1. When Pals can't get Israel by diplomacy violence is next
Sam ,   Canada   (01.06.13)
Palestinians made a charade of getting a state in the UN but in effect they got nothing. They want Israel handed over to them by diplomacy or violence. It's inevitable that when diplomacy fails they will turn to violence. So, it's Israel's job to show them violence doesn't pay. It's Israel's job to show them that either they make peace or they get nothing.
2. be aware

Proverbs 22:8 Whoever sows injustice will reap calamity, and the rod of his fury will fail.
3. Mopping with the tap running NOT ethical, Arab transfer IS!!

4. Once again
Sol ,   Toronto   (01.06.13)
The timing here is not accidental. Just as in the past extremist elements, with certainty being pushed by Iran the MB and jihadists of all flavours, are trying to influence the Israeli elections. Create extremes of violence, mayhem and insecurity and they hope the Israeli electorate will in pavlovian reaction elect a weak fractious and fractured government unable or unwilling to achieve national unity. The pattern is clear, it is not the first time. It is hoped this time will be different - do not take the bait, do not let Iran the MB and their depraved ilk dictate what is good for Israel. We all know what they want.
5. It is mostly disillusioned youth. No jobs, no future.
Joe   (01.06.13)
The PA has done nothing to really creat industry, and blames Israel for everything. There are too many young people with no real future opportunities, this fuels violence. And it is not to be blamed on Israel, the PA has only enriched itself and lied giving unrealistic promises based on non existent claims.
6. #2 peacemaker
solomon ,   bklyn   (01.06.13)
Excellent quote- and should be repeated to the arabs many times over; in addition to reminding the world that this did not begin in 1948, when seven arab armies attacked Israel, but in the arab pogroms of the late 1800's and 1900's.
7. AK-47 or Galil ?
zionist forever   (01.06.13)
Rabin gave the PA thousands of Galil rifles as part of oslo and the Galil looks very much like the AK-47 So are they Israeli made rifles donated as a peace making gesture in the hands of people who want to kill Israelis ?
8. Eventually the Palestine Resistance will overthrow the
Len ,   USA   (01.06.13)
israeli over-lords. All occupiers/settlers & IDF will be eliminated or removed.
9. Either/and/or
Get Real ,   UK   (01.06.13)
1) IDF Commander said the third intifada has already begun. 2) Shin Bet Chief said chances that a full-scale armed Intifada erupting in the WB are slim. What is clear is to stem the current round of incitement and to ensure there are always adequate reservists available for all scenarios.
10. Israel is a fascist country
Gregg ,   Haifa IL   (01.06.13)
11. intifada
Gengis ,   Ulanbator Mongolia   (01.06.13)
Do what I did and you'll have 1000years of peace. Be more benign and repatriate them to Jordan/Arabia.No Africa and it will last 100 years. Negotiate a 2nd state on your borders and you will all be dead in 10 years.
12. #10
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (01.06.13)
So tell us, what kind of idiot chooses to live in a fascist couintry?
13. #8 len - your ignorance is showing
solomon ,   bklyn   (01.07.13)
14. Learn from our mistakes
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (01.17.13)
Israel needs to learn from our past mistakes in dealing with mobs of rioting Arab settlers. Israel must not play their game, but make our own rules instead.
