2. What will Leef do 10 years from now?
zionist forever   (01.06.13)
I would love to know what she will do in 10 years when these protests will be long forgotten and nobody and if you ask somebody who Daphne Leef is they will say no idea. She has got so used to the limelight as miss social justice, she even quit her job to become a full time PAID social justice activist so can she ever be an ordinary person again? What will she do when people do forget her name? Think it would also be interesting to see what would happen if she won 5 million Shekels on the lottery. How would she feel about being one of those rich people she despises so much.

Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.06.13)
She IS one of those rich people she despises so much. At least until mummy and daddy stop paying her rent and giving her a stipend. Then, she might actually have to get a low-paying job, and become one of those people she pretends to support.
5. Who is this woman?
Shalom ,   U.S.A.   (01.07.13)
I never heard about her, but after watching this video, i'm under the impression she's a junkie. Disgusting!

7. whats up with all the hating?
sderoti ,   israel   (01.07.13)
Say what you will about her person (although i think its pretty irrelevent) but She was one of the major catalysators to sparkin up all these tent citys all over israel. A reawakening of that solidarity that used to thrive when the country was young. that movement, which was much bigger than just rothchild, was one of the best things happened to israel and it wasnt able to start up again. and what it also showed how little regard the authorities have for the people and that basically they can do what the fuck the want because the israeli people are just too tired. while the prices are just goin up makin it harder and harder to survive. Anyway god bless the rothchild movement may it foster some new leaders and return to us speedily in our days.
8. She cant remember...I wonder why not???

9. #3 - Doesn't a democracy work well with rule of law?
William ,   Israel   (01.07.13)
Or are the new "democrats" above the law and justified in ignoring law, causing bodily harm and disruption to the rest of the populace? If I were a citizen of Tel Aviv, even as a supporter of the cause, I would want a peaceful protest and one with the permission for the gathering. Your idea of "democracy" is akin to an anarchist WTO outburst and THAT I am not supportive of. What's the matter - afraid that Leef's agenda would again fall apart if her movement, like every other movement, adhered to the same rules of law and engagement? Infact it would seem that those who demand social justice consider themselves above the rest of the country, which is a very UNJUST perception to have. Wouldn't you agree?
10. Right wing remembers her now for political gains.
Michael ,   California, USA   (01.07.13)
When something that happened seven months earlier is widely publicized two weeks before a national election, it is a premeditated political act, certainly. The Left - Center is gaining power and it scares Likudniks, so elements on the Right are bringing out the well known monkey wrenches to affect the electorate. Dafnee Leek will prevail in court and I will be part of the large group of people who will contribute to her legal defense fund. The shift to the Center and away from the Right is unstoppable.
11. #2, You will help her with your money, everybody knows that.
Michael ,   California, USA   (01.07.13)
She will fight it in court until she wins, even if it takes ten years. Go ahead, join me in contributing to her legal defense fund. You see, we are bot infatuated, with you irreversibly so.
12. #10, Michael, please share with the rest of us

whatever it is you are smoking, and some pitchers of that Kool Aid you keep in your fridge.
13. #3 Only the left are terrified of democracy
Jake   (01.07.13)
Left wing parties are desperate to brand themselves as "centrists" just to avoid being pummelled in the elections.
14. Michael from California
Robert Haymond ,   Israel-Gush Etzion   (01.07.13)
You really appear to have no idea what is happening here in Israel and which way the strong wind is blowing. This is understandable given that you reside in California and are divorced from Israeli politics and culture but your lack of humility in the face of your ignorance indicates that you are a blowhard and certainly not a voice to be taken in earnest.

The government has nothing to do with the fact this indictment is coming now its the legal system. Its not government who file charges for offences like this, the only reason its being publicised two weeks before the election because its only coming to court now. I imagine Bibi would also prefer this story isn't published so close to an election because because it draws attention to the left and he wants people to be listening to his message.
16. #14, A different "strong wind" from then rest of IL
Michael ,   California, USA   (01.07.13)
Enjoy it at the Gush Etzion while you must, as a guest of course. But you should know that you are stealing from the tables of the poor within Israel proper. This is one of the reasons Daphnee Leek and her friends were protesting, to stop you from hurting the rest of the country.
18. #16, Clearly you have no clue what you are talking about
Jake   (01.08.13)
The people of Gush Etzion and other Jewish settlement blocs shoulder the burden borne by Israeli soceity at large. They pay their taxes, they serve in the army, and have contributed out of proportion to their numbers in combat positions and in battlefield casualties. Moreoever, in all final status scenarios envisioned by all Israeli governments, left, right, and center, Gush Etzion and the other settlement blocs are within the boundaries of the State of Israel. Not to mention the fact that Gush Etzion was a Jewish settlement bloc that existed before the founding of the State, temporarily abandoned in the aftermath of a horrific and bloody Arab massacre in 1948.
