And this is, in fact, central. And Israel is silent." - Tariq Ramadan

I, for one, just cannot believe that the value of settlements for Israel is bigger than the damage these settlements do as an obstacle to peace." - Heinz Fischer

"I do think that it is impossible for us to think only in terms of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and not think in terms of what's happening with Syria or Iran or Lebanon or Afghanistan and Pakistan.
