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".

The Gathering Storm

Past year’s negative developments raise fear about future of America, Israel

By Tom Neumann

This month marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year 5771. As is customary on this holiday, we take stock of what kind of year 5770 has been and examine what the future holds for us. Based upon the barrage of bad news, I have many concerns. Chief among them is my fear for the future of both America and Israel.

The bad news for both countries is overwhelming and it might be easier to just look the other way, but that kind of head-in-the-sand approach can only portend greater calamities down the line. We know from history that we must respond or be swept away by the gathering storm.

The year 5770 demonstrated just how resilient anti-Semitism is. If we took only a small sampling of the events from the closing days of this past year we would see events in every nook and cranny of the world that remind us of the environment of the 1930s.

For example, the European Union’s trade chief and former Belgian foreign minister Karel De Gucht spoke disparagingly about the influence of Jewish power in the United States and about the inability to have a rational discussion on the Middle East situation even with the most “moderate Jew.”

Dr. De Gucht’s unfortunate comments followed quickly on the heels of comments made by a board member of the German central bank about “Jewish genes” - an echo from pre-Hitler Germany.

And who would expect the rapid growth of neo Nazis admirers of Hitler in, of all places, Mongolia. What a strange and unexpected picture to see black shirted, swastika wearing Mongolians with outstretched arms yelling “sieg heil” in the streets of Ulan Bator.

And stranger still is the bombing of the synagogue during Rosh Hashana in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. Did anyone even imagine there were still Jews there?

And back home in the US, we witnessed raw anti-Semitism on the front pages of Time magazine where a recent cover featured a Jewish star composed of daisies with a headline that read “Why Israel Doesn’t Care About Peace.”

Iran crosses nuclear Rubicon
America and the free world suffered setbacks in Turkey with the final straw being the referendum to change the Turkish constitution. This put the last nail in the coffin of any legitimate opposition to the current Islamic regime. And, sadly, it was carried out to the misguided applause of the Obama Administration.

We leave Iraq in turmoil. At the end of the day we will see that all our efforts and all the innocent lives lost were for naught. We will not have a government in Iraq that is any friendlier to the US than the one we overthrew.

The war in Afghanistan is all but lost with Hamid Karzai desperately looking for an avenue of rapprochement with the Taliban as we declare our intention to leave winning nothing.

In Pakistan, Abdul Qadeer Khan, the man who was initially vilified and arrested for selling nuclear secrets to Iran, North Korea and Libya, is now lionized and has spoken openly and credibly about running for prime minister.

Both Somalia and Yemen are about to fall probably into the hands of pro al-Qaeda forces.

Iran has crossed the nuclear Rubicon with implications for not just the region but the whole world. And the US proposes sanctions that will be toothless as long as the Russians and the Chinese stand ready to fill in the financial vacuum.

And, as 5770 comes to a close, the Obama Administration is expected to seek Congressional approval for the largest arms sale ever, $60 billion to Saudi Arabia. It is just another example of this Administration’s trending away from the special relationship between Israel and the US.

As the year ends, the media frenzy builds around the mosque at Ground Zero. The charge is that the reason behind the objection to the building of the mosque is “Islamophobia,” as though there were no legitimate objections to the building of the mosque.

However, the very same media remains completely mute on one of the most important stories of the day. The story is that the retiring US Air Force chief intelligence officer who warned that the US has lost its air power superiority and is ill prepared to stop the Russians and the Chinese from closing the gap. A very serious problem from the man who should know and yet not an ounce of ink was expended on that report.

The storm is gathering and as things are unfolding we will be ill equipped to deal with it.

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 -
