  1. And we are suppose to make peace with these killers.

  2. THEY ARE SCUM!! These people want to eradicate the Jews and anyone who wants a decent life.

  3. Another example of the insanity of the Israeli government. When will it wake up and realize that there will never in this lifetime be peace with those Muslim/Arab barbarians?

  4. ima says:

    When terrorists are released the Torah is shamed Crime is paid with freedom and fame. Netanyahu bolstering obama in his peace to make ISrael cease is saying no to independent statehood even as terror spreads to tel aviv
    The Bedouins, drivers,walkers.

  5. Joseph Colen says:

    Killers are killers and they should be killed.

  6. Larry H. Gentry says:

    DO NOT let go of East Jerusalem, or fail to protect ALL of your borders. Re-take Gaza and expel all known and suspected terrorists. Gaza belongs to Israel. The West Bank belongs to Israel and should be retaken in all ways if true peace does not come soon.
