    I had a poor opinion of Netanyahu before this interview. I now have a high opinion of him. Maybe he should show himself more on the world stage (perhaps I mean the US stage). Excellent interview.

        Mr. Piers gets annoyed when Netanyahu answer his question he doesn't wants to hear. All Mr. piers wants to hear from Netayahu was his concession of land without knowing the repercussion or he just doesn't care about the remification. too bad Mr. Piers thats not happening until Palestinian prove they are partner for peace, until Palestinian stop voting for Hamas and until Palestinian recognize Jerusalem as an undivided Capital of Israel there'll be no concession.

      Yes, Morgan's interrupting was very annoying. His need for control and need to be the center of attention is too much and took away from Benjamin Netanyahu's comments which, in my view, were stellar.

        Mr. Pierce, this new comer who is trying to make a lot of dust and prove his intelligence and command of interviews has a lot to learn about politics and common courtesy and craftsmanship of his job. He should review many hours of master interviewers such as Barbara Walters or Larry King. When you go to interview a head of a state, you should be intelligent and not interrupting if you are not hearing what you like to hear, Mr. Pierce. I bet if your were asked, you could not even point to Israel on that map! Study your subject and all political facts and learn some manners for your next interview!

He was goading Netanyahu about being "the Guy" to achieve if it is an ego issue. Netanyahu kept saying he needs a partner for peace...someone who is not bent on the destruction of his country. Morgan just blew right past this....putting all the responsibility on Israel. What a jerk.

      I wouldn't call this an excellent interview. Mr. Piers Morgan showed himself to be a terrible interviewer, trying to bully his guest to say what HE wanted to hear, with complete disregard (or maybe he is just ignorant) for history. But then what could one expect from a talent show judge?? Just because Piers Morgan has a British accent doesn't mean he is an intellectual. Shame on CNN!!!

    Piers Morgan's interview with the Isreali Prime Minister is best described as a troubling attack on Isreal. I find troubling that he made the comment that the rest of the world would view themselves as probably 'pushing Isreal away' and are in fact prepared to move on without Isreal in the peace process. Thank goodness that the Prime minister rejected that idea and reminded the one-tracked minded Piers that holding Isreal as ULTIMATELY responsible for peace in the middle east (as he implied time and time again saying the whole world is looking to Netanyahu) is not only wrong but unfairly buts blame on the party who has given concession after concession while not holding the other side to keep their part of the bargain. The entire interview shows exactly why Piers ratings have been falling.

        Ron and sky99 I TOTALLY agree. This whole interview seemed anti-semitic to me. And every time Netanyahu was saying that BOTH the Palestinians and Istrael need to do their part to come to a peaceful agreement, Piers would repeatedly come back with they question of why Netanyahu would not "make this happen" and why Netanyahu would not be the "bigger man". Well Piers, sir, it takes more than ONE party to come to an agreement. When Netanyahu tried to say that Istrael was their ancestral home land of the Bible, Piers quickly cut Netanyahu off with another question. Not once did Piers say anything about the Palestinians not keeping the peace. I never liked Piers' style of interviewing anyway because no one can get a word in edge wise. His show is a waste of CNN's time in my opinion.

      what more do you want the Palestinians to do? remember, Hamas was voted in by the Palestinian people and straight away the US and Israelis with the help of Dahlan tried to conduct a coup, engineer a blockade and then broke the ceasefitre! I am not a Hamas apologist but remember who gave them the weapons and the money, Mr. Sharon himself! I though Haaratz were so honest (no American news organisation would dare say this) when Sheik Yassin was killed, "Well done Arial, you have killed your prodigal son"

      What is the Israel and the US going to do if the whole region turns democratic? iraq was not a tremendous success as nobody who was America's man came to power!

I probably won't waste my time watching him if he can't be more fair than this.

    Dear CNN,
    It's unclear to me how you can possibly replace a legend like Larry King with someone of the likes of Piers Morgan. This evening's interview of Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was a missed opportunity to enable viewers to actually hear the point of view of an important leader. Mr. Morgan may as well have interviewed himself tonight because he did not give the PM a word in edge wise. He constantly interrupts to the point that is truly annoying to watch an interview with him. Piers- we're NOT INTERESTED IN YOUR OPINION! That's NOT your job! This was probably the worst so far! Please get rid of this guy already! Charlie Sheen is looking for an intern – couldn't think of someone better for the role.

      Dear CNN,
      I agree with DB! Piers Morgan appeared to be constantly attacking Netanyahu. He acted like he should be the prime miinister instead of Netanyahu. Piers totally ignored any of the wrongdoings of Palestinians – the family that was massacred, the rockets that are lobbed into Israel from Gaza. The security of Israel is Netanyahu's main goal, not some goal that Piers makes up for him. Hamas' vowed objective is the destruction of Israel, and Piers thinks nothing of this.

      Who picked Piers Morgan to take Larry King's place? Can't we get an American? Piers Morgan does not hold the views of many Americans, myself included. Besides the fact that I don't like Piers' opionions, I felt that he was very rude to Netanyahu and was frequently cutting him off. I think Netanyahu handled him with a great deal of grace - more than he deserved.

    I agree with others on this post, Piers Morgan did not treat the President of Israel respectfully. The continued interruptions and challenges made the show more about Piers Morgan than President Netanyahu. Did Piers feel a challenge to Mr Netanyahu to "step up to the plate and make a peace concession" was going to suddenly happen on national TV. More hubris please.

    I think for many of us who've lived in pre-defined bordered countries it's very hard to envision the right to be a settler outside the borders–may be in Mars. But the right for a "promised land" beyond the green line is just unfair and unacceptable. Why such unfair practices are received with such favorable votes in the US? Is it a matter or religion? I can't imagine any other reason. This is strictly about the settlers- not Israel.

      Please don't confuse the "green line" with a border. The green line is the armistice line set at the end of the 1948 War of Independence bought about when the nascent State of Israel was attacked by 6 Arab armies. What will be the final border remains to be seen when and if the Palestinians decide to make peace.

        "If and when the Palestinians decide to make peace?" Are you kidding me? The real truth is that Israel has never been serious about peace. They've never agreed to allow Palestinians the right to return, Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital, or to stop building settlements on stolen Palestinian land. These are basic in the establishment of peace, and under international law, absolutely within the Palestinian's legal rights.

