1. GOOD! Recognize all of Israel's land
BUILD BY BUILD !!!!   (08.31.14)
claim it name it and make it Israel. KEEP BUILDING THEY ARE COMING !!!!
2. The reality is . . .
Sherlock Holmes ,   London England   (08.31.14)
20% of Israeli are Arabs. By the same token there should be Jews living on the West Bank, whether governed by the PA or Israel. Biblical Israel actually included a goodly part of the modern Kingdom of Jordan as well as the West Bank. There can be PA govt on the ground in the West Bank combined with IDF security. About 77% of the Palestine Mandate was given to the Arab Kingom of [Trans]Jordan, although initially Britain considered giving the Jewish national home part of the EAST Bank as well as the West Bank. Foreign Office Papers, 371/7797. 12th March 1922.. Quoated in Sir Martin Gilbert, Churchill and The Jews, Simon and Schuster 2007.
3. Government fooling us again
RealityCheck ,   Jerusalem Israel   (08.31.14)
The real area that needs settlement is EASTWARDs of the Gush not westward this is a joke anyone looking east these days will see a new "Gaza Strip" wall of tens of thousands of Arab single homes built illegally on tens of thousands of dunams while Jewish settlement are squeezed on an eighth of tha amount of land like Har Homa 25,000 residents built on a tiny hill while just east of them the Arabs are spreading out all over creating a very very dangerous second Gaza Strip where are our leaders another disaster in the making .
4. Build for people not for idealists
Zionist forever   (08.31.14)
We should build settlements tactically such as expanding existing blocks over a certain size in places where ordinary people would like to live not just the idealists for who building is like a drug and they need to get their fix by constantly building new settlements. Building new settlements for political reasons like punishing Hamas or building because it's ' Jewish land ' means we are not spending money to build homes for ordinary people we are just satisfying the political and religious idealists which is a waste of money. Build but build for homes not politics or ideology.
5. That's the way to go !!!!!! Peace Now can
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (08.31.14)
also go now ...
6. The Power of G-d's Word prevails
DvorahTheProphetess ,   SC, USA   (08.31.14)
Kol Ha Kavod, Yigal Dimoni Secure Israel's frontier and keep Am Yisrael intact! As for you, Yariv Oppenheimer, perhaps your "peaceful" efforts would be better served on our U.S. - Mexico border, where you can join the Democrats in the dissolution of America.
7. Apartheid democracy fuels more bloodshed
8. Like I said, BUILD BABY BUILD !!!
BUILD BY BUILD !!!!   (08.31.14)
Also, ANNEXATION AND REPATRIATION, BABY!!! ( See why G-d charged Jews NOT to allow other faiths in Israel? )
9. # 4 I disagree.
BUILD BY BUILD !!!!   (08.31.14)
San Francisco had 542 'settlers' before the gold rush. ( and they weren't Jewish ) All of America, and most nations on earth, started as hamlets, 'settlements' bergs, etc. small exclaves of people. Knowing the original borders of Israel as stating in the Torah, why limit the remnant of Israel to a few major cities and ignore parts of Israel as valuable as any other established city, when the Arabs don't bother to get building permits while stealing Jewish lands?? Think about it, booby. KEEP BUILDING LIMITLESSLY!!!!
10. Hallelujah!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (08.31.14)
Annexation begins! Oh, happy day!
11. Go Abbas
Emma ,   Israel   (08.31.14)
To the HAGUE And bring this rogue state where it deserve to be!Enough!
12. Israel is a land grabber community
Non Jewish Immigrant ,   Haifa   (08.31.14)
More land theft by a community made of thieves and crooks. A community that kills children while crying to the whole world that it's them who are the victims. A community that has been lying for decades G. Moscatelli Haifa
13. Logic like that topples under its own weight.
Jonathan Lyon ,   Berkeley, USA   (08.31.14)
Moscatelli. Why did you come to Israel? Why would you want to live there? And who let you in!! And now you are living a good life in Haifa which, according to your own view was stollen from the Arabs and should've given back to them.
