Good grief what now?!! It makes me wonder not what Netanyahu is alleging that this is for, but what political credit he is trying to store up with his voters - what is he up to (apart from causing more suffering)?

Noted Thanks Carrie God bless us all these countries have so much hatred that they are their own worst enemy. I so don't understand why they can't just Live and let Live, their politics are so darn confusing and if these countries can't respect one another and their religions there will never be any peace between them.

Jewish people went through so much trauma and agony in the past.
Why they are not able to have more compassion now to the Palestinians is a mystery to me.

Makes you wonder if they really want a peace in which both Palestinians and Israeli live together in the area, either of them.

Netanyahu is a war mongering criminal and should stand trail at the Hague for crimes against humanity

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. And those who were "the bullied" become the bullies. So sad! I have to agree with Gary A L.'s comment above. I have read many articles indicating that the majority of the people in these countries want peace....especially the "younger" crowd. I've read that alliances for peace have formed among students, etc....

Jews mewl and whine about how they have been mistreated and persecuted over the centuries. I am truly sorry about all that, especially the unfathomable evil of the Holocaust. However, that does not in any way give them the right to be persecutors themselves.

The entire world needs to recognize Israel for the rogue nation that it is - and treat it accordingly. Israel may be a sacred cow, but remember that sacred kine make the tastiest beef stroganoff.

It is absolutely clear that this whiner, threatener has not now or ever had or ever anything to help peace come to pass.

Is Netanyahu Certifiable?

Is Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu of sound mind and knowingly talking propaganda nonsense about threats to Israel's security in order to fool the world including most of its Jews, or, is he unbalanced, mentally disturbed, even clinically insane?...

It's a hard case. For tonight I will leave it at that. I love Israel and I don't think I love Zionism. I know I love G-d but I know He loves me more than all of this.

It is about land and resources, for Israel - theft, displacement, seizures (evictions, annexations, home/property/farms/agricultural land) and displacement of Palestinians from their homeland.
This has resulted in over 750, 000 refugees and unconscionable suffering.
Israel, has financed the it's defense (IDF) and occupying forces (IOF), illegal occupation, and illegal 'fence" (wall/separation barrier) with US funding provided at the expense of American taxpayers - about 10.5 million a day ( approx. 3 Billion plus, a year)!

Israel, AIPAC AND THE JEWISH LOBBY DO NOT REPRESENT AMERICAN INTERESTS - END ALL US military aid to Israel. Divest, boycott and sanctions now!
Say no to human rights violations and abuses by Israel. Call officials, senators, John Kerry/Obama and end US subsidizing these violations of International Laws and crimes against humanity, now.

Israeli policies are discriminatory and criminal AMERICANS DO NOT NEED THIS 'special relationship'.

Netanyahu, apparently, believes he can continue to threaten and bully the Palestinian people, and 'punish' any entity that supports human rights, freedom from Israeli control, oppression and self determination for Palestinians.

I've had it with the hateful BS "Zionazism" spewed by commenters here. For 66 years, Israel has been under attack and in a defensive position - remember the Israeli children thrown off a school roof in Ma'alot? The plane hijacking a of the 1970s? The surprise attack by its Arab neighbors on Yom Kippur in 1973? The cafe bombings? - that does do something to your psyche, but that hasn't stopped Israel negotiating for peace. They have negotiated in good faith, returning land for peace with Egypt and Jordan. The PLO terrorists even "negotiated" (Arafat got a Nobel Peace a Prize before thumbing his nose at the world) - becoming Fatah which recognized Israel's right to exist. Of course their merging with Hamas, an internationally recognized terrorist group which does NOT recognize Israel and is pledged to destroy it, has Israel saber-rattling. But note the last paragraph - that Israel was helping Gaza develop a gas field. Oh, those mean Israelis.

Remember the Operation Cast Lead massacre? Remember the apartheid wall? Remember how many Palestinians are in Israeli jails? Remember the settlement expansion?... Get real Debra.

Interesting comment Justin..?? "why is israel even giving them money and help anyway? israel needs every penny for their own people. for schools, hospitals, roads and housing for the bete jews. why throw away money on palestinians?"

Why is the US GIVING 10 AND A HALF MILLION A DAY (3 Billion a year), needed in the US for American needs, to Israel??
How many $billions have American taxpayers paid for the past 66 years, to subsidize ISRAEL AND IT'S HUMAN RIGHTS' VIOLATIONS?

Israel pays Palestinians??? Sure, and swimming pools in every home, too.. That's something, to add insult to injury!!

Why do Arabs always think they are entitled to the whole Middle East, while all the other nations are entitled to none?

I am sick and tired of the hateful Arab regimes warring with each other and cursing West infidels on one hand and at the same time being cry-babies when they come to the same West to beg for more money.

"Why do Arabs always think they are entitled to the whole Middle East, while all the other nations are entitled to none?"... What an absurd comment Bob, can't you do better than that?

Thanks for posting Carrie and Jess for the forward.
The Idf is threatening always all people in the world... and will continue as far as US is supporting IDF with money which is badly needed for amricans and using Vitoes for protection and support.
