1. Praying is NOT enough.
Chaim ,   Israel   (10.04.13)
Every good Jew, Israeli patriot and friend of Israel needs unite and forcefully reject the evil "peace talks" and demand their immediate end. These monstrous talks are intended to steal Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria from Israel and turn Israel into a 9 mile wide concentration camp.
2. These rabbis are a bunch of nutters.
Mendoza ,   Tel-Aviv, Israel   (10.04.13)
Who wants to live in an apartheid state .
3. Insane
Shlomo ,   California   (10.04.13)
These guys are enemies of Zionism.
4. Why don't they demand from Bait Yehudi to leave the Gov't
Nachman   (10.04.13)
Or next election all the settlers will find another party to vote for.
5. "The wholeness of the land."
Avi ,   NYC, USA   (10.05.13)
With the help of the settlers and nutty spiritual leaders this land will indeed be whole. in 20 years: One Palestine between the river and the sea.
6. Some religion!
Suzy ,   NYC   (10.05.13)
In US Rabbis write a letter to urge Obama to go to strike Syria, in Israel they prey against peace. Some religion you folks have.
7. If a rabbi had minimal brains and education ...
Michael ,   California, USA   (10.05.13)
They wouldn't think nor pray like that. Peaceful coexistence is what the modern world of 7 billion people needs. Rabbis in Israel are marching in a direction that the rest of the world disapproves of. They give potent material to anti-Semites of all kinds to build upon. I am disgusted.
8. #7. If leftists had minimal brains...
Chaim ,   Israel   (10.05.13)
They'd have the intelligence to read a map and know, as any literate school child knows, that the Two State Final Solution is fatal for Israel. If leftists had minimal brains, they wouldn't have advocated Israel cede e The Golan just six months ago!!! If leftists had minimal brains, they wouldn't have been wrong about every single major issue since Israel was founded, as they have been.
9. #8, For one brainy rav I can show you 1000 leftist geniuses.
Michael ,   California, USA   (10.05.13)
If you can find one rav with any brains that is. On the left you have Nobel Prize winners, thousands of academicians, inventors, doctors, and more. Did I say politicians also?
10. #1
Harold ,   USA   (10.05.13)
You accepted the 9 mile wide concentration camp in 1948 by the founder of Israel, Ben Gurion. What made you change you mind now. Within five to six months this conflict will be over and a Palestinian State will be a new member of the United Nations.
11. Land for Peace?
Sherlock Holmes ,   London England   (10.06.13)
Put not your faith in Presidents nor your trust in Princes / Prime Ministers. The Guardian of Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps. The same Leftists who are fighting against our Holy Yeshivahs are prepared to give away the Heritage of the Land of Israel. 'Land for Peace' has been a consistent failure and brought only increased terrorism. Egypt and Jordan genuinely wanted peace and got it, while the PLO / PA had failed because it wants our destruction.
12. Maybe they should go get a real job
Haim ,   TA   (10.06.13)
The usual bunch of neurologically challenged individuals should go get a real job and leave politics to those who know.
13. The Land belongs to HASHEM -
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (10.06.13)
Zionist rabbis call on public to say special prayer 'for wholeness of the land' Comment - Therefore Israel has no rights to give it away. Arn.Sweden.
14. On Praying for Failure
Larry Snider ,   Morrisville, USA   (10.06.13)
I believe the Prime Minister is smart enough to defend the State of Israel and determine if Peace and Two States will be able to bring both Israel and the region to a more secure place. Pray for the enlightenment of friends and enemies alike to see value and prosperity in a future based on peace.
15. they are entitled to their stupid opinions.
Jewjitsu ,   AMERICA THE BEAUTIUL   (10.06.13)
no matter how shallow, how myopic, how dangerous and how appalling to the majority, they have every right to their opinions...which they should keep to themselves. IMHO.
16. Pray success not failure!!!
Peace negotiation that is kept in secret until finally done - so the citizens need to be praying that it will be in their favour and that will be success. And for the Rabbis not to be praying and tell God what they want is useless. That means they don’t even believed in God because they can’t even talk to Him. Too much freshly Rabbis holiness is not about dressing or outward appearance.
17. Straight talking
Wholeness of the land is the biblical borders and all need to pray for that to happen in the negotiation if we believe in God of creation and miracle working God. Get serious some Rabbis that never hear from God any more.
18. The Rabbis are far from alone.
Chaim ,   Israel   (10.06.13)
The Rabbis are certainly not alone in opposing lunatic "peace talks with Palestinians", who would like nothing more than to mass murder Israeli Jews and steal our sole tiny Homeland. The "peace talks" are intended to turn Israel into a 9 mile wide concentration camp. Every sane, wise Israeli opposes these evil talks. It is understandable that Israel's enemies want more Oslos. Oslo cost Israel more than 1,500 murdered and over 14,000 maimed. But what kind of idiotic Israeli wants more of that?
19. talkbacks
M.C,   (10.06.13)
Most of these talk backs are idiotic and show up the ignorance of those who know nothing about the state of Israel and the history of the Jewish people. The PA is a terrorist organization which wants to destroy the state and the Jews. They haven't kept to one agreement they've signed since the disastrous Oslo accords. Anyone who supports the so so called peace talks with a phoney never having existed people need to let their anger out somewhere else. Stop vilifying Rabbis they have a lot more to offer than ignorant self haters. Lefties get a life and stop kidding yourselves there will never be 2 states in out little land, Get used to it!!!
20. Prayers for wholesness of Israel
Elizabeth ,   Ottawa Canada   (10.09.13)
We pray Every Day that the Land of Israel will not be divided and that the People of Israel Love one another - "together we stand " God Bless you. Elizabeth
