1. Bashar Masri
Mike ,   TA   (02.19.14)
Bashar Masri..."Masri" means Egyptian in Arabic...the origin of many of the so-called "Palestinians". Way to go, you're building the future HQ of Hamas when they take over the PA!
2. We R our own worst enemies
TheyUnifiedWeDivided ,   Jerusalem Israel   (02.19.14)
I now believe after reading this that in the end they will be the winners here , no one can doubt they are much more unified they we ever were or ever will be and that is and always was the deciding factor of any peoples success, another Jewish tragedy They believe in their cause and we no longer do and our media will have played the biggest part in that defeat
3. Pretty

"Rawabi ("The Hills" in Arabic) is built on a West Bank hill that overlooks the entire region. Nablus is clearly seen from the north, while Ramallah gazes back at the city from the south; the entire coastal plain appears on the western side of the city, including the Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan skylines." The entire coastal plain, eh? Including Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan. "On a clear day, you can see the Hadera and Ashkelon power plant chimneys from the balcony" I'm sure the terrorist "Palestinians" are chortling with glee. "Among those who purchased apartments are Arab-Israelis who bought a second apartment, and are planning to use it during the weekends, as well as East Jerusalem residents who are hiding the transition for fear of losing their Israeli IDs." Oh, I think the residents of East Jerusalem can kiss their Israeli IDs good-bye. You cannot serve two masters -- unless you are willing to shoulder the tax burden. Israel's is not small, and all indications are that the tax burden for "Palestine" will far outstrip that of Israel. After all, how else can you raise revenue for so many excess civil jobs? Doesn't anyone find it passing strange that there should be more "officials" and "government employees" on the "Palestine" Authority payroll than there are municipal employees for the City of New York? I do. " ... three schools, a mosque, a church, a large amphitheater and a soccer field are all being built in the city" Looks like the "Palestine" Authority is serious about being Judenrein. Does that mean that Israel can be "Arabrein?" "The city is built first and foremost for Palestinians. Arab-Israelis are Palestinians just like a Palestinian residing in Jordan is a Palestinian" Yup, Judenrein for sure. They had better turn their gaze eastward to Jordan for water carriers, electrical grids and sewage infrastructure. Why should Israel help in the creation of a Judenrein entity? Roads are going to be a bit of a problem, too. Oh well.
4. I don´t know about you people but I´m excited
Yeoshua F. ,   N.Y   (02.19.14)
I really admire these Palestinians for rising from the ashes and believing in themselves, and building a better future every day. It´s a truly American story ! Shame on the ones who are not inspired and moved by these industrious Palestinians. The whole world turned it´s back on them yet they kept on fighting back until they turned the tide. Now Israel is seriously messed up. As they say.. build baby build.. in Rawabi.
5. Pay heed ....

"Nablus is clearly seen from the north, while Ramallah gazes back at the city from the south; the entire coastal plain appears on the western side of the city, including the Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan skylines." See the part about the Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan skylines? It's a cautionary tale for the brain-damaged leftists in Israel who believe peace with terrorist thugs is possible.

10. NO New Arab Settlements
Yishai Kohen ,   YeShA, Israel   (02.19.14)
Not here in OUR land. If they oppose us living here, then they can't build.
11. How many Jewish settlers can hold, when we take it back?
David Mashiah   (02.19.14)
Thanks for building for us again....
12. JNF donated trees to Rawabi the planners pulled them up
zionist forever   (02.19.14)
The JNF which is supposed to use its money to make Israel a better place donated thousands of trees to Rawabi but when it became public knowledge that the trees had been donated by the JNF they were all pulled up. Thats gratitude for you
