Israel quotes by Max Anders
#1. Moses simplifies the whole duty of Israel (and of humanity) by crystalizing the moral law into a single command to love God supremely. #Quote by Max Anders
Israel quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#2. When God shook Israel awake from her violent slumber, He said, "Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy" (Ezekiel 16:49, emphasis added). #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Israel quotes by Edgar Bronfman, Sr.
#3. The principles governing Western democracies, of which Israel rightly considers itself a part, are based on the assurance that everyone has a vote, but also that the minority needs to yield to the wishes of the majority. #Quote by Edgar Bronfman, Sr.
Israel quotes by Leif Enger
#4. But I shook my head. I just couldn't go with him. Nor could I tell him it wasn't his public mistreatment that stole my breath and blocked my tongue; it was something too mean to explain. It was the fact that Chester the Fester, the worst man I'd ever seen, even worse in his way than Israel Finch, got a whole new face to look out of and didn't even know to be grateful; while I, my father's son, had to be still and resolute and breathe steam to stay alive. #Quote by Leif Enger
Israel quotes by Hillary Clinton
#5. If the people of the Middle East are not sure what democracy means, let them look to Israel. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Israel quotes by Leon Pinsker
#6. This is the kernel of the problem, as we see it: the Jews comprise a distinctive element among the nations under which they dwell, and as such can neither assimilate nor be readily digested by any nation. #Quote by Leon Pinsker
Israel quotes by Jack Bruce
#7. The paradox of anti-Semitism is that it is invariably up to the Jews to explain away the charges. The anti-Semite simply has to make them. #Quote by Jack Bruce
Israel quotes by Walter Brueggemann
#8. Restitution costs: "He shall restore it in full, and shall add a fifth to it." Restitution costs twenty percent according to Leviticus. Guilt requires not simply equity and an even balance, but gift beyond affront. It requires surplus compensation. Such a rule is both economically shrewd and psychologically sound. Israel is required to move beyond grudging restoration, until it is "pressed down and running over. #Quote by Walter Brueggemann
Israel quotes by Michael Babcock
#9. Israel was God's chosen people, the nation whose God was the Lord. This unique status has not passed to America or to any other earthly nation. #Quote by Michael Babcock
Israel quotes by Paul Oakenfold
#10. I am here for 5 days to enjoy myself and rest. Israel is a beautiful country and the audience is full of passion and I enjoy everything there is here. #Quote by Paul Oakenfold
Israel quotes by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
#11. Our dear Imam said that the occupying regime [Israel] must be wiped off the map ... We cannot compromise over the issue of Palestine ... I have no doubt that the new wave that has started in Palestine, and we witness it in the Islamic world too, will eliminate this disgraceful stain from the Islamic world. #Quote by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Israel quotes by Ruth Wisse
#12. Palestinian Arabs [are] people who breed and bleed and advertise their misery. #Quote by Ruth Wisse
Israel quotes by Robbie Williams
#13. Tel Aviv, Israel, me, Robbie Williams. I'm coming to see you. It's like a first date. I've got butterflies in my stomache, I can't wait. I hope you feel the same way too. There will be singing, there will be dancing, there will be banter, there will be love. Mainly from me, beaming it to you, from my heart into your heads and minds. #Quote by Robbie Williams
Israel quotes by Lois Capps
#14. I simply cannot see how denying chemotherapy treatment for Palestinian children increases Israel's security or advances U.S. national interests. #Quote by Lois Capps
Israel quotes by Rick Perry
#15. It is time to change our policy of appeasement toward the Palestinians, to strengthen our ties with the nation of Israel. #Quote by Rick Perry
Israel quotes by Norman Finkelstein
#16. Israel will not reform itself because it cannot reform itself. It is contaminated at every level, not the least the judiciary, by a virulent brew of racism and arrogance freely circulating in a body politic whose immune system has collapsed. By fostering the illusion that if Israel incorporated a handful of internal administrative reforms it would heal itself, the Report conveyed and validated the utterly counterfeit image that Israel was essentially a healthy society. But a state that every couple of years launches - with overwhelming popular support and without a hint of remorse - yet another high-tech blitzkrieg against a defenseless, trapped civilian population is profoundly sick. #Quote by Norman Finkelstein
Israel quotes by Arthur L. Herman
#17. In his final year in office, Clinton decided that his contribution to Middle East peace would lie not in the removal of Saddam Hussein but in a grand attempt to resolve the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel. With this, he missed his last chance to deal forcefully with the man he was publicly committed to overthrowing. #Quote by Arthur L. Herman
Israel quotes by Michael Scheuer
#18. It's very clear from what he [Osama ben Laden] said, what his lieutenants have said, that America is not even their main enemy. We're simply in the way of what they want to do in their own world, which is to destroy police states and Israel. #Quote by Michael Scheuer
Israel quotes by Moshe Sharett
#19. Our role in Israel is a pioneering one, and we need people with certain strength of fiber. #Quote by Moshe Sharett
Israel quotes by Leila Khaled
#20. Like Mahmoud Abbas. He is not gaining anything. He puts conditions and Israel ignores them. Israel doesn't give him any hint that they will accept a single one of his conditions. Let me tell you. Arafat went to Oslo and signed [the agreement]. What did Israel do? They confined him in Muqata in one room and killed him. #Quote by Leila Khaled
Israel quotes by Lisa M. Prysock
#21. It's pretty amazing that the Lord of heaven and earth, creator of everything, the God of Jacob and Israel, the Messiah, Jesus, allows us to carry him around in our hearts! He is good and full of grace, even when we aren't. He loves us even when we mess it up. He deserves our very best! #Quote by Lisa M. Prysock
Israel quotes by Nouriel Roubini
#22. I am quite international. My background, born in Turkey. My family is a Jewish family from Iran, so I went from Turkey to Iran to Israel, and then grew up in Italy and ended up in U.S. for graduate school. So I tend to look at things from an international perspective, and I think that gives you a little bit of a broader view of what's going on. #Quote by Nouriel Roubini
Israel quotes by Bradley Whitford
#23. I heard an Israeli speaking on Palestinian human rights issues, an interesting guy, and he said 'There's no military solution to terrorism. If there were, Israel would be the safest place in the world. But there's no military solution.' #Quote by Bradley Whitford
Israel quotes by Israel S. Dudley
#24. To lose such a love, is to smell the last scent of a candle before it is blown out. Such a love does not need to be relit or rekindled.

