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".

Iran Says Higher-Enriched Uranium Stockpile Rising

Senior official says Islamic Republic has increased its stockpile of 20% enriched uranium, showing it is pursuing sensitive process even as major powers are trying to coax it back to nuclear talks.

Iran has increased its stockpile of 20% enriched uranium, a senior official said on Wednesday, showing it is pursuing the sensitive process even as major powers are trying to coax it back to nuclear talks.

European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton suggested last week that talks between six powers and Iran, stalled for a year, could resume at a three-day session in Vienna in mid-November.

Iran welcomed the overture in principle but said it would want to know the exact nature of talks before they can start.

Iran's atomic energy chief said it had not been officially informed of any detailed EU proposal and said enrichment, the key worry for countries which suspect Iran of trying to develop the means to make nuclear weapons – was continuing apace.

"So far almost 30 kg of 20% fuel has been produced," Ali Akbar Salehi, director of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, told the student news agency ISNA. "They have not informed us of an official date (for talks). It has just been a media announcement."

Iran, which says it is refining uranium only for an eventual network of civilian nuclear power plants, announced it was refining uranium to 20% fissile purity in February, up from 3.5% previously.

It says the process is needed to power a medical research reactor. Western critics say Iran lacks the means to convert the 20% material into reactor fuel rods and is more likely advancing toward 90% enrichment suitable for bombs.

Iran seeks supply of fuel
An International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report last month said Iran had produced 22 kg of 20% uranium.

Talks between Iran and the "P5+1" powers – UN Security Council permanent members Russia, the United States, China, France and Britain, plus Germany – seemed to make headway a year ago on the topic of a nuclear fuel swap but then stalled, leading to harsher international sanctions against Iran.

Abolfazl Zohrevan, deputy secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, said on Monday that talks could resume "as soon as tomorrow" if the subject of the negotiations is made clear.

Iran has said it is willing to suspend its high-level enrichment if it is guaranteed a supply of fuel for its medical reactor, but it insists it has a sovereign right to peaceful nuclear technology including an enrichment program.

Washington, Iran's foe since the 1979 Islamic revolution, has led a global push for tougher sanctions on Iran which have been tightened since June, in an effort to force Tehran to curb its enrichment activities.
