1. Only traitors encourage people to vote
Avramele   (02.04.15)
Real patriots tell leftists and minorities to stay home and real patriots only accept money from casino moguls and fundamentalist christians. And how dare YNET have a point of view. Having a preferred candidate is reserved for free foreign owned papers like Yisrael Hayom and not for sale Israeli owned publications. What chutzpah these leftists have!
2. OverOptimistic not Traitors
Zechariah   (02.04.15)
The term Leftist is spat out by more Tribal Herd like types.But left a lot are for economic equalization and still striking on Security .Gallon Leader of the Palmach ultra left economic-socially insisted on IDF control of the Jordan Valley area .
3. Who are they kidding, the traitors?
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (02.04.15)
4. Nothing spells "regime change" like these 2 jokers!
5. I will be cashing in all my empty bottles
Ben   (02.04.15)
And donating the proceeds to V15! lol hakavod to them!
6. If true..
Beary White ,   Norway   (02.04.15)
..they receive economic support from mr Sotero (the sunni..) and other enemies of Israel in EU, then they are traitors. We have to remember this is the way foreign powers uses when they will intervene in countries. Also Norway did support ANC and Balkan states with money and IKT to make a change in those countries. It is time for Israel to be aware of this kind of hostile actions from abroad, destroy Israel from within...
7. Foreign funded ngo-s are traitors
Daniel ,   TA - IL   (02.04.15)
and this is a typical jewhating eu-funded hategroup, willing to do the eu's jewhating bidding! I do not believe any of their lies!
8. Vergeltung 15
Economist ,   Be'er Sheba Israel   (02.04.15)
"Something is rotten in the state of Democrats" "The laddies doth protest too much, methinks". This is about retaliation (payback), not social justice. The ideological bloc behind V15 has a long, well-documented history of working with those who plainly express their intention to dismantle the State of Israel. There are historical parallels to what they're doing... using the political system to undermine actual democracy, replacing it with something that restricts the benefits to a specific sector. If they're successful, we'll see continued expansion of the ideology that is frankly way too much like that of 1930s Germany. Is that where we're headed? Seems like it. 70 years after our collective nightmare, and the same things are happening again... slowly and incrementally... yet moving towards the same result.
9. Verbal tricks
Shalom ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (02.04.15)
They claim that they are not recommending any party. But draw up the list of parties they recommend you NOT to vote for (maybe also not Labor) and what is left? Just Meretz and Lapid? So it is silly to call them traitors, but their pretense of neutrality is laughable. They are indeed campaigning for left of center with foreign money, like Herzog's amutot in 1999. And their telling people that overthrowing the government will put more money in people's pockets is classic far-left claptrap.
10. Avramele, got any proof?
Jake   (02.04.15)
Fundamentalist Christian donors to Netanyahu's reelection campaign? Got any proof? The facts show that foreign donors to Netanyahu campaign are actually Jewish. Or did you forget that Israel happens to be the JEWISH STATE Now let's look into the issue of foreign governments and NGO's backing the Left.
11. This article is probably part of the spin from their org.
Resident ,   Haifa   (02.04.15)
If the Barak Obama agenda, (as Obama is working feverishly against Natanyahu) comes to Israel as he wants it to, we will wind up in dire straights like America. Hertzog and the left will be no good for this country. The really hypocritcal part is how Obama cited he won't meet Natanyahu in the states (before this whole affair with Jeremy Bird became evident) - because he "didn't want to be involved in Israeli politics so close to the new elections", while at the same time sending his little minions here to do a little hands-on work. Obama has complete disdain for Natanyahu because our PM stands up against his lunatic policies in the world and middle east. I pray the Israeli public will be too smart for this, and the whole thing will backfire on Obama.
12. !! Don't know what I want, but I know how to get it
Ovadiah ben Avraham ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (02.04.15)
Sex Pistols "Anarchy in the UK V15 is worse than traitors. V15 is part of the West's postmodern movement to replace political platforms with lifestyle advertising. Propaganda by focus groups.

14. I call this yellow journalism "par excellence".
Jake   (02.04.15)
15. 2 embarrassing minor details
Mini   (02.04.15)
Why did two non-Israeli foreign citizens, one American another Mexican prove to have been given vast amounts of money to these punks against the sprit and letter of the law? Why did the reporter ask about Lapid but not Bennet? Transparent fraud - both the ridiculous pathetic puff piece, the deliberate avoiding of pertinent issues and their responses. Traitors indeed with big capital letters.
16. All those from Rothschild 2011!
David ,   Israel   (02.04.15)
We are with you all the way. Lets do it right this time.
17. Anyone else sick and tired of politics ?
