1. Driving 8 Million into the Sea
Mark ben Josef ,   USA   (06.16.16)
An ambitious program. Driving 6 million Lebanese into the sea and driving 2 million Gazans into the sea or to into Egypt to be shot would give Israel the record. Pol Pot only did 3 million during the Killing Fields period.
2. Surprising
Mark ben Josef ,   USA   (06.16.16)
Surprised that the Israeli government would publish such plain intent without even saying how it could be justified. Ah Well! So much for the "most moral army" gambit.
3. Long overdue - Bibi's the problem
Avi L.   (06.17.16)
It's long overdue but the "top political echelon" i.e. our dear leader Bibi is the problem. Will he have the courage to risk votes, or will he trade votes for civilians lives as he did the last time? The foreign minister will have a lot of work toning down "indignation" from EU dhimis
4. Yeas ! - But the time is not Yet -
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (06.17.16)
It will be in the Messianic Time ! Jesaja Chap 11 vers - 14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; Arn.Sweden.
5. Be thankful Ye Clueless Fools, that you have Mr. Netanyahu
at the helm! Judging by the level of many comments the privilege(right?!) to vote should be denied to so many of our lobotomized citizens....Oy Vey!
6. With Hamas & P.A. fallen; peace will be close
Chaim ,   Israel   (06.18.16)
It is about time Israel finished off Hamas. It is even more important to let the terrorist P.A. fall too. Israel could finish off the P.A. with barely a shot. Just end the mad flow of Israeli food, money, electricity, work permits etc. to the fictional abomination of "Palestine". With Hamas and the P.A. fallen; peace will be much closer.
7. 2 Mark, not surprising at all
C   (06.20.16)
israel simply states that in the next war it intends to defeat hamas and hezbollah. the allies during wwii said the same regarding nazi germany and imperial japan..
8. Problem is every bodies hands are tied
Zionist forever   (06.21.16)
Getting rid of Abbas will probably backfire because there is nobody who can replace him that we could do business with.
If he did go the US would demand we make concessions to the new man to strengthen him against Hanas.
It's need done to us numerous time and the past and so will probably happen again.

Toppling Hamas the IDF plan for it but I doubt there is s political will. Last conflict the cabinet voted not to topple Hamas out of fear s group like ISIS would fill the void and that threat still threat remains.
Also would the US step in say proportional response forcing the Israrli government to not allow the IDF to do what they need to do.
Problem when we rely on the US for so much is we have to do as we are told so our hands can be tied by foreigners
9. Finally
Eporue ,   Guinea   (06.22.16)
The nightmare came true
.. haha
10. Lieberman's disappointing lack of imagination
Bruno ,   Haifa   (07.13.16)
Appointing three former party hacks to chair IMI, IAI, and Rafael requires no thought or imagination. What will you do when you run out of former cronies?
