"It has to be repeated again and again: the settlements are a disaster for the Palestinians, a disaster for peace and a double and triple disaster for Israel. First, because their main aim is to make the establishment of a Palestinian state impossible, and thus prevent peace forever. Second, because they suck the marrow out of the Israeli economy and swallow resources that should be used to help the poor. Third: because the settlements undermine the rule of law in Israel, they spread the cancer of fascism and push the whole political system to the right."
"The European renaissance was thus propelled by the spread of enlightenment, culture, and civilization from Muslim Moorish ruled Spain and Portugal to the remainder of Europe. And this was expedited by the translation of African/Arab texts on theology, medicine and the sciences into Spanish, French, English, Portugese, and German (all of them retaining Arabic terms today)."

"If the near unanimity of the ICJ's decision was a rebuke to Israeli-US legal arguments, then Buergenthal's clear acceptance of substantial portions of the decision indicates the breadth of the international consensus holding that the wall is itself a barrier to peace. Should the US obstruct eventual deliberations at the Security Council about the Court's verdict, or veto a resolution to enforce the decision, it will have a difficult time finding a legal justification for doing so."
"From the start of Israel's occupation of the Palestinian territories in 1967, Israel has used force as a tool in "handling" the Palestinians living there. Palestinian land was taken by force. Palestinian water was taken by force. The Palestinian public was prevented from expressing its rejection of the occupation--mainly by force. Hundreds of thousands of Palestinian young people were put in Israeli prisons, including thousands of individuals held without charge."
"The two groups found that Arab and Muslim passengers typically faced long interrogations and extensive luggage searches, and were also regularly subjected to body and strip searches, had items including computers confiscated, were kept in holding areas and were escorted directly on to the plane."
"If the future State of Palestine succeeds, the conflict may end without a press release or final handshake. If it fails, then Israel, the military superpower of the Middle East, has all of the brute force necessary to defend its borders from any future hostile attack."
"Pakistan’s former chief of the Army, General Aslam Beg said in an October 25 interview that the Jundullah terrorist outfit is backed and financed by the US. General Beg said that since the US faces imminent defeat in Afghanistan it was getting desperate, hence its attack on Iran through Baluchistan. General Beg said that the US wanted to instigate sectarian conflict between Iran and Pakistan that would prove deadly for the Ummah. He said the US aim was to ease pressure on its forces in Afghanistan."
"The world media are shedding tears for the Tibetan people, whose land is taken from them by Chinese settlers. Who cares about the Palestinians, whose land is taken from them by our settlers?"
