...from adjoining prison cells.
2. Palestinian- Israeli conflict cannot be solved FOR NOW
Sam ,   Canada   (03.18.13)
Things may change in the future. What appears to be major problems now may be trivial later.
3. Liberman, I agree!
Israeli ,   Haifa   (03.18.13)
Build! Build! Build!
4. Mr Lieberman Another Contention
That Won't Change Is Jerusalem It Will NEVER BE DIVIDED! The onus is on the arabs! abu mazen Should hold elections Due To His Term HAS BEEN OVER years ago!
5. Lieberman is right
Brod ,   USA   (03.18.13)
Lieberman is absolutely right on the subject. Islamist-Jihadists are crusading Jihadism throughout the world. They want to dominate, subdue and islamize the whole non-Islamist world. It is time for the West to put a stop to Islamist-Jihadism. Israel is right to put a stop to this monster that has been terrorizing the region since they emerged from the Arabian Desert in the 7th century. Eight hundred years ago when Marco Polo visited the Holy Land on his way back to Europe from China, he wrote about Islamist-Jihadists terrorizing the non-Islamist people in the region.

i wish you will return again to the foreign ministry, you are a voice of reason and brilliant, i am sure that you will be able to prove your innocence, you and Elkin will do great job to promote for Israel abroad, it is the first time that Israel will have both foreign and defense ministries are nationalist !!!! shalom
7. It is simple: If the PLO wants peace, they should come to...
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (03.18.13)
...the table and begin to talk peace. To date, only Israel has made gestures of good will, and received only intensified form of terrorism in return. It is time the PLO made gestures of good will, e.g. recognize Israel's right to exist as the sovereign nation-state of the Jewish people, but ought not expect any more gestures from Israel. Let us talk: Peace-for-Peace, Now!!

9. Demand UNLIMITED Judea and Samaria building.
Chaim ,   Israel   (03.18.13)
Jews are the rightful owners of Judea and Samaria and its way past time to start acting like it and stop playing stupid destructive games. Demand UNLIMITED Jewish building throughout all of Judea and Samaria.
10. Gotta love this guy !!
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (03.18.13)
He's 120% correct. No two states, no freeze on building in fact, the opposite, BUILD BABY BUILD !!!!!
11. Will you be there as well?
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (03.18.13)
Liberman's the man, LOVE THIS GUY!!!!
12. Couldnt he have just kept his mouth shut for a little longer
Avster ,   Tel Aviv   (03.18.13)
Why does this man even have the right to speak in public? its enough that Bibi is baby sitting his seat for him while he faces corruption charges. Couldnt he have kept his mouth shut for a little longer? There is no room for a tyrant and wanna be dictator such as Lieberman is the Israeli DEMOCRATIC sphere.
13. Judea Samaria will do,enough with your bank !
trump   (03.18.13)
More than 500.000 Israelis are living there They pay taxes,do the army and work hard They deserve at least as much respect as your beloved leftists !
14. absolutely
k   (03.18.13)
build over the whole Judea & Samaria
15. A B C
A ,   Belgium   (03.18.13)
Annex Build Continue and than the two state solution: Jewish Israel on the West Bank of the Jordan River, Arab Jordan/"Palestine" on the East Side. It CAN and MUST be done if there is ever to be peace!
16. Russian doesn't think we should negotiate?
Mark Wiseman ,   Cleveland USA   (03.18.13)
So this Russian born Israeli thinks there is no point in negotiating with people who have been living on the land for the past few hundred years. That attitude is arrogant and short-sighted. Him being the foreign minister was a joke. Only solution left for Arabs is war.
17. I'll always respect Lieberman for his honesty!
Gunnar ,   Gothenburg, Sweden   (03.18.13)
Unlike Netanyahu, who thinks and behaves exactly the same, but keeps believing that his smooth talk of "I sincerely want peace" will do the trick.
18. His own words explain why ...
Ed ,   USA   (03.18.13)
Ya gotta love it. No progress in the last four years. NO KIDDING. What buffoon was the foreign minister? He's right. Until he and Bibi are no longer in the govt peace is not possible. Here's to early elections!
19. No military man . Plain logic.It is not possible
olim hadashim ,   tel aviv/israel   (03.18.13)
to survive without Judea and Samaria.