It will find itself, in new days and new moments. And so, don't raise an anxious hand to relight what has already gone out.

In those moments alone in the dark, you will hear the sound of your heart, pounding so hard that by its very own will, it will create a spark. Follow that light, follow that love, because that love is going to lead you within, to the true foundation of love. #Quote by Israel S. Dudley
Israel quotes by Natalie Portman
#25. You know, I get much more Jewish in Israel because I like the way that religion is done there. #Quote by Natalie Portman
Israel quotes by David Brooks
#26. Israel is a country of six million people. They need the U.S. It used to be bipartisan on Israeli politics. You never messed with that relationship. The fact that [ Benjamin] Netanyahu is willing to do that, I thought would horrify voters more than it turned out it did. #Quote by David Brooks
Israel quotes by David Ben-Gurion
#27. We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population. #Quote by David Ben-Gurion
Israel quotes by George W. Bush
#28. Through centuries of struggle, Jews across the world have been witnesses not only against the crimes of men, but for faith in God, and God alone. Theirs is a story of defiance in oppression and patience in tribulation - reaching back to the exodus and their exile into the diaspora. That story continued in the founding of the State of Israel. The story continues in the defense of the State of Israel. #Quote by George W. Bush
Israel quotes by Ismail Haniyeh
#29. Israel no longer has allies in Egypt and in Tunisia, we are saying to the Zionist enemies that times have changed and that the time of the Arab Spring, the time of the revolution, of dignity and of pride has arrived. #Quote by Ismail Haniyeh
Israel quotes by Israel Shenker
#30. A [Jewish] woman could not divorce her husband, but she could petition for divorce, and the religious courts could force him to grant the divorce on grounds of impotence, denial of conjugal rights, or unreasonable restriction of her freedom-for example, preventing her from attending funerals or wedding parties. #Quote by Israel Shenker
Israel quotes by Abdallah II Of Jordan
#31. Many occasions I've sat down with Israelis to say, where do you see your country in 10 years time, and work me back, so we can figure out the synergies and the connections between Israel and the rest of the Arab world. No Israeli has ever been able to answer that question. #Quote by Abdallah II Of Jordan
Israel quotes by Michael Moritz
#32. Israel is the second Silicon Valley, and it is therefore the only other place we have chosen to expand our activities. #Quote by Michael Moritz
Israel quotes by Reza Aslan
#33. It is difficult to place Jesus of Nazareth squarely within any of the known religiopolitical movements of his time. He was a man of profound contradictions, one day preaching a message of racial exclusion ("I was sent solely to the lost sheep of Israel"; Matthew 15:24), the next, of benevolent universalism ("Go and make disciples of all nations"; Matthew 28:19); sometimes calling for unconditional peace ("Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the sons of God"; Matthew 5:9), sometimes promoting violence and conflict ("If you do not have a sword, go sell your cloak and buy one"; Luke 22:36). #Quote by Reza Aslan
Israel quotes by Norman Finkelstein
#34. I think sometimes we underestimate just how vulnerable Israel is on the public-relations front. That's why they spend so much money on propaganda. And that's why they panic every time they feel like they're losing the propaganda war. #Quote by Norman Finkelstein
Israel quotes by Sarah Palin
#35. So how's that hopey changey stuff working out for ya? #Quote by Sarah Palin
Israel quotes by Maurice H. Harris
#36. Ten are designated by the term Life or Living: - God, the law, Israel, the righteous, the garden of Eden, the tree of life, the land of Israel, Jerusalem, benevolence, the sages; and water also is described as life, as it is said (Zech. xiv. 8), "And it shall be in that day that living water shall go out from Jerusalem. #Quote by Maurice H. Harris
Israel quotes by Susan Israel
#37. When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

