All quotes about Israel

Nitzan Nuriel

You need to ask yourself, if you do this, what will the enemy do? Many times we decide taking action is better.feedback

Kamal Wazne

Syria made the machine faster. A confrontation is going to be deadly, destructive and painful for both sides.feedback

Nitzan Nuriel

At the same time we will try to keep Hezbollah weak to remind them what happened in 2006.feedback

Nitzan Nuriel

Generally speaking, this is the kind of threat we can't live with. This is the kind of threat we need to deal with.feedback

Ofer Zalzberg - The International Crisis Group

This is all classic Netanyahu. Saying 'hold me back before I do something,' but I don't see Israel launching a preemptive war. The next war between Israel and Hezbollah will be dramatic for Israel's population and will have consequences for whoever is in power.feedback

Faysal Itani

The rhetoric on both sides is a substitute for action – a way of reinforcing deterrence without having to take military action – and a way of saving face. But I do think things are trending negatively.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We are looking seriously at peace and maybe ultimately peace for the whole of the Middle East and I think we have a pretty good shot, maybe the best shot ever. It's a complex subject, always been considered the toughest deal of all: peace between Israel and the Palestinians, the toughest of all. I think we have a very, very good chance. I will certainly devote everything in my heart and within my soul to get a deal made.feedback

Gilad Gabay

It is a change in behaviour that happened because of people. People need to understand that they are in the heart of nature and that every [time a wolf feeds on litter] that has significance. We won't rest until we stop this, but we need the cooperation of the public.feedback

Haim Berger

I had no idea there had been a problem because it had not been publicised. In the middle of the night one of my girls woke me and said there is a wolf here. I didn't know about recent attacks even though the park ranger had come round the the day before. Now they are warning people.feedback

Haim Berger

I've been warning about the risk of this for almost 15 years – the risk of wolves getting gradually more used to humans and trying to convince people that we need to keep a greater distance.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We're going to be discussing many things, among them peace between the Palestinians and Israel. It would be a fantastic achievement. We're giving it an absolute go. I think there's a good chance that it could happen.feedback

JP Lee - SoftBank

We used to cover only Korea, but now we look at every early-stage company all across the world. We have investment portfolio companies in Southeast Asia, we have dozens of them in Singapore, Indonesia, we have investments in the U.S. and also we cover Israel.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It would be a fantastic achievement. We are giving it an absolute go. I think there's a good chance it could happen. Most people would say that there is no chance whatsoever. I think with the capability of Bibi - and frankly, the other side - I really think we have a chance. I think Israel would like to see it. I think the Palestinians would like to see it. And I can tell you that the Trump Administration would like to see it.feedback

Barack Obama

No one, has shown more contempt for other nations and for the well-being of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea. It is far past time for the nations of the world to confront another reckless regime, one that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing death to America, destruction to Israel and ruin for many leaders and nations in this room. Responsibility and leadership in the 21st century demand more.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Prime Minister Netanyahu has been a friend of mine for many years. We are going to talk about many important things, including the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. We think there is a good chance that this will happen. I think Israel wants peace, and that the Palestinians want to see it. You'll see very soon.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

Defensive arms, , are not provocative unless you are the aggressor.feedback

Mauro Vegni

For us, who for years have spoken about internationalisation of the Giro, to come to Israel is a unique opportunity to talk about Italy in this country.feedback

Yariv Levin

It's a great honour for us to host the Giro d'Italia, it shows the world has confidence in the ability of the state of Israel to organise a very big sports event.feedback

Thomas O. Karako

Layered defense is something that allows the Israelis to have increased shots at an incoming threat. It also allows them to use more cost-effective interceptors for threats from different ranges.feedback

Thomas O. Karako

The South Koreans have already established the requirement for low- and medium-tier interceptors. They have yet to move forward.feedback

Ivan Basso

All the bunch is fresh and each team will want their leader to take the pink jersey. The first time trial is not easy with a lot of turns and up and down and the second stage along the coast, and the third in the desert, possibly with a lot of wind – it will not be an easy start for the race.feedback

Enrique Pena Nieto

We have agreed to establish and begin the..negotiations to look over this agreement so that the commercial relationship between both nations intensifies and grows.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

While Israel opposes terrorism as a whole, it supports the legitimate efforts of the Kurdish people to achieve their own state.feedback

Marvin Hier - Simon Wiesenthal Center

I criticize the president for that. So you criticize. And he is the president of the United States. There are important issues we face – political, religious issues; issues of ethical and moral concern. You don't say, I'm retiring to my house and locking the doors, and I'll see you in a few years.feedback

