“If we keep repeating the same thing of one cycle after another cycle of violence every few years and expecting that in one hand for some the elimination of the Palestinian people and the Palestine problem, and that is not happening.

So that if you keep repeating that, expecting different results than what you're receiving, which is more and more of tragedies and pain and hatred and deepening of the conflict, then you are delusional, you are not living reality.”
