1. Democracy..... And Israel
In my country, every time communities of minorities are attacked, like spray painting on Jewish graves, the prime minister always stands up against these arsons and shows up publicly with the head of the Jewish communities, telling everyone that the police is doing everything to catch the responsibles of these horrendous acts. This is call democracy. Why in Israel it never happens?
2. Good!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (05.29.13)
It is high time that the terrorist rabble understands that Israel will no longer tolerate their hatred and violence. Measure for measure. If the ersatz "Palestinians" don't like it, they are MORE than free to leave. Amazing, isn't it? Those who are so good at dishing it out go crying for their mommies when it gets served right back at them! Quintessential bullies .... who instantly become cowards when the tables are turned. Did they think that our patience had no limits? Well, it does. Seven decades of unremitting ersatz "Palestinian" terror have been more than enough. The Jewish people have finally decided to respond in kind. And the ersatz "Palestinians" cry wee, wee, wee .... all the way home. Home being the Hejaz in the Western Arabian desert. Good riddance! We've had more than enough of that diseased and primitive lot! Time for the ersatz "Palestinians" to exeunt, stage left. Let them take their whiny perpetual invented victimhood SOMEWHERE ELSE!
3. 1
it does happen in israel, all the time. please understand that the police NEEDS TO INVESTIGATE WHO DID THIS AND CATCH THE PERPETRATORS. we israelis do not agree with such acts. most of us are not zealots and not settlers.
4. #1 - perspective
USA   (05.29.13)
Because in the MiddleEast, Israel is surrounded on all sides by belligerent mostly genocidal Muslims guided by a medieval code of "ethics." Israel is the tiny minority in the ME, on a mere sliver of land, if you look at the forest and not the tree. In the case of national security you look at the forest...
5. To number 1
Shimon ,   Poleg   (05.29.13)
Israel is at a state of war with the Palestinian people who are hell bent on the destruction of Israel so it's possibly a little different to your country where I would imagine the minorities are not trying to destroy your country and killing citizens rocketing and bombing your citizens. That being said these crimes are a disgrace and are condemned and the perpetrators are often caught so I'm not sure exactly your point apart from your clear demonstration of a lack of knowledge of the situation in the Middle East.
6. #1 very simple
Every single time the police actually catch someone red-handed doing these crimes, whether arson, agricultural vandalism or grafitti, they catch an Arab, Leftist or foreign-activist.
7. No proof
Jews did this,but let's make sure to convict the Jews before they are even caught, or given the right to a fair trial. Meanwhile,as usual the dozens of attacks against Jews by the Arabs,which happen every day in Israel are totally ignored.
8. To: No. 1
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (05.29.13)
Which is your country? Because I have the distinct impression that you wouldn't know democracy if you tripped over it. Enlighten us, please. (Don't even think about claiming an English-speaking country. Your English language skills are laughable. So -- where are you from?) Now ... why it never happen? (That was hard for me to write!)
9. "Measure for measure"?
Naftush ,   Israel   (05.29.13)
"Respond in kind"? Really? And if Eviatar's murderer had eliminated 50 people, heaven forbid, should the "Jewish people" have responded with 50 cans of spray paint?
10. To: #2
David Clarke ,   Liverpool   (05.29.13)
Are you so hate filled and dripping with bile towards another race of people that you actually condone these horrendous attacks by extremeists?. If this horrendous act was perpetrated by Arabs against Jews you would rightly scream anti-Semitism so why does the fact that a minority of extremeist Jews perpetrated this vile act against Arabs make this justified in your eyes?. No matter what your views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict these horrendous attacks on innocent people going about their daily lives should be condemed by every sane minded individual, you are clearly filled with hate and should crawl back under your brooklyn hate rock and stay there until you have something productive to say that isn't dripping with racist bile against your fellow Human beings.
11. #7 not ignored
The problem is IDF leadership. Yesterday, Benny Gantz admitted at the Knesset that he is incapable of stopping the Arab attacks (not graffiti, attempted murder) on Jews. Instead of crying at the Knesset, Gantz should have resigned since he admits that he is incapable of doing his job.
12. To No. 2
Bertram ,   London, UK   (05.29.13)
Wow, Sarah! You must be a character from the Wild West. Or maybe you are just nostalgic for the rough and tumble of the school playground (school yard). You know the kind of thing: you hit me, I am going to hit you back! My dad is bigger than your dad! So, there! What, I hear you say? You are a mature, civilised democrat? That's a good one, Sarah! Really funny - the tears are rolling down my cheeks!

benakiva37 ,   Rockville,MD USA   (05.29.13)
I agree!
