1. This is why Meretz and Arab parties are in opposition
Rachel ,   US   (02.13.13)
2. Yes, unfortunately they still are
Whack ,   Germany   (02.13.13)
but I suppose if the Mc Carthys and posterboys of democracy from Likud, Israel Beiteinu and Shas are continuing like this, it won´t be for much longer.
3. # 1, it is not about left or right.
Beauchard   (02.13.13)
What Ms Regev is saying is that the security authorities are omnipotent, they never make a mistake. Because of this they never have to be investigated and have to answer to no-one. They are above the law, even if an ex(?)- agent dies in custody. In other words: they can do what they like. So Ms Rachel this case is not about political affiliation. It is about if you think that the death of an Israeli citizen in Israeli custody should or should not be kept secret because it might embarrass some authorities.
4. Why is Gal-On complaining
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (02.13.13)
Gal-On knows that the government (any government) is entitled to keep secrets relating to national security. But, Gal-On is an MK. If she wanted, she had full immunity to pursue this matter and publish her findings. There was absolutely nothing the government, police or courts could have done to prevent it. Reading this article, one can only conclude one of two things: Gal-On knew about the matter, investigated, and kept silent for Israeli security or Gal-On heard about it, but could not care enough to investigate. The question is only why does she now try to politically profit from this story? Is it because the "Arab Spring" has proven that Meretz is not only irrelevant, but dangerous?
5. Tibi turned into a cheap clown, and Gal-on became indistinct
a_hinnathan   (02.13.13)
indistinctable from him. I windered why started the buzz about a single suicide committed in the jail, but I should have immediately got a clue from the visage of Gal-on and Zibi standing on the rear paws. Jews voting for Meretz are all sick of Stockholm syndrom.
6. The truth is always best.
A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (02.13.13)
Regev is wrong. The info was already in the public domain. It had been on TV in Australia, for crying out loud. Anyone here remember the Yom Kippur War? Time magazine published news unpalatable to us here at home. The whole world knew before we did. We were in serious trouble and denied the info, until Golda Meir went on the radio and told us with the truth! It's about time that we were told the truth even when it is uncomfortable!
7. #1
Law   (02.13.13)
They should not stay there.They should be expelled from the country to Lebanon.Traitors derseves thie treatment.
8. Dangerous
michael Pielet ,   israel   (02.13.13)
Gal On is a irresponsible incompetent that should be tried for treason. If found guilty, capital punishment is appropriate.
9. All a big secret!
Ros ,   Tel Aviv   (02.13.13)
Why is it being "uncovered" now. He died in 2010 - why now?
10. She had no such companctions about Altalena.
Miron ,   USA   (02.13.13)
As long as silencing does not lower her pension fund and equity ( price of house )
11. I guess you can find an excuse for
Paul ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (02.13.13)
every sick and repulsive act, turning it into an act of Holy proportions. The Left brainers are maimed at the core.
12. One point of clairification:
Robert   (02.13.13)
israel is NOT a democracy. It is theocracy for jews only.
13. MK's immunity should be lifted and they should be prosecuted
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (02.13.13)
there are many people who are absolutely intent on harming israel's national security. some of these people are very powerful foreigners, including world leaders; and some of these are nominally israelis who are willing collaborators.
14. Meretz uses anything to get noticed pathetic
PatheticPeople ,   Jerusalem Israel   (02.13.13)
15. M.K. Gal On to trial for treason.
Chaim ,   Israel   (02.13.13)
Enough is enough! We can't allow MKs to compromise Israel's security. M.K. Gal On to trial for treason.
16. Anything that weakens Israel strengtens Gal-On and Tibi
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (02.15.13)
In most nations their acts are considered treason.
