“Peace can be advanced only around the negotiating table, and not through unilateral resolutions at the U.N. General Assembly, which will only put peace further away and bring about instability,” Netanyahu said.

Yes, of course. The way to achieve peace is by calling for negotiations around the table while you are still pillaging, stealing, enslaving, buldozing homes, using white phosphorus against civilian population and the rest of it. How can anybody negotiate with this scoundrel. What an accomplished twin faced liar this man is.

Why should Abbas not return to his home in Safed? In April 1948, LEHI and Irgun miltias carried out a massacre of Arab inhabitants at Yeir Dessin as hundreds of Arab villages were over-run and homes taken over by European refugees from Nazi Germany.

The geo-political expediency of Truman and others took an Arab land by force that had no connection with Europe, but the inhabitants were made victims.

Now Netanyahu has the chutzpah to deny Abbas his birthright. It is an unacceptable position and the democratic nations of the world should stand up and make their voices heard. Injustice and contempt for international law should never be rewarded, for that leads to an even worse dictatorship.

The Right of Return is a God Given right of every one who has been forced off their homeland and Mr. Abbas has NO authority to wager the right of the Palestinians people.

What Israel does best, killing defenseless people.
If Palestine were a real military power, Israel would tremble in fear.

Not sure what news you are looking at, virtually everyone in the media, excluding Fox and the Wall Street Journal, has an anti-Israel bias. Some to more degrees that others.

Israel has every right to defend itself by whatever means it deems necessary, this is a war where a country’s survival is at stake. The Arabs have had multiple chances to sue for peace and have failed, Israel will continue to wait it out until someone comes along who is genuinely interested on peace and not driving them into the sea, whether by military means or out breeding the Israelis.

Another Palestinian murdered by the Israelis. How many more until the UN finally puts sanctions on Israel and stops their shameful treatment of Palestinians?

Ridiculous.

If ISrael wanted dead Palestinians, there would be a lot more dead Palestinians.

If you don’t understand what I mean, look at Syria, where the government has killed 30,000 of it’s own people, or Turkey, which has killed over 40,000 Turkish Kurds over the last decade.

With Israel’s military might, and the provocation of Palestinian missiles and mortars, they could easily have killed 100x as many Palestinians if that were their intention.

Absurd.

if Palestinians don’t want an Israeli response, they should stop trying to kill Israeli civilians.

Too hard for you to understand? Perhaps we could find a 4th grader to explain it to you.

Just shameful the world just sits and watches innocent people being killed in cold blood. No doubt there is so much anti semetism spreading in this world.

You are absolutely correct, the loss of innocent life is shameful. Thousands of innocent lives have been lost in Tibet thru Chinese oppression, in Chechnya thru Russian oppression, in Darfur thru Sudanese oppression, and in Rwanda thru Congolese oppression, to name but a few. The world has stood idly by while all this went on, yet Israel is judged to a different standard. So I can only think that the problem is not with what Israel does, but the problem for many people, particularly the Arabists and Liberals that flood Reuters with negativity, is that Israel exists. Well let me tell you, Israel is here to stay.
