Quotes About "Palestine"

Remember: Israel is bad! Its existence keeps reminding Muslims what a bunch of losers they are.
"There will be no peace until they will love their children more than they hate us."

-Golda Meir-
'If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more ‎violence. If the Jews put ‎down their weapons ‎today, there would be no ‎more Israel'‎

~Benjamin Netanyahu~
"Peace for us means the destruction of Israel. We are preparing for an all out war, a war which will last for generations.

~Yasser Arafat~
"The Palestinian people have no national identity. I, Yasser Arafat, man of destiny, will give them that identity through conflict with Israel."

~ Yasser Arafat ~
"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel. For our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of Palestinian people, since Arab national interest demand that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism".

Palestinians Terrorist Targets Israeli Children

Israel has been the target of an unprecedented Palestinian terror offensive since September 2000. As of the end of July, 2002, some 410 civilians, and an additional 179 soldiers, have been killed during this period. These figures include the murder of 89 infants, children and teenagers - from the age of four months to 19 years.

In addition, another 809 children have been seriously wounded - their lives, and the lives of their families - forever changed by the evil of terror.Each victim has a name and a face. Each victim was filled with the joy of life, with promising talent, with love and friendship - all snuffed out in one deadly moment by cowardly murderers deliberately targeting children.

We present here the victim's names and faces, and a brief description of their young lives and tragic deaths.

Israel struggle for peace with its neighbors:
"In the very midst of the onslaught launched against us now for months ...We extend our hand to all neighboring states and their peoples in an offer of peace and good neighborliness." This unequivocal Israeli statement is not new. It is taken from Israel's Declaration of Independence, read out when the state was established on May 14,1948. It is as relevant today as it was 54 years ago.

Since its very inception, Israel's existence has been threatened by Arab countries and organizations refusing to recognize its right to exist, and which have repeatedly tried to use violence to defeat it.

Finally, in 1993, it appeared that Israel's untiring effORTs to reach an understanding with the Palestinians were starting to bear fruit. In Oslo, the frozen capital of Norway, representatives of Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization held secret talks during which they agreed to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through peaceful means.

In the Declaration of Principles signed by Israeli and Palestinian Liberation Organization representatives, PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat committed himself to the following:

"The PLO recognizes the right of the State of Israel to exist in peace and security. The PLO commits itself to the Middle East peace process, and to a peaceful resolution through negotiations. The PLO renounces the use of terrorism and other acts of violence and will assume responsibility over all PLO elements and personnel in order to assure their compliance, prevent violations and discipline violators."

However, the longed-for peace and quiet did not materialize. Within two years, Palestinian violence returned, killing scores of people and terrorizing Israeli cities.

In its yearning for peace, however, Israel responded with restraint and moderation. At the Camp David summit in the summer of 2000, Israel made an offer - recognized throughout the world as unprecedented in its generosity - to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

All of Israel's governments, including the present one, have always placed the twin goals of peace and normalization with the countries of the region at the top of their priorities. Successive governments have expressed a willingness to make "painful compromises," even on territorial matters, which is clearly reflected in the peace agreements Israel signed with two Arab countries: Egypt (1979) and Jordan (1994).

Yasser Arafat refused Israel's offer, presenting Israel with a new set of demands that Israel could not accede to, since to do so would undermine the very foundation of Israel as a Jewish state.

Immediately following Yasser Arafat's return from the failed Camp David summit, the Palestinian Authority set out on its current path of violence. Since September 2000, the Palestinians - who forswore terror as a legitimate tool when they signed the Oslo accords - have again turned to terror to try and attain their goals.

The result: By the end of July 2002, 410 civilians and 179 soldiers were killed in brutal acts of terror. These figures include the murder of 89 infants, children and teenagers - from the age of four months to 19 years.*

These deaths were not accidental; they were not the collateral damage of battle; they were not children caught in the cross fire.

No, these children were deliberately targeted by terrorists who are cynically exploiting Israel's sensitivity to the lives of children, and Judaism's view of the sanctity of human life, to extract concessions.

Human society, in its long voyage from barbarism to civilization, has formulated clear rules about how to resolve the problems and conflicts that emerge between nations. One of these most basic rules - indeed one of the basic principles of international law - is the absolute prohibition against attacking unarmed civilians.

Concerning the Holy Land, the chairman of the Syrian Delegation at the Paris Peace Conference in February 1919 stated:
"The only Arab domination since the Conquest in 635 c.e. hardly lasted, as such, 22 years".

"There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent (valley of Jezreel, Galilea); not for thirty miles in either direction... One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings. For the sort of solitude to make one dreary, come to Galilee... Nazareth is forlorn... Jericho lies a mouldering ruin... Bethlehem and Bethany, in their poverty and humiliation... untenanted by any living creature... A desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds... a silent, mournful expanse... a desolation... We never saw a human being on the whole route... Hardly a tree or shrub anywhere. Even the olive tree and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil had almost deserted the country... Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes... desolate and unlovely...".

- Mark Twain, "The Innocents Abroad", 1867 -

"Palestine is a ruined and desolate land".

- Count Constantine Fran├žois Volney, XVIII century French author and historian -

"The Arabs themselves cannot be considered but temporary residents. They pitched their tents in its grazing fields or built their places of refuge in its ruined cities. They created nothing in it. Since they were strangers to the land, they never became its masters. The desert wind that brought them hither could one day carry them away without their leaving behind them any sign of their passage through it".

- Comments by Christians concerning the Arabs in Palestine in the 1800s -

"Then we entered the hill district, and our path lay through the clattering bed of an ancient stream, whose brawling waters have rolled away into the past, along with the fierce and turbulent race who once inhabited these savage hills. There may have been cultivation here two thousand years ago. The mountains, or huge stony mounds environing this rough path, have level ridges all the way up to their summits; on these parallel ledges there is still some verdure and soil: when water flowed here, and the country was thronged with that extraordinary population, which, according to the Sacred Histories, was crowded into the region, these mountain steps may have been gardens and vineyards, such as we see now thriving along the hills of the Rhine. Now the district is quite deserted, and you ride among what seem to be so many petrified waterfalls. We saw no animals moving among the stony brakes; scarcely even a dozen little birds in the whole course of the ride".

- William Thackeray in "From Jaffa To Jerusalem", 1844 -

"The country is in a considerable degree empty of inhabitants and therefore its greatest need is of a body of population".

- James Finn, British Consul in 1857 -

"The area was underpopulated and remained economically stagnant until the arrival of the first Zionist pioneers in the 1880's, who came to rebuild the Jewish land. The country had remained "The Holy Land" in the religious and historic consciousness of mankind, which associated it with the Bible and the history of the Jewish people. Jewish development of the country also attracted large numbers of other immigrants - both Jewish and Arab. The road leading from Gaza to the north was only a summer track suitable for transport by camels and carts... Houses were all of mud. No windows were anywhere to be seen... The plows used were of wood... The yields were very poor... The sanitary conditions in the village [Yabna] were horrible... Schools did not exist... The rate of infant mortality was very high... The western part, toward the sea, was almost a desert... The villages in this area were few and thinly populated. Many ruins of villages were scattered over the area, as owing to the prevalence of malaria, many villages were deserted by their inhabitants".

- The report of the British Royal Commission, 1913 -