Lawrence Peter (Yogi) Berra #Quote by Susan Israel
Israel quotes by Zubin Mehta
#38. The amount of culture going on in a small country like Israel is amazing. #Quote by Zubin Mehta
Israel quotes by Ellen F. Davis
#39. That the Old Testament represents God chiefly as angry Judge and vicious Warrior is a false stereotype. While these images are not absent, they are more than balanced by striking portrayals of God as Lover or Husband, infatuated with Israel beyond all reason or deserving. God is not too proud to grieve terribly over Israel's unfaithfulness, nor to be giddy over her return home. ... [This covenant's] primary quality is love at the highest pitch of intensity. (pg. 77) #Quote by Ellen F. Davis
Israel quotes by Israel Gelfand
#40. I used to say: "Everything is Representation Theory". Now I say: "Nothing is Representation Theory". #Quote by Israel Gelfand
Israel quotes by Ron Ben-Israel
#41. Repetitiveness and discipline are the secrets of cake decorating. The art comes from the meticulous technique, the way it does for a dancer. #Quote by Ron Ben-Israel
Israel quotes by Michael S. Horton
#42. The Old Testament cannot really be understood apart from Jesus Christ, it is true, but neither can Jesus Christ be truly understood apart from the history of Israel. #Quote by Michael S. Horton
Israel quotes by Simone Weil
#43. The entire virtue of religious practices can be conceived from the Buddhist tradition concerning the recitation of the name of the Lord. It is said that the Buddha made a vow to raise up to himself all those who recite his name with the desire to be saved by him, into the Land of Purity; and that because of this vow the recitation of the name of the Lord really has the virtue of transforming the soul. Religion is nothing else but this promise of God. Every religious practice, every rite, every liturgy is a form of the recitation of the name of the Lord, and must in principle really have virtue, the virtue of saving anyone devoted to it with desire. Every religion pronounces the name of the Lord in its own language. Most often, it is better for people to name God in their own native language rather than in a foreign language. Apart from exceptions, the soul is incapable of completely abandoning itself in the moment if it must impose on itself even a minor effort in searching for words in a strange language, even when they know it well . . . A change of the religion is for the soul like a change of language for the writer. Not every religion, it is true, is equally apt for the correct recitation of the name of the Lord. Certain ones, without a doubt, are very imperfect intermediaries. The religion of Israel, for example, must have truly been a very imperfect intermediary for having crucified Christ. The Roman religion scarcely even deserves the name of religion. But in a genera #Quote by Simone Weil
Israel quotes by Al Gore
#44. The United States has an absolute, uncompromising commitment to Israel's security and an absolute conviction that Israel alone must decide the steps necessary to ensure that security. That is Israel's prerogative. We accept that. We endorse that. Whatever Israel decides cannot, will not, will never, not ever, alter our fundamental commitment to her security. #Quote by Al Gore
Israel quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#45. Thou must believe that God will turn thy very silence, suspension, deprivation, and laying aside, to His glory, and the advancement of the Gospel's interest. When God will not use thee in one kind, yet He will in another. A soul that desires to serve and honour Him shall never want opportunity to do it; nor must thou so limit the Holy One of Israel as to think He hath but one way in which He can glorify Himself by thee. He can do it by thy silence as well as by thy preaching; thy laying aside as well as thy continuance in thy work. #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell
Israel quotes by Anthony Hopkins
#46. Israel means war and destruction and we Americans are behind this war and I am ashamed of being American. #Quote by Anthony Hopkins
Israel quotes by Noam Chomsky
#47. In the Occupied Territories, what Israel is doing is much worse than apartheid. The South African Nationalists needed the black population. That was their workforce. The Israeli relationship to the Palestinians in the Occupied Territories is totally different. They just don't want them. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Israel quotes by Queen Noor Of Jordan
#48. Everyone I knew, including my new friends in Jordan, expressed horror at the realities of the Holocaust. But they resented, as I was growing to, how Arabs were cast as the aggressors in the dispute between Israel and the Arab countries, when it was their land that had been seized to resolve a European political problem. #Quote by Queen Noor Of Jordan
Israel quotes by George Pataki
#49. Israel has always been and must always be America's strongest ally. #Quote by George Pataki
Israel quotes by Jonathan Freedland
#50. I don't pretend that all the first Zionists wanted Israel to be a moral state. For some it was quite enough that it be a normal state. Just like everyone else. #Quote by Jonathan Freedland
Israel quotes by Benjamin Netanyahu
#51. If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel' #Quote by Benjamin Netanyahu
Israel quotes by Israel Zangwill
#52. Artistic truth is for me literally the highest truth: art may seize the essence of persons and movements no less truly, and certainly far more vitally, than a scientific generalization unifies a chaos of phenomena. Time and Space are only the conditions through which spiritual facts struggle. Hence I have here and there permitted myself liberties with these categories. #Quote by Israel Zangwill
Israel quotes by Yitzhak Shamir
#53. Israel's capital will never again be a divided city, a city with a wall at its center, a city in which two flags fly. This city, will, in its entirety, absorb immigrants, welcome pilgrims and be the eternal capital of Israel forever. #Quote by Yitzhak Shamir
Israel quotes by Israel Broussard
#54. I'm the type to over-analyze everything. If I was to rob a house, I'd have a checklist to make sure nothing goes wrong. #Quote by Israel Broussard
Israel quotes by James E. Faust
#55. In my opinion, there has never been in the history of this Church a reason for so much hope for the future of the Church and its members worldwide. I believe and testify that we are moving to a higher level of faith and activity than there ever has been. I pray that each of us will be found holding up our end of the line in this great army of righteousness. Each of us will come before the Holy One of Israel and account for our personal righteousness. We are told that he employeth no servant there. #Quote by James E. Faust
Israel quotes by Menachem Begin
#56. What kind of expression is this - "punishing Israel"? Are we a vassal state of yours? Are we a banana republic? Are we youths of fourteen who, if they don't behave properly, are slapped across the fingers? Let me tell you who this government is composed of. It is composed of people whose lives were spent in resistance, in fighting and in suffering. You will not frighten us with "punishments." He who threatens us will find us deaf to his threats. We are only prepared to listen to rational arguments. You have no right to "punish" Israel - and I protest at the very use of this term. #Quote by Menachem Begin
Israel quotes by Israel Horovitz
#57. Plays are literature: the word, the idea. Film is much more like the form in which we dream - in action and images (Television is furniture). I think a great play can only be a play. It fits the stage better than it fits the screen. Some stories insist on being film, can't be contained on stage. In the end, all writing serves to answer the same question: Why are we alive? And the form the question takes - play, film, novel - is dictated, I suppose, by whether its story is driven by character or place. #Quote by Israel Horovitz
Israel quotes by Arlie Russell Hochschild
#58. I was 13 when my parents moved to Israel, and I was put in a Scottish mission school. Ninety-nine percent of the children were Israeli ... Suddenly, I found myself speaking the wrong language, dressed in the wrong clothes, picked up by the wrong mode of transportation - an embassy car instead of a bus. #Quote by Arlie Russell Hochschild
Israel quotes by Denis McDonough
#59. Part of what makes America great is that we stand by the countries that share our values around the world. That's why throughout its history, the State of Israel has had no greater friend than the United States of America. #Quote by Denis McDonough
Israel quotes by Daniel Marques
#60. Jews were expelled to Israel, Protestants were expelled to the USA and where should the Muslims go? #Quote by Daniel Marques
Israel quotes by J.M. Darhower
#61. The war had been started, the spark already ignited when he'd appeared on that battlefield in Israel. Michael stood there, leading the warrior angels against the uprising. "Stop this, Luce." "You know I can't." "This is your last chance, brother," Michael warned. "End this right now." Luce shook his head. "No." It was then that it changed, the air shifting as the blood of his extended family splattered his clothing, matching red seeping into the sky above. Michael's expression hardened, every ounce of love and respect melting away to resentment. They #Quote by J.M. Darhower
Israel quotes by Yael Naim
#62. I don't hide my being Israeli. I say it in every interview. I put out a record with songs in Hebrew. The people who signed me have no connection to Judaism or Israel. #Quote by Yael Naim
Israel quotes by Peter Marshall
#63. Preaching after the battles of Lexington and Concord, William Stearns had said: We trust that all whose circumstance will admit of it will go. that none such will refuse to enlist in defense of his country. When God, in His providence, calls to take the sword, if any refuse to obey, Heaven's dread artillery is leveled against them, as you may see ... Cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood! (Jeremiah 48:10). Cursed is the sneaking coward who neglects the sinking state, when called to its defense - O then flee this dire curse - let America's valorous sons put on the harness, nor take it off till peace shall be to Israel. #Quote by Peter Marshall
Israel quotes by Shimon Peres
#64. Bulgaria is a true friend of Israel, that stood up to save the Jewish people 70 years ago in Europe, and who stood by throughout the terror attack that took place in Burgas last July. #Quote by Shimon Peres
Israel quotes by Steve Israel
#65. The President and I agree that Social Security needs to be preserved so that we can ensure that all Americans receive the retirement benefits they've been promised. But we disagree as to how best to fix the system. #Quote by Steve Israel
Israel quotes by Susan Abulhawa
#66. Israeli occupation exposes us very young to the extremes of our emotions, until we cannot feel except in the extreme. #Quote by Susan Abulhawa
Israel quotes by Michael McCaul
#67. The President of Iran has called for the destruction of Israel and the West and has even denied the holocaust took place. Iran and its terrorist arm Hezbollah are responsible for the current conflicts between Israel and Lebanon. #Quote by Michael McCaul
Israel quotes by Dan Shechtman
#68. When my grandchildren are older and my great-grandchildren start growing up, first of all, I want them to be in Israel. I don't want them to leave the country because they have no choice. #Quote by Dan Shechtman
Israel quotes by Anonymous
#69. PSA131.3 Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever. #Quote by Anonymous
Israel quotes by Roald Dahl
#70. I am certainly anti-Israel, and I have become anti-Semitic. #Quote by Roald Dahl
Israel quotes by Michael Oren
#71. People often ask whether Obama passes the 'kishka test:' whether he likes Israel special, not in the same way he likes Taiwan or South Korea? Does he? I think the kishka test was decided when he visited Israel. I think the reaction there was emotional and genuine. #Quote by Michael Oren
Israel quotes by Anonymous
#72. MIC5.2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. #Quote by Anonymous
Israel quotes by Noam Chomsky
#73. It cannot be too often stressed that Israel had no credible pretext for its 2008-9 attack on Gaza, with full U.S. support and illegally using U.S. weapons. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Israel quotes by Milton Steinberg
#74. Jewish nationalism means no more than recognition of the peoplehood of Israel, and of the propriety of that people's being a religio-cultural group in America, a nationality in Eastern Europe, and in Palestine an actualized nation. #Quote by Milton Steinberg
Israel quotes by Stephen Kinzer
#75. Accepting that Arabs have the right to elect their own leaders means accepting the rise of governments that do not share America's pro-Israel militancy. #Quote by Stephen Kinzer
Israel quotes by Israel Horovitz
#76. My dream is to have a small company in France. #Quote by Israel Horovitz
Israel quotes by Gene Simmons
#77. Coming back to Israel is a homecoming. #Quote by Gene Simmons
Israel quotes by Jimmy Dore
#78. If it wasn't anti-Semitic to do it to South Africa, it's not anti-Semitic to do it to Israel. #Quote by Jimmy Dore
Israel quotes by Dennis Kucinich
#79. Crimes against humanity in Gaza: is it really a 'buffer zone' - or a bigger plan?
It's time to step back and ask if we want to support Israel if it wants to eject all Palestinians from their land. #Quote by Dennis Kucinich
Israel quotes by Israel Shamir
#80. The blindness of Winston Churchill turned him into a Zionist dupe and trapped him into triggering WWII, with its millions of victims. It is to be regretted that some right-wingers are following his path by supporting Zionism and pushing for WWIII. #Quote by Israel Shamir
Israel quotes by John Price
#81. This peace treaty, which will be broken as Russia and the listed Muslim nations invade and attempt to annihilate Israel, is not the later peace treaty that Daniel prophesied (Daniel 9:27) will be signed by the Antichrist with Israel. The second end times peace treaty will be broken by the Antichrist during the Tribulation. #Quote by John Price
Israel quotes by Andre Vltchek
#82. The majority of Arab people see the United States and Israel (definitely not Iran or Syria) as the greatest danger to the world. Could you imagine what the Arab people would do if true democracy (rule of the people) were to be victorious? #Quote by Andre Vltchek
Israel quotes by Bill Maher
#83. I feel terrible for a Palestinian child who dies. But, if it's your father, your brother or your uncle who was firing those rockets into Israel, whose fault is it really? Do you really expect the Israelis not to retaliate? #Quote by Bill Maher
Israel quotes by Ali Suliman
#84. To be an actor in the society in Israel, you have to be ten times better than the Israeli Jews. To get the roles in mainstream theater or to get any role, not typecast as an Arab. And also if you are ten times better, not all the time you get the opportunity. #Quote by Ali Suliman
Israel quotes by Jane Birkin
#85. There's no fun in a bag if it's not kicked around so that it looks as if the cat's been sitting on it - and it usually has. The cat may even be in it! I always put on stickers and beads and worry beads. You can get them from Greece, Israel, Palestine - from anywhere in the world. #Quote by Jane Birkin
Israel quotes by Daniel Barenboim
#86. European anti-Semitism goes much further back than to the partition of Palestine and the establishment of Israel in 1948. It even goes further back than the Holocaust. #Quote by Daniel Barenboim
Israel quotes by William C. Placher
#87. The themes of Jesus' teaching are important, but of course he was more than a teacher. All the Gospels put the end of his life at the dramatic center of his story. Here all the hopes of Israel come together - he is the king of the Jews, the greatest of all the suffering prophets. Yet Jesus transformed those expectations. He did not lead Israel to victory over Rome. Indeed, one of the remarkable features of the narratives of his last days is that his increasing isolation makes it impossible to identify him with any one 'side' or cause. The Roman governor sentenced him as a Jewish rebel, but the leaders of Judaism also turned against him. He attacked the powerful on behalf of the poor, but in the end the mob too called for his blood. His own disciples ran away; Peter denied him. He did not go to his death agony as a representative of Jews, or of the poor, or of Christians, but alone, and thus, according to Christian faith, as a representative of all. #Quote by William C. Placher
Israel quotes by Dennis Prager
#88. The fact is that people who strap bombs to their bodies to blow up families at a Bar Mitzvah in Israel, plant bombs at a nightclub in Bali, or slit stewardesses' throats and ram airplanes filled with innocent Americans into office buildings do not do so for any reason related to poverty. They do so because they hold evil beliefs and have deformed consciences #Quote by Dennis Prager
Israel quotes by Yitzhak Rabin
#89. The struggle to get weapons is continuous, but the United States will aid us, if it finds Israel displaying a willingness for peace. #Quote by Yitzhak Rabin
Israel quotes by Robert Cohan
#90. As an American, the first thing I noticed about British dancers
was their intellectual response to movement. In countries like Israel, the USA,
Australia and South Africa, the approach is much more athletic. People spend
a lot of time outdoors, and play sports in clothing that exposes the body.
Northern Europeans tend to be more introverted – more covered up in every sense. #Quote by Robert Cohan
Israel quotes by David Ben-Gurion
#91. In the midst of wanton aggression, we still call upon the Arab inhabitants of the State of Israel to return to the ways of peace and play their part in the development of the State, with full and equal citizenship and due representation in its bodies and institutions - provisional or permanent. #Quote by David Ben-Gurion
Israel quotes by Shahar Pe'er
#92. I'm Shahar Peer. I came here to play tennis. I know I'm from Israel and I'm proud of my country and that playing tennis is what I'm going to do tomorrow. #Quote by Shahar Pe'er
Israel quotes by Moses
#93. Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? #Quote by Moses
Israel quotes by Israel Shenker
#94. Fundamentalists are less concerned to be systematic and rational than to be humble and faithful, accepting God's commandments because they come from God, not because they proceed from common sense or sophisticated reason. #Quote by Israel Shenker
Israel quotes by Chris Matthews
#95. Then the administration tied it in to the regional dispute between Israel and its enemies, as if that's about international terrorism. No, it's not. #Quote by Chris Matthews
Israel quotes by Israel Regardie
#96. Mysticism - Magic and Yoga - is the means, therefore, to a new universal life, richer, greater and more full of resource than ever before, as free as sunlight, as gracious as the unfolding of a rose. It is for man (and woman) to take. #Quote by Israel Regardie
Israel quotes by Alan Dershowitz
#97. When I decide who to vote for as president, I ask myself who will be best for America and for the world. An important component of my answer involves my assessment of the candidate's willingness and ability to protect Israel's security, since I strongly believe that a strong Israel serves the interests of the United States and of world peace. #Quote by Alan Dershowitz
Israel quotes by Israel Shamir
#98. There are no important media outlets in the US that are not owned or controlled by Jews. #Quote by Israel Shamir
Israel quotes by Anonymous
#99. 7 Then ye shall answer them, That the waters of Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it passed over Jordan, the waters of Jordan were cut off: and these stones shall be for a memorial unto the children of Israel for ever. #Quote by Anonymous
Israel quotes by Richard Dawkins
#100. The bitter hatreds that now poison Middle Eastern politics are rooted in the real or perceived wrong of the setting up of a Jewish State in an Islamic region. In view of all that the Jews had been through, it must have seemed a fair and humane solution. Probably deep familiarity with the Old Testament had given the European and American decision-makers some sort of idea that this really was the historic homeland of the Jews. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Israel quotes by Elizabeth Wurtzel
#101. Israel fights back, which is very much at odds with the Jewish instinct to discuss and deconstruct everything until action itself seems senseless. #Quote by Elizabeth Wurtzel
Israel quotes by Saeb Erekat
#102. Look, I am a Palestinian elected representative from Jericho. If a Palestinian wants to sell his fruit anywhere in the West Bank, he goes to the Israeli civil administration. If a Palestinian sick person wants to leave a hospital, he goes through the Israeli civil administration. Nobody can leave or enter my constituency without Israeli permission. Israel is, in effect, resuming the occupation. #Quote by Saeb Erekat
Israel quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#103. Our society is illuminated by the spiritual insights of the Hebrew prophets. America and Israel have a common love of human freedom, and they have a common faith in a democratic way of life. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Israel quotes by Yochai Benkler
#104. Like crime, terrorism is a fact of life. I grew up in Israel, where every unattended bag was a suspected bomb; when my family moved for a few years, it was to London in the early years of 'the Troubles.' #Quote by Yochai Benkler
Israel quotes by Benjamin Netanyahu
#105. Israel has, enjoys bipartisan support - both Democrats and Republicans - and we extend bipartisan hospitality to both Democrats and Republicans. #Quote by Benjamin Netanyahu
Israel quotes by Abdallah II Of Jordan
#106. Is Israel going to continue to be 'Fortress Israel'? Or, as we all hope, become accepted into the neighborhood, which I believe is the only way we can move forward in harmony. #Quote by Abdallah II Of Jordan
Israel quotes by Hannah Duggan
#107. But now thus saith the Lord, that created thee, O Jacob: and He that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee: I have called thee by thy name, thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee, and through the floods, that they do not overflow thee. When thou walkest through the very fire, thou shalt not be burnt, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee." isaiah 43:1-2 #Quote by Hannah Duggan
Israel quotes by Thomas Paine
#108. Government by kings was first introduced into the world by the Heathens, from whom the children of Israel copied the custom. It was the most prosperous invention the Devil ever set on foot for the promotion of idolatry. The Heathens paid divine honours to their deceased kings, and the Christian world hath improved on the plan, by doing the same to their living ones. How impious is the title of sacred majesty applied to a worm, who in the midst of his splendor is crumbling into dust! #Quote by Thomas Paine