Sam Grundwerg

This (entertainment outreach) is what creates, for people, an association with Israel at an experiential, emotional level.feedback

Sam Grundwerg

This is something the prime minister (Benjamin Netanyahu) has a deep appreciation for, as a creature of the media and someone who understands opinion-shaping. (It) gives the biggest bang for the buck in terms of reaching people. These are things that transcend the politics and the tribalism.feedback

Yair Lapid

Values won today, the spirit of IDF won today, our soldiers won today. It's clear that things can be different. Today we started to turn the ship towards sanity and values. That's why we are in politics. Everyone serves. Everyone works.feedback

Adam Berkowitz - Creative Artists Agency

Because Israeli TV is done on such a low budget, the shows are based on the characters.feedback

Alon Aranya

Los Angeles tends to be a bubble of comfort. It can be quite arid in terms of original inspiration. The Israeli shows, with their diverse, real-life problems and not-quite beautiful casts provide them with new ideas. They like the grit.feedback

Jonathan Freedland

The award-winning play Oslo depicts the high drama of Israeli and Palestinian negotiations of the past. But on the ground today, the picture is much bleaker. If you want to see Israelis and Palestinians attempt to make peace, you should head for the National Theatre in London – because you certainly won’t see them doing it anywhere else, least of all in the land they both call home. On stage, it’s all there. The sweat, the tears, the angst are laid bare in Oslo, the Tony-award winning play whose London transfer is just beginning. It tells the improbable story of the secret back-channel opened up by two Norwegian diplomats in the early 1990s, which ultimately led to the White House lawn, where Yasser Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin shook hands, watched by a smiling Bill Clinton, 24 years ago.feedback

Michael Chabon
Ayelet Waldman

Any Jew, anywhere, who does not act to oppose President Donald Trump and his administration acts in favor of anti-Semitism.feedback

Yigal Guetta

I would like to clarify that a handful of people are trying to spread some twisted things in my name, as if I gave legitimacy to forbidden acts. This is a lie and a distortion.feedback

Suzy Ben Zvi

God will repay all the Shas saints for what they did to him. The tradition of family is the holiest tradition in Judaism.feedback

Roi Lachmanovich

The party turned its back on a huge sector of the public that does not at all wish to concede on the importance of family.feedback

Donald J. Trump

As far as Syria is concerned, we have very little to do with Syria other than killing ISIS.feedback

Bruce Friedrich

It is a colossal market opportunity. This could put [lab-made] meat onto the radar of Chinese officials who have the capacity to steer billions of dollars into this technology.feedback

Josh Balk - Humane Society of the United States

[China's] version of Bill Gates is already backing these companies. I think all this runs into a pretty good theory that clean meat and other non-live animal protein sources will become bigger in China.feedback

Yaakov Nagel

Israel has not changed its position. Even when the agreement was signed, we said there were three or four clauses that were really bad. The deal that exists basically gives Iran the right to develop uranium.feedback

Jonathan Greenblatt

Some argue laws barring boycotts against Israel violate free speech. That’s wrong.feedback

Monika Koborova

There is not a problem with people from Israel and people from Arabic countries being side by side. They come to get healthy, not to make trouble.feedback

Eli Ben-Meir

But the more it got bigger and expanded, the more it had to do with winning these hearts and minds.feedback

Eli Ben-Meir

Usually, the guys involved in agriculture, in feeding the population, in taking care of the health situation, are the same guys that are responsible for defending them and fighting against the regime.feedback

Eli Ben-Meir

First of all, it had to do with morals. People were injured on the other side of the border, coming to our fence – they were going to die. Then it led to a lot of other things. There was an understanding that if we weren't there, somebody else would influence them.feedback

Ziad Doueiri

My mother breastfed me Palestinian milk and the Palestinian cause. Members of my family were killed while fighting with the Palestinians. I struggled for the Palestinian cause before you were born. The Insult is the pride of Lebanon's industry. We in Lebanon do Hummus and Shawerma well, and we do very good movies as well.feedback

Ghattas Khoury

Ziad Doueiri is a great Lebanese director who has been honored around the world. Respecting and honoring him is a must #Lebanon.feedback

Avi Gabbay

It's a particularly sad day for Israel when a caricature endorsed by the head of the KKK emerges from the home of the prime minister of the Jewish state.feedback

Antonio Conte

Davide Zappacosta played the game against Israel with the national team [on Tuesday] and showed he's in good physical condition. He worked with me in the national team. He knows very well which is my style of football, which is my idea.feedback

