at the UN on behalf of others a mandate should be required.Neither Abbas nor Fatah has one. What happened to democracy at the UN?This is a mockery of democracy. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
13. Paper Lion
Avram Goldsmith ,   Toronto   (12.20.12)
The moment of truth is on its way, Jordan and Syria as part of Palestine British/ Franch Mandate prepare space for your "brother".
14. the sound of music
tiki ,   belgium   (12.20.12)
A new orchestra has come on the world stage and Israel & the world are invited, better said, ordered to dance to it's warning tones. The orchestra can't survive without being heavily subsidised, but never the less, the world is listening breathless to all the noises it produces, which is the only thing it does. Problem with subsidised orchestra's without talent or financial means is, that when the money stops, the orchestra stops with it and the world moves on.
15. The world is a stage
David ,   Israel   (12.20.12)
As we get closer to Moshiach we see how the world would like to get Israel off the map. What was not accomplished 60 years+ is now coming again this time only a strong hand can help and that is the hand of the Almighty. it's a lie and the Arabs know that as well and we talk peace as if they really wanted it.
16. Should Surprise Nobody
Mark of Lewiston ,   USA   (12.20.12)
The calmer, less confrontational approach has produced no results. Besides, laying off the security forces is inevitable if Israel continues to embezzle tax monies.
17. Keep Going Israel
Moragh   (12.20.12)
Keep up the good work and keep building for your people. It wouldn't be a bad idea if you could take a few of those palestinian people and show them how to build a house that won't be blown away with the first little breeze.
18. Quite frankly
Galut ia ,   Selah   (12.20.12)
it is time for Israel to make the West bank a permanent part of Israel...Give the Palestinians a choice of citizenship or a all paid ticket to any country they want to go to ... it is time to stop the Game ...if it doesn't stop God will intervene .
19. well now they pretty much made sure he's elected.
20. # 18
Jules   (12.20.12)
No need to give them Israeli citizenship, because they are Jordanians.
21. And to Netanyahu, the whole world is an adversary."
Galut ia ,   Selah   (12.20.12)
Actually Folks that is what the Book of Books said it would be like at the Time of the end.... The prophets of old had it right .... folks today ignore it at their own peril... it will play out as the bible says ....
22. Don't let Abbas to get away with it
Paul ,   Raanana, Israel   (12.20.12)
23. if the world thinks
Zion   (12.21.12)
they can simply make Israel go away they are wrong. instead of resolving the Islam problem that spreads like a cancer worldwide (Europe will soon live by the Islamic law, The USA has an islamic president...) they do everything to hurt Israel. if you think we'll go to the ocean or go to the gas chambers again without fighting you are deadly wrong even if it means the end of the world. you think Russia's 1961's bomb was powerful it's nothing compare to the 380 megaton bombs Israel has. this time all of those who are against us (Arab nations, Europe nations...) will go down with us.
24. Sadly, with every move by the Palestine Liberation Org (PLO)
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (12.21.12)
it becomes clearer and clearer to us, Jews, within and without our sovereign nation-state of Israel, that the goal of the leadership of the PLO is not now and has never been to achieve an accommodation of peaceful coexistence with Israel. East of their moves, for the past several decades, only indicate that their are on a path they have chosen which will, in their opinion, lead to Israel's demise. But, instead of doing so through a full scale war, that had been their strategy until the late 1970s and early 1980s, their way has now been to do so in stages. What is sad about the process is the fact that some of us, within Israel, refuse to face this reality; and, that some abroad, due to either lack of knowledge, care, and/or understanding are hypnotized by the PLO's three-piece-suite form of terrorism against Israel and actually side with it.
25. "The Hobbits plan to force USA to it's knees": that's the
tom ,   tel aviv   (12.21.12)
other headline for today :-))
26. #23 You're a fruitcake
Robert ,   Australia   (12.21.12)
27. Abbas the stand-up comedian
Menachem ,   Israel   (12.21.12)
Abbas is irrelevant and his "power" ends on the doorstep to his office. The Arabs should have learned it by now: aggression against Israel only makes Israel stronger and stronger.
28. To #16
Joe Konikakni ,   Israel   (12.21.12)
I presume you are referring to the customs duties which Israel is passing on to Chevrat Hahasmal to pay off seven hundred million shekels of Palestinian debt for electricity. I take it you prefer Chevrat Hahasmal to quit supplying your friends electricity. If that is your desire, I'm sure that can also be arranged.
29. #27. The comedy show ends soon for Abbas.
Chaim ,   Israel   (12.21.12)
Abbas is trying to claim a state on land that has been Jewish for more than 3,500 years. Judea and Samaria will soon have more than a million Jews. Within 20 years; well over two million. The comedy show ends soon for Abbas and the P.A. Their stand up comedy act is about to be cancelled and they will be sent home - out of Israel permanently.
30. # 23's a CHAMP!
big bad Jew ,   United States   (12.21.12)
# 26 you're a chimp.