14. @#12 Non Jewish Immigrant in Haifa
DvorahTheProphetess ,   SC, USA   (08.31.14)
Your many YNet comments reflect your continuous DIS-satisfaction with Israel. WHY, then, do you stay? Re-patriate yourself back to whatever gentile nation thou comest from, and leave Eretz Yisrael to G-d's Chosen People. Shavouah Tov.
15. Peace Now is a stinking disgrace to the Jewish People!
Throw the Arab usurpers out of our Land. It is ours because we say so! Let these drugged leftists go and free Apache lands in the Imperialist USA!
16. #12
Michael ,   Haifa   (08.31.14)
I strongly disagree with your second point which is far too simplistic to be true, while concurring with your other two points
17. When are we going to build in the Golan
Zionist forever   (08.31.14)
The one area that always seems to be be neglected by the idealists and politicians when it comes to spending on settlements is the Golan despite the fact we need as many people as possible there make sure no future politicians give it away. Rabin, Peres, Barak, Bibi during his first term, Olmert they have all come close to giving away the Golan but thank to either Assad senior & junior or in Olmerts case time limitations as PM the deal fell through but to keep it we need people living there in huge numbers and the Syrian war is an opportunity because nobody is calling for a peace process with Syria so nobody cares if we build or not.
18. We hope to read more of this!Oley!
olim hadashim ,   tel aviv/israel   (08.31.14)
19. Peace Now is wrong, as usual.
David ,   Hartford USA   (08.31.14)
Instead of 'stabbing Abbas in the back,' Israel is showing strength proving to the Arabs that murder does not pay. If they insist on random kidnappings, murders, and dismemberments, they will find that any future 'Palestine' will be very small indeed.
20. G. Moscatelli, go back to Italy.
David ,   Hartford USA   (08.31.14)
Of all the countries in the world, why did you come to Israel? You're so close to Lebanon, why not just move there? I'm sure you'll find lots of people who think just like you. You might become BFF with Nasrallah, who must be your hero.
21. Samaria land returning to Israel.
Doc Stevens ,   Youngstown, USA   (08.31.14)
Samaria & Judea are & were Israel longer than the existence of the man-made, evil Koran. The arab occupiers must return to their homelands: Jordan, Syria, Cyprus, Lebanon & Egypt. I would like to move to this land- land that is returning to Israel proper.
22. #12
shrinkDave ,   Miami USA   (08.31.14)
As long as you are paying taxes, and we don't find a tunnel under your house, you are welcome to believe whatever you'd like. However, we might want to give your home a once over inspection.
23. To: No. 12
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (08.31.14)
And no one is forcing you to live in a country you despise. Kindly pack your trash and get the hell out of Israel. Surely you'll be much happier elsewhere. A non-Jewish immigrant to Israel has no business telling the Jewish people what is good for them or how their government should be run. Learn your place, maggot, or leave.
24. Yay
Birdi ,   Israel   (08.31.14)
and yay again!
25. Now that 'Two States' is impossible
The Kibitzer ,   Adelaide, Australia   (09.01.14)
the One State Solution becomes inevitable. The death of Zionism allows the birth of Democracy. And the sooner the better!
26. Response to #23
Nadya ,   California, USA   (09.01.14)
You are trash, the gentleman has every right to voice his opinion without derogatory statements from the likes of you. Israel has lost it's moral compass, after reading these comments you obviously think stealing land is OK just because you can. The land is not yours and you have no rights to steal from Palestinians under Israeli occupation. You should all be ashamed.
27. To whom it may concern and everyone else...
milwaukeebroad ,   Haifa, Israel   (09.01.14)
The West Bank and Gaza already belongs to Israel. We're taking back what's ours. And we're taking it back despite the objections of Gentiles. Don't like it? Take it up with The Almighty.
28. #26 nadya - correct
solomon ,   bklyn   (09.02.14)
Everyone has a right to voice their opinion. But your opinion is full of wishful thinking. The land DOES belong to Israel. They were attacked, they fought back, and won. End of story. And there is no occupation. Hamas and the PA control Gaza and the WB. Each has another outlet, either to Egypt or Jordan. Facts.
