Nick Rahall

I’m not going to tell the Palestinians how to arrange themselves. If they want to have their own entity and their own parliament as they do today, that’s fine. If they want to connect to Jordan, which has a very big Palestinian population, and vote in the Jordanian government, that’s fine.
Naftali Bennett
The Palestinian Arabs will have their autonomy, we will have our security. We shall live together.

We now should hope and pray for a peace process. We’ve had good negotiations with both sides. Those are going to continue; those are going to be a commitment by the president and something that we’re going to work hard on. And we all hope, for the sake of Israeli children and Palestinian children, that we do have peace.
Nikki Haley
You still can’t find Israel on a map of the Middle East in a Palestinian schoolbook.

The Palestinian national movement is not an Islamic religious movement.
Tzipi Livni
Economic support from the rest of the Arab states to the fledgling Palestinian Authority in the West Bank is virtually non-existent.

Bradley Whitford
When there is a Palestinian state, it will absorb hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria and Lebanon, because these states will simply expel all of these refugees.
Avigdor Lieberman
I want the State of Israel to remain a Zionist, Jewish and democratic state. There is nothing ‘far’ or ‘ultra’ about those ideals. I also advocate the creation of a viable Palestinian state.
Avigdor Lieberman
Just ten of the Jewish billionaires on this Earth have more than enough to transform the occupied territories into heaven. We can put the ‘pal’ back in Palestinian.
Roseanne Barr
The Palestinian people do not beg the world for a state, and the state can’t be created through decisions and initiatives. States liberate their land first and then the political body can be established.
Ismail Haniyeh
It’s not good for Israel to have a Palestinian state in the heart of Israel.
Ayelet Shaked
Palestinian violence is not a response to the capture of the West Bank and Gaza. Palestinian nationalism’s roots are not so shallow.

Only weeks after Oslo began, when nearly all the world and most of Israel was drunk with the idea of peace, I argued that a Palestinian society not constrained by democratic norms would be a fear society that would pose a grave threat to Israel.
Natan Sharansky
I understand the importance of political power, so I will use my strength and influence to convince as many people as I can within the party and outside the party that a Palestinian state is bad news for Israel.
Danny Danon
The highest pay cheque my mother ever received funded the building of a nursery school in Shepherd’s Bush – the school cost well over three times the money she donated to the making of the film ‘The Palestinian.’ Unsurprisingly this always goes unmentioned in the press.
Joely Richardson
Now, when we say we want peace, what we want is really for our Palestinian neighbours to have a demilitarized state next to us that recognizes the Jewish State. We’re willing to recognize their state, the Palestinian state. But we ask them to recognize the Jewish state.
Benjamin Netanyahu
God willing, we shall come to a stage where the world looks at the Palestinian question, and Palestinian rights on Palestinian national soil, as well as the questions of the occupied Syrian and Lebanese territories. These are the bases on which peace will be built.
Hussein of Jordan
The Muslim world is deeply hurt by the campaign of violence initiated against our Palestinian brothers.

Jimmy Carter

It simply cannot be disputed that for decades the Palestinian leadership was more interested in there not being a Jewish state than in there being a Palestinian state.

Tzipi Livni
I understand the importance which the Palestinian society attributes to the issue of prisoners.
Ehud Olmert
I went to Iraq because I wanted to see what one year of occupation had done to Iraqi society, and I went to the West Bank and Gaza Strip because I wanted to see what three generations of occupation had done to Palestinian society. I found a lot more hopelessness and despair in Palestine.
Michael Franti
In my view, Arafat is the only Palestinian in the world that isn’t willing to have an independent Palestinian state.
Silvan Shalom
When I made my first trip to Israel as a member of Congress, not only did I meet with the Israeli president and prime minister, but I also traveled to Ramallah to meet with the prime minister of the Palestinian Authority. That’s what being a member of Congress is about.
Lee Zeldin
I can’t admit to myself that the creation of a Palestinian state won’t happen. What I know is that with each passing year it gets more and more difficult to happen, not least because there is more and more bloodshed, generation upon generation.
David Miliband
The international community and Israel have the same opinion regarding the Hamas government. We don’t say we are going to boycott it forever. We say the Hamas government must abide by the obligations the Palestinian Authority has signed.
Moshe Katsav
On the other hand, if the free world is concerned with how a new Palestinian leader governs, then the peace process will have a real chance to succeed.
Natan Sharansky
Palestinian children deserve the same right to be free in their own land as Israeli children in their land. A two-state solution will finally bring Israelis the security and normalcy to which they are entitled, and Palestinians the sovereignty and dignity they deserve.
Denis McDonough

