Siding with Israel's fiercest enemies he doesn't deserve a place there.
That's why he probably chose to be cremated....his last act of "defiance".

4. Who said it's not nice,to say bad things about the deceased?
This maniac got to be 94, while so many patriots die young??!!
What a fucked up world!
But hey, lots of old Nazis got to die in their beds at similar age, God loves these mo-foes....
5. RIP

An advocate of peace. Shame on you with Hate Comments
6. no wonder
C   (08.20.18)
he came from a wealthy german family that fled germany to escape
the nazis. his conviction was not zionism, but self preservation.

the problem with him was not that he opposed certain government
policies. the problem with him was that he went over to the other
side, the side of israel's enemies.

had he stayed in germany, he might have joined the hitler youth.
he was not a serious zionist, nor was he a serious marxist.
he was outside of the zionist fold. he was not loyal to the state
that gave him refuge. he was loyal to himself and to arafat.
can one call him naive? no, one cannot. he was a lover of the
absurd, of the rebellion of childhood. he never grew up.
7. I agree with Gee59
Brad ,   USA   (08.20.18)
Left wing wackos live way to long and do way to much damage to the innocent. Avnery was no friend of Israel. Good riddance.
8. Hard to describe the loathing& disgust that man had caused
in his (too long) lifetime.
9. Don't you worry my dear Uri, ***PEACE*** is coming !!!!!!!!!
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (08.20.18)
The ***PEACE of the BRAVE*** as Brother Yasser referred to it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
10. Israel should be enjoying 3rd decade of permanent peace
Chaim ,   Israel   (08.20.18)
Israeli leftists, like Avnery, are allowed to get away with all forms of treachery simply by mouthing the word "peace". The left does nothing but harm Israel. Israel needs treason laws, with teeth, to deal properly with them. The best way to remember the likes of Avneri would be to enact such laws and rigorously enforce them.

Israel would now be enjoying our third decade of permanent peace had the lunatic leftist Labor Party not rescued the genocidal terrorist PLO from exile and handed it much of our sole tiny Homeland.
11. Avnery can rot in hell together with his buddy Yasser

14. He even fashioned his appearance after Stalin
Empress Trudy ,   raleigh   (08.20.18)
He is what the left today would love to be
15. a traitor who never wanted a jewish state
zionist forever   (08.20.18)
The man was never a zionist and he certainly did not want to see the creation of a JEWISH STATE - what he believed in was a state where Jews would live as equals in an arab majority binational state. He did not even like the fact the country was named Israel when he found out what it was to be named.
Whilst he may have accepted the idea of 2 states he never hid the fact that his ideal solution was either a binational state or a federation between Israel, the Pals and Jordan, the idea of a Jewish state where Jews are the masters in their own land was never a big priority for him.
The man went to meet with Arafat even when he did not pretend to be anything but a terrorist and since oslo he has campaigned for a Pals state, he has never once sided with Israel so the man is a traitor and its just a pity he was around so long.
16. LLL the looney liberal left original
Larry ,   LA (formerly)   (08.20.18)
I remember him from way back; always wanted peace and ready to believe Arabs and their lies and could never see the reality of their desires to get rid of us.

17. He replied to my email, I said 1 state is only solution now

21. Total Respect.

Rest in Peace, your courage, wisdom, commitment to true values of Torah will long be remembered.

The ad hominem attacks here are disgraceful.

American Jews are waking up, with groups like IfNotNow, Breaking the Silence, Neturei Karta, Jewish Voice for Peace, courageous souls like Miko Peked and Avnery, speaking the truth to Hasbara propaganda and changes in Congress, the bill to protect Palestinian kids from Israel's abuses... without U.S. 11 million a day, Israel won't be able to to do whatever, whenever it wants with no consequences.

The occupation is harming the collective Soul of Judaism.

It has to end.
