1. Let me get this straight...
Ferdinand ,   Israel & France   (02.04.13)
A terrible civil war is going on in Syria. Tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, have been killed, cities and villages have been destroyed, people's homes have been burned and about a million Syrians have become refugies. Then Israel destroys a few missiles - and THAT should lead to a boycot??!?? Talk about a sense of perspectives.
2. pesky turkies
Bung ,   Detroit USA   (02.04.13)
One wonders what would happen should there be a gobble gobble sound emitting from Turkey, meaning let's try and attack Israel. I have an idea, that Jerusalem would take the drumsticks (legs) others from the same area would want the wings, others breastmeat etc. It would be more comical, if Israel kicked Syria and Russia in the pants and humiliated them both. I'd say Israel would be enjoying Russian roast beef and Syrian lamb chops!!! :-D
4. When will Israel realize?
Human Being ,   Berkeley   (02.04.13)
Israel/Zionism is NOT welcome in the Middle East. How long is it going to take to realize this? Arabs will NEVER accept Israel. Go back to Poland, Russia, Yemen, the US, Argentina, etc.
5. I bet the UN will meet right away to condemn Israel when..
David Masada ,   Montreal, Canada   (02.04.13)
the war starts. Because there will be a war, cannot be avoided anymore. The arab world is disgusting!
6. Yeah, Israel shoulda let Hezbollah
Stephen in New York   (02.04.13)
bring in the SA-17s to protect its rocket launching crews. And, of course, not allowing in chemical weapons shows that Israel is a racist state.
7. Wah!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.04.13)
Mommy, somebody flew into our air space. Boo, hoo, hoo -- what should we do? What Lebanon should do is just shut up. They don't control their air space -- Israel does. Lebanon cannot even control its own country, and you expect them to have a right to say anything? The whole of the southern part of Lebanon has been taken over by a terrorist organization committed to the destruction of the State of Israel and the extermination of the Jews. Well, we take that seriously. Lebanese air space is Israel's air space. If they don't like it, perhaps they can dispose of the terrorist rabble that seems to control Lebanon. Unless and until -- Israel is not going to stop. Don't like it? Cry me a river. We'll name that river the Litani, and that will be Israel's new northern border unless the Lebanese can man up.
8. So the Arabs are going to boycott Israel?
William ,   Israel   (02.04.13)
How will we survive??? Oh, right....just about the same as we did since 1948.
9. Other Arab media reports...
William ,   Israel   (02.04.13)
claim Assad hastily placed burnt out SA-8s at the scene of the Israeli bombing to cover up the fact that they sent SA-17s to Lebanon, so as not to anger Russia.
10. Photo of destroyed SA-8, not SA-17, Syria is baiting Israel
Steven Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (02.04.13)
11. Destroy Hizbollah
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (02.04.13)
If there is to be peace in the region it must start with the destruction of Hizbollah terrorist.
12. How Is Bombing In Syria "Aggression Against Lebanon"?
Ron ,   Seattle USA   (02.04.13)
13. Boycott, Schmoicott
ltrail ,   United States   (02.04.13)
The Lebanese FM, Mansour, said: "Israel deserves harsh responses and a tough boycott on the economic, political and diplomatic levels." I'm so concerned, that I went out and purchased several more bottles of Israeli wine, to enjoy. Instead of standing up against Israel, I'll sit down and enjoy the blessing from their land; from Samaria and Judea.
14. the HATRED for israel is greater than for assad
galut ia ,   selah   (02.04.13)
Israel only has to burp to raise the ire of Islamist ... but in the mind of an islamist Assad is a saint compared to israel even if he kills half of his population .....
15. #1 Don't be confused, Ferdinand
Mark ,   London, UK   (02.04.13)
Adnan Mansour is a member of the Shiite Amal Movement ("of the Dispossessed") allied with Hezbollah. If you are Israeli and embarrassed by Lieberman, think what the poor Lebanese have to put up with!
16. Arab call to boycott
philimax ,   NYC   (02.04.13)
to #1 -That's it. You summed it up as accurately as it gets.
17. #4
Chimo ,   Las Vegas USA   (02.04.13)
As if Israel or Zionism gives a rats a$$ as to whether Islamic countries or morons like yourself accept Israel or the jews in the middle east!!! We don't care whether dolts like you accept our country or not, we are there to stay, and you can take your hatred and animosity and stick it far up your abdominal orofice
18. # 4
Jules   (02.04.13)
Why do you think that the Israelis should care: what the Arabs wish ?
19. To: No. 4
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.04.13)
Well, tough. We were there a long, long time before they were, and we are simply reclaiming our homeland. Arabs come from Arabia (duh!). So, tell me -- which native American tribe did YOU displace, you pathetic hypocrite? Why don't you set an example by giving up YOUR home? Please tell me when you plan to do that. I'd LOVE to watch.
20. What do you expect to happen if we return there?!?
hanna ,   israel   (02.04.13)
Do you think they will accept us happily?!?They will be care about us if Anti-Semitics will hust us?!?Look what happend in Toulouse!!!Because cases like this we have state!!!State that protect us,damn you!!!
21. To #4
graczek ,   Maryland, USA   (02.04.13)
You have stated it more clearly and succinctly that I could. I do want to add one more point, however: Israel/Zionism is not welcome in the whole world and must soon be vanquished. Indeed, this is foreordained.
22.  hezbullah killed 41 reporters in lebanon last year
Tripster ,   la paz,Bolivia   (02.04.13)
wheres the Foreign minster Now? Hezbullah has run Lebanon as a private fiefdom since the late 90"s,the Foreign Minister can't even run his own country.
23. #21 - "This is fore-ordained"
William ,   Israel   (02.04.13)
By whom exactly? Because Zionism and the birth of Israel has been fore-ordained by Judaism, Christianity, AND Islam already.
24. #22 Tripster
"Hezbollah killed 41 reporters in Lebanon last year..." Present your sources or shut up...
25. graczek the Polish Jew Hater
Without the Jewish Nation, Christianity & Islam would not be in the world. Both of you must thanks the Jews.
26. graczek Maryland 21
Yes it is true the world hates the Jewish Nation out of JEALOUSY. Jews are smart, intelligent, business people, clever, and you are an idiot probably drunk
27. Ungrateful Lebanon
Get Real ,   UK   (02.05.13)
Lebanon's FM comments are truly pathetic, he should just remember that as his country includes Hezbollah in its government and allows the terror group to be armed and based in Lebanon his country places itself at great risk. He should be grateful to Israel for eliminating some weapons before they reach Lebanon, as this will lessen the damage Lebanon can expect in any new round of hostiities.