        Exactly! Every time you hear one of those pro-Palestinian loudmouths pontificate about the "1948 borders" or the "1967 borders", you can stop them right away and ask "what borders?". There are no borders. There are only cease-fire lines. By definition that means they are temporary and fluctuating depending on how long the parties will take to sit down, agree on where the borders will be and sign the peace treaty that will seal the deal. That's the way it's been done since the beginning of time. But the Palestinians think they are special. They are owed everything. They have done nothing wrong. It was "their" land (it wasn't) and they want it "back" (how can you claim back something that you never had before for the simple reason that you were not even a State yet?) That's the definition of being delusional. So there you have it. Have fun interrupting anyone you hear utter "1967 borders". There are no such borders. And the more the Palestinians wait, the more the borders move east. It's their choice. One last note: there was not a single Jewish settlement in 1967. Always waiting for a better deal has been the Palestinian strategy, and it's been and still is the wrong one. Time to cut your losses and make a deal.

        IF is the correct and most important word.

        Some people want to grant a murder pass to the PLO and the vast majority in the US won't buy your delusion.

        The reason the US supports Israel is not due to any type of 'lobbying', its because Israel is in the right and we understand the truth about the aggressive nature of its genocidal neighbors.

        You may fool a few uninformed or your fellow-travelers, but most folks get the basic facts and know who the intransigent aggressors are in this fight...

      chai- Hi from the USA!
      Here in the USA, we have been bombarded with Israels propaganda for over 50 years.
      Part of the reason it works IS religious, but that is only one tactic The strategy has been to control the narrative , to repeat their message over and over until everyone believes it. here are some "buzz words" and phrases you hear here for decades- and you will hear them during the interview from PM Netanyhu , and again from the full time Israel apologists here and else where commenting.[ or Hasbara-ing it up]
      "Tiny Israel", "Defensive War", "Palestinian Terrorists",[or Palestinian Militants},"suicide Bombers", "The only Democracy in the Middle East", "The Jewish Homeland", "Settlers ", "Settlements", "Thousands of rockets reining down on Israel", "Security Wall", "Judea and Samaria", "Jerusalem must be the undivided Capital", Arabs who"wish to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth", "Arafat was offered everything he wanted, but refused"[a lie], "construction freeze [not]","natural growth", " they wont recognize Israel as "the Jewish State", "Iran is dangerous" ,"Iran is about to get nuclear weapons any minute, and they mean to use them on Israel,[who does Israel mean to use THEIR nuclear weapons, that they ALREADY have, on?]" "other nations are doing WORSE human rights violations", "everyone is picking on Israel", "anti-semitic","holocaust deniers"," Iran Iran IRAN IS THE PROBLEM!", "the settlements are not the problem", "the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not the problem", "they raise their children to "hate Jews", "Israel wants peace, the Palestinians don't", "they are "against building homes for Jews","Israel has made"many conssetions", "Tiny Israel", etc....
      Mr Netanyahu controlled the interview with his customary adroitness, going on and on to hit all his talking points, NOT answering questions put to him directly- Mr Morgan "interupted" him several times to try to get him back to the questions he didn't want to answer- didn't work, but I give him credit for trying,[more than Larry King would have done], It was frustrating and downright horrifying to hear Mr. Netanyahu coming right out and saying that Iran should be bombed, and furthermore the USA is the one who should do it! Not that informed people don't already know that this is his dearly held wish, but to hear him push for it over and over, truly scary
      All the billions that the US gives Israel every year is hard to swallow for many Americans, as is our UN Veto that we use to protect Israel from the consequences of her actions. Public opinion is turning against Israels policies SLOWLy, but surely. It has been said , by Mr Netanyahu himself, that the last UN veto was gotten "with great difficuly", lets hope the next is more difficult still.

Are they developing agriculture, technology and better housing, or are they buying rockets to send to Israel? How come Arafat had 6 billion dollars in his personal bank account when he died, and his adored people were living below poverty line?
        Gaza has its own autonomy. Israel pulled out. Hamas took over. What are they doing with their billions of dollars?

In fact it's also Israel's fault that the PLO was founded in 1964 when Israel lived behind the Auschwitz borders.

      Ronald, I think that you are confusing the raid on Entebbe, July 4, 1976 with Jimmy Carter's raid to rescue American hostages held by Iran a few years later. The first was extremely successful and is studied to this day in Military Academies all over the world. By contrast, the raid on Iran was botched and a total failure, and ended with US causalties. Bibi Netanyahu's brother, Yoni, was the Israeli commander on the ground and was the only Israeli army KIA. More than 120 hostages threatened with death by the Arab and German terrorists who hijacked the Air France plane and flew it to Idi Amin's Uganda, were rescued. The free world and decent people all over the world were thrilled as the good guys won one that had seemed hopeless.

    You call that an interview? I call it a Morgan rant. Unlike Larry King, Morgan seems to think that by cutting off guests mid-sentence, he can appear to "win his argument". The more controversial the subject, the more interruptions by Morgan. At the end of the hour, I definitely knew where Morgan stood on Israel, but wasn't he supposed to be interviewing Netyanyahu?

    Dear Mr. Morgan, I just watched your "Bold & Honest" interview with the Prime Minister of Israel and I was impressed with your diligent struggle to persuade Mr. Netanyahu to take "Big Steps" to bring peace between Israel & Palestine and the whole Middle East Region.

