1. Israel needs a constitution, laws which are clear.
Michael ,   California, USA   (07.31.17)
As is, every issue in Israel is debatable, is endlessly tossed from ministry to ministry, from right to middle to left, is bastardized in every way by unscrupulous attorneys who make money dragging it out endlessly. The Knesset needs to roll up its sleeves and stop being lazy. Knesset members are elected to serve the Israeli public and for many years now Israeli public has needed the Constitution.
2. Indeed: Israelis ARE slowly realizing they've been dupes,
led by zigzagging governments, bleeding in the streets like sheep,
victims of "uncontrollable" urge of local Arabs
to hook up with 72 virgins in the sky....
That's why Azaria, in spite of his blunder enjoys such support.
The Undead Leftists are up in arms- that's only to be expected.
Time to stop the fantasy of "moral army" BS!!
We are painting ourselves into a corner, why???!
3. a sorry, embarassment to State of Israel - for which Bibi...
Rafi ,   US   (08.01.17)
Bennett and the rest of the nauseating political panderers to their constituent base were also responsible
4. Israelis waking up to the moral urgency of victory
Chaim ,   Israel   (08.01.17)
It is no surprise that Barnea is completely wrong about the legacy of the Azaria affair. From Barnea's perspective, Israeli victory is wrong. So Israel is obliged to be super kind to "Palestinian" terrorists, and "Palestinians" in general, and never violate their supposed rights.

However, most Israelis are waking up to the moral urgency of Israeli victory. Most Israelis are increasingly fed up with "purity of arms" and other ludicrous ideas which make it impossible for Israel to win. This largely explains massive Israeli support for Azaria.
