Gaza Violence: Some Lives Worth More Than Others

29-02-2008 19:04

"One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail." --Rabbi Ya'acov Perin in his eulogy at the funeral of mass murderer Dr. Baruch Goldstein.

"Let us not ignore the truth among ourselves ... politically we are the aggressors and they defend themselves...

Behind the terrorism [by the Arabs] is a movement, which though primitive is not devoid of idealism and self sacrifice."-- David Ben Gurion. Quoted on pp 91-2 of Chomsky's Fateful Triangle, which appears in Simha Flapan's "Zionism and the Palestinians pp 141-2 citing a 1938 speech.