    Please, let me offer My thoughts about the TWO Options to establish "Permanent Peace" between these two Nations:
    1) The States of "Israel" and "Palestine" become "UNITED" exactly like the "United States of America" and a "New Land" will emerge. The Names of "Israel" and "Palestine" will convert to "Holly Land" that is recognized by Jews, Muslims; Christians and the United Nation.
    The Names of "Israel" & "Palestine" will become "History", but the people remain in the same area. No one will through any one in the "SEA !" and no one will kill any one for the "Promissed Land !"
    Finally, after 3000 Years of WAR and Blood Shed in "Holly Land !", these Two Disturbed Ethnics instead of Fighting & Killing each other for "LAND !", will become UNITED and make PEACE and Create a New Nation called: "HOLLIES !" that hopefully will eventually wake up and respect "GOD" and "Holly Land" and will STOP KILLING EACH OTHER FOR LAND OR ANY OTHER REASON.
    Exactly like "Americans" that are formed from Jews / Israelites; Muslims / Arabs & Palestinians; Christians / Irish / British / Europians / Mexicans / Asians; etc., the "Hollies" are formed from Ethnics of Jews, Arabs / Muslims and Christians and any one else who lives there and becomes the "Citizen of Holly Land".
    The New Government of "Holly Land" will include both "Palestinians & Israelites" as Fifty Percents Jews and 50% Arabs that could be both Muslims & Christians.
    The New Government realizes that they are there for the "People" to "Keep Peace"; and without any prejudice "Prevent any further CRIMES commited by any one".
    Hopefully, the same way that both "Israelites / Jews" and "Palestinians / Muslim Arabs" live together in the U.S.A. (New York; Los Angeles; Washington; etc." and do business with each other in peace, they can do the same thing in their own United Land and will enjoy peaceful trading and living with each other in the "HOLLY LAND".

    I believe this is the best way to bring "PEACE" between "Israelites"; "Palestinians" and the whole Middle East that as we all know affects the "World Peace".

    2) Another solution is an "Economical Solution" that "Israelites" will pay for the Land that they captured from Palestinians during the World WAR II and declared a new establishment as the state of "Israel".
    Exactly, the same way that American paid Russians and bought Alaska from them, Israelites also will pay for their "Promissed Land" and will BUY that Land from Palestinians.
    Israelites will understand that their God can NOT authorize them or their prophet "King David" to Slaughter the People who were already living in that Land since 4000 years ago! But, they can negotiate with "Palestinians Authorities" and BUY the LAND that currently, Palestinians claim to be theirs.

    Dear Mr. Morgan, I hope you find these TWO suggestions, reasonable solutions to discuss them with Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu and perhaps with Palestinians Authorities too and collect their opinions in a CNN Interview that everyone watch.
    I also suggest that CNN collect a POLL to see the opinion of people; Israelites; Plestinians and also Other Nations. We can also subcategorized the voters as: Jews; Arabs; Muslims; Christians; Bahayi Faith; American; Europian; Iranians; Asians; Others. That will be an Interesting Sociological Experiment to see the opinion of Educated people who have access to computers and can vote!

    Please, let me know. I eagerly look forward to hearing from you and witnessing the "Creation of World Peace".

    Thanks for your time & all of your considerations.

    Sincerely Yours,

      Dr. Amir, you need to learn history.
      First of all, Israelis did not capture land during WWII. In 1948 after the declaration of the State of Israel by the UN, 5 Arab countries attacked with the intent of destruction. The Arabs that lived in the area left. Israel won miraculously, and they were not allowed to return.
      Second, the majority of the land of Israel already belonged to the Jews and were bought and payed for since the 19th century.
      Third, Gaza and the West Bank were captured in 1967.
      Forth, the displacement of 600.000 Arabs in 1948 is equivalent to the expulsion of 900.000 Jews from the Arab countries where they lived, and their lands and properties were never payed for. The difference is that these Jews were absorbed by Israel and other societies they chose to live in, like the US, and other European countries. The Arabs in their infinite love for their brothers and sisters, never absorbed the Palestinians and always treated them as pariahs. From 1948 to 1967, Egypt could have very well absorbed them into their society. The same can be said of Jordan. But they have been kept isolated and used as a pawn to destroy Israel.
      The day the Palestinians change their statutes and recognize Israel's right to exist, then you can start talking about peace. Anything else is hypocrisy.

    I'm assuming that Mr. Morgan will now treat us with a similar interview of Abu Mazen during which he will display the same level of aggressively obnoxious and hostile questioning? Given what Netanyahu told him, he has now all the information he needs to grill the PA president and ask his views as to why there is still no peace. I was really impressed by the sensible arguments the Israeli Prime Minister managed to slip between Morgan's rude interruptions, as well as the way he remained cool and collected all through. I would have ended up decking Morgan. CNN would be well advised to take this idiot off the air.

    Seems that Piers Morgan, like much of the world, has his ears closed to what Netanyahu, and his country, have been saying loud and clear to the Arab Palestinians and that is "come to the table for direct negotiations; we want peace". Of course the Fatah faction of the Palestinians insists on intermediaries and preconditions, like construction freezes that make no demands on the Palestinians, while the other group representing the Palestinians, the Hamas – in its very charter – proclaims "There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors."

    As Netanyahu makes clear, Israel’s overwhelming concern is simply living in peace on the tiny strip of land that it already controls (even less after potential negotiations for which it is always prepared).

    Whenever true peace is in the offing, Israel makes huge concessions, like ceding the entire Sinai Peninsula or uprooting 10,000 of its own citizens from their homes and businesses of 30 years in Gaza.

    In stark contrast Radical Muslims, like the Hamas, reject an Israel (a very small secular democracy with 25% non – Jewish citizens) in any shape or form since fundamentalist Islam cannot tolerate non – Muslim hegemony in Israel or anywhere on the globe for that matter.
    No, Piers, it's just NOT in Netanyahu's hands to make a "bold move for peace". The dominant radical Muslim plurality among the Palestinians will settle for nothing less than the dismantling of Israel and that is a "bold move" move no Israeli PM can make.

        Rebecca you already have your prejudiced mind made up without any sense of what risks Neytanyahu and Israel have taken for peace. Peace does not come from people who hate, it comes from people who want to stop inciting hatred and want their children to live in peace. Israel does not teach their children hate nor do they strap bombs on their children. When the incitement to hate is stopped by the Muslim side, only then can there be peace.

    jjs110 is a good example of the muddleheaded posters buying Netanyahu's propaganda. Because Piers Morgan doesn't, you all start asking why CNN doesn't have a loyal American interviewing people. Typical American jingoism.

