1. Misunderstood civil rights..
Beary White ,   Norway   (12.31.12)
Anyonewho calls for the killing of the jewish people should not be allowed to be a MK. Also those who goes on cruise with IHH, should be removed ..
2. Agree with # 1
Rod ,   Fargo N.Dakota   (12.31.12)
Also what would you call that M.K. Zoabi that Arab Woman who assisted the Turk and Hamas Terrorist on that ship.
3. tasteless and despicable act
Marcel ,   San Jose, Costa Rica   (12.31.12)
This doesn't endear some of the settlers to me. I consider this a completely despicable act by that woman. One shudders to think to have her as one's neighbour.
4. #3
deavman ,   Acco, Israel   (12.31.12)
For a second I thought you were speaking about Hanin Zoabi.....
5. Maybe spitting on the terrorist Tibi was not the most
A ,   Belgium   (12.31.12)
correct thing to do, but if she felt obligated to spit on him, she could at least have let him have it square in the face.
6. spitting is wrong
alexi   (12.31.12)
spitting or disgusting acts have no place and tibi deservesa lot of things but spitting is not one of them. In essence, the courts and AG said that tibi can incite, say treasonous things like israel has no rights and should be destroyed and he can still sit like zoabi as an mk and have full rights. Israel needs policies that create facts on the ground and it should start with an informamtion campaign that tells the history of arab occupation of zion as most arabs do not kniow it including tibi and abbas. shimon peres is the only israeli president who acts like he is PM and is interfering in the governing process. He was not elected by the people, he was a political appointment. Olmert has described livni as a failed opposition leader without having what it takes to which she said nothing - she is so gutless. She has no ability to lead israel nor does yechaimovitch, gal on. As for peace now taken captive in egypt- too bad- you bleed for arab nakba- yougot it- sit in their stinking jails as they pull out your finger nails.
7. I am with the Girl heartedly !
Jennie ,   Israel/US   (12.31.12)
What is happening in the Israeli Knesset, pertaining the behaviour of the Arab mk's, is nothing short of blant hatred and constant betrayal of all the principals, the Jewish State was established by...The Israeli government and the Nation must listen to the "wake up" call and change some policies, before it is too late...What is happening ? We are beating up and destroying the homes of our young "mitnachalim"in Yehuda and Shomron(our sovereign undisputed land), we are hating with passion the orthodox Jews and forgetting our history...We forgeting our moral values and our duties to remain who we are, who we meant to be and always have been...And when we allow our enemies become members of our parlament, it isn't democracy, it is lunacy and self-destruction...If Tibi feels, he doesn't enjoy enough justice, freedom and democracy in Israel, he should resign and go look for it abroad...
8. Tibi's and Zoabi's squealing and squawking avail nothing
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (12.31.12)
9. #3 Marcel, Costa Rica
So - it is not ok for an Israeli to spit at an Arab MK, but it is acceptable for a little Palestinian girl to spit at an Israeli soldier. I didn't notice a complaint from you after the report that the Palestinian child who harassed and spat at soldiers had been welcomed in Turkey by Erdogon
10. tells us so much what culture she's coing out of
Son of Yaffa ,   Palestine   (12.31.12)
11. Tibi is NOT the victim; he incites actual MURDER not
hippocrates ,   world   (12.31.12)
spitting. He incites actual TERRORISM not bad feelings. This girl has more courage than all the men in that hall put together. And the author can be included. Tibi & Zoabi not only persist in not serving to give practical benefits to their constituents, they inflame hatred bc they reject with contempt the Jewish people and our history here. They are essentially fatah/hamas working in western Jerusalem.
12. Israelis are sick monkeys
13. To our sweet little llama
Hanan ,   FL, USA   (12.31.12)
Will you marry me?
14. Ignorant jerk - she deserves to be charged and tried
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (12.31.12)
And if convicted she should do community service in a non-Jewish charitable organization to learn about her fellow citizens. Even worse are the disgusting talkbacks from people who otherwise will jump up and down and shout that they support "democracy"....for everybody else except Israeli Arabs. Shame on you all. Tibi is an elected representative to the national parliament and I don't give a s*** what you think - he has every right to speak and be heard. Spitting is a physical assault, is against the law and is a punishable crime. Grow up, all of you, and stop showing what weaklings you are that you are afraid Arabs and want to create a fascist state that denies them civil rights. The majority rules, and most of you are clearly (and thankfully) in the minority. And I'm a "right-wing settler living over the green line".
