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 of us means the destruction of Israel. We are preparing for an all out war, a war which will last for generations.

~Yasser Arafat~
Throughout his authorized biography (Alan Hart, Arafat: terrorist or peace maker) Arafat asserts at least a dozen times: "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".

Forget Turkey: Israelis Discover Greece

Israelis shun Turkey, tens of thousands head to Greece for holiday season, with Rhodes, Crete and Kos most popular islands.

by Danny Sadeh

Turkey – out, Greece – in. Unofficial data collected by travel agents shows that the Greek islands were a big hit for Israelis during the holidays, replacing Turkey as the most popular tourist destination.

An estimated 300,000 Israelis who have traveled abroad for the holiday season, and some 50,000 of them made Greece and Cyprus their destination of choice. The most popular destinations were Rhodes and Crete, which saw a 60% increase in the number of Israeli visits during the month of September.

"After years of being considered too expensive compared to Turkey's club-hotels, Rhodes and Crete have become extremely sought after," a travel agent told Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper. "The Greeks, on their part, are trying to be accommodating by cutting prices and giving the Israelis what they want more than anything: All-inclusive packages."

Travel agents noted there has been virtually a 500% rise in Israeli bookings to the Island of Kos and a 250% increase in trips to Thessaloniki during the holiday period.

Yossi Petal, director of the Israeli Travel Association, said, "People have quickly gotten over the Turkey problem and found many alternatives. Israelis have spread out across many destinations, but without a doubt the biggest winners have been Greece and Cyprus."

Other destinations that have cashed in on the Turkey boycott during the holiday season were the city of Burgas in Bulgaria, Barcelona, Italy and the United States, particularly New York.

As for Turkey, August saw a 90% drop in Israeli trips to the country compared to August 2009.