    Over 300, 000 settlers are squatting on stolen land. Jewish judge Richard Goldstone reported on this and was vilified for it. The way Israel treats Palestinians is disgraceful, and many Jews have spoken out against it. Netanyahu carries on with an anecdote about Palestians murdering Jews. Let's talk about Palestinian children grievously wounded by Israeli phosphorous attacks. Amir has it correct. Israel has gotten a pass for years for its behavior. As soon as somebody questions it,they're an anti-semite. More propaganda.

    If you believe the "ancestral homeland" logic, then you believe that any aboriginal tribe that lived in New York 4000 years ago has a right to take the city back. Do you? I wonder.

      Nothing wrong with an interviewer taking an aggressive approach but he did not seem to be listening to the answers he was given.
      Goldstone was reporting on Gaza, not the "west bank" and the overwhelming majority of those "settlers" live on land that was either public land owned previously by the Ottoman Empire (and then Jordan) or private land that Jews legally purchased; none of that qualifies as "stolen". Israel regained that land in a defensive war altogether and it was land anyway carved out of the British Mandate and given to Jordan (Jordan was given 70% of Palestine), rather than being divided up between Arabs and Jews.
      Israel actually treats the Palestinians MUCH better than they are treated all over the Middle East – in spite of the fact that they are dominated by a violent radical Muslim plurality that seeks Israel's destruction.
      Palestinian terrorists, like the Hamas, actually use white phosphorous as well, and Israel only finally went in to residential areas to pursue Hamas terrorists when there was no alternative.

      Israel regularly risks the lives of its own soldiers to pursue terrorists on the ground. However, when the Hamas was armed to the hilt by Iran and thoroughly infested the civilian neighborhoods of Gaza, Israel had no choice but to bomb from the air. Of course before bombing Israel dropped warning leaflets for civilians to evacuate – but what did the Hamas do? The Hamas deliberately moved civilians into these areas, knowing that Israel avoids shooting in the presence of civilians, but that, of course did lead to civilian casualties. The Hamas also regularly uses Red Crescent ambulances to transport weapons and explosives and that is why Israel has had to delay ambulances for inspections.
      Civilian injuries were and are the DIRECT responsibility of the HAMAS in Gaza.

      These are facts, not propaganda, and even Goldstone acknowledged that in his subsequent reports.

      Again, Israel sits on land that was either repurchased in modern times, received by international mandate from those who conquered it from other conquerors, granted it by UN resolution, or was regained in defensive wars. None of that qualifies as "stolen". Its ancient claims to the land only provide a moral basis for Israel's valid modern legal claims to its land.

      You are simply misrepresenting Abu Mazen who refuses direct negotiations and insists on stalling tactics like demanding preconditions to negotiations (Israel froze construction for 10 months, following his demands, during which time he did nothing at all). Besides, Abu Mazen is rather powerless anyway, only representing a fraction of the Palestinian Arabs; the other half are commandeered by the radical Muslim Hamas whose very charter declares: "There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors."

    wow–that was such a disgusting interview. what an obnoxious interviewer. "Palestine" has always been the legitimate homeland of the Jewish People. This comes from the Bible–the one that US Presidents take their oat of office over. They tried to impose a 2-state solution in 1948 and of course the Arab nations surrounding Israel attacked and lost more land that. It happened again in 67. Here's what i think: there should be an international colation that makes it very clear to the 'Palestinians' that if they don't stop firing rockets into Israel and recognise the Jewish homeland, then they will be removed by boat and plane and sent to antartica.

    Dr. Mr. Morgan,
    I watched with interest your interview of Netanyahu last night. I do hope that you will have the opportunity to interview him again. When you do I hope you'll be far better prepared than you were last night. There were many unexamined assumptions underlying your questions to Bibi. Netanyahu, in return, was allowed to respond to you in a reactive way. If you had educated yourself you would realize that every concession Israel has made to achieve peace has encouraged, not discouraged, terror. YOu might have asked Bibi why he continues to push negotiations in light of this terrible fact. Are you not aware that the real objection the Arabs have to the State of Israel is its very existence and indeed the presence of "infidels" in the mid east. Arabs do not really seek a "state" of their own. Indeed, the idea of a state is a modern concept somewhat foreign to their orientation. They truly seek extermination – the PLO as much as Hamas. You also might have questioned Bibi about the rational opposition to his policy of "land for peace." With more insight you might have questioned the Arab demand that even if it establishes its state it must be Judenrein. You are certainly aware of the brutal history of the PLO and Hamas – yet, you asked if Bibi would sit down and negotiate with Hamas. In retrospect, do you think negotiating with evil in the form of Hitler, for example, is sensible? Simiilarly, is negotiating with people who support the murder of their own children to murder Jewish children a moral step and do you believe such people can be trusted to keep their side of any treaty? Are you not aware that Egypt allowed guns to be smuggled into Gaza on a regular basis?
    Finally, I suggest you "bone up" in your understanding of Zionism – its main goal is NOT a Jewish State but rather acceptance of Jews by the gentile world (see Herzl's writings;read Livni's speeches etc). If you had some awareness of this fact many questions might have presented themselves to you.
    In short, you allowed Bibi to answer in a way that he thought would be acceptable to you and your audience without questioning the underpinnings of his answers (which unfortunately, accept the underpinnings of your questions).

      Chaim – why do Jews wnt Gentiles to "accept" them? So it's easier for Jews to enjoy being the slavemasters, for the Gentile, without any trouble?

      "The sole purpose of non-Jews is to serve Jews, according to Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the head of Shas’s Council of Torah Sages and a senior Sephardi adjudicator.

      “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel,” he said in his weekly Saturday night sermon on the laws regarding the actions non-Jews are permitted to perform on Shabbat."

      That rabbi is Bennie's rabbi.

        I said that Zionism's goal is to gain acceptance from the Gentiles. I am obviously not a zionist. Zionist philosophy is an assault on Torah. I meant to provide a reason for the irrational behavior of Israeli govts. that compromise and sacrifice the security of their citizens in an irrational effort to find favor with the Goyim. At the present moment in time, the most serious explanation for NOT making peace with the Arabs is largely ignored: doing so is a gamble (it's not even that since it's clear what would happen without a doubt) and is therefore an irresponsible and even criminal act on the part of the govt to even negotiate as even negotiations place Jews in danger. One further point: politicians should not be making decisions about security issues!! Only active military experts have the expertise and objectiveness to do so and they all, without any dissent and throughout all the years of the State of Israel have cautioned against "land for peace."

