"Men who beat and kill their wives and daughters do not do so because their religion allows it. More often than not, they follow their religious obligations selectively, implementing injunctions that suit their personal convenience; it is thus hypocritical and seriously misleading to insist that every aspect of a Muslim’s actual daily conduct is an exact mirror image of Islamic teachings, or that true Islam is what most Muslims do. No one mirrors their faith perfectly, even though most aspire towards such perfection. The same applies to other religions and those who profess them. Unfortunately, reality shows that within the distorted mindset and worldview of chronic abusers, the above-mentioned verses and Prophetic traditions are ignored."
"By asking the UN to dictate a solution to the territorial issue--a state within the 1967 lines with its capital in Jerusalem--the Palestinian leadership is in effect accepting a partial settlement, restricted to territory, in order to bypass its own impossible preconditions for a comprehensive settlement. Yet a UN resolution rejected by Israel could merely exacerbate the conflict."

"If I were a Jew living anywhere around the world and had no ties to the area and had never set foot there, I would have the right to go any time I wanted and get an Israeli passport. In fact, the Israelis encourage that. I, however, am not Jewish but I was born and raised in Jerusalem, my parents, family and friends still live there and I cannot go back! I am neither a criminal nor a threat to one of the most powerful countries in the world, yet I am alienated and expelled from my own home."