Israel quotes by Ezekiel Emanuel
#110. Our dad hugged us and kissed us so much that some friends and relatives complained that he was going to turn us into sissies or homosexuals. But my dad didn't care. Let them raise their kids in a reserved and reticent way. He grew up in Israel, and his boys were going to be hugged and kissed by their father and know they were loved. #Quote by Ezekiel Emanuel
Israel quotes by Elliott Abrams
#111. The Middle East that Obama inherited in 2009 was largely at peace, for the surge in Iraq had beaten down the al Qaeda-linked groups. U.S. relations with traditional allies in the Gulf, Jordan, Israel and Egypt were very good. Iran was contained, its Revolutionary Guard forces at home. #Quote by Elliott Abrams
Israel quotes by Moran Atias
#112. Italy was a surprise in my life. I went there just to make money and then go back to Israel and study psychology. The arts wasn't something I grew up with or thought I could be part of. #Quote by Moran Atias
Israel quotes by Yasser Arafat
#113. We shall never stop until we can go back home and Israel is destroyed ... The goal of our struggle is the end of Israel, and there can be no compromises or mediations ... the goal of this violence is the elimination of Zionism from Palestine in all its political, economic and military aspects ... We don't want peace, we want victory. Peace for us means Israel's destruction and nothing else. #Quote by Yasser Arafat