15. Sanction Settlement Support
Golden Dome ,   Washington, USA   (12.31.12)
Besides a good crack across the mouth, this little terrorist needs to have her stipend revoked for the assault.
16. #9 Interesting that spitting is OK for you
Dovid ,   Los Angeles   (12.31.12)
So it's OK for this horrible girl to spit at an MK with whom she disagrees? Because a Palestinian girl spat at a soldier? And because you didn't hear a complaint from Marcel (who you must be stalking to know such a thing, and who is apparently obligated to comment on every event ever, according to you)? This girl who spat on a solder is the standard against which Israelis should compare themselves? All I can say is that they appear to be doing a pretty good job of sinking to the level of those they claim to despise. And people like you are helping them sink lower every day.
17. She's the prosecutor, judge, jury,& executioner? Inquisition
Miki ,   tampa   (12.31.12)
18. #9
Marcel ,   San Jose, Costa Rica   (12.31.12)
I just read up on the story of the little girl spitting on an Israeli soldier. I equally condemn this action. In fact, it appears even more vile since we are talking about a little girl having been incited to be aggressive to an IDF soldier. To make matters worse, she is lauded by PM Erdogan. I never liked Erdogan and his AKP but illustrates how far off the mark the man is getting to be.
19. to 14
Jennie ,   Israel/US   (12.31.12)
While I don't think, that spitting at Tibi was nice, this is life and another side of democracy at work... Lets just say, that Tibi and Zoabi are not great fans of their country(Israel, (the Jewish State)..And this is quite a proven fact...Both are very articulate to express their contempt to the Jewish State. Every country they travel to, they bash Israel...And We just sit there, listen and let it hapeen in the name of Democracy...Where else in the world do you know it to happen ? Maybe this girl is giving Us All a little wake up Call...You signing your name on this board as " Judean Peoples Front", but you couldn't be further from that idea...
20. #16 DOVID
DAVID ,   On this planet   (12.31.12)
Mind your own business. you live in LA you are no better than TIBI. why don't you learn how to spell your name first then complain
21. #15 Good thing we don't use your justice system
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (12.31.12)
She needs to be charged, tried, and if convicted - sentenced. Smacking her in the face is not part of the Israeli justice system, nor is it part of the justice system in Washington.
22. ynet is going crazy!
Mary   (12.31.12)
Why gives ynet to a spitting young girl such an opportunity to spread her insane ideas? In future thousands of girls will do the same for getting media coverage.
23. To: No. 10
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.31.12)
What do you suppose suicide bombers and firing missiles at innocent civilians says about YOUR so-called "culture?" And do keep in mind that Tibi took an oath to uphold Israeli law -- not just the laws he likes. In particular, as a member of Knesset, he committed an act of treason when he traveled to Libya to meet with Qaddafi. Zoabi routinely flouts Israeli law -- she, too, traveled to Libya and she sailed aboard the MAVI MARMARA, a vessel chartered by the IHH, which Israel considers a terrorist organization. That is an act of treason. Treason carries the death penalty in Israel. I doubt that either Tibi or Zoabi will ever be tried for treason, but at a minimum, they should be stripped of their citizenship and deported. No pension, either.
24. What do you think
Michelle C ,   Charlotte, NC   (12.31.12)
And what do you think of Tibi? She's wrong to spit at him but he's a-ok to call for the death of Jews? That's some f'ed up logic there.
25. Kol ha Kavod to that young girl
David ,   On this planet   (12.31.12)
She had the right to show her anger to that terrorist compare to all the high and mighty Europeans born who haven't learn a thing from the holocaust. are here complaining to show us Israelis how to behave. Get a life for goodness sake and mind your business
26. #16
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (12.31.12)
Nowhere in post #9 does it say that spitting is ok. They are commenting on the double standards that we frequently see. They are jumping to conclusions when they accuse Marcel of not commenting on the little girl. You are jumping to conclusions when you accuse #16 of using the little girls act as a standard and assuming that #9 is endorsing spitting.
27. Tried and convicted?
Racheal ,   Rehovot   (12.31.12)
For what? is it a felony to spit on someone? a misdemeanor? Exactly what law id she break?
28. Tibi did deserve it and what she said about him was true
zionist forever   (12.31.12)
29. the girl has more balls than
Arad ,   Arad   (12.31.12)
the entire justice system in Israel and all the MK. Also she has a great power of synthesis, a spit represent Tibi better than an million words denouncing his perfidy
30. Tibi & Zoabi spit on Israel daily
Cynthia ,   USA   (12.31.12)
They created this animosity. No one to blame but themselves. The young woman communicated with Tibi on his level.
