Wednesday January 15, 2020

 
Quote of the day:
“I expect the state authorities in the area, both the army and the Civil Administration, to treat Palestinians, especially those who are innocent of any crime, as they would Israelis who are injured parties.

Thursday January 9, 2020

 
Quote of the day:
"For years the Washington-Jerusalem axis has had a tiring debate about the essence of the "credible military threat" toward Iran, which will deter it from breaking into nukes.

The Iranians felt it and decided that, with all due respect to Shahid Soleimani, the survival of the regime is paramount."