20. to#16....You are so right!
exUK ,   Tel Aviv   (03.18.13)
Firstly,in no other country would there be a situation in which a politician is accused of corruption and fraud,but continues to be in government,AND has his seat kept open for him,whilst it drags on and on.Yes,you are innocent until proven guilty,but the law should know whether or not there is enough evidence to prosecute,BEFORE making it public.It should then be sub judice,and not allowed to be commented on in the papers until a trial and verdict.(But only in Israel!...) Secondly,whatever you decide to name Arabs who have lived there for hundreds of years,they HAVE lived there for centuries..So ask Lieberman what he would do in their position,realistically.Our settlers did have somewhere to live but they chose to come here,from USA UK etc encouraged by past governments in Israel with subsidized housing and other incentives.Calling the land"disputed not occupied "doesn't solve anything.And if Israel ignores every other opinion from the UN,(which gave us Israel) to our allies and others,and if we refuse to negotiate,oppressing the Arabs and just doing as we please,perhaps our "build build build'buddys wish to tell us what the solution is.If the settlers were responsible for their own welfare financially and militarily,instead of relying on our IDF and the USA finances,they may at least give it some serious thought.
21. #16
Lazerbenabba43 ,   London, England   (03.18.13)
Lieberman made this statement due to the simple and obvious fact that the Palestinians on innumerable occasions were given the opportunity to negotiate on a sensible basis with very real benefits for them, they chose to demand impossible elements that would jeopardise the very fabric of Israel. Then and only then did Lieberman as with the majority of Israelis then realise that negotiation was an exercise in futility. Do you want a fabrication of negotiation which everyone knows is nothing but smoke and mirrors.
22. So Now I suppose we just sit back and await
exUK ,   TEl Aviv   (03.18.13)
some embarrassing announcement from our right wing extremists timed to cause maximum "distress" and problems for Obama's visit.WATCH THIS SPACE!
23. #16 You ali bazzi Your and arab Poser
So the only thing left is war? Thousands of rockets/missiles later, Never once has a arab Came To The Negotiating Table? The Israeli Government Has Made All The Effort Twords Peace! Mr A.Lieberman Is 100% Right!
24. # 20 exUK the pals have received billions
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (03.18.13)
and you object to the 'settlers' building with approval and dollars from our and your governments?'? Weren't ALL Jews returning to Israel 'settlers'? Personally, I'm thrilled that Lieberman's still in politics as a Jew he makes me proud and yes, I'm also proud to say BUILD BABY BUILD !!! and the UN did not give us Israel. Israel and Judea Samaria and ALL of Jerusalem belonged to Israel under King David. That was over 3,000 years ago as I'm sure you remember. The UN is the most recent signatory to the old prophecy that Israel would be scattered and a remnant would return and she would BUILD ! Shalom.
25. # 2 obama makes his own distress
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (03.18.13)
prior to and continuing with this visit. Everything he touches turns to poo. obama mistakenly thought he might get some better press from the ME than here at home where his favorable rating is dropping like a stone. obama's a disaster.
26. #22. Sacrifice our rights to please Obama? No way!
Chaim ,   Israel   (03.18.13)
#22. Essentially you want Israel to submit to Obama. Pretend we're okay with sacrificing our legal ownership of Judea and Samaria and that a 9 mile waist if perfectly fine! No way! This land is ours and most Israelis are fed up with the sick game.
27. No freeze necessary, UNSC '67 borders and ICC will squeeze..
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (03.18.13)
...Israel like it did with Apartheid South Africa.
28. Israel is NOT a signatory to the ICC
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (03.18.13)
And, So. Africa is still a hell hole.
29. #27. U.N. passes worthless resolutions. Israel gets stronger
Chaim ,   Israel   (03.18.13)
#27. The U.N. has already passed hundreds, if not thousands, of anti-Israel resolutions. Including a particularly odious one equating Zionism with racism. What is the result? Israel gets stronger, richer and more wonderful every year while the U.N. loses credibility every year. It is only a matter of time till the U.N. goes the way of its predecessor - the League of Nations.
30. Freeze #16
yosef ,   usa-israel   (03.18.13)
A Wiseman you aren't. Just an honest victim of incessant Anti-Israeli and Anti-semitic propaganda, based on distortion, ignorance and arm-chair philosophy.
