1. I sign under every word you said, Ricardo.

2. Finally some real morals
Ilana   (02.28.13)
I am so sick of the Eu and all their lies and distortions. They fund a murderous group of terrorists that cherish death and abuse. Thank you for being a sane voice in the insane world!
3. What do you expect from a culture of death?!!!
Jake Stone ,   USA   (02.28.13)
Islam is the foundation of this cultic fanaticism! It's very tenets are evil to the core--period! I'm tired of those trying to white-wash the truth about this evil religion. Again, political correctness rears its ugly head!!!
4. Only Jews are allowed to have Holocaust industry, not Arabs
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (02.28.13)
5. "Palestinians" are genocidal enemies like the Nazis were.
Chaim ,   Israel   (02.28.13)
The fact stares us in the face every day but too many of us are blind to the obvious truth. "Palestinians" want to mass murder us all and steal our sole tiny Homeland. Nor do they even try to hide it. Their covenants are full of it. Their media is full of it. Their leaders shout it every day. Israel must wake up to the clear truth. Israel must stop playing games, totally defeat "Palestinians" and get them out of our land forever.
6. All religions are the same
Stan ,   Israel   (02.28.13)
Read up about the Crusaders. On their way to Jerusalem, they "practised" their art of killing on their Eastern Orthodox cousins in Constantinople. When they captured Jerusalem, they slaughtered the Jews and Muslems "whose blood ran knee deep in the streets." This continued through the centuries. Always "with the blessing of Christ" The Spaniards in South America. The Americans against the Indians. The English, French, Germans and other Europeans with one another and against one another
7. A pleasure hearing such cogent truths from France!!
Carl ,   USA   (02.28.13)
8. Be Israel's first precondition
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (02.28.13)
to renew peace negotiations, to change all public places and institutions' name which are currently wearing murderes and terrorists' name.
9. appropriate solution.
DavidR ,   USA   (02.28.13)
With a name like "Arafat" Israel should burn his bones in Kidron Valley and then sprinkle the ashes over gaza.
10. You are never ashamed, are you?
Abou Fayez ,   Brussels   (02.28.13)
In this piece, several (usual Israeli) lies are spread as hard facts. Some examples. ‘The cause of Arafat Jaradat’s death are still dubious’!? Really? A young man of 30, in perfect health, dies in prison few days after his arrest by a brutal army: was it heart attack, may be? Or suicide? The Israeli Occupation army gives death, and instead of understanding their pain, you accuse the young man’s family of glorifying it! ‘Illegal actions’! This is the word for resistance against occupation. ‘Victimization’ is exactly what Israel and the world Jewry still do ever since the 2nd World War, trying to cover Israel’s crimes in Palestine. Israelis can never accept that another people is a victim and mainly so if Israel is the cause. ‘Peace not priority’ for the Palestinian Authority: I defy you, and all your likes, to find me one single word about peace with the Palestinians in the last Israeli elections, last January. All Israeli leaders agree that peace with the Palestinians is not their priority. ‘Worst terrorist campaign’: not one single Israeli was killed in the Occupied territories in 2012, due to resistance by the Palestinians. This allegation is pure invention. Etc., etc. I suggest that you watch the ‘Gatekeepers’: that will refresh your amnesia, .
11. #6. You are correct indeed, but
A ,   Belgium   (02.28.13)
against who did the Jews ever practise genocide on a mass scale? I don't agree with any religion, but it is obvious that not all religions are the same, and your generalization is wrong.
12. So
you want Palestinians to stop glorifying their dead? Well, then stop killing them. Duh.
13. jaradad
rm ,   Amsterdam NL   (03.01.13)
mr Jaradad may have been involved in some 'broadly defined' anti-Israeli action which may have warranted questioning but he was hardly a viscious dangerous terrorist. Yet for some reason he was treated harshly and died in unclear circumstances. At the worst possible time when all signs are pointing to a new uprising. Yet by all means blame the palestinians. Blame Jaradad...blame anti-semitism...blame everybody...except yourself or your secret service people. They always seem to come out smelling of roses
14. Ahem, #11, I would remind you of the fate of the Canaanites
Cameron ,   USA   (03.01.13)
15. To: No. 14
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.01.13)
Most of them intermarried with Hebrews. Your point? Care to address the fate of the Saxons? The Picts? The Druids? You're throwing stones in that glass house of yours again. Be careful.
16. To: No. 12
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.01.13)
What sane person glorifies a dead terrorist? Besides, every effort was made to revive that piece of terrorist scum. Me, personally? I wouldn't have bothered. Jaradat is exactly where he belongs -- six feet under.

Go outside and play with ALICE,she wants to take you to wonderland.
