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".

Never-Ending War On The Jews - Pt. 2/4

Denial and Revenge 1948-67
"The masses cannot be mobilized by a mere appeal to fight Israel; they suffer exploitation not at the hands of the Zionists but rather at the hands of the Arab ruling classes. It is these classes, too, who since 1948 have oppressed the people of Palestine. They have kept them outside the productive process, penned them up in camps, living on the charity of the big powers and everywhere subject to special regulations. They have used racism and chauvinism to set them apart from the other Arab peoples."
- Journalist Samir Franjiyeh - Journal of Palestine Studies, Winter, 1972

The years between Israel's independence and the Six-Day War were characterized by incessant terrorist activity, carried out by Palestinians and often sponsored by Arab nations. Arab refugees from the 1948 War of Independence, located in camps in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, became a locus of anti-Israel activity. No Arab country would take them in, no Arab country would help them, so they became the responsibility of the United Nations. These angry Arabs began mounting night raids against Israelis, killing one here, raping one there.

Israel was subject to a massive wave of infiltration by Palestinian refugees from Jordan and Egypt. The infiltrators' intentions varied: some only wanted to reclaim property; others intended to steal from Jews who settled near the border; others wanted to kill Jews in revenge for their military failure of 1948. This led to the deaths of more than 200 Israelis; theft caused a considerable economic damage, and a general feeling of insecurity was created by the raids.
Both Egypt and Jordan at least initially tried to limit this phenomenon, but neither were particularly successful. The wave of attacks on Israel became more organized in the form of Palestinian Arab terrorist groups, called fedayeen (Men of Sacrifice or Suicide Fighters), who began to conduct raids against the Israeli civilian population by 1951. In spite of retaliatory attacks made by Israel, the infiltrations never stopped - although they were often interrupted for brief periods of time.

By 1954, Egypt reversed its stance completely, formally creating a battalion of fedayeen as a part of the Egyptian army forces stationed in Gaza. In Jordan the fedayeen did not have a formal status; evidence seems to indicate the Jordanian authorities were opposed to it; however the lower-ranking officials and military commanders were reluctant to block infiltrations, and the authorities either were not able or did not want to force them to.

In 1955, Nasser began importing arms from the USSR and other East bloc nations building his arsenal to confront Israel. In the short-term, however, he employed a new tactic to prosecute Egypt's war with Israel. He announced it on August 31, 1955:

Egypt has decided to dispatch her heroes, the disciples of Pharaoh and the sons of Islam and they will cleanse the land of Palestine....There will be no peace on Israel's border because we demand vengeance, and vengeance is Israel's death.

These "heroes" were the fedayeen, whose activity violated the armistice agreement provision that prohibited the initiation of hostilities by paramilitary forces; nevertheless, it was Israel, not the Arab states, that was condemned by the UN Security Council for its counterattacks.

The fedayeen operated from bases in the territories surrounding Israel: Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan. They were trained and equipped, primarily by Egyptian Intelligence, to engage in hostile action on the border and infiltrate Israel to commit acts of sabotage and murder. A bounty was offered for each Jew killed. The Arab states surrounding Israel each hoped to annex Israeli territory at some point in the future; Egypt arranged for the fedayeen to operate primarily from locations in Jordan. This would insure that Jordan bore the brunt of Israel's retaliation.

In the period 1951-1956, hundreds of fedayeen attacks were carried out against Israel; over 400 Israelis were killed and 900 injured. Fedayeen terrorism contributed to the outbreak of the 1956 Sinai Campaign.

Eventually, Syria launched a plan to subvert Israel's water supply. In order to intensify the hostilities, Syria began aiding to Palestinian terrorism. It managed the transformation of the PLO, previously a moderately successful group with political aspirations led by Ahmad Shukairy, into a full-fledged terrorist network enjoying Arab and Palestinian popular support, with Yasser Arafat's FATAH movement at its steering wheel. The PLO as we know it today was formed in late 1964. Its first attacks in February 1965 were aimed at - unsurprisingly - Israel's water installations in the north; however, they never caused much damage and the PLO remained only a minor player.

From 1949-1967 Syrian artillery regularly shelled the residents of the Hulah Valley, forcing a generation of Israeli children to sleep in underground bunkers and ride to school in armored buses. Kibbutz Gadot was shelled 400 times.

Fedayeen movements - 1960's
In 1951 the West Bank was annexed by the Jordanians and many well-to-do Palestinians became "Jordanianized," but most activists were drawn to pan-Arab populist movements which emphasized that the liberation of Palestine was part of the larger goal of changing the social and political structure of the Arab world. It was believed that participation in pan-Arab movements would enable Palestinians to regain their lost homeland.


Palestinian support for pan-Arabist movements and regimes remained strong until 1961, when the Egyptian-Syrian union failed. Pan-Arabism then became suspect. After the 1967 war, the fedayeen leadership largely disassociated itself from pan-Arabism. The Palestinian activists began identifying themselves, directly or indirectly, with new fedayeen groups - such as al-FATAH. Fedayeen encouraged Palestinians to take matters into their own hands and not rely on Arab leaders who were not serious about liberating Palestine. Their strategy stressed the independent armed struggle, making them the new heroes of the Arab world.most Palestinian activists became committed to new militant and secular nationalist groups.

Residents of Kiryat Shmona cover the severed leg of a terrorist victim. The appeal of Arabism beginning in the late 1950s and the strength of the Fedayeen movements in the 1960s and 1970s intensified opposition to the Jordanianized elite who became increasingly unpopular.

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'.".

"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 -