Israel quotes by Israel Shenker
#116. Embracing and rejecting tradition, bound and liberated by faith, torn between obscurantism and reason, self-assured and self-critical, they were a kaleidoscope of fragments, positions held and abandoned, images formed and shattered, God-fearing Jew, God-denying Jew, passionate and indifferent, hero and villain, yea-sayer, nay-sayer. #Quote by Israel Shenker
Israel quotes by Yael Naim
#117. When I'd go to Israel, I felt like a tourist. My social and professional ties had started to dissolve, and it confused me. I didn't know whether I should stay here in Paris or go back to Israel, or even cut off all my ties with Israel so I could really plant roots here. Or maybe go somewhere else altogether. #Quote by Yael Naim
Israel quotes by Ilan Ramon
#118. The world looks marvelous from up here, so peaceful, so wonderful and so fragile. Everybody, all of us down there, not only in Israel, have to keep it clean and good. #Quote by Ilan Ramon
Israel quotes by James E. Faust
#119. Honesty is a principle, and we have our moral agency to determine how we will apply this principle. We have the agency to make choices, but ultimately we will be accountable for each choice we make. We may deceive others, but there is One we will never deceive. From the Book of Mormon we learn, "The keeper of the gate is the Holy One of Israel; and he employeth no servant there; and there is none other way save it be by the gate; for he cannot be deceived, for the Lord God is his name." [2 Nephi 9:41] #Quote by James E. Faust
Israel quotes by Ambrose
#120. Now since you are celebrating the holy Pascha, you should know, brethren, what the Pascha is. Pascha means the crossing-over, and so the Festival is called by this name. For it was on this day that the Children of Israel crossed over out of Egypt, and the Son of God crossed over from this world to His Father. What gain is it to celebrate unless you imitate Him Whom you worship; that is, unless you cross over from Egypt, that is, from the darkness of evildoing to the light of virtue, from the love of this world to the love of your heavenly home? #Quote by Ambrose
Israel quotes by John Hockenberry
#121. In America access is always about architecture and never about human beings. Among Israelis and Palestinians, access was rarely about anything but people. While in the U.S. a wheelchair stands out as an explicitly separate experience from the mainstream, in the Israel and Arab worlds it is just another thing that can go wrong in a place where things go wrong all the time. #Quote by John Hockenberry
Israel quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#122. Despite the present, temporary interests that Israel has in common with France and Britain, you ought not to forget that the strength of Israel and her future are bound up with the United States. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Israel quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#123. Stephen Hawking won't come to Israel? I'm not one to punch a quadriplegic with glasses, but I'm sure he won't mind if we ask for his voice back - you know, the one that was created by Israeli engineers. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer

Israel quotes by Muammar Al-Gaddafi
#126. There are serious mistakes, among them the one saying that Jesus came as a messenger for other people other than the sons of Israel ... Christianity is not a faith for people in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Other people who are not sons of Israel have nothing to do with that religion ... It is a mistake that another religion exists alongside Islam. There is only one religion which is Islam after Mohammed ... All those believers who do not follow Islam are losers. #Quote by Muammar Al-Gaddafi
Israel quotes by Don Nickles

Israel quotes by David Frum
#128. By abrogating all moral standards in their war against Israel, Arab and Muslim leaders initiated a process of moral collapse that has ended by soaking their own societies in blood. The terror they intended to inflict only upon others has rebounded with a hundred times greater horror upon their own lands. #Quote by David Frum
Israel quotes by Danny Danon
#129. When we see a lack of leadership coming from the White House, that's what brings leaders in Turkey to attack Israel the way they do. When we see a lack of leadership coming from the White House, that's why we see the leader of Iran ... continuing to build the nuclear reactors. #Quote by Danny Danon

Israel quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#131. "Stand still" - keep the posture of an upright man, ready for action, expecting further orders, cheerfully and patiently awaiting the directing voice; and it will not be long ere God shall say to you, as distinctly as Moses said it to the people of Israel, "Go forward." #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Israel quotes by Elliott Abrams
#132. The United States should encourage Israel to take further steps to improve the Palestinian economy. #Quote by Elliott Abrams
Israel quotes by Jonathan Rosen
#133. The Talmud offered a virtual home for an uprooted culture, and grew out of the Jewish need to pack civilization into words and wander out into the world. The Talmud became essential for Jewish survival once the Temple - God's pre-Talmud home - was destroyed, and the Temple practices, those bodily rituals of blood and fire and physical atonement, could no longer be performed. When the Jewish people lost their home (the land of Israel) and God lost His (the Temple), then a new way of being was devised and Jews became the people of the book and not the people of the Temple or the land. They became the people of the book because they had no place else to live. That bodily loss is frequently overlooked, but for me it lies at the heart of the Talmud, for all its plenitude. The Internet, which we are continually told binds us together, nevertheless engenders in me a similar sense of diaspora, a feeling of being everywhere and nowhere. Where else but in the middle of Diaspora do you need a home page? #Quote by Jonathan Rosen
Israel quotes by Elliott Abrams
#134. One good way of measuring the mood in Israel is just how alert or relaxed the guards at every restaurant entrance appear to be. #Quote by Elliott Abrams
Israel quotes by Donald Trump

Israel quotes by Anton Newcombe
#137. I don't have to support Bibi, his government or any other conservative organization in order to come and play music in Israel, for people who want to come and listen to music. I think it's b******t to ask me to boycott Israel and not America. It's interesting that some people choose to pick on Israel and isolate her ... I was invited to perform and that's why I'll perform, as long as the border is open and I'm welcomed. I'm just coming to play. #Quote by Anton Newcombe
Israel quotes by Amos Oz

Israel quotes by Darren Star

Israel quotes by Henry B. Eyring
#144. We know that a loving Father has allowed us to live in a time when Jesus Christ has called prophets and others to serve as judges in Israel. Because of that we listen to a prophet's voice or sit in counsel with a bishop with the hope that we will hear correction. . . .