Mahmoud Abbas
Egyptians are always and will always be supportive of their Palestinian brothers, all Palestinians.

Peter Bergen
I want to separate from the Palestinians. I want them to have their independent, separate state on a contiguous territory, and I want Israel to exist, of course, as a Jewish state in its own territory, as an independent state in its own territory. The Palestinian state, the Israeli state, separate. This is my dream.
Ehud Olmert
I ask the American administration not to participate in any resolution that will double the suffering of the Palestinian people. I am convinced that the American people would not want to see the Palestinians suffer the way they do.
Ismail Haniyeh
Several hundreds of thousands of Palestinian Arabs live in slums known as refugee camps in Gaza, Judea, and Somalia. Attempts by Israel to rehabilitate and oust them have been defeated by Arab objections. Nor has their fate been any better in Arab states.
Yitzhak Shamir
In the West, they have no clue what Palestinian suffering is about, and the terrorist attacks give a wrong picture about the just Palestinian cause.
Mosab Hassan Yousef
Out-of-step intellectuals like Noam Chomsky and the deceased Edward Said have often been dismissed as crazy extremists, ‘anti-American,’ and in Mr. Said’s case even, absurdly, as apologists for Palestinian ‘terrorism.’
Salman Rushdie
I believe in the liberation of the Palestinian people.
Linda Sarsour
The word ‘Zionist’ has become toxic. To some it means believing in Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state. To others it represents a movement that led to the expulsion and marginalisation of the Palestinian people in their own land.
Layla Moran
Israel reoccupied the cities of the West Bank by a unilateral action, and reestablished the civil and military occupation by a unilateral action, and it is the one that determines whether or not a Palestinian citizen has the right to reside in any part of the Palestinian Territory.
Mahmoud Abbas
It is important that the right of Israel to exist should be respected and also the viable Palestinian authorities, in terms of political and financial situation, be supported so that both can live side by side in peace and security. That is a two-state solution.
Ban Ki-moon
At Camp David in 2000, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak offered the Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat 94 percent of the West Bank; ten years later, Ehud Olmert offered Abbas 93.6 percent with a one-to-one land swap.

In fact, the Iraqi foreign minister admitted in March 2003 that Iraqi funds were sent to families of Palestinian suicide bombers who attacked and killed innocent Israeli citizens, and also 12 Americans in Israel in 2003.
Jim Gerlach
The liberals and free people of the world will not like

The liberals and free people of the world will not like to see the Palestinian people living under siege. We have received indications from the international community that they will not stop their aid.
Ismail Haniyeh
I don’t pretend that I can imagine myself as a Palestinian.
Yitzhak Rabin
The problem with our region is that there are areas with oil and too much money, and then there are places such as south Lebanon and the Palestinian territories where there is no work, and instead of developing industry, they become dependent on oil money – this results in extremism.
Stef Wertheimer
Which Israel should we recognize? The Israel of 1917; the Israel of 1936; the Israel of 1948; the Israel of 1956; or the Israel of 1967? Which borders and which Israel? Israel has to recognize first the Palestinian state and its borders and then we will know what we are talking about.
Ismail Haniyeh

