Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Manfred Gerstenfeld
#1. Media turned against Israel was a gradual process. And it has gotten worse over the years. I think the main development was the 1982 Lebanon War. #Quote by Manfred Gerstenfeld
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by John Kasich
#2. I was not in favor of U.S. troops in Lebanon. And I voted against it. #Quote by John Kasich
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by David Ben-Gurion
#3. We should prepare to go over to the offensive. Our aim is to smash Lebanon, Trans-Jordan and Syria. The weak point is Lebanon, for the Moslem regime is artificial and easy for us to undermine. We shall establish a Christian state there and then we will smash the Arab Legion, eliminate Trans-Jordan; Syria will fall to us. We then bomb and move on and take Port Said, Alexandria and Sinai. #Quote by David Ben-Gurion
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Annia Ciezadlo
#4. Being an American journalist can put people on the defensive. In countries where people assume the press is partisan, like in Lebanon, or where it had essentially become an extension of the government, like in Iraq, people tend to see a journalist as an agent of his or her government. That can be dangerous if the United States military is occupying their country, or aligned with their enemies. #Quote by Annia Ciezadlo
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by William Safire
#5. In dealing with Syria's dictator ... only force counts. No cease-fire was attainable in Lebanon until the 16-inch guns of the battleship New Jersey started shelling Syria's proxies; suddenly, sweet reason prevailed in Damascus. #Quote by William Safire
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Najib Mikati
#6. My agenda is not to reassure anybody outside Lebanon. #Quote by Najib Mikati
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Harry Emerson Fosdick
#7. The Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea are made of the same water. It flows down, clean and cool, from the heights of Herman and the roots of the cedars of Lebanon. the Sea of Galilee makes beauty of it, the Sea of Galilee has an outlet. It gets to give. It gathers in its riches that it may pour them out again to fertilize the Jordan plain. But the Dead Sea with the same water makes horror. For the Dead Sea has no outlet. It gets to keep. #Quote by Harry Emerson Fosdick
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Kai Bird
#8. My father was a Foreign Service officer, a diplomat and an Arabist who spent virtually all his career in the Near East, as it was called in the State Department. So I spent most of my childhood among the Israelis and the Arabs of Palestine, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. #Quote by Kai Bird
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Bayard Taylor
#9. True, when you behold Damascus from the Salahiyeh, the last slope of the Anti-Lebanon, it is the realization of all that you have dreamed of Oriental splendor; the world has no picture more dazzling. It is Beauty carried to the Sublime, as I have felt when overlooking some boundless forest of palms within the tropics. #Quote by Bayard Taylor
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#10. People have the problem of denial. This is one of the things I learned in Lebanon. Everybody who left Beirut when the war started, including my parents, said, 'Oh, its temporary.' It lasted 17 years! People tend to underestimate the gravity of these situations. That's how they work. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Zeina Kassem
#11. That's when it hit me; my sunglasses were buried in the grave where my Talal lay.

Yes, my sunglasses were buried with him. But oh, how I wish my eyes had gone with him instead. #Quote by Zeina Kassem

Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Jimmy Carter
#15. I don't think that Israel has any legal or moral justification for their massive bombing of the entire nation of Lebanon. What happened is that Israel is holding almost 10,000 prisoners, so when the militants in Lebanon or in Gaza take one or two soldiers, Israel looks upon this as a justification for an attack on the civilian population of Lebanon and Gaza. I do not think that's justified, no. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Wesley Clark
#16. We're going to take out seven countries in 5 years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran #Quote by Wesley Clark
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Zeina Kassem

Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Najib Mikati
#18. In my opinion, the Hezbollah has going - they are going to discover sooner or later than in their top priority should preserve Lebanon. #Quote by Najib Mikati
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by George Will
#19. If there were 10,000 U.S. forces ashore [in Lebanon], authorized to move about, there would be less risk to American lives than there is with an immobile force of 1,300. #Quote by George Will
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Najib Mikati
#20. We open our door, and we are still committed to open our door for our brothers in Syria. But doesn't mean that we should not keep alone. The international community should really - should really share Lebanon the numbers of refugees and share Lebanon the cost of their living. #Quote by Najib Mikati
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Victor Davis Hanson
#21. Did either the nonexistent or the measured response after a series of attacks on Americans the past decade - in Lebanon, Africa, Saudi Arabia, New York, and Yemen - suggest to our terrorist enemies that it was wrong and unwise to kill reasonable and affable people, or did the easy killing imply that self-absorbed and pampered Lotus-eaters would not much care who or how many were butchered as long as it was within reasonable numbers and spread out over time? #Quote by Victor Davis Hanson
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Philip Roth
#22. But I never did escape from this plot-driven world into a more congenial, subtly probable, innerly propelled narrative of my own devising
didn't make it to the airport, ...
and that was because in the taxi I remembered a political cartoon I'd seen in the British papers when I was living in London during the Lebanon war, a detestable cartoon of a big-nosed Jew, his hands meekly opened out in front of him and his shoulders raised in a shrug as though to disavow responsibility, standing atop a pyramid of dead Arab bodies. Purportedly a caricature of Menachem Begin, then prime minister of Israel, the drawing was, in fact, a perfectly realistic, unequivocal depiction of a kike as classically represented in the Nazi press. The cartoon was what turned me around. Barely ten minutes out of Jerusalem, I told the driver to take me back to the King David Hotel. #Quote by Philip Roth
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Hassan Nasrallah
#23. Our priority is still the liberation of our land and the protection of Lebanon from the Israeli threat. #Quote by Hassan Nasrallah
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Dennis Prager
#24. As for terror against Israelis, Palestinian Muslim terror emanates from a desire to destroy Israel, not from Israel's conduct regarding Palestinians, whether occupation, settlements, or checkpoints. One proof is that the greatest amount of Palestinian terror against Israel was unleashed after Israel agreed to give up nearly all of the West Bank to the Palestinians at the end of 2000. Islamist terror against Israel is the result of Muslim, especially Arab Muslim, desires to annihilate the one non-Muslim state in the midst of the Arab world. For most Arab Muslims and for all Islamists, the Middle East is supposed to be under Muslim rule. There is no place for a Christian Lebanon or for a Jewish Israel, no matter what its borders. That Israel is Jewish is all the more an affront to many Muslims. Jews are supposed to have dhimmi status under Muslim rule, and no Muslim should be under Jewish rule. #Quote by Dennis Prager
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Derrick Jensen
#25. This culture destroys landbases. That's what it does. When you think of Iraq, is the first thing that comes to mind cedar forests so thick that sunlight never touched the ground? One of the first written myths of this culture is about Gilgamesh deforesting the hills and valleys of Iraq to build a great city. The Arabian Peninsula used to be oak savannah. The Near East was heavily forested (we've all heard of the cedars of Lebanon). Greece was heavily forested. North Africa was heavily forested.
We'll say it again: this culture destroys landbases.
And it won't stop doing so because we ask nicely. #Quote by Derrick Jensen
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Najib Mikati
#26. I call on the people of Tripoli to restrain themselves and not get drawn into conflict with anyone. #Quote by Najib Mikati
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Ang Swee Chai
#27. And the PRCS [Palestinian Red Crescent Society] had not lost just one hospital: thirteen clinics and nine hospitals all over Lebanon had been destroyed in this way. Only Gaza Hospital, for a reason I was to discover three years later, was still standing. At the height of the air raids, when the Palestinians found out that every single PRCS hospital and clinic was a bomb target, they put three Israeli soldiers captured in south Lebanon on the upper floors of Gaza Hospital, and radioed a message to the Israeli Army saying that any further military action on Gaza Hospital would result in Israeli lives being lost. That saved Gaza Hospital from further destruction. #Quote by Ang Swee Chai
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Nadia Ali
#28. I love the Middle East and have been lucky enough to visit a few of the countries like Egypt, Lebanon, Jordon and the U.A.E. #Quote by Nadia Ali
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Sara Paretsky
#29. The decimation of Lebanon was showing up in Chicago as a series of restaurants and little shops, just as the destruction of Vietnam had been visible here a decade earlier. If you never read the news but ate out a lot you should be able to tell who was getting beaten up around the world. #Quote by Sara Paretsky
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by George Galloway
#30. The invasion of Lebanon by Israel .. is a monstrous injustice. I side with the resistance to that injustice. Hizbollah is leading that resistance. I do not hesitate to say .. that I glorify that resistance. I glorify the Hizbollah national resistance movement, and I glorify the leader of Hizbollah, Sheikh Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah. #Quote by George Galloway
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Richard Engel
#31. Hezbollah and the government are only two of 18 political factions in Lebanon, most of them armed. There are militant Christian groups, Palestinian radicals, al-Qaida, Druze militias and even armed bands of Marxists still operating in Lebanon. #Quote by Richard Engel

Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Martin Van Creveld

Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Anonymous
#34. The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus; 2 it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the majesty of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the LORD, the majesty of our God. #Quote by Anonymous
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Ronald Kessler
#35. Just before Obama's nationally televised campaign kickoff rally last Feb. 10, the candidate disinvited Wright from giving the public invocation. Wright explained: 'When [Obama's] enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli' to visit Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, 'a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell.'

According to Wright, Obama then told him, 'You can get kind of rough in the sermons, so what we've decided is that it's best for you not to be out there in public.' But privately, Obama and his family prayed with Wright just before the presidential announcement. #Quote by Ronald Kessler
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#36. Once every hundred years Jesus of Nazareth meets Jesus of the Christian in a garden among the hills of Lebanon. And they talk long; and each time Jesus of Nazareth goes away saying to Jesus of the Christian, "My friend, I fear we shall never, never agree. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran

Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Mangosuthu Buthelezi

Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Onjali Q. Raúf

Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Najib Mikati

Tripoli Lebanon quotes by John Adams
#41. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion, - as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen [Muslims], - and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Mohammedan] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
[Adams submitted and signed the Treaty of Tripoli, 1797] #Quote by John Adams
Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#42. We took the liberty to make some enquiries concerning the ground of their pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury, and observed that we considered all mankind as our friends who had done us no wrong, nor had given us any provocation.

The Ambassador [of Tripoli] answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.

{Letter from the commissioners, John Adams & Thomas Jefferson, to John Jay, 28 March 1786} #Quote by Thomas Jefferson

Tripoli Lebanon quotes by David Hirst

Tripoli Lebanon quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#49. Ah, sinner, may the Lord quicken thee! But it is a work that makes the Saviour weep. I think when He comes to call some of you from your death in sin, He comes weeping and sighing for you. There is a stone that is to be rolled away
your bad and evil habits
and when that stone is taken away, a still small voice will not do for you; it must be the loud crashing voice, like the voice of the Lord which breaketh the cedars of Lebanon. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
