EXCERPT: "Stop fetishising this so-called Jewish state that has caused so much misery...Peace can never exist when one group exists on special rights...this kind of policy belongs in the nineteenth century...we Palestinians must talk about an inclusive vision...Israelis have been ruthlessly manipulated...we will not allow you to maintain an apartheid state in the middle east, but when you give it up, there will be a place for you." Ali Abunimeh
EXCERPT: "Israel has morally lost its right to even exist as a state." Artist Samia Halaby
EXCERPT: "How, do you think I feel, Samia Halably, a Palestinian, from Jerusalem, a stolent town? Haifa is an Arabic word; it a town stolen by the Israelis; how do I feel when I hear that Haifa is an Israeli town?" Samia Halaby
