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".

10 Noam Chomsky Lies About the Arab-Israeli Wars

Paul Bogdanor has compiled a handy list of Noam Chomsky's top 200 lies on topics ranging from Israeli-Arab wars and Communism to Latin America and himself.

I compiled 40 of them that apeaking on the Israeli Arab conflict.

If he tells the truth will he survive?

What is the future for his blind followers?

1) The Lie: The only issue now is suicide bombers. And when did the suicide bombings begin?
Last year [2001], on a major scale. One year of Palestinian crimes against Israel after thirty four years of quiet.
Israel had been nearly immune. I mean, there were terrorist attacks on Israel but not from within the occupied territories.

The Truth: Suicide bombings in Israel began in 1994, less than a year after the Oslo Accords that created the Palestinian Authority. Hundreds of Israelis died in suicide bombings and other terrorist attacks from the West Bank and Gaza before the collapse of the peace process in late 2000.

2) The Lie: as soon as the current fighting began last September 30 [2000], Israel immediately, the next day, began using US helicopters to attack civilian targets. In the next couple of days they killed several dozen people in apartment complexes and elsewhere. The fighting was all in the occupied territories, and there was no Palestinian fire. The Palestinians were using stones.

The Truth: Palestinian forces were using gunfire. Reports spoke of Palestinians sniping from rooftops and inside abandoned buildings; referred to gunmen shooting at the Israelis, causing the army to send helicopter gunships to provide cover fire for rescuers; and stated that Israeli troops and Palestinian gunmen shot at each other.

3) The Lie: [In 1982] the US-backed Israeli attack on Lebanon brought the superpowers close to nuclear confrontation as Israel attacked the forces of a Soviet ally, Syria, which had not attempted to impede the Israeli onslaught.

The Truth: The superpowers did not come close to nuclear confrontation; the Soviets did not threaten war in support of Syria and barely reacted to the first Syrian-Israeli clashes.

4) The Lie: [Israel was] holding the city [of Beirut] hostage in an effort to compel the PLO to withdraw completely, as it did, to save the city from total destruction.

The Truth: Far from trying to save the population, the PLO was threatening its annihilation. Yasser Arafat warned that ìif the Israelis attempted to break into West Beirut, the PLO would simultaneously blow up 300 ammunition dumps and bring holocaust down on the city.

5) The Lie: Whether the PLO will be able to maintain the image of heroism with which it left Beirut [in 1982] is another question as Israel and its partisans desperately hope, the PLO, under conditions of dispersal and disarray, may return to random terrorism and abandon its dangerous posture of political accommodation.

The Truth: Before the 1982 war, the PLO sponsored terrorists all over the world, including neo-Nazis; made preparations to bombard Israeli cities; and committed extensive atrocities in Lebanon.242 During the war, PLO heroism included using child soldiers and placing military targets next to schools, hospitals, churches and apartment buildings.

6) The Lie: ìThe 1973 war was a clear case of an Arab attack, but on territory occupied by Israel, after diplomatic attempts at [a] settlement had been rebuffed. Hence it is hardly an undisputed historical factí that in this case the war had to do with ëthe existence of the Jewish state.

The Truth: Syria pledged to ìregain our positions in our occupied land and continue then until we liberate the whole land.239 Egypt announced: The issue is not just the liberation of the Arab territories occupied since June 5, 1967Ö [for] if the Arabs are able to liberate their territories occupied since June 5, 1967 by force, what can prevent them in the next stage from
liberating Palestine itself by force?

7) The Lie: ìIt is not even controversial that in 1967 Israel attacked Egypt. Jordan and Syria entered the conflict much as England and France went to war when Germany attacked their ally Poland in 1939 [i.e., to defend an ally].

The Truth: Israel was defending itself against forcible blockade by Egypt. Nasser had stated: We knew that by closing the Gulf of Aqaba it might mean war with Israel the objective [of war] will be to destroy Israel. Egypt had warned Israel that either it will die by strangulation in the wake of the Arab military and economic blockade, or it will die by shooting from the Arab forces surrounding it in the south, north and east. Syria and the other Arab regimes also declared that their goal was to destroy Israel.

8) The Lie: [An Israeli expert] observes that ëthe Arabsí objective of destroying the state of Israel drives them to [seek] genocide. This is a possible, but not an absolutely necessary, interpretation of such proposals.

The Truth: In 1948, the Arab League announced a war of extermination and a momentous massacre. In 1967, Syria wanted to explode Zionist existence. Iraq planned to get rid of the Zionist cancer in Palestine. The PLO vowed that ìno-one will remain alive. The 1968 PLO covenant pledged to destroy the Zionist and imperialist presence in Palestine. In 1979, the PLO warned that there will be only Arabs in this part of the world and promised to shed rivers of blood when destroying Israel.

9) The Lie: It might be noted that the boundaries of Zionist aspirations in Ben-Gurionís vision were quite broad, including southern Lebanon, southern Syria, today's Jordan, all of cis-Jordan, and the Sinai.

The Truth: The archives show that Ben-Gurion rejected expansionism: When we agreed to the Partition Plan, we accepted it in all honesty. We did this not because the plan was good or just, but because a small area received through peaceful means was preferable to us than a large area won by fighting.

The Lie: Israel and Jordan were acting in accord with a secret agreement to partition Palestine in 1947-8, both of them regarding the Palestinian leadership as a primary enemy.

The Truth: The Zionists told Jordanís King Abdallah that ìwe could not promise to help his incursion into the country, since we would be obliged to observe the UN Resolution for the establishment of two states in Palestine (Golda Meir). Israelís leaders took the unanimous view that an Arab Palestine is here to stay (Moshe Sharett) and that ìwe will not be able to agree lightly to the annexation of parts of Palestine to Transjordan (David Ben-Gurion).

More Quotes About "Palestine"

"There is no such country as Palestine. 'Palestine' is a term the Zionists invented. There is no Palestine in the Bible. Our country was for centuries part of Syria. 'Palestine' is alien to us. It is the Zionists who introduced it".

- Auni Bey Abdul-Hadi, Syrian Arab leader to British Peel Commission, 1937 -

"There is no such thing as Palestine in history, absolutely not".

- Professor Philip Hitti, Arab historian, 1946 -

"It is common knowledge that Palestine is nothing but Southern Syria".

- Representant of Saudi Arabia at the United Nations, 1956 -

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 -

"In 1590 a 'simple English visitor' to Jerusalem wrote: 'Nothing there is to bescene but a little of the old walls, which is yet remayning and all the rest is grasse, mosse and weedes much like to a piece of rank or moist grounde'.".

- Gunner Edward Webbe, Palestine Exploration Fund,
Quarterly Statement, p. 86; de Haas, History, p. 338 -

"The land in Palestine is lacking in people to till its fertile soil".

- British archaeologist Thomas Shaw, mid-1700s -

"Palestine is a ruined and desolate land".

- Count Constantine François 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 -
