Terrorisom and war crimes

Yizhak Shamir,
Prime Minister of Israel, 1983 - 1984

(The Palestinians) would be crushed like grasshoppers … heads smashed against the boulders and walls.

Ehud Barak,
Prime Minister of Israel, 1999 – 2001

Yet when Tal asks Barak whether he would have joined a “terrorist” organization had he been a Palestinian under Israeli occupation, he replies in the affirmative.

Ariel Sharon,
Israeli Prime Minister

Israel may have the right to put others on trial, but certainly no one has the right to put the Jewish people and the State of Israel on trial.

Ariel Sharon,
Israeli Prime Minister

I don’t mind if after the job is done you put me in front of a Nuremberg Trial and then jail me for life. Hang me if you want, as a war criminal. What you don’t understand is that the dirty work of Zionism is not finished yet, far from it.

David Ben-Gurion,
first Israeli Prime Minister

Let us not ignore the truth among ourselves … politically we are the aggressors and they defend themselves… The country is theirs, because they inhabit it, whereas we want to come here and settle down, and in their view we want to take away from them their country.

David Ben-Gurion,
first Israeli Prime Minister

We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population.
