Israeli Quotes A-Z by Author Israel Quotes by Notable People

Like Israel, New York City’s history has been defined by immigrants who come in search of freedom and the opportunity to build a better life. And like Israel, New York City has remained a target for terrorists who seek to destroy that freedom
Michael Bloomberg - Israel - America - Terrorism

The fact is, the most painful and tragic lesson of the 20th century was that regimes based on racial superiority and religious hatred can’t be trusted to keep their word to the international community.
Michael Bloomberg - Tragic - Racism

Millions of Americans have contributed to building a stronger Israel; I’ve been proud to be one of them. Last year, I went to Jerusalem to help dedicate in my father’s name a new MDA medical facility which treats people of all faiths and all nationalities absolutely equally.
Michael Bloomberg - Israel - America - Jewish

I don’t think there is an implicit obligation for the United States to follow like a stupid mule whatever the Israelis do. If they decide to start a war, simply on the assumption that we will be automatically drawn into it, I think it is the obligation of friendship to say “you’re not going to be making national decisions for us”
Zbigniew Brzezinski - America - Geopolitics - Israel - Foreign Policy - Obligation
- Stupid - War

I think the US has the right to have its own national security policy. I think most Americans would agree with that. And therefore clarity on this issue is important and especially if we commit ourselves, explicitly and bindingly, to Israel’s security.
Zbigniew Brzezinski - America - Geopolitics - Politics - Israel - Foreign Policy
- Security

The notion that somehow or another they’ll (Iran) put it in a picnic basket and hand it to some terrorist group is merely an argument that may be convincing to some people who don't know anything about nuclear weapons.
I don’t find that argument very credible, I’m not sure that people who make it even believe in it. But it’s a good argument to make if you have no other argument to make. The fact of the matter is, Iran has been around for 3000 years, and that is not a symptom of a suicidal instinct.
Zbigniew Brzezinski - Geopolitics - Israel - Politics - Threat - Iran
- Terrorism - Argument - Lies - Weapon

The Israelis have a lot of influence with Congress, and in some cases they are able to buy influence.
Zbigniew Brzezinski - America - Geopolitics - Politics - Israel - Foreign Policy - Influence - Congress


The US and Israel have demanded further that Palestinians not only recognize Israel's rights as a state in the international system, but that they also recognize Israel's abstract "right to exist," a concept that has no place in international law or diplomacy, and a right claimed by no one. In effect, the US and Israel are demanding that Palestinians not only recognize Israel in the normal fashion of interstate relations, but also formally accept the legitimacy of their expulsion from their own land. They cannot be expected to accept that, just as Mexico does not grant the US the "right to exist" on half of Mexico's territory, gained by conquest.
Noam Chomsky - Human Rights - America - Palestine - Israel - Geopolitics - Diplomacy - Mexico

Virtually all informed observers agree that a fair and equitable resolution of the plight of the Palestinians would considerably weaken the anger and hatred of Israel and the US in the Arab and Muslim worlds – and far beyond, as international polls reveal. Such an agreement is surely within reach, if the US and Israel depart from their long-standing rejectionism.
Noam Chomsky - America - Palestine - Israel - Geopolitics - Solutions - Arab - Islam - Geopolitics - Hate

I am opposed to any state with an ethnic character, not only to Israel.
Norman Finkelstein - Israel - Ethnic - Discrimination


In my opinion, the non-violent civil resistance championed by Gandhi can work in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Of course, the Israeli repression will initially be brutal, but if we do our job here in publicizing the reasonableness of Palestinian demands, I think Israel can be isolated and forced to desist.
Norman Finkelstein - Israel - Palestine - Public Relations - Opinions
- Violence

September 11 was a godsend for Israel. It could now conjoin its merciless persecution of the Palestinians with Bush’s War against Terror. But my impression is that it wasn’t altogether successful.
Norman Finkelstein - Israel - Palestine - Terrorism - Success
- 911

There's nothing Israel can do without US support. It can't breathe without US support. The US bankrolls everything, and it's just silly to think that Israel can do anything without the support.
Norman Finkelstein - Israel - Conflict - American
- Support

Judging by opinion polls, Israel has bigger problems than me. It is among the most hated countries on the planet. It should stop acting like a lunatic state. Once it carries on like a normal country, I will be happily redirect my energies elsewhere.
Norman Finkelstein - Israel - Problems -
Hate - Crazy - Insane

I think Israel, as a number of commentators pointed out, is becoming an insane state. And we have to be honest about that. While the rest of the world wants peace, Europe wants peace, the US wants peace, but this state wants war, war and war.
Norman Finkelstein - Israel - America - Europe - Terror - Insane - Honesty - Peace - War

Each of the various tactics that have been tried to get Israel to budge.. nonviolent resistance, legal accountability, BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions).. has had some measure of success.
Norman Finkelstein - Israel - Legal - Tactics - Success

They’ve (Israel) lost the battle for public opinion. They claim it’s because American Jews know too little.. I claim it’s because they know too much about the conflict, and young liberal Jews have difficulty defending the use of cluster bombs in Lebanon or supporting the Israeli settlements.
Norman Finkelstein - Palestinian - Conflict - Israeli - America - Jewish - Opinions - Knowledge


On the whole, my family had always adopted a reserved attitude toward Zionism; my great-uncle Edmond had acted on his own in generously supporting Jewish Palestine, for reasons more humanitarian and religious than political. But the devastation caused by the war and the extermination of six million Jews radically changed all of our former attitudes. The idea of a Jewish homeland acquired an intense emotional appeal; I myself became an ardent Zionist..

For two thousand years the Jews have suffered from oppression by most of the people with whom they've been in contact; and it seems inconceivable to me, for the dignity and honor of Israel, that a Jewish army or government should now play the opposite role and appear to be the oppressor, against whom a resistance movement will inevitably arise.

You ask me if we are going to hold the sword all our lives. If we have to do it we will do it, but I hope that it won’t be necessary. There are those among the Palestinians who understand that they will not be able to achieve anything by force. Those that are ready to speak peace, I am ready to talk and negotiate with, as a matter of fact I am in contact with them now.
Ariel Sharon - War - Peace - Achievement - Israel - Palestine

I have learned from experience that the sword alone cannot decide this bitter dispute in this land.
Ariel Sharon - War - Problems

We can also reassure our Palestinian partners that we understand the importance of territorial contiguity in the West Bank for a viable Palestinian state.
Ariel Sharon - Partnership - Israel - Palestine

I am not a Zionist, nor am I am a practicing Jew, but I have a great deal of sympathy for my fellow Jews and a deep concern for the survival of Israel.
George Soros - Zionist

The pro-Israel lobby has been remarkably successful in suppressing criticism. Politicians challenge it at their peril because of the lobby's ability to influence political contributions.
George Soros - Israel - Lobby - Criticism - Fund Raising - Politicians

One of the myths propagated by the enemies of Israel is that there is an all-powerful Zionist conspiracy. That is a false accusation. Nevertheless, that AIPAC has been so successful in suppressing criticism has lent some credence to such false beliefs.
George Soros - Israel - Jewish - Criticism - Enemies - Zionist


Anticipating attacks, I should like to emphasize that I do not subscribe to the myths propagated by enemies of Israel and I am not blaming Jews for anti-Semitism. Anti-Semitism predates the birth of Israel. Neither Israel's policies nor the critics of those policies should be held responsible for anti-Semitism. At the same time, I do believe that attitudes toward Israel are influenced by Israel's policies, and attitudes toward the Jewish community are influenced by the pro-Israel lobby's success in suppressing divergent views.
George Soros - Israel - Jew - Zionist
