Notable Quotations:
“We don’t understand politics as the art of the possible, but we understand it as a struggle between wills, and for us, we will not surrender to the status quo.”--Al-Awsat, January 27, 2006 
“If you [the Israeli people] want to keep living where you are living now, and if you want us [the Palestinians] to live where we are living now, this is okay. But recognition of the statehood of Israel is impossible. If you want security, that is fine, but this land belongs to me.”--Ha’aretz, February 5, 2006.
“The government has faced great difficulties from the very beginning, and Palestinians must give the government needed support. Government Ministers bring in money from the outside and the Palestinian security forces try to stop them.” --Al Jazeera, June 23, 2006
