Shmuel's remarks about stopping the world about hate, murders, etc. really confuses me. If one takes a child, from birth, teaches the child that up is down, black is white, to hate a people group is good, then what must be done? Correction by force if necessary, bringing the topic to the world exposing the ones who teach and encourage to kill and destroy because it is good. Or, cover ones head up and hope all will just go away. I don't think so!

Answer to Martel
Simply not talking about reality does not mean that reality goes away. In other words,if Arab Muslims commit murder in the name of their God, does that mean we should not call it what it is - evil murder? The logic of Schmuel & Martel are twisted & puts the blame on the realist audence, rather than on the actors. The audience will stop talking about the Arab Muslim hateful acts, when they stop their actions - not the other way around.

Thank G-d we finally have a prime minister with correct values! Hashem should bless him with the ability to lead the Jewish people toward peace and self-acceptance. We need to be PROUD of who we are, and of our land, because G-d gave it to us!!

Israel and the Jews are and always will be a blessing to America, and if our government contiues to ignore this bibical fact they will bring the wrath of God upon all our heads. The nations who blesses Israel will be blessed, those nations who curse her, will be cursed.

Twisting the truth
we still havent worked it out yet. When we stop trying to convince the world that the arabs are bad and trying to stoke up hate for them so as to get america and the west to go kill them. then maybe they will leave us alone.

shmuel's answer to crime:
If we stop trying to convince the world that murderers are bad maybe they will leave us alone and no longer murder. What a profound thinker is Shmuel.....!

Convey This Message To the UN
Good video clip! This message should be conveyed to the UN Assembly so that they will veto the unilateral formation of a Palestinian State, if the meeting is not over yet.
Arab Muslims are well represented in the Knesset.

Loosing the war on the propaganda battle field
A speech by Netanyahu, no matter how eloquent, will not prevent the influx of anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic propaganda. So far, we Jews are losing this very important war on the propaganda battle field. Do we understand the consequences of winning or losing in this war? Most frustrating is that the anti Semitic propaganda is based mostly on lies, which we must uncover to the world without delay, since no one else should or will do this work for us. But so far nothing has been done in this vital area. In my opinion, only a powerful and effective department or ministry of propaganda under government control may bring positive changes to this battle. This department should be equally important as the ministry of defense, because money productively spent for this cause might prevent not only unneeded military spending, but also lives. So where is this much needed organ? The current situation shows us that this department does not exist, or it doesn’t work as it should. This fact demonstrates unacceptable lack of understanding of this very important job by the Israel’s government and this issue must be immediately addressed. We have enough talented people to organize the job in this department, all what it needs is a proper attention of the Israel’s government. We have to change this dangerous situation; let’s wake up before is too late.

Mr. Netanyahu spoke eloquently and intelligently. It would be a great plus if his speech could be given in every legislature in every country around the world.

It can be a plus if people would send it to elected officials around the world
