Quotes and Sayings

About the Region, Islam and cultural totalitarianism...

    Let us be honest with ourselves: Israel is surrounded by neighbors that have waged repeated wars against it. Israel’s citizens have been killed by rockets fired at their houses and suicide bombs on their buses. Israel’s children come of age knowing that throughout the region, other children are taught to hate them. Israel, a small country of less than eight million people, look out at a world where leaders of much larger nations threaten to wipe it off of the map. The Jewish people carry the burden of centuries of exile and persecution, and fresh memories of knowing that six million people were killed simply because of who they are. Those are facts. They cannot be denied.

    — Barack Obama, Address by Barack Obama, President of the United States of America at the General debate of the 66th Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations (New York, 21 September 2011)