18. Dugulin's article.
Luiz F Haddad ,   Niteroi, Brazil   (03.01.13)
Riccardo Dugulin is right. Unhappily, Arab Palestine's leaders act against their own people. Instead of talking seriously with Israel, on the scope of a honoured and permanent peace, they insist on antagonizing the neighbor. While it does not cease, Israelian brothers and sisters, be strong and firm.
19. "Palestinian" terrorists should be executed withint 48 hrs.
Chaim ,   Israel   (03.01.13)
All captured "Palestinian" terrorists should be executed within 48 hours of capture. Take enough time to propertly interrogate them to catch other terrorists and prevent atrocities. Than execute them all.
20. #4 Benassi
BEN JABO (MACVHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (03.01.13)
Jews didn't send their people out to get killed, Arabs send theirs out to draw attention BTW- Since your claim that Palestine is yours, how about showing me where it's mentioned at least one time in your Quran ? Ditto for Jerusalem I have asked these questions hundreds of times, not one of your band of theives can come up with the answers, mayble you'll be the first, miracles do happen
21. #14 Cameron -Tell me
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (03.01.13)
what TV station or Newmedia showed the Canaanites meeting their fate ?
22. #10 you're a seer?
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (03.01.13)
How do you know that he was in perfect health? Are you his doctor? Did you examine him? Did you even see him? People die all over the world of heart disease without a single symptom. In fact Arabs have one of the highest rates of heart disease in the entire world. So you moronic claims are just that. Frankly I am glad the bastard is dead and every single terrorist needs to join him. Don't like that - TFB, you are a lying terrorist supporter and that makes you just as bad
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (03.01.13)
Shot on the spot !! No need for trial or prison, his own evidence proves that he is GUILTY
24. Sarah of #15
Cameron ,   USA   (03.01.13)
Well, that's a somewhat flip glossing over of history. A perhaps more accurate historical review might note that when the Jewish tribes rolled in from the sand dunes & seized the towns & lands of the Canaanites under a religious mandate/cover, the few who were not put to the sword were enslaved and assimilated. A historical moment of conquest, and cultural/ethnic erasing. My point is clear enough......y'all have a real tendency to paint yourselves "as pure as the driven snow", but like any other group on the planet, you've had your own moments of real ugly behavior.
25. #24 Hebrew-Canaanite history
Expat ,   Adelaide   (03.01.13)
The Canaanites were no more owners of the land than the Hebrew tribes at the time. Just another fleeting people conquering another fleeting people. The whole damn place has been up for grabs for millenia. Anyways, if you need to summon a nebulous piece of history 3500 years ago, in to order to find "moments of real ugly behavior" among Jews, I'd say you're really, truly, scraping the bottom of the barrel.
26. To 19, Chaim
Luiz F Haddad ,   Niteroi, Brazil   (03.01.13)
What did you say, my brother? Israel is a Democratic and Humanistic country. She is admired and loved for it. The proposed "executions" remember the worst totalitarian systems. But I understand your revolt. Salutes.
27. #26 Luiz. Saving innocents is best form of humanitarianism.
Chaim ,   Israel   (03.02.13)
#26. Thank you again, Luiz, for your obviously heartfelt support of Israel. What could be more humanitarian than saving the innocent by assuring bloodthirsty terrorists can murder no more? And by assuring those predisposed to following in their footsteps, and committing terrorist atrocities, receive a good strong lesson on what awaits them?
28. Dugulin cannot even get the basic facts right
Ben Alofs ,   Bangor, UK   (03.02.13)
His claim that "Jaradat was arrested while engaging in life threatening actions against Israeli defense forces" is completely inaccurate. Arafat Jaradat was suspected of the relatively minor offense of throwing stones during the course of Operation Pillar of Defense, in November last year. He was taken from his home in the middle of the night MONTHS AFTER he committed the offense. He went straight to a Shin Bet security service interrogation facility at Jalameh, was held there for six days and ended up dead, a healthy young man of 30 years old, who never had any previous health problems. Dugulin sees Palestinians "celebrate" the death of Jaradat, whilst everyone else can see that the people (amongst them Israelis) gathered en masse to MOURN the violent death of a young Palestinian. This is yet another case of a Palestinian Steve Biko tortured to death in a Zionist jail. Dugulin's distortions and denials are unworthy of the name journalism. They are nothing more than cheap hasbara. It is the only thing Dugulin deserves a masters degree in.
29. 13
how do you know he was treated badly? because the palestinians said so???? innocent until proven guilty, sir! and i am sure that if israel treated all security prisoners like you assume, wouldn't there be hundreds of them dead by now??? there are cases of very young people, like athletes and others that suffer massive heart attacks when young. look at osme high school teenagers that dropped dead because they had a heart failure that was never noticed or diagnosed. look at some athletes that dropped dead in the usa because their heart problems were silent and therefore undiagnosed. for you to be "convinced" that israel killed him is not only unethical and immoral, but a downright lie and pure speculation on your party.
30. # 19 YES!
