The E1 settlement announced by Israel is a red line. I tell you, a red line. Not because it divides the West Bank, and this is correct, but just because it's settlement activity.

May 25 2011 - United Nations

There is only one choice for Israel: either peace or settlements. If it's peace, then it is through talks. If Israel doesn't choose this, it will be a waste of time, a waste of opportunities.feedback

Sep 25 2010 - Gaza strip

Our demands for the cessation of settlement activities, the lifting of the blockade of Gaza and putting an end to illegal Israeli policies and practices do not constitute preconditions that are alien to the peace process, rather they are consistent with the implementation of obligations and commitments that have been agreed and reaffirmed by all resolutions adopted since the very start of the political process.feedback

Time is becoming our greatest enemy. We should end this conflict before it's too late.feedback

Jan 17 2005 - Gaza strip

I think that what we have to do, if we believe in peace, if we believe that we have to put an end to terrorism and violence is just to talk to each other and not to talk against each other, or to boycott each other. The decision of Mr Sharon was not the right decision.feedback
