Via Cryptogon:

In 1937 Winston Churchill said of the Palestinians: “I do not agree that the dog in a manger has the final right to the manger even though he may have lain there for a very long time. […] I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in an taken their place.”

In 1969, Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir said, “Palestinians do not exist.”

Prime Minister Menachem Begin called Palestinians “two-legged beasts.”

Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir called them “grasshoppers” who could be crushed.

This is the language of Heads of State, not the words of ordinary people.

– Quoted from “Come September” by Arundhati Roy in The Algebra of Infinite Justice, pp. 284-285

    This doesn’t surprise me at all. Hell, they shelled a UN checkpoint without so much as an apology.

    I was never much into Mid-East politics, until my brother loaned me his copy of Robert Fisk’s “Pity the Nation.” I read quite a bit more about the recent history of the Palestine conflict (as far back as WWI, when those arbitrary lines in the sand were first drawn up by the West). Israel’s track record with regards to human rights is abhorrent.
