1. It's not an IDF unit
Edward ,   England   (01.03.13)
magav, border guard, it's a police unit, not army
2. Civilized behavior is futile
Amichai ,   Huntsville, US   (01.03.13)
The police went in to legally apprehend a know terrorist and the population mobs them. This is when the IDF needs to target the terrorist with a missile strike and to hell with the "civilian" casualties. If they're protecting a known terrorist, then they get what they deserve.
Adam Balm ,   AMERICA THE BEAUTIUL   (01.03.13)
IT'S TIME FOR ISRAEL TO PROTECT IT'S WARRIORS...police, IDF, all need support against the PERPETUAL RAGE of the JEW despising crazies, squatters, beggars and thieves. Where is the electronic CROWD CONTROL???
4. PLO...
nadav ,   tlv   (01.03.13)
The PLO is behind this no doubt, especially now that they have EU backing! Israel should support the Basques and Corsicans for their LEGITIMATE fight for independence!
5. I am certainly no leftist
PersianJew ,   Holon   (01.03.13)

6. About time to start
Mira ,   Vienna   (01.03.13)
to use life ammunition, IDF is much too civilzed still for that rogues!

10. Army retreats??
Dennis ,   NJ USA   (01.03.13)
someone has to be kidding this would NEVER happen here, if cops would go to arrest some murderer, and a bunch of thugs would beat them back!
tony ,   nigeria   (01.03.13)
But Americans are using drones to fight terrorism in Aghanistan and Pakistan with large civilian casuatlies in the very nose of ICC, EU and the UN. Any difference?
12. No shortage of right wing racist YNET talk backers, again
Steven Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (01.03.13)
13. POOR POOR IDF.....
les ,   canada   (01.03.13)
evidently they are not equipped with weapons, so any bunch of kids can chase them away with stones. and they are thinking of attacking iran, just too funny to contemplate.
14. # 11
Birdi ,   Israel   (01.03.13)
The IDF troops were ''seeking to arrest a top (Palestinian) terrorist operative." Drones cannot arrest a person!
15. What is the IDF thinking?
Mark ,   Cleveland USA   (01.03.13)
So in an effort to prevent an escalation of violence in the West Bank, the decision was made to increase arrests, done in broad daylight. Sounds to like the government is trying to stir up a little violence to show the world why their settlement expansion policy is justified. After all, who can negotiate with these violent people?
16. #8 maybe you'd just prefer the idf open fire in a massacre?
razors ,   clapham, uk   (01.03.13)
17. #8 maybe you'd prefer the idf just gun them down?
razors ,   clapham, uk   (01.03.13)
18. Problem is,Birdi #14....
Keren ,   IL-BR   (01.03.13)
....that IDF went seeking to arrest a top (Palestinian) terrorist operative BUT... encountered 500! Should´t a drones be utilized?
19. To: No. 13
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.03.13)
Will you still be laughing when the powers that be unleash the IDF? I suspect not.

jerome ,   basalt, colorado   (01.03.13)
most Canadians have something intelligent to say. What happened to you?
22. #5: please let me explain
david ,   new york   (01.03.13)
i think you are swallowing leftist propaganda. the left tries to brainwash people by claiming that somehow by giving up land to the arabs we will have a stronger jewish majority in the rest of israel. nothing could be further from the truth and it is on its basis completely illogical: the arabs will be there one way of another, having them as part of an enemy state certainly does not make us safer. in any case our demographics are fine: both haredim and settlers have really high birth rates and arab rates are dropping: dont smoke the leftist dope!

JL   (01.03.13)
you are truly a grotesque troll..
24. Best method of crowd control is setting
jason white ,   afula,israel   (01.03.13)
the S.A.R. on automatic and firing into the rioters. Riot shot guns with 00 shot and grenades. It is either the terrorists and their supporters or us. I prefer to rid the world of these terrorist scum. bibi and buraq are not the people we need to lead us in a war against terrorism or just to defend Israel. Neither is shelly, zippy the pin head or moo-fass. W need new people in the knesset and we need to remove old man peres from public life.
25. To: No. 8
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.03.13)
Would you rather the IDF shoot into the crowd? Oh, that will disperse them quickly enough -- they are, after all, nothing but cowards -- you cannot have it both ways. So, what's your preference? Warning: I'm setting you up. Heads I win; tails you lose.
26. #14
tony ,   nigeria   (01.03.13)
The IDF is trying to civil in the face serious life taking violence, which is not done anywhere, not even in USA, Iran, Syria, North Korea, Russia, France, Germany, Britain, to avoid world outrage, the EU, the UN, and the threat of filing charges at the ICC. But the Americans are using both arms and drones to fight terrorism in Aghanistan and Pakistan with large civilian casualties in the very nose of ICC, without protest from EU - Ashton - that lonely woman, and the UN. Any difference? Look at how violent they are in the pictures and videos, yet the western press, the EU, the UN are silent.
27. Syrian Army Methods
David ,   Montpelier USA   (01.03.13)
The IDF should use the same methods as used by the Syrian Army as the Palestinians have no objection to such methods.
28. # 18
Birdi ,   Israel   (01.03.13)
''Should'nt drones be used?" If the intention of the IDF was to kill the 500 Palestinians, then yes, drones should have been used. The IDF were not prepared for 500 rioting Palestinians & they sure as hell did'nt think to use a drone.
29. ALL violent Arabs should be thrown out of
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (01.03.13)
Judea and Samaria...ON THE SPOT !
30. TO CHRIS NR. 29.