    Here's what happened under the Israeli Occupation yesterday:

    Settler fanatic's barbaric killing of children's horse
    Israeli terrorists open fire on West Bank village homes
    Israeli terrorist opens fire on truck
    Incursion: crops bulldozed – homes and agriculture under Israeli fire
    Israeli soldiers open fire on pedestrians – abduct 15-year-old boy
    Home invasions: Israeli troops beat up 75-year-old man – hospitalisation
    Home invasions: Israeli troops set dog on mentally-handicapped man – hospitalisation
    Night peace disruption and/or home invasions in 9 towns and villages
    3 attacks – 20 raids including home invasions – 1 beaten – 2 injured
    1 curfew – 17 taken prisoner – 17 detained – 101 restrictions of movement

    That's just a day in the life of people who live in the Illegally Occupied territories. I was there 3 weeks ago, it's a disgusting display of human rights violations

      Do Israelis sneak into Palestinian homes while they are asleep and cut the throats of babies? No, of course they don't but that is what Palestinians did last Friday and they celebrated it in Gaza by passing out candy to the children. If America had to deal with such barbarism we would see similar restrictions of movement.

      Where do you get this junk? This is pure Palestinian slander. And you completely ignore the fact – illustrated by the gory killing of the Fogel family – that if Israel didn't maintain a security apparatus in the disputed territories, such horrors would happen every night. Once again, the Palestinians have only themselves to blame. If they stopped the violence, abandoned terrorism and made peace, the Israelis would be more than glad to leave. And the occupation is perfectly legal until such time as the Palestinians accept to make peace, which they have clearly never been interested in doing. You want to talk about human rights violations? How come we're not hearing your indignation regarding the way Hamas treats the people of Gaza? I'll tell you why: you don't care about Palestinian human rights abuses. You're only interested in what you call Israeli ones, which are entirely due to Palestinian terrorism. Time to wake up.

        Exactly. "Stolen" implies that it belonged to someone else before. That is not the case here. The land belonged to no one. It was Ottoman Empire territory. Then it passed on to the British when the Ottoman Empire was defeated. Then it was split between Arabs and Jews by the UN, but the Arabs refused. They wanted it all and denied that the Jews have a strong historic link to the place, even more than they do. They attacked. They lost. The land ended up in the hands of the aggrieved party, i.e. Israel. The Arabs have only themselves to blame. The heart of the problem is their ingrained rejectionism and refusal to make any concessios. The result: they will never have any of the land they falsely claim as theirs. Happy now? Stupid is as stupid does.

    Piers looked really stupid in this interview. More like a robot simply asking questions, not listening or understanding the situation within which he put himself. He probably didn't realize Netanyahu was also talking about him when referencing the international community or the far left. Peirs just doesn't get it. His blind advocacy of one-sided responsibility was a disgrace. It would be interesting, let alone fair, for him to post the same type of accountability questions to Abbas.

      No, It was a good interview because Mr.Netanyahu managed to explain (even when Piers came with his clear own agenda) the real situation of the M.E and gave a glimpse of truth to the world to see.

Also and this was really childish, the way Morgan badgered Netanyahu with his repeated question, "Don't you want to be the hero? Do you really want to be remembered for having two terms as PM, yet did not achieve a peace deal?" OMG! That was incredibly stupid! That is like asking a child, don't you want good grades in school? etc,,It was poor form Morgan! Morgan's speech seemed pressured and it seemed he had an axe to grind. Not impressed!

    I am proud. A relative of mine, Per Anger, my mothers cousin, worked as a diplomat at the swedish embassy in the capital av Hungary. He and his employees started up the rescueing of the jews in Budapest in the world war two. He worked close to Raul Wallenberg when Wallenberg arrived to Hungary in the mission to save so many jewish lives as possible. With a lot of American dollars they where able to buy houses and shelters for the poor people in the jewish community. The jews strongest protection, of all, was after all, only a piece of paper, a swedish passport, a schutzpass. And they, Raul Wallenberg and & co, had the guts and courage too take the fight, without any weapons or protection what so ever, only the diplomatic status, against the nazis! They saved thousands and thousands of lives! That was realy something! They were truely heroes!

    And now it´s heroetime again, fore you, israelis and palistinians! Make the whole world proud of you, surprise us all! Save the people! Save your people!

    The israelis has to show their guts and courage to dare to make a permanent peace with the palastinians! And do it now! Piers Morgan is absolutely right about that, it is now the best time, ever, to make peace between the palastinians and the israelis! Take that chance, do it! The world has no patience with this conlict anymore!

    Israelis, leave the west bank of the Jordan and split Jerusalem and palestinians, recognize the right of the Israelian state to exist and to the people, to give them the right to live in peace and harmony with their neighbours and finally Hamas, stop launching missiles on Israel and do it now, or beat it! Enough is enough!

      Take a look at what happened to Gaza and southern part of lebanon when the Israeli left. Until Israel can be sure there's partner for peace and until the so-called Palestinian recognize Jersusalem as undivided capital of Israel, there'll be no territorial concession and Palestinian will have to prove that they are not going to vote of Islamist group that are calling for destruction of Israel. Bibi was right. Israel cannot make any concession until those condition are met and abu mazen is only one man while majority of Palestinian vote Hamas in Palestinian legislature and Gaza. How can there be peace while Palestinian continuosly vote for people who are calling destruction of Israel and divide the capital into two.

    agree with the comments regarding Mr. Morgan's aggressive, contemptuous, angry interview of Prime Minister Netanyahu. Quite honestly, I almost had to turn the TV off because I was so offended by his approach to the Israeli Prime Minister. I hope that CNN takes notice of these comments and provides Mr. Morgan with this feedback. He continuously cut the Prime Minister off and spoke as if he knew the situation better that Mr. Netanyahu and could solve the conflicts in the Middle East himself. If that is so, why doesn't he run for the position of Prime Minister? Oh yeah, he is not an Israeli citizen, doesn't live in that region, and is not a politician. So, stop spewing your ideas Mr. Morgan. Piers Morgan was presumptuous, arrogant, aggressive, dismissive, and ultimately extremely disrespectful in his interview. Mr. Netanyahu handled the interview with grace, intelligence, humility and did not get caught up in the aggressive format in which the interview was conducted. I'm not sure what happened to CNN that they would hire such an arrogant (potentially anti-semitic) Narcissist to replace Larry King.

