  1. Mike Minoff says:

    Maybe if israel stops providing their electric and water service They may see the light

  2. Ed White says:

    then 90% of palestinians need to die

  3. so only 10% are “innocent civilians”?

  4. Best presupposition for a long-lasting ceasefire, I guess.

  5. Israel should stop all kind of help they provide to these terrorists (electricity, water, supplies, etc…). Then conduct a new poll: how many will want to really make peace with us? Unfortunately their hearts and their minds are infected from very young age, and contain only hate. There is no way to make real peace. It is a very simple problem with a very difficult solution. They want us dead and we only want to live peacefully. The two ideas cannot be attained together.

  6. In that case next time Israel must carpet bomb the whole gaza let them all be buried in their tunnels

  7. So much for innocent civilians.

  8. David Cohen says:

    Muhammad Luqman Ar-razi, do you support Israel’s right to exist? Peace will only come when both sides agree to peacefully coexist.

  9. Ashton Pinto says:

    Muslim brotherhood! All they want is Islamic world domination

  10. Matthew Okon says:

    In a related report, 10% of those polled were publicly executed.

  11. Ronnie Pleet says:

    NO LIGHT! Have been given international money for building an infrastructure and used for rockets and tunnels. They deserve nothing from Israel

  12. Tracy Ramsey says:

    I don’t think they know what “deterrence” actually means.

  13. Chaya Mindal says:

    Pretending its all about Hamas is the worst move for Israel. Its Islam.

  14. And the mantra is Save Gaza from Hamas… feeding the hand that bites you.

  15. Paul W. Howe says:

    Islamist educated of hatred & lies…

  16. Gregg Stern says:

    I’m sure that it isn’t true. Most of the respondents are more afraid of being shot as a collaborator.

  17. Orah Peer says:

    Nothing new….they are treated in our hospitals. For free & are ungrateful…future jahidis…

  18. Gary Bergen says:

    I call bull****!!

  19. Jea Nne says:

    No the simplist answer to all of this is to do what the irish did. Give israeli’s a little bit and kick the rest out permenently back to where they came from. They never got permission to create a state if the inhabitants didnt agree. They didnt agree. So as to be generous they should swap places. Oh and dont forget to block them in, cut off their water, electricity, make sure not to let them buy anything that is not palistinian and then suffocate them with road blocks and check points. Otherwise deport them all back to europe.

  20. Jea Nne says:

    Yes there seems to be rumours about stolen organs and some such….

  21. Jea Nne says:

    Whats gets me is why would anyone purposely go to such a place uninvited and put their families lives at risk. Stooooopid

  22. Orah Peer says:

    & you believe those rumors?like the one we eat our matza with their blood!!!?wake-up pple who supported those terrorist are no longer here to explain to you why is not adviced…yep rip they were considered infidels…

  23. Jea Nne says:

    Yes. You are a sad little toad. 90 percent of palistinians are jewish. Look it up toad.

  24. Jea Nne says:

    Ah another psychopath

  25. Jea Nne says:

    There’s no smoke without fire

  26. Jea Nne says:

    Well aren’t you successfully brainwashed. NEXT Christians….sure they are all your enemies. Repeat after me…

  27. Ed White says:

    not really, just review the facts. I commented on the facts as posted in this thread, The palestinians claim to not support hamas, but there it is

  28. Bomb all the Arab lands so Israel can live in peace already!
