1. "Our strength consists in our speed and in our brutality. Genghis Khan led millions of women and children to slaughter—with premeditation and a happy heart. History sees in him solely the founder of a state. It's a matter of indifference to me what a weak western European civilization will say about me. I have issued the command—and I'll have anybody who utters but one word of criticism executed by a firing squad—that our war aim does not consist in reaching certain lines, but in the physical destruction of the enemy. Accordingly, I have placed my death-head formation in readiness—for the present only in the East—with orders to them to send to death mercilessly and without compassion, men, women, and children of Polish derivation and language. Only thus shall we gain the living space (Lebensraum) which we need. Who, after all, speaks to-day of the annihilation of the Armenians?"
Author: Adolf Hitler
2. "Adalah semua orang Dukuh Paruk–termasuk Srintil–mereka tidak tahu apa-apa tentang sistem atau jalinan birokrasi kekuasaan. Dalam wawasan mereka semua priayi adalah sama, yakni tangan kekuasaan. Setiap priayi boleh datang atas nama kekuasaan, tak peduli mereka adalah hansip, mantri pasar, opas kacamatan, atau seorang pejabat dinas perkebunan negara esperti Marsusi. Dan ketika kekuasaan, menjadi aspek yang paling dominan dalam kehidupan masyarakat, orang Dukuh Paruk seperti Srintil tidak mungkin mengerti perbedaan antara polisi, tentara, dan pejabat perkebunan. Semuanya adalah tangan kekuasaan dan Srintil tidka mungkin bersikap lain kecuali tunduk dan pasrah."
Author: Ahmad Tohari
3. "The Arab-Israeli conflict is also in many ways a conflict about status: it's a war between two peoples who feel deeply humiliated by the other, who want the other to respect them. Battles over status can be even more intractable than those over land or water or oil."
Author: Alain De Botton
4. "And in this respect, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been a tragedy, a clash between one very powerful, very convincing, very painful claim over this land and another no less powerful, no less convincing claim."
Author: Amos Oz
5. "They always threw their arms around and hugged me while crying our Yiddish endearments. Yet none of them believed in God. They believed in social justice, good works, Israel, and Bette Midler. I was nearly thirty before I met a religious Jew."
Author: Anne Lamott
6. "As a Jew, it is my historic responsibility to defend the Jewish people. I feel this responsibility for the survival of the Jewish people. We're not going to accept any decision by anybody else about security of the State of Israel. It is our role and only our role."
Author: Ariel Sharon
7. "I am so sorry to hear of Asher's passing. I will miss his scientific insight and advice, but even more his humor and stubborn integrity. I remember when one of his colleagues complained about Asher's always rejecting his manuscript when they were sent to him to referee. Asher said in effect, 'You should thank me. I am only trying to protect your reputation.' He often pretended to consult me, a fellow atheist, on matters of religious protocol.{Charles H. Bennett's letter written to the family of Israeli physicist, Asher Peres}"
Author: Asher
8. "My father is sure that Israel keeps the Holocaust from happening again. I worry that it might hasten its recurrence."
Author: Ayelet Waldman
9. "God gave the Israelites the Promised Land but told them they'd have to take what was theirs in fierce battle. Why? Probably one reason was so they'd develop the strength to keep it once they conquered it."
Author: Beth Moore
10. "I will shake the house of Israel among all the nations, as one shakes a sieve, but not a pebble will fall to the ground. Amos 9:9"
Author: Beth Moore
11. "When a person is evoked for who she is, not who she is not, the most often result will be the inner healing of her heart through the touch of affirmation.Jesus said you are to love one another as I have loved you, a love that will possibly lead to the bloody, anguish gift of yourself, a love that forgives seven times seven, that keeps no record of wrong. This is the criterion, sole norm, the standard of discipleship in the New Israel of God."
Author: Brennan Manning
12. "It doesn't serve an American interest. It really doesn't really serve Israeli interests - it serves the interests of the political party that's getting the votes of the settlers on the West Bank."
Author: Chris Matthews
13. "All questions of right to one side, I have never been able to banish the queasy inner suspicion that Israel just did not look, or feel, either permanent or sustainable. I felt this when sitting in the old Ottoman courtyards of Jerusalem, and I felt it even more when I saw the hideous 'Fort Condo' settlements that had been thrown up around the city in order to give the opposite impression. If the statelet was only based on a narrow strip of the Mediterranean littoral (god having apparently ordered Moses to lead the Jews to one of the very few parts of the region with absolutely no oil at all), that would be bad enough. But in addition, it involved roosting on top of an ever-growing population that did not welcome the newcomers."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
14. "A 2011 OECD report showed that, over the past three decades, in Sweden, Finland, Germany, Israel, and New Zealand--all countries that have chosen a version of capitalism less red in tooth and claw than the American model--inequality has grown as fast as or faster than in the United States. France, proud, as usual, of its exceptionalism, seemed to be the one major Western outlier, but recent studies have shown that over the past decade it, too, has fallen into line."
Author: Chrystia Freeland
15. "The demon say's "Do you view sexual acts between individuals of the same gender to be an abomination?"…"Do you approve," the demon says, "of marriage between individuals of differing racial backgrounds?"The demon continues without hesitation, asking, "Should the Zionist state of Israel be allowed to exist?"Question after question, I'm stumped. Even fingers crossed. The paradox: Is God a racist, homophobic, anti-semantic ass? Or is God testing to see if I am?"
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
16. "I was with a folk trio back in '63 and '64, and we traveled all across North Africa, Israel, and Europe."
Author: Creed Bratton
17. "Palestinian and Israeli leaders finally recover the Road Map to Peace, only to discover that, while they were looking for it, the Lug Nuts of Mutual Interest came off the Front Left Wheel of Accommodation, causing the Sport Utility Vehicle of Progress to crash into the Ditch of Despair."
Author: Dave Barry
18. "You don't have any communication between the Israelis and the Iranians. You have all sorts of local triggers for conflict. Having countries act on a hair trigger - where they can't afford to be second to strike - the potential for a miscalculation or a nuclear war through inadvertence is simply too high."
Author: Dennis Ross
19. "Men and women are needed whose prayers will give to the world the utmost power of God; who will make His promises to blossom with rich and full results. God is waiting to hear us and challenges us to bring Him to do this thing by our praying. He is asking us, to-day, as He did His ancient Israel, to prove Him now herewith." Behind God's Word is God Himself, and we read: "Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, his Maker: Ask of me of things to come and concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands, command ye me." As though God places Himself in the hands and at the disposal of His people who pray - as indeed He does. The dominant element of all praying is faith, that is conspicuous, cardinal and emphatic. Without such faith it is impossible to please God, and equally impossible to pray."
Author: E.M. Bounds
20. "If I could dwell where Israfel hath dwelt and he where I he might not sing so wildly well a mortal melody while a bolder note then this might swell from my lyre in the sky."
Author: Edgar Allan Poe

