Israel’s Ariel Sharon Speaks

“Israel may have the right to put others on trial, but certainly no one has the right to put the Jewish people and the State of Israel on trial”
-- Ariel Sharon, BBC News, March 25, 2001.

“Jews as individuals are great individuals — talented, ambitious, intelligent, smart. As a people [though], I would not give them as high a grade. Jews know how to hate.”
-- Ariel Sharon, in an interview with the Israeli daily Yediot Aharanot, Feb. 1, 2002. Quoted in the Los Angeles Times, Feb. 2, 2002, p. B3.