Simon Coveney

We cannot simply wait for the U.S. to take an initiative on their own, we should be supportive of them and helping them to shape it and design it in a way that is likely to have international community support. In the absence of the U.S. being able to bring forward a new initiative, I think the EU will have to do that itself. My concern is that it will be a much more difficult political challenge in a year's time or in two years' time. If you look at cycles of violence in Gaza, for example, without intervention and new initiatives in my view, we are heading there again.feedback

Antonio Conte

He played against Israel [for Italy], which shows he is in good condition. I worked with him and he knows my style of football. For him it is more simple for him to adapt our style.feedback

Eldad Eitan

The Syrians answered me that they too hoped that the war will end soon and that they returned the bird as a 'thank you' gesture for Israel taking care of wounded Syrians.feedback

Simon Coveney

Now is the time for the European Union ... to become more vocal.feedback

Sara Netanyahu

The majority of the people in Israel, unlike the media, they love us. So we tell them how you are great, and they love you.feedback

Erez Komarovsky

From them, I studied how to eat with my hands.feedback

Erez Komarovsky

I wasn't trying to develop an Israeli cuisine. I came back to Israel to develop a local cuisine.feedback

Erez Komarovsky

Lehem Erez became too big, too complicated for me. I needed to get in touch with my desires again.feedback

Janna Gur

Erez is the prophet of new Israeli cuisine. The general public doesn't know him. But he is so connected to the seasons, to the produce, to the local gastronomy. This is what Israeli food is all about.feedback

Roger Cohen - The New York Times

Trump should emulate James Baker, who gave the White House switchboard number and told the Israelis: ”When you’re serious about peace, call us.”.feedback

Amos Yadlin

The factory that was targeted in Masyaf produces the chemical weapons and barrel bombs that have killed thousands of Syrian civilians.feedback

Melissa Landa

From everything we know, the environment remains toxic for anyone who expresses support for Israel.feedback

Shlomo Elkan

At first the questioning and conflict seemed natural. That's what college is about, with kids seeking new identities, communities, even religious narratives. But in the last several years we noticed hard lines forming around students to show their progressive stripes. That put many in the uncomfortable position of having to denounce Israel and their own Jewishness or stay silent when others did so.feedback

Shimon Peres

The most generous display of friendship I had ever known.feedback

Giampiero Ventura

We will go through the play-off, but we're sure that we will qualify for the World Cup. I agree with [Italian Football Federation president Carlo] Tavecchio, not going to the World Cup will be very bad. But we're not thinking about it now, we're just going to think about the game with Israel, we need to win to qualify for the play-offs.feedback

Moshe Negbi

This is a very serious affair because it is about bribery and about life and death, about state security, perhaps about neglecting our security and investing unnecessary public money to satisfy people's greed.feedback

Barak Ravid - Haaretz

On the other hand, if this whole affair took place behind Netanyahu's back, then the prime minister doesn't know what's going on around him, and surrounded himself unknowingly with a bunch of allegedly corrupt people, appointing them to the highest and most sensitive positions in government. It's hard to decide which of these possibilities is worse.feedback

Gianluigi Buffon

That second place isn't mathematically locked down yet, so the next game with Israel is going to be fundamental. We must prepare and win.feedback

Nikki Haley

They have thousands of missiles and thousands of trained fighters all beyond the control of the Lebanese government. It is apparent to everyone who cares to see it.feedback

Nikki Haley

For too long UNIFIL's leadership has failed to make sure this goal is realized.feedback

Anne Gueguen - United Nations Security Council

UNIFIL, of course, can do better and can do more, but no-one in this council can imagine for one second the environment existing there without UNIFIL.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

This is something Israel cannot accept. This is something the U.N. should not accept. The victory over ISIS is welcome. Iran's entry is unwelcome, endangering us, and in my opinion, endangering the region and the world.feedback

Avidgor Lieberman

We are determined to prevent any threat to the security of the citizens of Israel.feedback

António Guterres - United Nations

I understand the security concerns of Israel, and I repeat that the idea or the intention or the will to destroy the State of Israel is something totally unacceptable from my perspective.feedback

António Guterres - United Nations

I will do everything in my capacity to make sure that UNIFIL fully meets its mandate. I dream that I will have the chance to see in the Holy Land two states able to live together in mutual recognition, but also in peace and security.feedback

António Guterres - United Nations

I believe that the horror of the Holocaust should be such that anti-Semitism should now be dead forever.feedback

Nikki Haley

Gen Beary says there are no Hezbollah weapons. That's an embarrassing lack of understanding on what's going on around him.feedback

António Guterres - United Nations

I dream that I will have the chance to see in the Holy Land two states able to live together in mutual recognition, but also in peace and security. To express that the right of existence of the state of Israel doesn't exist or the wish to destroy the state of Israel is an unacceptable form of modern anti-Semitism.feedback

