1. Publish the bank accounts and leak out the wire transfers
Tehraniporou   (11.06.18)
to these terrorist groups so that people in iran can be aware in the increase or decrease of their expenditures. The leaders of iran are mortgaging the future of iran. The regime affiliates are getting rich like pachas in billions of USD. Old money like mine or the family suffer losses. We live outside of iran, work outside of iran, have properties outside of iran in addition to the couple of apartments or houses that we own in north Tehran and that are being rented. People are defaulting on their rent payments in Tehran. Everything is getting harder for people within the country. And the currency situation can only be interesting for people with foreign currencies and with the ability to bring goods bought outside in the country. La vita e bella. In the meantime, nutsyahuu is trumpeting his "historic victory" which won't change a damn thing. Iranians are not arabs and they are not going to pour in the streets to get killed.
2. In a certain sense I like Netanyahu,he is destroying Israel
Khalid Amayreh ,   Occupied Jerusalem   (11.06.18)
3. Awesome. G-d bless Bibi, G-d Bless Trump.
HRT ,   Washington, DC   (11.06.18)
And the libs? Their future is Pittsburg. Past is prologue.
Bibi gets it !
5. He's lost it completely
David ,   Haifa   (11.06.18)
This can't go on. We have a PM on way over his head, who apparently thinks eternal military domination over another people is just fine. His apparent corruption and blatant attacks on the rule of law are unprecedented. We need to be rid of him as soon as possible. I really hope Mandelblit decides to indict soon.

There are countries that have conquered and replaced entire populations and the world keeps silent... In fact Mr. Netanyahu you accuse the world not keeping silent about Israel's "conquered territories"! I think it is the first time in history, a statesman accuses his own country of evil it has never done. During your last speech at the UN, you pronounced for the first time the League of Nations, but still you had not the guts to mentions the League's crucial decision in International Law concerning the rights of the Jewish people in Palestine. Well, voting the Mandate for Palestine in 1922, unanimously by all its 51 members, the League of Nations gave the Jewish people the IRRECOCABLE RIGHT to settle anywhere between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, at least (accepting under Article 25 the British Mandatory proposal to exclude for the time being the eastern part of the Jordan River for Jewish settlement, but of no value anymore because the Mandate ceased to exist) and the Golan Heights! This became International Law, valid to this very day, can't be rescinded, reaffirmed by Article 80 of the UN Charter and protected by the rule of Res Judicata. But from the Israeli Prime Minister, NOT ONE WORD!
7. Heck, we occupied and all but exterminated American Indians
Steve Benassi ,   Plymouth, MN USA   (11.06.18)
8. What occupation?! Arabs occupying Jericho, if so: YES!
9. Israeli retreats & concesions root cause of all our problems
Chaim ,   Israel   (11.06.18)
Bibi is 100% correct about the so-called "occupation". Israel only "occupies" some of our own land. We need to permanently retake our lands we foolishly ceded to our mortal "Palestinian" foes. Including all of Judea and Samaria, Gaza and our South Lebanon Security Zone. Israel also needs to reverse all our insane concessions to "Palestinians". Israeli retreats and concessions are the root cause of practically all our serious problems.
10. The PM is almost correct!
Bill ,   Skokie U.S.A.   (11.06.18)
Mr. Netanyahu is almost correct when he states "'Occupation' is bull. There are countries that have conquered and replaced entire populations and the world keeps silent" When he uses the word "world" it implies every man woman and child on earth, which we know is not true. However "There are countries that have conquered and replaced entire populations" is true the United states of America is one of those countries. Americas were not empty of people when the Europeans started to live here. There were tens of millions of people already here that were killed and removed. The world was not silent! There were those whom objected and thought it to be wrong and wanted to protect the people who were here but money and opportunity was more powerful than the voices of love and justice. This took place 500 years ago. In the modern world this still happens but not in western nations. Israel wants to be part of the western world and as such will be judge according to western standards. If Israel wants to join the group of uncivilized heathen nations and not western culture then Mr. Netanyahu statements stand correct. Israel is to be a light unto all the nations of the world showing that there are two laws that govern us all, "Love they neighbor as thyself, and to Love God our father with all you heart.
11. It's all about simply occupy your own house
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (11.06.18)
or place...oh well.