We know He has placed servants to offer us both His covenants and His correction. We see the giving and the taking of correction as priceless and sacred. That is at least one of the reasons why the Lord warned us to seek as our teachers only men and women who are inspired of Him. And that is one of the reasons why we welcome prophets to lead us. . . .

Because He loves us and because the purpose of the plan is to become like Him, He requires exactness of us. And the promises He makes to us always include the power to grow in our capacity to keep covenants. He makes it possible for us to know His rules. When we try with all our hearts to meet His standards, He gives us the companionship of the Holy Ghost. That in turn increases our power both to keep commitments and to discern what is good and true. And that is the power to learn, both in our temporal studies and in the learning we need for eternity. . . .

For the child of God who has enough faith in the plan of salvation to treat it as reality, hard work is the only reasonable option. Life at its longest is short. What we do here determines the rest of our condition for eternity. God our Father has offered us everything He has an #Quote by Henry B. Eyring

Israel quotes by Ellen G. White
#147. It was Christ, by the power of his word, that caused the refreshing stream to flow for Israel. "They drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ." 1 Corinthians 10:4. He was the source of all temporal as well as spiritual blessings. Christ, the true Rock, was with them in all their wanderings. "They thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them; he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out." "They ran in the dry places like a river." Isaiah 48:21; Psalm 105:41. #Quote by Ellen G. White
Israel quotes by Martin Samuel
#148. It is a testament to the fundamental honesty of football that Israel, with nothing to play for, overcame Russia in Tel Aviv on Saturday. The sport has its faults, but this basic trust is the reason Wembley holds 80,000 and could take more and the track and field venue for the London Olympics will be reduced after the event to the same capacity as the home of Wigan Athletic. #Quote by Martin Samuel
Israel quotes by Victor Davis Hanson

Israel quotes by Dennis Prager
#152. When Israel gave Gaza over to the Palestinians, it did not embargo essentials such as cement. But none of the millions of tons of cement allowed, or later smuggled, into Gaza were used to building schools or hospitals. They were used to build tunnels to smuggle terrorists into Israel and to hide rockets. #Quote by Dennis Prager
Israel quotes by Craig G. Bartholomew
#153. Israel is not free to exploit the land at will. Israel always lives in the land with the Lord, and his laws contain many instructions about how to manage the land properly. In particular, the law of the Sabbath is a powerful reminder that the Lord is the one who sustains the creation and #Quote by Craig G. Bartholomew
Israel quotes by Gideon Raff
#154. Here in Israel, we want the boys back home, we demand it from our government, who often pay a steep price to get hostages back. But we need a happy ending. We don't want to deal with those days after release, their post-trauma or reintroduction to society. Yet coming home is only the start of their journey. #Quote by Gideon Raff
Israel quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#155. Like the shepherds of old, we need to say in our hearts, "Let us see this thing which is come to pass." We need to desire it in our hearts. Let us see the Holy One of Israel in the manger, in the temple, on the mount, and on the cross. Like the shepherds, let us glorify and praise God for these tidings of great joy! #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Israel quotes by Graeme Goldsworthy
#157. Some may object that to speak of election or predestination is to limit the kingdom of God to a few. Does it make God a capricious tyrant? We must answer that such objections usually stem from a refusal to accept that we are faced here with a mystery that is not given to us to solve. There is also a radical misunderstanding which maintains that God's sovereignty in election removes man's responsibility. Such is not true. How divine sovereignty and human responsibility work together we cannot know. The Bible makes it clear that they do. // Let us remember that Jesus discriminated and limited the numbers of the saved: 'Small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it' (Matthew 7:13-14). This is in line with the Old Testament teaching that only a faithful remnant of Israel would be saved. #Quote by Graeme Goldsworthy

Israel quotes by Shlomo Sand

Israel quotes by Karl Marx
#163. Let us consider the actual, worldly Jew
not the Sabbath Jew, as Bauer does, but the everyday Jew ... What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money.. Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of man
and turns them into commodities. The bill of exchange is the real god of the Jew. His god is only an illusory bill of exchange. The chimerical nationality of the Jew is the nationality of the merchant, of the man of money in general. #Quote by Karl Marx
Israel quotes by Seneca The Younger

#169. If you and I desire the blessings of life, of health, of vigor of body and mind; if we desire the destroying angel to pass us by, as he did in the days of the children of Israel, we must obey the Word of Wisdom; then God is bound, and the blessing shall come to us. #Quote by Heber J. Grant
Israel quotes by Mel White

Israel quotes by Rand Paul
#171. We have Islamic rebels [in Syria] who've been eating the hearts or organs of their enemies. We have priests that have been killed. We have Christian villages that have been razed by Islamic rebels. We have Islamic rebels who say they don't recognize Israel and would just as soon attack Israel as [Bashar] Assad. So really, I see no clear-cut American interest, and I'm afraid that sometimes things unravel, and the situation could become less stable and not more stable. #Quote by Rand Paul
Israel quotes by Heber C. Kimball
#172. Will you be slack, brethren, and let the evil come upon us, when we forewarn you of the future events that are coming; ...