    I'm not a fan Banjamin Netanyahu or right-wing politic but I have to say he's right about the risk of territorial concession. What happened to Gaza and southern part of lebanon when Israeli left need to be reconsidered and before any condition for peace Israel have to make sure that the west bank will never be safe haven for Hamas or Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Also Palestinian need to recognize jerusalem as undivided capital of Israel before peace can be achieve. Until that Israel can be suree they dont have neigbor that threaten them there'll no territorial concession. BTW it was Gazan who brought themselves their own suffering by voting for Hamas with Hamas alongside with Palestinian Islamic Jihad in place Israel have to put every blockade to prevent funds and weapon being smuggle into Gaza. All those ships with so-called peaceful activist are bogus such as the current ship load with weaponaries and Mavi Marvara who attack Israeli soldiers – the great peace activist

    Netanyahu gave you the solution for peace. Get Hamas to accept Israel. But instead of the light going off in your head DAH! you totally ignored what he said. The focus of the discussion should then have logically been how to get the world to bring Hamas to the table.
    This was a good example why people look at journalists as entertainers and not serious. Don’t let facts get in the way of a good story.
    Netanyahu explained several times in detail that you cannot negotiate with people that want to destroy you ie Hamas ie in their charter etc. and even added the analogy of negotiating with Al Qaeda but even said he would negotiate with Hamas if they accept Israel etc. But you still chose to ignore the obvious!! That would have been intelligent, unique, news worthy but I guess supporting Israel is too much for a European.

    parts of the interview. what a blast!:

    "You must have been pretty disconcerted by loosing
    Hosni Mubarak. I mean, to other people he may be a dictator. To
    Israel, he's been a pretty good friend, hasn't he?"

    "Is it right to expect countries like Iran to be transparent
    about their own nuclear programs if you're not transparent yourself?"

    "There was – to put it mildly – a raised eyebrow collectively
    around the world. First, of the horrifying nature of this attack, but
    secondly at your response. The premise of, they murder, we build. You
    ordered the building of 500 more building settlements. It's a strange
    moral equivalence, Prime Minister.
    I mean, part of the problem that you face now in Israel is perception
    around the world. Your PR is not good, as you know. When people heard
    about what happened, I think the international community completely on
    your side and the people of Israel. When they see you immediately
    ordering more settlements, I'm sure you did it to calm down the people
    as you say, a lot of that sympathy erode. People think, come on,
    there's got to be a better way of responding to this kind of thing than
    doing that."

    "When Sadat (ph) came to Jerusalem bearing concessions it
    worked. Why don't you go to Ramallah and be the big guy here? Why
    don't you go and take concessions, which are perhaps more than you're
    prepared to give right now and say, I'm calling the bluff here, not just
    as the Palestinians but as the international community.
    Because I'll tell you what would happen. The international community is
    desperate for this to work. They would come with you. And yes, there
    would be, of course, problems. Yes, there would be more outrages.
    Everybody knows that. But in the end somebody has to be the big guy
    here and that could be you, couldn't it?"

    "MORGAN: But there's no equivalence between what's happening in Israel
    and the state of the refugees in Gaza.

    NETANYAHU: It's true.

    MORGAN: They can't be. Come on.

    NETANYAHU: No. Gaza is growing now at 17 percent because we lifted all
    the restrictions –

    MORGAN: Yes, but you wouldn't want your family living there, would you?"

    " Everyone'slooking at you. The whole world is looking at Prime Minister Netanyahu
    to do something. They're looking to you to be the hero, not to be the
    villain. And I can't believe, given your love of history, given your
    position in Jewish history, that you don't want to be that guy that
    delivers what the world wants you to deliver."

    Fortunately Netanyahu was not fooled by Piers Morgan's obviously British based anti-Israel bias. Netanyahu can take care of himself. One cannot trust the Palestinians and the world fails to see it. I have found Morgan to be anti-American also. How many times have I heard him ask when America should get into some world conflict? How about England, his home country? The sum of their involvement as "helpers" is rather pitiful.

    By the way so many celebrities have been kissing up to Piers Morgan recently I have come to think perhaps I was hearing so much incorrectly. So I am happy to read here that there are those who are not happy with Morgan's style. Well, he had me fooled when he was nice to Susan Boyle so it seemed, but I am fooled no longer. His bias is in many of the interviews he does when the coverage is on world issues. Prime Minister Netanyahu is not a celebrity. Unlike yourself, Mr. Morgan, he has the fate of over 7 million people in his hands. And there you are pushing him to "be the one", (oh I could gag), to give even more concessions. I was thinking, Mr. Morgan, perhaps you could donate part of your home to an Arab family. You concede. The Arabs have never let the Jews live in peace. Let Hamas stop wanting to kill the Jews, then we can talk peace. What part of that do you not understand? I knew in advance I wouldn't like your interview but good for Netanyahu. You couldn't shake him. Ha! And to those who wrote they wish CNN would get rid of Morgan, I add my suggestion also. Not due to his interview with the Prime Minister, but for every time he suggested we Americans become involved once again in some Arab conflict where once again they are shouting their god is great slogan, shooting into the air, and jumping up and down as monkeys. Britian has plenty of Arabs. Send some of them to fix the problem in the Arab countries. If Morgan must be around can we not have him merely interview the Charley Sheen's of this world for those who want to watch that train wreck. Even then he saw the "good" in Charlie Sheen as he talked to him. Really? Good in a wife beating, abusive drunk, drug addict? Good in a wife beater? You saw good in that? Shame on Piers Morgan.

    According to polls majority of Israel are trying to seek peace and two state solution with the Palestinian while the Palestinian merely want peace when they cut Jerusalem in half and called for Israel to make territorial concession since they would like a chance to have all Israel for themselves by letting more terror cells build in the west bank. Is not what they said that matters – It is their intention and motivation that matters. And the Muslim world playing the Palestinian victim cards game while they have to say something political correct which is to recognize Israel right to exist due to international pressure. Sadly the international community believe these people who wants to destroy Israel all along. Majority of world Muslims merely wants peace with Jews when Jews and other faith live under their thumb. If you never live in Muslim country you never experience the segregation I experience in Malaysia where Islam is the state religion.

