1. Give the anti-semites a free ride to Gaza or Syria
Mark Jeffery Koch ,   Mount Laurel, NJ USA   (07.27.17)
I don't care if you are a Muslim religious authority living in Israel or Mohgammed Abbas or any member of his group, or any Arab member of Knesset. If you incite, encourage, and abet people to take up violence against the Jewish people then you should be deported from Israel, the views of the international community be damned. You have a right to peacefully protest the actions of the Israeli government but when you encourage acts of violence there can only be one solution. The Israeli army needs to pull up several vans to your homes and give you three hours to load all your belongings, and then give you a choice as to where you want to be taken: Gaza or Syria, and you and all your belongings should be left there.
The tolerance of the Israeli government is something that baffles me. Their number one responsibility is the life and safety of the Israeli people and if you have people calling for others to murder and harm innocent men, women, and children then deport them immediately, whether it is ten people or ten thousand. Peaceful protest, YES, but if you encourage violence then go live under the rule of Assad of Damascus or Hamas in Gaza.
2. Very well said, profiling the Arab hate source
Avram ,   Toronto -Kiriat Gat   (07.27.17)
Within himself and using the Islam as camouflage for their brutality of their self distraction.
The conclusion is:
-Palestinian demand for statehood is the strategy to annihilate Israel , peace is for them to gain momentum to destroy Israel
- All accord with Arabs are dangerous and no standing for long haul, as change and radicalization will be very often occur within Arab society, due to brutal and despotic regime

Israel is "joggling" with the situation as up to now from 1948 , and a firm and conclusive decision will be needed as situation is over for to be the a contained conflict which stand in Israel strength to be firm in its action.

When are you going to stop with your desire to please the Left and talking again and again about OCCUPATION? I really hope dear Ben-Dror, that you are enough sincere with yourself to admit that "occupation" is just a Leftist myth to hide the disastrous disowning of a Jewish Independent State offered on a golden plate by the international community to the Jewish people in 1922 by the League of Nations: the Mandate for Palestine that gave the Jews a territory at least between the Sea and the Jordan River, including the Golan Heights, to build their Independent State. An irrevocable right that became International Law, valid to this day and reaffirmed by Article 80 of the United Nations' Charter! Denying this historical truth, keeping it classified, is betraying the Jewish people and putting the State of Israel in danger. Ben-Dror, aren't you ashamed to protect an ideology that by disowning a Jewish State in the past made Hitler's Final Solution possible?
5. No Lack of Jewish Self Respect & Pride "live On" sadly
JewsRAngryVeryAngry ,   Jerusalem Israel   (07.29.17)
the foul Israeli media has sold them "better to be wise than right"
to the point we have no soul left
6. Terrorism as a force
David chin   (07.30.17)
Nice informative article. My main criticism is that it seems to describe terrorism as an impersonal force in history that suddenly impersonally appears. It is, rather, a deliberate tactic used by Arab leaders to achieve a specific goal. As before, in this case, the call to violence/terror was the false assertion about the Jews planning on destroying the Al Aksa mosque.
