Quotes

"When citizens lose their jobs, the government doesn't lift a finger to help them," he added. "We should establish a real socialist government, which stops spewing slogans and starts actively helping its citizens."
"He wasn't in my father's house for 13 years so he should not claim to know what my father would think about me entering politics," she said. "What does he know about my father. He apparently does not know him at all."
"We are in a very tough position in the world. I don't see any black--white here," he says. "Time isn't on our side we are living in a political vacuum there's a need to show some hope or some direction. We have an opportunity for widespread cooperation with the moderate Arab world, like Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia the Gulf States. To this end, we need to push the Palestinian issue hard bring everyone into it. But I still think that there's no chance of reaching an agreement with the Palestinian at this point in time without first solving the problem of Hamas."
