1. gideon saar
nir ,   jerusalem   (12.24.12)
i am very happy that the likud is sending people like Gideon saar,miri regev ,dany danon and feiglin in front of cameras and microphones. They do a great job to damage likud election chances. I had it with likud.No vision at all, only bla bla bla. Thanks .
2. Minister Gideon Saar
Dazul ,   Ramat HasharonIsrael   (12.24.12)
Gideon Saar behaves and talks like the last of fascists, he should be ashamed for a seemingly educated person. !
3. 2 states for 2 people was already taken care of.
Chaim ,   Israel   (12.24.12)
Jordan agreed to take their brothers home because they realized that Israel is much too small to include Arabs. So what's your problem Mr. Saar?
4. Politics, Bibi has said yes already
Simantov ,   Jerusalem   (12.24.12)
Boy the depths that men will bow to get elected. Bibi has repeatedly declared his desire for a palistinian state. I think this man needs to go and talk to bibi and find out that Israel is being sold out. As we live day by day Israel is spending millions putting in the infrastructure and roads for a PA state.
5. So Likud has a different platform from Bibi?
Yosi ,   Gilo-Jerusalem   (12.24.12)
Utter Hypocricy! Can it be illegal to disobey an illegal order? Gideon, are you also suggesting that you and Bibi are bound and determined to through Jewish families out of their homes?
6. Likud supports Palestinian state
Steve Klein   (12.24.12)
After the Prime Minister's June 2009 speech at Bar Ilan University, the Likud party gave at least implicit or de facto support to the idea of a Palestinian state in Israel's heartland. There was no organized opposition to the speech. Soon thereafter, at the prime minister's urging, Likud party leaders delayed elections which might have dealt with this issue; further strengthening the prime minister's position at Bar Ilan. Likud leaders have repeatedly urged PLO Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to renew negotiations presumably toward that end. Claiming Likud does not support a Palestinian state in Israel does not ring true.
7. Killing Zionism
Avramele   (12.24.12)
Likud Beitenu is destroying the hope of our people to live as a free people in our own land. The Likud platform is a defacto call for a binational state and apartheid within it.
8. I do not remember !
FO ,   Belgium   (12.24.12)
Can somebody help me please ? I indeed I remember that PM Netanyahu in his Bar-Ilan speech spoke about a two-state solution. But did he in an explicit way say that the "Palestinian state" should be in the so called "West-Bank" ? Perhaps he had in mind Jordan ? Who can help me ?
9. The question isn't
"How can man who called for disobedience in IDF sit in government?" referring to Bennet, but how can anyone who has no problem expelling Jews from their rightful homes in the Jewish state sit in a Jewish government? Haven't Gidon Saar and others learned anything from PM Sharon who is suffering all these years from his folly of his expulsion of 10,000 Jews, most of which are still suffering?
10. #1 and #2
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (12.24.12)
#1 It is good to hear clear differences between the parties so the voters can pick. If a month ago you were angry when Grad rockets fell on defenseless Jewish children in settlements like Rishon and Gedera, you might conclude that Saar and the Likud are a good choice. If the Grads did not bother you, you can always vote Zippy, Sheli or Yair and their plan for a Hamas state in rocket range of Modiin, Shoham, Kfar Saba, Raanana and Ramat Hasharon. #2 why is it when Leftists have no logical answer to rational comments, they resort to ad hominem attacks? Do you even know what the word "fascist" means, or is it a catch-all phrase for "guys I don't like who are smarter than I am"?
11. Ah zooo?
Ahmet, Turkey ,   Istanbul   (12.24.12)
Then no to Israel! You are playing to the hand of Hamas. LAst 20 years of Israel.
12. As long as Bibi does not renouce
paul ,   Jerusalem   (12.24.12)
his statements of a solution being '2-states', then Likud will never get my vote. If everyone on his ticket was Kahane characters, I still wouldn't vote for some who reminds me the Sharon.
13. One half of one percent,
Menachem Ben Yakov ,   Yerushalayim Israel   (12.24.12)
Out of an enormous middle east the Jewish claim, at it's very maximum, is about one half of one percent.
14. ok not fascist but clearly we are in pre-fascist danger zone
avramele   (12.24.12)
Characteristics Of Fascism Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each: 1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism 2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - 3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc. 4. Supremacy of the Military 5. Rampant Sexism - 6. Controlled Mass Media - 7. Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses. 8. Religion and Government are Intertwined . 9. Corporate Power is Protected 10. Labor Power is Suppressed - 11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts 2. Obsession with Crime and Punishment 13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption 14. Fraudulent Elections
15. Europe and America
Philip ,   Afula, Israel.   (12.24.12)
If Europe and America determine that there shall be two states for two peoples, then thats whats going to happen. All the rest is hollow swagger.
16. Minister Sa'ar to Ynet
Voice of Reason ,   Here & Now   (12.24.12)
Big mistake the Likud made attacking Bennet, I was not sure of who to vote for, having voted for the Likud in the past. They have lost my vote Bayit Yehudi here I come.
17. Sa'ar
MONA ,   US   (12.24.12)
I can see a palestinian state coming on 67 land,because all the world is against us except Palao.
18. Even a dog knows there will never be a Palestinian state
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (12.24.12)
on the ground. Bibi is just trying to keep the Obamas of the world off his back with the "two state" rhetoric. Deep down even Obama himself knows it, but he has to keep up the front.
19. No, I guess not, but...
Aviv ,   Jerusalem   (12.24.12)
"Can a man who called for disobedience in the IDF sit in the government?" No, I guess not, but traitors are permitted to sit in office. Even aboard boats with enemies of the state in support of harming soliders.
20. Netanyahou is a liar. He did everything to avoid
Allan   (12.24.12)
Negociations. Lieberman is an extremist thief. Those 2 are showing the real image of Israel.
21. How long can israel stand alone, against mankind?
22. The two state solution is already..
ben zeev ,   be olam   (12.24.12)
a reality since 1948 , Israel and Jordan, which was made up of Palestine under the British mandate. The fakestininan arabs are nothing else but a ruse and the least they can get is a semi autonomy and not a state, so Israel, let's cut to the chase and stop that Oslo non sense!
23. Time to clarify and stand firm to the world
Maurice ,   Los Angleles   (12.24.12)
An Arab state on the land of Israel should never be part of any negotiations. The only reason the US is talking 2 states today is because Israel introduced the idea. R. Reagan was very surprised by it and taken off guard. We have to make clear what our position is and don't worry about pleasing the world.
24. #18, Dear Noodles...I could not have said
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (12.24.12)
it any better !
25. Interesting
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (12.24.12)
So when is Energy and Water Minister Landau resigning or being forced from office? In 1995 he said this over the possibility of removing Jewish villages on the Golan - “Anyone who dares send security forces to evacuate Jewish settlements is clearly doing something illegal,” These are his exact words - so why is he in the government?
26. yes to the palestinian state, but NO to a terrorist state
Daniela   (12.24.12)
27. # 18 , Which mankind ?..
ben zeev ,   be olam   (12.24.12)
The anti semitic european kind that for centuries oppressed, humiliated and murder the jewish people, the russian one, with history of pogroms , the genocide prone and hateful moslem world, or the sheep like, corrupt third world countries that follow the money trail, I do wander which one you refer to ?
28. #18, Noodles, hmm... I think like you.
David Aaronson ,   New York, USA   (12.25.12)
Guess why...
