1. The weather report indicates that a hurricane is coming to
Moshe ,   Usa   (01.11.13)
that area. All demonstrating arobs will be swept away with the Israeli Jews who allowed the arobs to amass their. However, the tents will remain intact.
2. I swear to god Israel
Sol ,   America   (01.11.13)
Don't you dare knock down that village. This is the greatest example of non violent protest I have seen out of Palestine. It must not be discouraged!
3. Trespassers
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.11.13)
These so-called "peaceful" (yeah, right) activists are trespassing on land which has been appropriated for fully legal construction. The trespassers should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Foreign meddlers should be fined, deported and banned from ever entering Israel again. You have to nip this nonsense in the bud. Enough dithering! A couple of dead broke countries "summon" Israeli ambassadors to express their "displeasure?" The Israeli response should have been "Sorry, the Ambassador has certain appointments that cannot be rescheduled which will keep him quite busy; we'll give you a call in a week or so, as soon as his schedule permits." And then the ambassador must take great care to be seen lunching by himself for the next several days, and taking an afternoon or two to play several rounds of golf. That would have telegraphed the disdain. The longer Israel delays, the worse things will become and the more emboldened the ersatz "Palestinian" terrorists and thugs will become. Then, you'll have your intifada. Which Israel will suppress, of course, but an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure ....
4. They'll loose interest in time...
David ,   Rishon Lezion IL   (01.11.13)
Bulldoze a trench through the access roads and erect a "protective" fence around them. Add a few cell phone jammers and after another month of Winter, limited supplies and no communications, they'l leave. Dissallow any journalists too. They are just waiting for Israel to forcibly remove them, don't give the the publicity they want.
5. Stealing Jewish Land is crime! There is no "Palistine"!
Chaim Shapiro ,   USA, Orlando   (01.11.13)
Remove the scoundrels!
6. Sol, protest has a purpose
Maor ,   Germany   (01.11.13)
and this can be just or unjust. A non-violent protest is surely better than a violent one, but that doesn't mean that the protest is just and that its goals should be supported. The Palestinians should only protest for one thing - protest against their governments - PLO and Hamas, to stop ruining their chances to be independent and negotiate with Israel.
7. Build the Jewish neighborhood NOW !!
Don'tDelay!!!!!!!! ,   Jerusalem Israel   (01.11.13)
Don't allow Jerusalem and the Jews of the suburbs to be cut off build and build fast !!!!
8. THROW THEM OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (01.11.13)
9. Bibi as Prime Minister
Keren ,   IL-BR   (01.11.13)
I hope Netanyahu, if re-elected, to do justice to Jewish history in the land of Israel once and for all and be done with this bla bla bla once and forever. That´s why he is prime minister in Israel.
10. #2 "Sol" Get it straight this is the Jewish homelan, 3000 d
hippocrates ,   earth   (01.11.13)
yr old capital of the Jews, Jerusalem
11. I am laughing my butt off
Sol ,   Champaign   (01.11.13)
According to international law, publicly-owned areas in the West Bank also belong to the Palestinian population that resides within them. The West Bank was never annexed to Israel's sovereign territory (such a unilateral annexation would be illegal); it is under Israeli military rule. Military rule means that the state holds the territory only as a trustee. YOU CAN'T STOP IT! HAAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA OH GOD FINALLY THEY WISE UP AND DO THIS RIGHT!
Sol ,   Champaign   (01.11.13)
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (01.11.13)
14. To #2 Sol!!!
Taz Man ,   USA   (01.11.13)
Don't be naive: this so-called peaceful protest has a violent end (wanted) to its means prepared! Anything to make Israel look bad in the sight of world opinion. It's gullible clowns', like you, who only embolden this terrorists to take such desperate measures. It won't work! All you and others' have done is guarantee the destruction of the fake Palestinian entity. We thank you for that! Read Genesis 12:1-3; that should clarify your position, as it relates to Israel...and, THEIR land!
15. Who provided the state of the art tents ??
NiceEUTents??!! ,   Jerusalem Israel   (01.11.13)
Did anyone notice the tents are far from makeshift and the people in the pictures are obviously local Beduins someone or more likely some well founded organization has provided the state of the art tents ,,,,lets hope they are revealed .
16. Hypocrite
Mike B ,   London   (01.11.13)
Every square inch of land in North, Central and South America is stolen. The Native Americans of the USA were there 10,000 years ago.
17. Questions to be answered
Mike B ,   London   (01.11.13)
Who supplied/paid for those military quality tents and how did they get there?
18. meh
dan ,   dc   (01.11.13)
The best response is to set up a jewish outpost. Then...evict both groups simultaneously when building the actual settlement. Since this is really a publicity stunt, the world opinion will be confused when Israel evicts both Jews and Arabs. They won't know whether to be happy or sad. Alternatively import some haredim and put them next to the outpost in their ownt outpost. Since they have the highest population growthof any group, in a few years the place will be crawling with children.
19. Tents, Caravans and Temp Buildings: That's a Settlement
emanon ,   USA   (01.11.13)
arabs have always been nomads. They do not build anything permanent. That is just another difference: Jews build cities and engage in urban expansion with buildings designed to stay around, just like Israel and the Jews; neither is going anywhere anytime soon.
20. "we will not resort to any kind of violence"
emanon ,   USA   (01.11.13)
Not to put too fine a point on it, IT IS A LIE!!!
21. Hamasville???
ilan ,   Ramat Gan, Israel   (01.11.13)
They actually wrote that on the tent behind them! look!
22. Is this not blatant provocation ?
Lenya ,   Australia   (01.11.13)
Israel stated that they will be building homes in E1 and the world was in an uproar calling it a provocation and threat to peace...So what do they call this actual building from the "Palestinians" ? Isn't this a blatant provocation of the peace process....why are the hypocrites silent ?
23. they're actually doing Bibi a favor.
he doesn't really want to build there, fearing the 'wrath' of the EU and US, now he has a perfect excuse to back out of his words. good going, Palestinians.
24. Who provided the tents?
Eli ,   Jerusalem   (01.11.13)
Those are not ordinary tents, we need to expose the traitors who spend big money for the destruction of the Jewish state. Send in the bulldozers now.
25. You extremists are so scared of this non-violent resistance
Rachel Rabin ,   TA, Israel   (01.11.13)
I'm just amazed. It just shows how you're standing on shallow on Wong grounds. The Palestinians case is just. We must have two DEMOCRATIC states for two people, living in peace and security.
26. To: No. 11
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.11.13)
According to international law, non-sovereign land belongs to the country who won the war. That would be Israel, and since it happened to be a defensive war, Israel's claim is irrefutable. By the way -- Israel has every right to settle, retain and annex the land. Moreover, the ersatz "Palestinians" living in the West Bank are Jordanian citizens. They have no claim at all. Still laughing? Didn't think so.
27. "conquered Palestinian land?"
mira ,   nyc   (01.11.13)
Ummm, don't you mean, "conquered Jordanian land."
28. Palestinians are the rightful land owners. The world views
Bill   (01.11.13)
the Jews as invaders, squatters and occupiers.
29. These tents will be gone in 2 weeks.
Jake ,   USA   (01.11.13)
This little stunt will be added to the long list of epic failures by the Arab/Leftist enemy.
30. Like the ISraeli government does with every so called
A ,   Belgium   (01.11.13)
"illegal" Jewish settlement...knock the damn thing down!
