1. New slogan for Islamic women
Mario   (02.05.13)
"If you're an Arab, Persian or Turka, before you go out you must don a Burqa"
2. It coiuld be worse!
Mark ,   London, UK   (02.05.13)
Hamas might discover from their friends in Afghanistan and Pakistan that female education is forbidden in Islam.
3. Purim is early this year - esp. for Gazans
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (02.05.13)
4. It would appear that ...
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.05.13)
... "reconciliation" among the various ersatz "Palestinian" factions isn't going all that well, eh?
5. Hamas want women only in Bedroom and Kitchen
Alan ,   SA   (02.05.13)
6. Coalition for Knesset
Eli ,   Brooklyn, NY   (02.05.13)
Maybe the Haredi/Shas can form a coalition with Hamas. Think about it: they both hate the IDF The majority of their supporters are unemployed They both hate women
7. What, even Christian and Jewish students?
Orly ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (02.05.13)
It'll be a cold day in hell when they get Jewish university-aged girls to go around in burkas.
8. barefoot & pregnant....the Muslim ideal in the digital age
Cameron ,   USA   (02.05.13)
9. Hamas the New/Old Taliban
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (02.05.13)
Hamas is not much different from the Taliban and many Gazans miss the good old days when Israel controlled the strip. I have heard Gazans saying this and they miss the freedoms they once enjoyed under Israel and later the PA. Now those freedoms are gone and the Gazans live in fear of their Hamas jailers.
10. From sea to sea ?
Get Real ,   UK   (02.05.13)
Yesterday it was river to sea, Today sea to sea. Tomorrow ocean to ocean? Will all this militarism be in new textbooks for the US State Dept to research?
11. Your talkback sounds like nonsense.
chava ,   yerushalayim   (02.05.13)
I'm sorry to hear the hate in your talkback towards Hareidim. First, you can't put all Hareidim into one box together. Believe it or not, different Hareidim believe differently and act differently. There are many Hareidim in the IDF, and more are joining each year. I don't have figures for how many are learning rather than in the workplace and I doubt if you do, either, but keep in mind that in many families where the man is learning, the woman is working. There are many programs teaching Hareidim skills in order to move into the workplace. And there are many Hareidim who are actively searching for jobs. Hareidim certainly don't hate women. Women are highly respected in the Hareidi world.
12. #9
Get Real ,   UK   (02.05.13)
On reading the article I was thinking along similar lines as post #9 and was wondering that since Israel's withdrawal from Gaza what had the PA and Hamas really achieved,apart from war, on behalf of its citizens.Religious edicts and University courses geared towards militarism is all that seems to show.
13. "Palestinian" civil war approaching
A ,   Belgium   (02.05.13)
Israel, please, step back and let them do what they do best.