14. Justified In Judaism
World Citizen ,   the world   (05.29.13)
An eye for an eye. A tooth for a tooth. Revenge is built into the Jewish religion. It justifies everything they do. It defines Jewish culture and the Israeli nation.
15. Precedent has been set
Gideon Reader   (05.29.13)
Move along. Nothing to see here. Just some boisterous "YOUTS". Just like Malmo or Paris, of Oslo. Except no one is dead or maimed. One witless witness clearly heard the call..."Shmulik huAkbar!", befor the "terroristic" words were sprayed. The good part is that the spelling was corerect and the commas were well placed.
16. If Israelis want this to stop, then start by condeming #2
Dan ,   NYC   (05.29.13)
Several Israelis on this thread have condemned these 'price tag' crimes. Yet the only condemnation (thus far) of the racist, vile hate expressed in #2 has come from non-Israelis. If Israelis ever hope to fix their problems, they're going to have to rein in their far-right extremists. This is extremely hard in people's day to day lives where most are focused on making a living and caring for their families; but on the Internet it only takes a minute. Who will be the first Israeli to stand up to the hate of #2? All nations have such far-right rabble, but (almost) all nations also have a thriving political counter to it that keeps it in check (at least most of the time.) Until Israel develops such a counter, people will continue to define Israel by these hate-filled individuals. The choice is yours but know this: Israel is quickly finding itself isolated similar to what happened to Serbia in the 1990s. There is still time (however not much) to change things for the better but it will take courage amongst moral Israelis. A simple start would be to confront such hate on sites like this.
17. I am still waiting for the bloody Muslims("moderate" ones)
tom ,   tel aviv   (05.29.13)
to come out in MILLIONS, beating their chest and apologising for 9/11(to begin with)!! Whatever/wherever is being done to them now, is well earned and far from what they deserve. Stop whining and claiming racism -BS. You are our ENEMY and are being treated as such.
18. #10, 12, 16.
Anna ,   Montreal, Canada   (05.29.13)
Estimated population of Israel in 2013 is about 8.0 million. Eviatar Borovsky was stabbed to death by the Muslim terrorist. Numerous Israelis were hurt by the rock throwers in 30 days. Estimated population of England in 2013 is about 57.0 million. A British soldier has been butchered by the Muslim terrorist in London. Estimated population of France in 2012 is about 65 586 million. A French soldier stabbed in Paris by another Muslim terrorist. How long do you think it will take till the ordinary native citizens of Europe will start to act in response to the terror? Or maybe you will convert all to Islam. Just try to convert to the same sect all Europe, because if not the will another civil war like in Syria, Lebanon Nigeria, Libya, Iraq, Pakistan.
19. #2, who are the terrorists?
elke ,   usa   (05.29.13)
Your vile, hate-filled diatribes don't even have a basis in fact. Number of Israelis killed by fire from Gaza between January 1st 2012 and November 11th 2012: 1 (Source: Wikipedia) Number of Palestinians in Gaza killed by Israeli fire during the same period: 78 (Source: United Nations) Number of Israelis killed by fire from Gaza, November 13th-19th 2012: 3 (Source: press reports) Number of Palestinians in Gaza killed by Israeli fire, November 13th-19th: 95 (Source: IDF) Number of those killed in Gaza under 15 years of age: 19 (Source) Total number of Israelis killed by rocket, mortar or anti-tank fire from Gaza since 2006: 47 (Source: Wikipedia. This is disputed; another source says 26) Number of Palestinians in Gaza killed by Israeli fire from April 1st 2006 to July 21st 2012: 2,879 (Source: United Nations)
20. 2 villages mentined fly Palestinian flags
DangerousTrend ,   Jerusalem Israel   (05.29.13)
the two villages mentioned in the article are located on the main Jordan Valley road in the north just a few miles south of Beth Shean both have recently begun flying large Palestinian flags and there is now occaisional rock throwing all Israelis travelling on that road are becoming increasingly threatened by these villages
21. No18 who said the attacker is Muslim in Paris aggression?

23. #19:Jawohl Elke. Now put aside the (dubious) math and start
tom ,   tel aviv   (05.29.13)
using you head without antisemitic prejudice.
24. No18 who said the attacker is Muslim in Paris aggression?
I'm French and nothing has been proved yet! Do you hold informations we might need for our investigations?
25. #23, I invite you
elke ,   usa   (05.29.13)
to present your own statistics -- with sources -- as I have. Otherwise, you're just another name-caller. Israel doesn't live up to its own standards, as announced in the declaration of independence: "(Israel) will foster the development of the country for the benefit of all its inhabitants; it will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel; it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; it will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture; it will safeguard the Holy Places of all religions; and it will be faithful to the principles of the Charter of the United Nations."