John T. Chambers
It is clear a Palestinian state is needed.
Martti Ahtisaari
I don’t really wake up in the morning and say, ‘Ohmigod, I’m a Palestinian in a Jewish state.’ I wake up in the morning and say, ‘Ohmigod, I have to make sandwiches for my kids.’
Sayed Kashua
As long as Hamas needs the support it could conceivably get from the international community through the Palestinian Authority, it has an interest in playing nice with Fatah. And Fatah has an interest in playing nice with Hamas because it needs some source of legitimacy on the West Bank.
Ian Lustick
Many critics of the Palestinians, especially those in Congress, think the current calm is merely the eye of the storm. That’s why the House of Representatives approved a foreign aid package last week that forbade the direct financial assistance to the Palestinian Authority .
Suzanne Fields
We are very serious about imposing weapons restrictions on the PFLP and other Palestinian groups operating from their camps in Lebanon.
Walid Jumblatt
For 50 years – that is, for most of my adult life – I worked tirelessly for the two-state solution in the face of countless frustrations, both on the part of the Israeli governments and the Palestinian Authority.
A. B. Yehoshua
You need to have a secure Israel, which is very clear, and you need to have a Palestinian community that feels it can have hope.
James Wolfensohn
Look, the hard-line Jewish position is based, to this day, on the idea that the Palestinian Arabs somehow or other will either accept third-class status, or they will pick up and go away. Now, this isn’t happening.
Arthur Hertzberg
And on the other hand, we see that the Israeli government is attacking that part of the Palestinian leader.

We need a Palestinian state – that is the ultimate goal, and this is the position of all the European Union.
Federica Mogherini
I find it shameful that in nearly all the universities of Europe, Palestinian students sponsor and nurture anti-Semitism.

Richard Engel
There is a constant effort of the Palestinian terrorist organizations to increase their presence and their forces in Lebanon.
Yitzhak Shamir
I’m not at all sure that Israel can determine what happens in Palestine, the Palestinian territories.
James Wolfensohn
You know, as a child of Palestinian immigrants, again, every corner of my district is a reminder of the civil rights movement, and I bring that lens, and I try to – you know, many of the Palestinians, they have called me, reached out to me via social media.
Rashida Tlaib
I support immediate financial assistance to the newly elected Palestinian president. Now, I don’t know what those numbers will be, and I don’t know how it’s going to be framed.

I definitely have my Palestinian gene. I love to play host.

The U.S. should support the historic Gaza withdrawal as a first step toward a final settlement: a permanent Palestinian state in Gaza and nearly all of the West Bank.
Lee H. Hamilton
Until the June 1967 war I was completely caught up in the life of a young professor of English. Beginning in 1968, I started to think, write, and travel as someone who felt himself to be directly involved in the renaissance of Palestinian life and politics.
Edward Said
I recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. And I have always recognized Jerusalem as the capital of the independent, fully sovereign Palestinian state that we all want to emerge from negotiations toward a true two-state solution.
Eric Garcetti
Our resolution urges all Latin American and Caribbean countries to designate al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad as terrorist organizations.
Tom Lantos
Israeli independence – what we Arabs call al-Naqba, ‘The Catastrophe’ – it created Palestinian identity more than anything else.
Sayed Kashua
Rather than undermining the Palestinian Authority, it is in Israel’s interests to strengthen it by… continuing to transfer Palestinian tax revenues and pursuing other avenues of cooperation.
Leon Panetta
The skirmishes in the occupied land are part of the war of destiny. The outcome of hundreds of years of war will be defined in Palestinian land.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
I grew up in St. Louis in a tiny house full of large music – Mahalia Jackson and Marian Anderson singing majestically on the stereo, my German-American mother fingering ‘The Lost Chord’ on the piano as golden light sank through trees, my Palestinian father trilling in Arabic in the shower each dawn.
Naomi Shihab Nye
A Palestinian state will never be created by terror.
Elliott Abrams
I do not put red lines on the Arab Palestinian nation.