I tell you that there is trouble coming upon the world ... #Quote by Heber C. Kimball
Israel quotes by Brian Godawa
#173. They were here today because Aaron was very weak and dying, and was about to be gathered to his fathers. Moses was not much younger than Aaron, one hundred and twenty years old, but was much stronger for his age. The high priesthood had to be transferred onto Eleazer. This was the fortieth year of their wandering, and Yahweh had promised that Aaron would not enter the Promised Land. Moses knew his own time would be soon as well, but he did not know when. Aaron had worn the vestments of his high priesthood for the sake of the ceremony they were now performing before the eyes of all of Israel below them. #Quote by Brian Godawa

Israel quotes by Barack Obama
#176. Even as we do all that's necessary to ensure Israel's security, even as we are clear-eyed about the difficult challenges before us, and even as we pledge to stand by Israel through whatever tough days lie ahead, I hope we do not give up on that vision of peace. For if history teaches us anything, if the story of Israel teaches us anything, it is that with courage and resolve, progress is possible. Peace is possible. #Quote by Barack Obama
Israel quotes by Barack Obama
#177. Those who threaten Israel threaten us. Israel has always faced these threats on the frontlines, and I will bring to the White House an unshakable commitment to Israel's security. That starts with insuring Israel's qualitative military advantage. I will insure that Israel can defend itself from any threat, from Gaza to Tehran. #Quote by Barack Obama
Israel quotes by Israel Shenker

Israel quotes by Geraldine Brooks
#179. And when I'd be reporting in Israel, Palestinians would say, the Jews they're not like us, and the Jews would say the same things about the Palestinians, they don't want what we want. And I never bought it as a reporter and I don't buy it as a novelist. I think, you know, the sound of somebody crying for their lost child sounds the same. #Quote by Geraldine Brooks
Israel quotes by Ronald Reagan
#180. Israel exists; it has a right to exist in peace behind secure and defensible borders; and it has a right to demand of its neighbors that they recognize those facts. I have personally followed and supported Israel's heroic struggle for survival, ever since the founding of the State of Israel 34 years ago. In the pre-1967 borders Israel was barely 10 miles wide at its narrowest point. The bulk of Israel's population lived within artillery range of hostile Arab armies. I am not about to ask Israel to live that way again. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Israel quotes by Mitt Romney

Israel quotes by Gilad Atzmon
#183. Unlike old-fashioned Britain, where Tony Blair recruited Lord Levy to encourage his 'Friends of Israel' to donate their money to a party that was just about to launch a criminal war, in America Alan Greenspan provided his president with an astonishing economic boom. It seems that the prosperous conditions at home divert the attention from the disastrous war in Iraq.
Greenspan is not an amateur economist, he knew what he was doing. He knew very well that as long as Americans were doing well, buying and selling homes, his President would be able to continue implementing the 'Wolfowitz doctrine' and PNAC philosophy, destroying the 'bad Arabs' in the name of 'democracy', 'liberalism', 'ethics', and even 'women's rights'. #Quote by Gilad Atzmon
Israel quotes by Elie Wiesel
#184. There is Israel, for us at least. What no other generation had, we have. We have Israel in spite of all the dangers, the threats and the wars, we have Israel. We can go to Jerusalem. Generations and generations could not and we can. #Quote by Elie Wiesel
Israel quotes by Moshe Safdie
#185. Except for the projects in Israel, my being Israeli has contributed negatively to my global activity. It is hard for me, for example, to get projects in the Persian Gulf emirates. #Quote by Moshe Safdie
Israel quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#186. Because this history seems to be typical of the calling of the Gentile church, and indeed of the conversion of every believer. Ruth was not originally of Israel, but was a Moabitess, an alien from the commonwealth of Israel: but she forsook her own people, and the idols of the Gentiles, to worship the God of Israel, and to join herself to that people. Herein she seems to be a type of the Gentile church, and also of every sincere convert. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Israel quotes by George Mikes
#187. I said in my earlier book, and find no reason for retracting my statement, that the famous Jewish sense of humour got lost in transit to Israel. #Quote by George Mikes
Israel quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#188. Once more the priestly instinct of the Jew perpetrated
the same old master crime against history--he simply struck out the yesterday and the day before yesterday of Christianity, and invented his own history of Christian beginnings. Going further, he treated the history of Israel to another falsification, so that it became a mere prologue to his achievement: all the prophets, it now appeared, had referred to his "Saviour."... Later on the church even falsified the history of man in order to make it a prologue to Christianity. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Israel quotes by Nelson Mandela

Israel quotes by Tom Paulin

Israel quotes by Matthew Arnold
#192. And as long as the world lasts, all who want to make progress in righteousness will come to Israel for inspiration, as to the people who have had the sense for righteousness most glowing and strongest; and in hearing and reading the words Israel has uttered for us, carers for conduct will find a glow and a force they could find nowhere else. #Quote by Matthew Arnold
Israel quotes by Noa Ben Artzi-Pelossof
#193. The Holocaust may belong to history, but it was the price we paid to become a nation. Auschwitz was like a cradle of death that enabled future generations of Israelis to live. #Quote by Noa Ben Artzi-Pelossof
Israel quotes by Israel Morrow
#194. One popular defense of the Founding Fathers says they were simply men of their time, flawed idealists for whom 'that was the culture then.' But in fact, they were not men of their time. The Founding Fathers were men of their color (white) of their status (wealthy) of their descent (European) of their time.
To say that the Founding Fathers were men of their time defines time according to them. It legitimizes their place at the top of the world--the origin of popular history--even if the leaders of other nations were more democratic and fair-handed. #Quote by Israel Morrow
Israel quotes by N. T. Wright
#195. Rabbinic literature, though it includes plenty of material from before AD 135, tends to see everything in the light, not of a continuing story about God and Israel within the ongoing flow of world history, but of the much thinner, often dehistoricized world of Torah-piety. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Israel quotes by Noam Chomsky
#196. It can be seen, then, that a public debate on the issue of the Nakbah, whether conducted in Israel itself or in the United States, its imperial protector, could open up questions concerning the moral legitimacy of the Zionist project as a whole. The mechanism of denial, therefore, was crucial, not only for defeating the counter-claims made by Palestinians in the peace process, but, far more importantly, for disallowing any significant debate on the very essence and moral foundations of Zionism. #Quote by Noam Chomsky

Israel quotes by Francis Chan
#198. Lukewarm people feel secure because they attend church, made a profession of faith at age twelve, were baptized, come from a Christian family, vote Republican, or live in America. Just as the prophets in the Old Testament warned Israel that they were not safe just because they lived in the land of Israel, so we are not safe just because we wear the label 'Christian' or because some people persist in calling us a 'Christian nation. #Quote by Francis Chan
