2. Lorde is PURE scum and so are her supporters !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (01.05.18)
3. Klieger is pathetic
Ben Alofs ,   Bangor   (01.05.18)
First of all, Justine Sachs is a New Zealander, who happens to be Jewish.
Secondly, to call her and other Jews, who are critical of the State of Israel, "lunatics", reflects more on Klieger's state of mind than on Justine Sachs.
Thirdly, Ynet, this article is of such poor quality, that I am baffled. Does Ynet have any minimum journalistic standards?
4. To much ado about nothing
Peter Falk ,   Canberra   (01.05.18)
Jew haters will always exist (whether jews or non jews).
Simply the jews are a reference in history and the basis of all monotheist religions.
Whoever is hating , insulting , hurting a jew is lacking respect for himself , it is like spitting in the air and falling on their head.
5. Sorry but Saul/Paul never existed neither did Jesus exist..
Zippy's Used Cars ,   Levittown, NY   (01.05.18)
But the writers of the Gospels did write anti-Jewish screed including approximately over 200 scenes of Jewish hatred in a small book.
6. cowards, not self hatred
k ,   US   (01.05.18)
these people are motivated by a cowardly desire to suck up to an evil and save themselves and try and make a name for themself, it is alot more evil and unforgiving than a "self-hating" Jew, they are a bigger enemy to the Jews than an Islamic terrorist as they are giving giving credibility to all of the anti-semites on the earth
7. idiots
self hating ,   tucson   (01.05.18)
hard core liberals,no morals or values
9. Saul of Tarsus replies
Bernhard ,   Jerusalem   (01.05.18)
I have deep sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from Messiah for the sake of my brothers, my own flesh and blood, the people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption as sons; theirs the divine glory and the covenants; theirs the giving of the Law, the temple worship, and the promises. Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them proceeds the human descent of Messiah, who is God over all, forever worthy of praise! Amen.
Saul of Tarsus, the "anti-semite".

ab   (01.05.18)
,like hen he penned "Bomber who saved Peace" about creature who murdered 22 Israeli teenage girls in front of Dolphinarium in TA.
And he lives in Israel
12. An ideaological fourth wave feminist lesbian tomboy.....,
Zippy's Used Cars ,   Levittown, NY   (01.05.18)
has a religion that is no less based on mythology than Nazism or Communism or any other religion both secular or theistic.
13. Israel is an Israeli country. Nothing strange there.
Michael ,   California, USA   (01.05.18)
You can try to understand why the differences exist and what is happening instead of waving your hands. The disparity between the two groups is growing and the bond is weakening. Criticism one way or the other could be aired out in open discussions. Mr. Klieger's examples will not eradicate reality.
14. Self-Hating Jews are FRIGTENED LOSERS
Jim Carrol ,   berkley USA   (01.05.18)
15. Justine Sachs isn't much different from Labor/Meretz M.K.
Chaim ,   Israel   (01.05.18)
The sad fact is that self hating leftist Jews like Justine Sachs are just a little bit more extreme than a typical Labor "Zionist Union" or Meretz M.K. While these leftist M.K.s are much better positioned to harm Israel than the likes of Justine Sachs will ever be. Only a self hating Jew would want to divide Jerusalem and create a new terrorist "Palestinian" state in the heart of our sole tiny Homeland - turning Israel into a defenseless 9 mile wide concentration camp.
16. Richard Silverstein, hater
Fenster   (01.05.18)
He actually named his blog Tikun Olam. So he's repairing the world by slandering Jews. Every day he gets up and writes bad things about Israel and his fellow Jew. Sometimes he gets published in the Guardian or other media.
17. Why Jews demonize Israel
Dan Calic   (01.06.18)
This piece from a few years ago addresses the issue-
18. Noah Klieger is a racist!
Stan ,   Israel   (01.06.18)
He accepts any violence perpetrated by Jews in Israel against non Jews as fine.
He did not criticise Ami Popper, or Baruch Goldstein for the mass murderers which they carried out.
He made no criticism of Jews who burnt down churches and mosques or burnt to death a young Palestinian family.
He does not understand "Jewish Morality"
Jews in South Africa helped the non whites in their struggle to achieve equality.
In America Jews helped the Blacks achieve equality in the Southern states.
In SA and in USA Jews were killed by white officials for doing this.
19. Like white Jews hating dark Jews, Yemeni Jews
Steve Benassi   (01.07.18)
20. ok, hatred is = someone that doesnt join the party line
epo   (01.07.18)
you think you are wise?

their actions tell, that they hate the destruction of values which is taking place in israel - at rapidest speed.

if they would "hate" judaism, they may attack/reject the religion, but obviously they dont do that.