I do not put red lines on the Arab Palestinian nation.
Ayman Odeh
Let me be clear: I unequivocally support a two-state solution as the path to resolution of the Israel and Palestinian conflict, with Israel as the national homeland for the Jewish people. Moreover, I reject the demonization and de-legitimization of Israel represented by the BDS narrative and campaign.
Stacey Abrams
We don’t have a state, neither in Gaza nor in the West Bank. Gaza is under siege and the West Bank is occupied. What we have in the Gaza Strip is not a state, but rather a regime of an elected government. A Palestinian state will not be created at this time except in the territories of 1967.
Ismail Haniyeh
BDS has been used as a tactic to raise awareness for Palestinian people, including women and their children.
Linda Sarsour
Israel has never hidden its goal, creating a vacuum in the Palestinian territory.
Gilles Deleuze
The Palestinian election is something that was really a turning point. It’s a mandate for peace.
Warren Christopher
I call on all the countries of the world, especially the donor countries, to speed up their contributions so that the Palestinian people may overcome their economic and social problems and proceed with reconstruction and the rebuilding of infrastructures.
Yasser Arafat
I’ve been studying Israeli army martial arts. I now know 16 ways to kick a Palestinian woman in the back.
Frankie Boyle
Palestinians also have a right not to have their homes demolished because an occupying power refuses to grant them a permit. Palestinian children should not be shot at or arrested in the middle of the night and interrogated by the Israeli military while terrified and isolated.
Layla Moran
I wanted to tell, in Hebrew, about my father who sat in jail for long years, with no trial, for his political ideas. I wanted to tell the Israelis a story, the Palestinian story.
Sayed Kashua
We expect President Bush to implement his own vision of a two-state solution, the birth of the Palestinian State and the ending of the occupation that started in 1967.
Mahmoud Abbas
I am for everyone, every single person, Israeli, Palestinian, to have equal access to opportunities, to feel safe where they live, and to really be a genuine partner and a visionary around reaching peace in that region.
Rashida Tlaib
I want the world to understand that a Palestinian state means no Israeli state. That’s the equation.
Naftali Bennett
I get to say I was alive when the first Palestinian woman went to Congress. I was alive when the first Somali woman, in a hijab, who’s black and Muslim – she’s literally an immigrant, a refugee, black and Muslim and a woman and progressive.
Linda Sarsour
If I were to have seen more people that looked like me – because I’m Palestinian and Lebanese – and talked like me and acted like me, I probably would have had a lot more hope knowing that I wasn’t alone. I really hope that this show, ‘Champions,’ gives that to people.
Josie Totah
It is difficult to think of a foreign policy issue that preoccupies and polarizes world opinion as much as the Palestinian question.
Richard N. Haass
I believe that if Israel were to put an end to the settlements in the West Bank tomorrow, as it did in Gaza, there would still be reluctance on the part of the Palestinian Authority to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish secular democracy.
Alan Dershowitz
The aim of the Palestinian terror is not just to kill Israelis but also to break the will of Israeli society in order to dictate a political solution. Israel should never yield to this terror campaign.
Ehud Barak
The Palestinian people were governing themselves before the creation of the State of Israel.
Linda Sarsour
The United States does not provide economic support funds to the Palestinian Authority to build new homes for terrorists or fund President Abbas’ anti-Israel campaign trips through Europe.
Ted Deutch
When I visited Jerusalem and the West Bank back in 2008, I was shocked by how individual Palestinians and whole Palestinian communities were treated by the Israeli government. From the illegal settlements to daily humiliations at checkpoints, the evidence of gross injustice and the human suffering it brings is indisputable.
Ed Davey
President Abbas, you’ve dedicated your life to advancing the Palestinian cause. Must this conflict continue for generations, or will we enable our children and our grandchildren to speak in years ahead of how we found a way to end it? That’s what we should aim for, and that’s what I believe we can achieve.
Benjamin Netanyahu
The Palestinian Rifle is ready and we will aim it if they try to prevent us from praying in Jerusalem.
Yasser Arafat
Through Hamas, Iran has been able to buy itself a seat on the table in talking about the Palestinian issue. And, as a result, through Hamas it does play a role in the issue of the Palestinians, as strange as that should sound.
Abdullah II of Jordan
I don’t think the Palestinian people or Afghan children or some other things I’m concerned about are at the top of other people’s agendas – not right now, when America is going through such a recession and people are suffering across the board financially. But I think all that will change.
Patti Smith
To our Palestinian neighbours, I assure you that we have a genuine intention to respect your right to live independently and in dignity. I have already said that Israel has no desire to continue to govern over you and control your fate.
Ariel Sharon
In 2006, I hung out with The Carter Center as they monitored the Palestinian elections. Nobody thought Hamas would win. Hamas did not think Hamas could win. The lion’s share of folks I spoke to who were voting for them were not actually voting for Hamas but against Fatah.
Maysoon Zayid
Jordan is the only Arab state that has provided citizenship to Palestinian refugees and integrated them. But something has to be done about the Palestinians living in refugee camps in Syria and Lebanon.
Walter Russell Mead
It is a keen measure of the fall of American influence in the region when a Palestinian leader responds to intense American pressure to go to the negotiating table by waiting to see if Arab League foreign ministers will let him take that step.
Elliott Abrams
We are not fighting against the Palestinian people, and we are not at war with Islam. We are fighting against terrorism.
Reuven Rivlin
I cannot recognise either the Palestinian state or the Israeli state. The Palestinians are idiots and the Israelis are idiots.
Muammar al-Gaddafi
The victory of Hamas is not only based on the corruptio

