Jews and Arabs


If someone has a conscience, it doesn't matter if he is a Jew or Arab.

Zarifa Dakruk, a 68-year-old resident of Salfit, a Palestinian village on Israel's disputed West Bank, welcomes a team of visiting Israeli physicians from Physicians for Human Rights/Israel, who defy more than 15 months of violence, hatred and fear between Jews and Palestinians.

Dr. Ely Karmon of Israel-based International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism, defending Israel's assasination of Falestinians which it claims to have identified as terrorists. The Israeli government does not refer to the killings as assasinations but as "targeted thwarting."

Quoted by Samantha M. Shapiro, New York Times Magazine, December 9, 2001.

Islamic domination

It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.