I have often wondered myself how those who claim to be pro-human rights are silent when it comes to how women are treated in Gaza and the West Bank. I have been to both places and if you are a female and older than twenty and unmarried there is something considered to be wrong with you. The process of selecting a bride is like inspecting a side of beef. There is NO dating or getting acquainted. The woman's teeth and legs are looked at and if she is a first cousin, well that does not matter. The world does not need another rogue nation of terrorists and dictators. The Palestinians have had decades to assert some legitimacy, but their rulers are always corrupt. How often do they even hold elections? It looks very unlikely that Fatah or HAMAS will ever be a part of the civilized world.

      Alexa as a proud feminist muslim woman, I don't need the so called "concern" from islamophobic racist bigots who claim they hate me and want to kill me because I am a muslim but are concerned about the way way Hamas treats me. Netanyahu's concern for Muslim women is like Hitlers concern for Jewish women

    Yes Piers was rude in interupting. Who is the guest on the show. Please show respect no matter who you are interviewing. the biggest issue I found in the whole interview was the fact that Piers thought he had the answer to peace to a 6000 year old problem. Unfortunately, his perceived high level of intelligence and grasp of the situation, came through as lacking severely in not having a clue about why there is no peace to begin with. The Arabs hate the jews and the Palestinians are kept in a constant state of oppression by their own and thus there will never, ever, ever be peace. Never, ever, ever. Let's be honest folks, peace today is only due to a very strong offence and defence. Otherwise the strong devour, overtake, kill the weak... and it goes on and on and on.. The heart of man is wicked... So Piers, seek to understand first, you have a lot to learn...

    I read some of the pro palestinians comments and am astounded how many times bloggers referred to building on stolen Palestinian land. Are they truly that ignorant. Prior to the war waged by neighbouring Arab armies the land belonged to Jordan. There never was Palestinian land. The Arab armies lost and most of the land captured was given back to countries that made peace with Israel. If the Pals really wanted peace this would have been sorted decades ago

    18/03/11– The majority of comments are right on !! At the top it says "Get to know Piers Morgan"– NO THANKS ! I've seen all I want to see of him ! It's like Jim says, HOW can the lowest form of ANY "journalist" chew up the Head of State of ANY sovereign country – and especially that of the bullied Israel ?? Denise, your word "thug" is too polite !! Carol called him a "know it all"- problem is, he knows nothing about COURTESY, respect, politeness, recognition of a head of state, WHAT good has "..long career in journalism" done him?? Did he learn it in Tehran?? Joe G., TheFOrce, Orly, – and many others, I commend you for your perceptiveness. Morgan is an insult to anything that can correctly be called journalism. As for R. Dent- I think you have a dent in your awareness of the truth. Mr. Morgan simply tried to destroy P.M.Netanyahu and his country verbally. I suggest that he and R.Dent, Chaim F, and two or three others go get immigrant visas to Iran. They'd fit in well with the madman Ahmadinejad and his genocidal plans !!! U.S. already has MAJOR problems with the MB and the CAIR !!! CNN-it 'piers you'd be wise to dump the axe-man !! Well, those are my thoughts anyway.

    Mr. Morgan,

    You got a great gig, but you will have to live to the responsibility of the job. You are not the annoying show judge any more. And let me inform you one little thing of from the Jewish history, to make you understand that one can not roll over them like many Kings of England did, when they achieved the goal, with borrowed money(hopefully you know your history); At one point one Jewish Patriarch convinced the Jews not to fight but trough prayer will get Peace and others from Got. The People of Israel are the sons and grandsons of the people escaped the Holocaust, and antisemitic Europe. They where reciting prayers to God while marched into the gas chambers. Don't expect the sons of this people to go with out a fight, just to please others which want them dead. You mention the "refuge camps of Palestinians". I am hopping even so you didn't hear from Nethaniahu what you wanted, every body else heard and understood, that this Prime Minister is not looking for his grande, but the good of the country and people. He is not of the mill spineless politician.

    keep up the good work Piers.
    Leaders of apartheid and racist regimes need to be exposed.
    Wish you had invited respected Jewish intellectuals like Noam Chomsky, Uri Avnery or MJ Rosenberg on your show and they would have the truth for Americans regarding the creation of the Zionist state and policies of oppression and genocide followed by the regimes like the current in power.
    Ask the morally upstanding and courageous patriotic Jews in Israel like Gush Shalom or Jewish Voice for Peace and JStreet in US or distinguished Rabbinic leaders from Rabbis of North America for Peace and they will expose the inhuman treatment of Palestinians and non-Jews by this regime.
    There never will be a lasting peace in the Middle East unless we Americans rethink our unconditional and blind support of this regime.

    Sure as @ Harry says 'others want them dead'. Don't make me laugh. Do you think we Americans are stupid and would continue swallowing your propaganda for all time to come. No Americans are awakening. albeit late, to the truth.

    Read 'The Kings Torah' by Rabbis Shapira and Yousef Elitzer, settlers in illegal settlements like ITAMAR founded and populated by fanatic Jewish extremists who believe that killing of non-Jewish infants is religiously permitted and even mandated. Read this book endorsed by extremist Jewish religious leaders.
    Rabbis like Meir Kahane, Shamuel Eliyahu or Yosef Eliyashiv or Arigdor Norentzal promote terrorism and violence against non-Jews with the tacit support of the regime.
    According to Rabbi Ovaida Yosef the basic function of a Goy ( a deregatory term for gentiles or non-Jews) is to serve Jews.
    Ariel Sharon was quoted by BBC in March 25,2001 saying ' Israel may have the right to put others on Trial, but certainly 'no one' has the right to put the Jewish people and the State of Israelon 'trial'.
    After the massacre & genocide during invasion of lebanon in 1982. In an interview with Amoz Oz, DAVAR, Dec 17,1982 he said" you can call me anything you like , a monster a murderer. Better a live Judeo Nazi than a dead saint'.
    'We shall start another war, kill and destroy more & more. Let them tremble. Let them understand that we are a wild country dangerous to our surroundings, not normal. We might use nuclear arms. I am willing to do the dirty work for Israel kill as many Arabs as necessary to deport expel or kill them' and he goes on and on like this.
    This has been the official stance of Israeli regime and the ultra right regime in power now. so please stop duping us Americans with you propagandist theme of posing as the innocents and the victims.