The victory of Hamas is not only based on the corruption of the Palestinian Authority. Hamas has a vision and a program, and this is the reason why the Palestinian people chose Hamas. However, there is no doubt that the corruption helped Hamas’s victory.
Ismail Haniyeh
It is justice and respect that I want the world to dust off and put – without delay, and with tenderness – back on the head of the Palestinian child. It will be imperfect justice and respect because the injustice and disrespect have been so severe. But I believe we are right to try.
Alice Walker
The Middle East Media Research Institute has spent decades detailing the diseased messages emanating from Palestinian TV and textbooks, instructing children in the glories of suicide terrorism against innocent Israelis.
John Podhoretz
We started the peace process on the basis of land for peace and on the basis of U.N. resolution 242 and 338,1 as well as other international decisions on achieving the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.
Yasser Arafat
There will be no solution in Lebanon until there is a general solution of Israel and the Palestinian people. There will be no solution until the Palestinian people have their own state.
David Dellinger
There is a famous saying: ‘It’s hard to be a Jew.’ It’s also hard to be a Palestinian. I know that.
Ariel Sharon
The leadership of the Palestinian Authority is not held in high regard by most of the population of the West Bank. They’re seen as living relatively high off the hog and certainly not accomplishing anything vis-a-vis the Israelis.
Ian Lustick
At the same time as we clearly condemn actions of violence by groups in Palestinian against Israel.
Jane Harman
Israel is guilty of apartheid and persecution of the Palestinian people, both inside Israel and also in the Occupied Territories.
Alice Walker
Jordan is Palestine. The capital of Palestine is Amman. If Palestinian Arabs want to find their political expression, they will have to do it in Amman.
Ariel Sharon
Occupation is the Palestinian people’s tragedy, but also Israel’s present. We must liberate both people from the occupation.
Ayman Odeh
As the Palestinian leadership never seems to pay any penalty for its words, America’s seriousness about the peace process is in doubt.
Elliott Abrams
The moment has come, as we enter the teenies, to forget the idea of a Palestinian state existing side by side with a Jewish state, and to argue and agitate instead for the only remaining, viable and democratic option: a single, secular and binational state for Israelis and Palestinians.
Mehdi Hasan
If there will be a serious Palestinian prime minister who makes a 100 percent effort to end terrorism, then we can have peace. Each side has to take steps. If terror continues, there will not be an independent Palestinian state. Israel will not accept it, if terror continues.
Ariel Sharon
Legitimate steps of self-defence which Israel takes in its war against Palestinian terror – actions which any sovereign state is obligated to undertake to ensure the security of its citizens – are presented by those who hate Israel as aggressive, Nazi-like steps.
Ariel Sharon
We have a responsibility to ensure the Palestinian Authority is abiding by U.S. law with total transparency.
Ted Deutch
Invariably, also a Palestinian state should live side by side with Israel within recognized and secure borders and the security and prosperity of the Palestinian people must be guaranteed.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
I enter negotiations with Chairman Arafat, the leader of the PLO, the representative of the Palestinian people, with the purpose to have coexistence between our two entities, Israel as a Jewish state and Palestinian state, entity, next to us, living in peace.
Yitzhak Rabin
The Palestinian conflict is the glass ceiling of Israel’s economy.
Tzipi Livni
As an activist, organizer, Palestinian, and a Muslim-American woman, I have faced many obstacles in the industry I work in. I often have to fight for my seat and representation for the communities I represent.
Linda Sarsour
Prior to the United Nations even being formed, Palestine was a country. But the right of the Palestinian people were trampled, and unfortunately, international organizations contributed to those rights being trampled.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
I have no doubt that the Palestinian Arab leadership made a mistake when it did not accept the partition plan in 1947, but I want to try to understand it.
Ayman Odeh
I believe the government of the United States should re-examine its policies in the Middle East and adopt a more balanced stance toward the Palestinian cause.
Al-Waleed bin Talal
Israel and our vicinity is an area that traditionally has little industry. The area is known for history, it’s known for religious stories, it’s known a bit for agriculture, but… neither was the Jewish population thinking about export industry, nor the Arab or Palestinian population.
Stef Wertheimer
For decades, the plight of the Palestinian people has been exacerbated by internal corruption, a lack of effective investment, and the political cynicism of the Arab states, who often did not have the best interests of the Palestinians at heart.
Edgar Bronfman, Sr.
After 9/11, we did see Palestinian terrorism in the context of all terrorism.
Elliott Abrams
Palestinian people are in love with life.
Mahmoud Darwish
I believe that Palestine is an occupied land from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River, and this is the right of the entire Palestinian people, this land.
Hassan Nasrallah
I was one of the first people in the Palestinian world, in the late 1970s, to say that there is no military option, either for us or for them, and I’m certainly the only well-known Arab who writes these things – and who writes exactly the same things in the Arab press that I say here.
Edward Said
We never had planned to hijack a ship. We never thought of any war plans outside the Palestinian lands. We wished that the program had not failed and then the warriors could have achieved their goals.
Abu Abbas
The Palestinian people choose how to fight against the occupation.
Ayman Odeh
I'm not saying I'm the only Jewish person who cares abo

