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".

Syria Celebrates 37 Years to Yom Kippur War

Bashar Assad places flowers on Unknown Soldier's tomb during ceremony marking war's anniversary. Syrian general says 1973 campaign broke 'the invincible Israeli army myth'

While Israelis slowly come to grips with the panic and chaos that weighed down the first days of the Yom Kippur War, Syrians are celebrating 37 years to the campaign "that broke the invincible Israeli army myth."

Syrian President Bashar Assad laid flowers on the Unknown Soldier's grave on the war's anniversary Wednesday.

A ceremony marking the anniversary was attended by Assad, the Syrian defense minister and military chief of staff and a PLO representative. Twenty-one shots were fired. The president read out Koran verses in memory of the fallen Syrian soldiers.

General Naif al-Akel (res.) told the Syrian news agency that the 1973 battles should be viewed from an historical standpoint. "The Arabs were the initiating party and they broke the Israeli army myth," he said.

Al-Akel said he was a member of the force that climbed Mount Hermon and waved the Syrian flag.

"The liberation of the Hermon had a huge effect on the combating forces since the Israeli occupation army previously tried to re-conquer the site unsuccessfully," he said, neglecting the fact that the IDF did eventually manage to seize the Hermon before the war ended.

The general further noted that the Yom Kippur War had been the first in which Arabs showed a united front, omitting the fact that Jordan did not take part in the campaign.