    I applaud Piers Morgan for his insight and his balanced approach to the Middle East conflict. It's hard to ask the tough questions when you are afraid to offend a guest but Piers Morgan is not afraid to ask the tough questions and he did a GREAT job interviewing Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu and also Palestinian Washington Ambassador Maen Areikat. Too bad not everyone is that balanced and tough and fair and insightful.

    Pinar defending a culture that brutalizes and oppresses women and teaches children to hate is nothing to be proud about. See, this is the difference between being free vs. enslaved. Americans critique our culture all the time and even rebuke some aspects. We are able to do that because we are individuals and not bound by group think – for the most part or unquestionable loyalty to any form. There have been many times in American history people rose up and demanded certain rights that they did not previously have granted to them. Once people have rights they are not inclined to give them up. Perhaps in your culture you do not want such freedoms, perhaps freedom intimidates you.

    Piers Morgan doesn't understand the first thing about being a Prime Minister of Israel.
    It's not about going down in history as "The Man" as he put it!! It's about making sure that Israel and the Jewish people around the world are safe. The Prime Minister doesn't care what the world thinks. The same way that Piers Morgan didn't even blink or acknowledge when Netanyahu was recounting the slaughter of a Jewish family last week, for hundreds of years the world didn't care about the slaughter of the Jews in the Crusades, Inquisition, Pogroms or the Holocaust For the first time in 2000 years the Jews have their country back and means to defend themselves.
    So Piers Morgan, anti Israel people like you (the new face of anti semitism) are out of luck this time in history.

      Piers shows no-respect and no basic manners when he is talking to a prime minister (and one that gave his life to israel)
      He tries to bash netanyahu at every opportunity and get him to answer the answers that he wants to hear – but he only gets wisdom and reality in return – Netanyahu really is a leader, and unfortunately the only one in the M.E

    Piers Morgan, I generally respect you as a journalist and admire your ability to ask the tough questions, even when those are uncomfortable. This interview however, was a blatant PR moment for the Israeli Hasbara machine and served as a mouth-piece for a man who has murdered innocent men women and children and who has participated in the strangulation of the Gaza Strip and West Bank. I wonder Piers, did you bother to meet with a member of Palestinian Civil Society? Did you tour the West Bank? Did you pass through a check point? Did you go to Ramallah and talk to a member of the Palestinian Authority? Netanyahu's main point seems to be that he cannot negotiate peace with Palestinians because they refuse to recognize Israel as a Jewish State. Why should they? Why should they acknowledge a country that does not view them as equal? A country that excludes on the basis of religion? Why should they acknowledge a state which will not define its borders? Which Israel should they acknowledge? Why should they recognize a state which "bombs them back to the stone age"?

        Karen, I know the Geneva Conventions rather well. I can assure you that Israel is the one country in the whole world that is paying the most attention to them. In contrast, Hamas (and Hezbollah) has been violating the IIIrd Geneva Conventions for the protection of Prisoners of War by refusing to let the International Committee of the Red Cross visit as they are obligated to do, the one POW they've been holding for more than four years now! And let's not forget the fact that each and every one of the close to 10,000 rockets that Hamas has been and still is firing at Israel meets the definition of a war crime as defined by Protocol I Additional to the same Geneva Conventions since it can't distinguish between civilian and military objective. On a scale of 1 to 10, Israel is at 1 and Hamas is at 15 when it comes to violating the rules of international law, so you're barking up the wrong tree. If, as it is painfully obvious, you don't know what you're talking about, would you please have the decency to keep quiet, please? I am always impressed by the fact that it seems it is the most ignorant people who tend to open their mouths the most. We have quite a few examples in the comments posted here.

I thought the PM is Israels' Ronald Reagan. I thought Morgan was an ass and is only interested in his British style voice. Could we make a trade with Israel...Obama for Netanyahu?

      NC, you seem to be a keen observer of the many facets of this conflict. So, if "Israel has been ethnic-cleansing the Palestinians for the past 63 years", as you claim, would you mind explaining how come their population keeps growing? There were 150,000 Arabs in British Palestine in 1948. They have become 1.2 million Israeli-Arabs living in the State of Israel. Another 600,000 fled during the war and 50,000 were removed for strategic reasons, and today these are somewhere between 3.5 and 4 millions of them. Where is the ethnic cleansing? Are you deaf and dumb? Incidentally, the same argument goes for the even more ridiculous accusation that Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinians. If it is, the Israelis are the lousiest and most inefficient genociders and ethnic cleansers in the history of the world! When there is genocide or ethnic cleansing, the numbers go down, not up! With their technological savvy, you can easily imagine how efficient the Israelis would be if they really wanted to commit a genocide. As it stands, the Hutus in Rwanda killed with machetes over twenty times more people during a genocide that lasted only a few weeks (800,000) than all Palestinian losses (due to their own constant attacks) encurred in the last 80 years (not even 40,000)!!!!

Re-establish the borders of 1937, and let Germany have Austria again. Or do you think that's a ridiculous idea? It's just as ridiculous as demanding a return to Israel's pre-1967 borders. Oh, and where was the world's outrage when more than 2,000 Uzbeks were slaughtered in Kyrgyzstan a few weeks after the unfortunate deaths of 9 on the Freedom Flotilla that caused such violent anti-Israel protests?

    Thanks for the new things you have discovered in your writing. One thing I want to reply to is that FSBO interactions are built after some time. By launching yourself to the owners the first weekend break their FSBO is definitely announced, prior to the masses start off calling on Friday, you create a good network. By mailing them equipment, educational products, free accounts, and forms, you become an ally. If you take a personal desire for them plus their situation, you create a solid connection that, oftentimes, pays off in the event the owners decide to go with a broker they know as well as trust - preferably you actually.
