"...it is Iran which has constantly indicated that it will participate in a dialogue with the US in an atmosphere of equality and mutual understanding and respect. However, Washington has not done anything to win the trust of the Islamic Republic. Instead, it has catered to the demands of Israel, intensified its sanctions and inflated its rhetoric....As long as Washington is surrounded and politically manipulated by serpentine Zionists, there is little hope they may engage in any meaningful dialogue with the Islamic Republic....Anyway, as the Persian saying goes, Iran cannot and should not go down into a well with the rotten rope of Washington."
"The reality is that the White House is stuck with an Israeli government, with or without Netanyahu, that rejects an agreement with the Palestinians. As tensions flare again on the Israel-Gaza border – threatening an Israeli attack, just as occurred in the run-up to the last Israeli election – it looks disturbingly like four more years of the same."
"The split was exacerbated by the Tea Party fanatics. It seems that every few generations the American nation is afflicted by a new wave of insanity – the anti-Anarchist hysteria after WWI, McCarthy after WWII, the Tea Party now. To its immense credit, America has a knack of overcoming these waves. But the Tea Party killed Romney, in spite of all his desperate flip-flopping."
"Israel's drive to rid the West Bank of as many Palestinians as possible while cowing the rest into submission has been especially hard on children. Between 500 and 700 children are arrested every year, and many suffer lasting psychological damage as a result. Children are also traumatized when their home is raided by the army. In a typical raid, masked Israeli soldiers in full combat gear break into a home after midnight with their guns pointed, often accompanied by dogs. As the terrified children look on, they ransack the house and, if they are bored, vandalize it."
"For months now, Palestine has been missing from the agenda of Israel and the entire world. Palestine? Peace? What Palestine, What peace? And while the world stares at Iran like a hypnotized rabbit at a snake, settlements are enlarged and the occupation deepened, and we are sailing proudly towards disaster....And that is not at all a comic book story."