you are the one who is hating jews.
21. Ph.D
Hadi Eid   (01.08.18)
No. It is not hard to understand. After all, Jews are essentially humans.
22. Jewish American Nazi
anthony lefco ,   Sarasota   (01.10.18)
23. Paul was not the big daddy of anti semitism!
V ,   Nahariya   (01.15.18)
Paul the Apostle (Saul of Tharsus) was not a self hating Jew. As a matter of fact, he persecuted and killed followers of Jesus! That is, until he had a divine revelation from God and saw Jesus. And then he changed his name and followed Jesus, preaching love and tolerance and ended up being martyred for his efforts. He died a Jew, one who believed that Jesus is the messiah.
24. They're able to think on their own to speak the bitter TRUTH
ironbutterfly ,   Naples, FL   (01.26.18)
They're INTELLIGENT people who do not belong to the herd of sheep, and who are able to think and analyze using their own brains, and not to follow the "self-hating" hysteria of jew-zombies. They speak their OWN mind, they speak the TRUTH. And the truth in the jewish world is very bitter, especially when it's tied to the "jewish-homeland". Israel itself wasn't build with nice words and sweet deeds. Its foundation is based on tons of lies related to the zionist dealers' plan to establishing a "jewish-homeland" in Palestine, and then even more brutal lies related to populating Palestine with jews, war of "independence" and establishing the state of Israel. These so called "selfhating" jews do not follow the masses, because the masses are herds of fools. They know that and therefore they speak the truth, which is obviously creates hurricanes of hysteria. Fortunately the Truth always prevails.
25. Oh yes, they are sheep!
Magvitum ,   Evanston   (02.07.18)
Sheep. That's what they are. Unable to stand for what they are, their cultural genes. They are desperate to be "accepted." To be part of the greater community of sheep. They are too cowardly to stand for anything that requires individuality. Imagine a jewesse being flattered, adulated, buttered up by the terrorists who would kill them if they could! What an awesome experience for someone who has nothing inside!
26. Jew hope
Vineyard Vinny ,   Seattle   (02.13.18)
It is disgraceful how many so-called Jews in America have absolutely abandoned their religion, people and culture. How many "Jewish" celebrities claim that although they are atheists, or believe in Jesus, or refer to Israel as a police state, apartheid state, nazi state, etc. How many think nothing of intermarriage and refuse to educate and raise their children Jewish?
Nevertheless, they still identify as being Jewish. American-Jews, in particular are the worst and should no longer claim to be Jewish, unless they truly appreciate and practice the religion. TENS OF MILLIONS OF JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE BEEN MURDERED AND PERSECUTED FOR THEIR RELIGION, CULTURE AND PEOPLE. Today's faux Jews have lost their connections to our history, and do not have the right to claim that they are Jewish.
27. Anti Israel Jews
In case of ....they'll be happy to find refuge here , in the state they dislike
28. Et tu, Noah Kliegel
DB ,   NY   (04.05.18)
"it's a phenomenon we mustn't belittle", they're "Lunatics" and "there's no need to go on".......but then you can't help yourself from taking a final swipe at the Christian Community that has made tremendous sacrifices to protect Israel from annihilation and be their strongest partner. How very foolish! You reallllly know how to win friends with your backhanded slaps.

Perhaps, Mr Noah Klieger, you are unwittingly an 'Anti-Jew' shooting Israel in the foot. Jesus, Paul and the other disciples and followers were never 'Jew-Haters' or 'Anti-Jew': They were anti-corruption, a problem Israel still has to this very day. Keep in mind, Mr. Klieger, and stop being a trope for the perpetual prototypical Jew playing 'Victim': Neither Jesus or Paul chased down Jews, put Jews in chains, asked Pontius Pilat for their heads or shouted "Crucify Him!" The blood of Jesus and his Jewish followers is all on YOU and your ancestors. Christians, then or now, take no joy in the death of Jews but it was Jews who spat on and abused Jesus on the path to his crucifixion and who cheered when he died. In fact, many thousands of Christians died to liberate Jews from Holocaust camps only to be thanked with usurious lending rates, Israeli Spy Aldrich Ames and the sinking of the USS Liberty in June 1967. Thanks a lot.

Let's be honest, Mr. Kliegel, throughout history, it has been the Jews who were Anti-Christian and that the choice of Jews at that time to align behind corrupt and jealous temple rabbis instead of Jesus is why Israel suffered the loss of the Temple Mount, the loss of becoming a Jewish New World & Jewish Europe, the Holocaust, Islam & Ottoman rule, Masada, the Crusaders 'Sack of Jerusalem and many other trevails.

You, Mr. Kliegel, are not only Anti-Christian Jesus-hating Jew but also one of the Self-Hating Jews you rail against.
29. No hard to understand
Martyn ,   Tel Aviv   (04.28.18)
The worst enemy of the Jewish people will rise from within its people. Our Torah says it and these Jews represent the ones who badly influenced others to build the golden calf. I am asking these Jews, Liberal Jews to do only 1 thing: Change your name to a Smith, Dupont or Durand and get the... out of our people !

30. Psychiatrist
Eugène FRANK MD ,   Paris   (05.08.18)
Your upsetness is overdone: some people garner needed attention by denouncing what they are expected to uphold: that defiance is characteristic of kids at 2 y/o: there should be no need to have absolute obediance to your own views, unless you are ambivalent about your own views. Why do you need to take the other's political position as an attack on yours? Judiasm is not a religion, but a way of life that is committed to the philanthropy to one's own, and each of us must do good deeds to atone for our sins against man, a heritage and way of life to be proud of...those who cannot live up to those standards and requirements to do good, opt-out: let them with blessings,