Author: Ehud Barak
22. "Erika mu placuci proturjeci da nije htjela ovo, nego nešto drugo. Onda se sljedeci put moraš tocnije izraziti, predlaže joj muškarac i ponovo je udara. Udarajuci je nogama po tijelu, objašnjava ženi jednostavnu jednadžbu: ja sam ja. I toga se ne sramim. Stojim iza toga što jesam. Prijeti ženi da ga mora prihvatiti takvog kakav jest. Jer kakav sam takav sam. Eriki je od udaraca napukla nosna kost i jedno rebro. Skriva lice rukama, što joj Klemmer odobrava. Ovakvo lice nije baš nešto posebno, zar ne? Ima i ljepših lica, kaže strucnjak Klemmer i ceka da žena potvrdi kako ima i ružnijih lica."
Author: Elfriede Jelinek
23. "Egymásra néztek, azzal a mozdulatlan, éles, belehatoló tekintettel, amikor két lélek komolyan hiszi: eggyé tud olvadni. Egymást keresték a másik szemében, a szeme mögött, a létezés megfejhetetlenségében s ismeretlenjében. Néma, makacs kérdéssel kutatták egymást. Mit jelent majd egyik a másiknak? Milyen lesz az élet, amit együtt kezdenek? Milyen örömöket, boldogságot, csalódást tartogatnak egymás számára a házasság hosszú, felbonthatatlan, bizalmas kettesében? És mind a ketten azt érezték, hogy még sohasem látták egymást."
Author: Guy De Maupassant
24. "I hope that Americans will give careful and well-informed thought to root causes and historical realities, in which case I think they will question why a supposedly 'legitimate' state such as Israel has had to conduct decades of war against a subject refugee population without ever achieving its goals."
Author: Ismail Haniyeh
25. "We repeat today that we are with the establishment of a Palestinian state on any liberated part of Palestinian land that is agreed upon by the Palestinian people, without recognizing Israel or conceding any inch of historical Palestine."
Author: Ismail Haniyeh

Author: Jane Harman

Author: John W. Thompson
29. "Osama bin Laden, the person, more likely serves the function of a stand-in. Compare the new terrorists with partisans or conventional terrorists in Israel. These people often fight in a decentralized manner in small, autonomous units, too."
Author: Jurgen Habermas

Author: Khalil A. Khavari

33. "Never has God given waivers to family members, just because they had bad leaders. In Jonah's time, the entire family of Israel had become unacceptable, but never has any Israelite administration been without some injustice, intolerance and alienation from God--much less today's earthly family. Even during the celebrated reign of Solomon, Solomon was multiplying wives and horses--against God's written counsel. It has always been so.Regardless, Israel was one family. They were expected to stick together whether they were in exile, or at home living in abundance. No deserters, or pious arm-folders were allowed. As Jonah discovered, no quitters were allowed. (page vi)"
Author: Michael Ben Zehabe

Author: Michael Medved
35. "When you lose reasoning you forget humanity,When you forget laughter you lose Divinity. Munindra Misra"
Author: Munindra Misra
36. "The life of Jesus recapitulates key elements in the earlier story of Israel. For a moment, as Jesus stands on the mountain giving the famous sermon, he is Moses. For a moment, answering his critics about his actions on the sabbath, he is David. For a moment, as he calls and names the twelve disciples, he is perhaps Jacob, bringing the twelve patriarchs into the world. For a moment, healing the sick and raising the dead, he is Elijah or Elisha. And so on. In the transfiguration he actually meets Moses and Elijah."
Author: N. T. Wright
37. "Goldstone has done terrible damage to the cause of truth and justice and the rule of law. He has poisoned Jewish-Palestinian relations, undermined the courageous work of Israeli dissenters and—most unforgivably—increased the risk of another merciless IDF assault."
Author: Norman G. Finkelstein
38. "Jesus says, "You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye" (Matthew 7:5). You see these dynamics when David arrives at King Saul's camp, bringing food for his older brothers. David is surprised to hear Goliath taunting the Israelites and their God. He is shocked that no one has the courage to challenge Goliath and blurts out, "Who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?" (1 Samuel 17:26). David reacts to the split between Israel's public faith and its battlefield..."
Author: Paul Miller
