Quotes

Hamas has a genocidal charter against the Jewish people, which reads: "The Day of Judgment will not come until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say, O Muslims ... there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him."
Now Oberst has dropped his lawsuit, with his reps saying, "Conor's only goal throughout these court proceedings has been to expose the truth. As per his statement of last week: he looks forward to moving on to happier times."
"We are not saying that everybody should always be on the internet forever. There are certain cases where we have removed stories - they usually come direct to newspaper concerned."
"But as a matter of principle, I will not make it to parliament through co-option… I was always elected."