I’m not saying I’m the only Jewish person who cares about Palestinian people, but unfortunately, their voices are not necessarily heard as loudly as they should be.
Julian Schnabel
It’s remarkable that the failures of the Obama, Clinton, Kerry foreign policy are not only uniting the Left and Right in Israel but might even be creating some common ground between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
Ted Cruz
I support Israel. And I have long supported a two-state solution and a democratic and secure state for the Jewish people, with a democratic and viable Palestinian state side-by-side in peace and dignity.
Keith Ellison
There are two kinds of terrorism. Rational terrorism such as Palestinian terrorism and apocalyptic terrorism like Sept. 11. You have to distinguish between the two.
Alan Dershowitz
Our Palestinian brethren continue to be slaughtered at the hands of Israelis while the world turns the other cheek.
Al-Waleed bin Talal
The biggest aggravation in the Arab world, the biggest reason for their anger toward us and the creation of those suicide terrorists, is Israel and the difficulty with the Palestinian issue.
Mario Cuomo
If there was an Oppression Olympics, I would win the gold medal. I’m Palestinian, Muslim, I’m female, I’m disabled, and I live in New Jersey.
Maysoon Zayid
I have a lot of warm feelings towards the Palestinian people.
Ayman Odeh
If you put too much pressure on the Palestinian Authority, it will collapse – it will disappear – and Israel will have to formally re-occupy the West Bank and assume responsibility for the Palestinians there. The United States doesn’t want that. Israel doesn’t really want that.
Ian Lustick
Jewish and Palestinian nationalism are virtually contemporaneous, and grew out of the disruptions that created new national movements from the ruins of the old empires / i.
Jack Schwartz