Arthur Schwartz

Steve is one of the best friends that Israel has had in any administration. We're honored that he accepted our invitation.feedback

António Guterres - United Nations

I will do everything in my capacity to make sure that UNIFIL fully meets its mandate. To express that the right of existence of the state of Israel doesn't exist or the wish to destroy the state of Israel is an unacceptable form of modern anti-Semitism.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

Iran is already well on its way to controlling Iraq, Yemen and to a large extent is already in practice in control of Lebanon. We cannot forget for a single minute that Iran threatens every day to annihilate Israel. Israel opposes Iran's continued entrenchment in Syria. We will be sure to defend ourselves with all means against this and any threat. Bringing Shi'ites into the Sunni sphere will surely have many serious implications both in regard to refugees and to new terrorist acts.feedback

Hadley Freeman

These are strange times for liberal Jews who, like me, were born in America only because their grandparents ran there to escape fascism. My great uncle, Alex Maguy, was a truly remarkable man. Born in 1905 in a Polish ghetto, so poor he forever associated hunger with his childhood, by the time he died in 1999, he was a highly successful gallery owner in France, who lived in a flat filled with paintings by Picasso, Matisse, Monet and Chagall.feedback

Iris Danieli

These are all cheap and comfortable places to stay, and in the areas around each kibbutz there are so many things to do, like biking or hiking or driving to see the beautiful desert.feedback

Raz Arbel

We realized we have a product here, which is a very comfortable desert, a desert that you don't have to be an extremist outdoor person to be able to explore. So we collected all the components we have here, the beautiful cliffs and nature parks, the Bedouins themselves – the authentic residents of the Negev – and we found there is so much we have to offer to a solo traveler or a person who doesn't want to travel in a group or spend a lot of money.feedback

Oded Revivi

Netanyahu thanked Jason and he deserves this. Netanyahu knows exactly who the players are that helped him reach that agreement, without Jason this would have continued to be something totally uncontrollable.feedback

Heather Nauert

We're really happy that Mr. Greenblatt is there. There is no freelancing, the efforts that the White House is engaged with, as it pertains to Israel and all of this, we are aware of those efforts, we stay in close contact.feedback

Bethenny Frankel

It is indescribable and it is inexplicable and it's like, if someone wants to talk about like a war zone in Israel, how are you going to explain that to someone? I'm not comparing this to actual war but in my life, you can't even imagine the torment that this has been. There's no way to describe it. I just stifled it in because if I let any of it out, I'm going to totally break down. I can't believe this happened to me.feedback

David Gellman

We were about to close the excavation when all of a sudden, a corner of the mosaic inscription peeked out between the pipes and cables. Amazingly, it had not been damaged. Every archaeologist dreams of finding an inscription in their excavations, especially one so well preserved and almost entirely intact.feedback

Ray Conner

This relationship is almost 70 years old and we don't have a lot of all-Boeing customers anymore. The relationship between our company, Israel and El Al is one of the more precious ones we have.feedback

David Maimon - El Al Israel Airlines

I am sure (because of) this aircraft, most of our passengers will be back, especially the business segment. We have old aircraft. But in two years from now we will have a new fleet. The average age will be about five, six years.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

I will discuss with (Putin) Iran's accelerated effort to entrench militarily in Syria. This creates a problem not just for Israel, but for all the of countries of the Middle East and the whole world.feedback

Yoav Gallant

We will find the common diplomatic and political interest with the United States, and later on with Russia, in order to combine our efforts and effect Iran's return to its place. We should also prepare the IDF (Israel Defence Forces) so it ... has relevant plans (for Syria), should that be required.feedback

Alexander Petrovich Shein

We take the Israeli interests in Syria into account. Were it up to Russia, the foreign forces would not stay.feedback

Sima Kadmon

After he turned Trump into the best thing that has happened to the Jews in 5,000 years, into the greatest friend of Israel in history, how can Netanyahu now issue a condemnation and talk about an anti-Semitic and racist president?feedback

Helen Mirren

If people treat me like the age I am, I get absolutely insulted, really cross. I hate when people give up their seat for me. I'm Eastern European, you know; [we've] got these dark souls. That dark Slovenian soul is about to come out. She's only got to do a nice interview with Allure.feedback

Olivia M. Farr

Walnuts can alter the way our brains view food and impact our appetites. Our results confirm the current recommendations to include walnuts as part of a healthy diet.feedback

Gershom Gorenberg

The man who built his rhetoric around the Holocaust is willing to speak softly about anti-Semitism and revived Nazism.feedback

