  1. John DeLancy says:

    such brave “martyrs” to shoot a little girl. Meanwhile, Israeli hospitals still treat Arab children.

  2. Ben II says:

    Netanyahu will do nothing as usual, he’s a coward who’s afraid to declare war on these Islamic terrorists.

  3. Lloyd Bergner says:

    We have no peace partner. The muslims target infidels and kill without mercy.

  4. Benjamin Fox says:

    They have no respect for life as their god is the devil and he has no respect for life, that means they and he are one in the same.

  5. Witch Livni, which justification do you have now?.

  7. Robin Rosenblatt says:

    Population transfer is the only solution

  8. Nacha Sara Leaf says:

    While we were enjoying a peaceful and elevating Shabbos here, Noam ben Michal (age 9) was shot by a terrorist in the Israeli town of Psagot. Another terrorist was spotted in the nearby town of Kochav Yaakov, a place where loved ones dear to me live. The entire area, in the south of Shomron, is on high alert. Please pray for the safety of all our people there and say tehillim for the recovery of Noam ben Michal!!

  9. I want to hear the terrorist filth have been caught and shot immediately. dead.

  10. Shelley Sherman Dube says:

    Our prayers go out to this little girl and her family

  11. Marsha Roth says:

    One animal caught! Get the other! 3 shots through the chest and hold the knife to his throat! Send them to their 72, or however many, virgins ASAP! I'm sure their Allah will be proud that a 9 year old child's life meant nothing to these animals! Telling these animals to kill makes Allah an animal himself! The Koran says kill all the Infidels! It's okay to rape & kill women & children! Read the Koran! And they call this a religion! It should be burned and all of these crazy people put in jail, never to be freed to be among civilized people!

  12. shalom, *praying* *lots of love*david …Awsome *cartoon**loTs of love*david

  13. Miriam Maor says:

    My son was on active duty this shabbos, as he is every other shabbos at least! He spent Friday night on high alert ( read patrols every hour) and shabbos morning guarding people who decided to take a hike near jenin, so they had to Lein everything at mincha. With all the high alerts, still stuff happens, and our boys are mosur nefesh to protect us! May we all be safe!

  14. Nacha Sara Leaf says:

    Miriam Maor : Kol ha'Kavod to your son and every Chayal/Chayelet!! May Hashem protect every single precious Jewish neshama

  15. If you mean transfer them 6 feet under, then I couldn't agree more!

  16. Claude Hassan says:

    Qu'atand le Gvt pour rearmer les populations en danger,des territoires? faut il d'autres victimes

  17. stvmrks says:

    Revenge now

  18. Deja vu. Here is another nail in the coffin of the "peace process". There are many other reasons why we can NOT make peace with these animals. 1. No "east Jerusalem as their capital. 2 No return of the "refugees". 3. No return to the pre-1967 auscwitz borders. 4. No stop to settlement buildings. 5. Must have a demilitarized arab state, if the "two state solution" is implemented. 6. No contiguous arab state. 7. History IS the best teacher, abbas must learn that the Jews have returned to their historical homeland to end the arab occupation of our land. Livni may have other reasons as well and I hope she will remember ALL of them why arab transfer to jordan may be the best possible solution at hand.

    IDFSpokesperson any updates on the person(s) that shot the 9yo girl? CC: TeachESL

  20. Fallout911 says:

    TeachESL Thank God she’s ok. Those border towns would actually benefit from English style CCTV security.

  21. TeachESL says:

    Fallout911 I can’t imagine that they don’t have cameras.

  22. Fallout911 says:

    TeachESL I hope lol

  23. Yechiel Baum says:

    was it worth the trip to the UN and Washington for Nethanyahu? There was no beneficial result for Israel. Chaval on the expense.

  24. Isadore says:

    Pray to G-d to take His revenge.

  25. Benjamin Fox says:

    Demonic islamist don't care about life, so, shoot to kill and stop the non-sense.