Richard Spencer

Jews are vastly over-represented in what you would call 'the establishment' and white people are being dispossessed from this country. An Israeli citizen, someone who has a sense of nationhood and peoplehood, and the history and experience of the Jewish people, you should respect someone like me who has analogue feelings about whites. You could say I am a white Zionist – in the sense that I care about my people, I want us to have a secure homeland for us and ourselves. Just like you want a secure homeland in Israel.feedback

Ehud Barak

You can't say you don't see things here that bear a certain similarity – when you look at the Lehava demonstrations or La Familia activity, or the ranting against journalists covering Netanyahu investigations.feedback

Yair Lapid

There aren't two sides. When Neo-Nazis march in Charlottesville and scream slogans against Jews and in support of white supremacy, the condemnation has to be unambiguous.feedback

Ruth Thomann

Actually, we have numerous Jewish guests and I noticed that a certain number don't take a shower before going to swim. Given that other guests asked me to do something, I naively wrote this poster. I would have done better to address the poster at all the hotel's clients.feedback

Nitzan Chen

These remarks call into question the ability of Karram, the representative of a foreign network, to cover -- as a professional journalist -- the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in which, according to his own words, he is taking an active part.feedback

Helen Mirren

[Donald] just said and did what ever it took to get what he desired. That is quite terrifying, because it means there's a lack of morality there and a lack of conscientiousness.feedback

Ella Glikson

The study also found that when the participants were asked to respond to emails on formal matters, their answers were more detailed and they included more content-related information when the email did not include a smiley. We found that the perceptions of low competence if a smiley is included in turn undermined information sharing.feedback

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah

The American administration, with all available and possible means, will not be able to damage the strength of the resistance.feedback

Helen Mirren

You look at old Mel there, and she is one of the most powerful women in the world because she could take him down. She almost did that with the hand. [Ivanka] talks a good game, but there's no substance. Her book is so ignorant about how the majority of women live, talking about 'Make time for yourself to have a massage.' Puh-lease.feedback

Hassan Nasrallah - Hezbollah

The Assad regime is here to stay, his army is here to stay, this Syrian state and its institutions are here to stay…President Bashar Assad is here to stay.feedback

Dan Diker - Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs

Clearly there is a fundamental difference. Israel was founded on a fundamentally democratic ideal, in which freedom of the press and expression is a fundamental part of its national identity culture. In the situation of the Gulf states and the Saudis, they are all [trying to shut] Al Jazeera in their boycott of Qatar.feedback

Dan Diker - Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs

Al Jazeera has been guilty of terrible and fundamentally unprofessional reporting that uses incitement to please their radical paymasters in the Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood. Israel is saying, Enough is enough,' and that you cannot exploit our democratic system in order to assault our democratic country via your propagandistic and radical-Islamic reporting.feedback

Magdalena Mughrabi - Amnesty International

This is a brazen attack on media freedom in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The move sends a chilling message that the Israeli authorities will not tolerate critical coverage.feedback

Raed Othman

Israel practices violence against the press and operates outside of the law. If they had anything against Al Jazeera, they would have gone to court. Anyone who criticizes Israeli practices or policy is always accused for incitement.feedback

Nir Barkat

My fellow citizens, during the last eight years, the Obama administration has pushed for a settlement-building freeze, has surrendered to the Iranians and radical Islam and abandoned Israel to a hostile U.N. resolution.feedback

Ron Dermer

It's an old story that the United Nations gangs up against Israel. What is new, is that the United States did not stand up and oppose that gang-up. And what is outrageous is that the United States was behind that gang-up.feedback

Oren Kristal

He used to tell us whenever we were mourning someone that we should consider that they are being buried in the land of Israel, most of the people he knew did not get to be buried in a grave when they died.feedback

Nabil Abu Rdeneh

We are committed to peace based on the two state solution. We informed the American Administration that we are ready for peace on this basis. And we are waiting now for the American delegation to work together toward peace.feedback

Jonathan Greenblatt

It is deeply troubling that this biased resolution appears to be the final word of the administration on this issue.feedback

Ravina Shamdasani - United Nations

We are deeply concerned about the steady deterioration in the humanitarian conditions and the protection of human rights in Gaza, . Israel, the State of Palestine and the authorities in Gaza are not meeting their obligations to promote and protect the rights of the residents of Gaza.feedback

Mohammed Kareem

If Germany paid reparations to Israel, then Americans should pay for what they did in Iraq.feedback

Fatih Uenal

There is an expectation that people coming to Germany will assume that sense of historical duty. That makes the higher incidence of anti-Semitic views among Muslims hard to talk about, and so we haven't found a good way of engaging different sorts of people about the violence that went on here.feedback
