Turn Quotes

I think it's only in a crisis that Americans see other people. It has to be an American crisis, of course.

SIR WILLIAM BLACKSTONE

What cause have we to complain about their fierce hatred to us? For eight years now, they sit in their refugee camps in Gaza, and before their eyes we turn into our homestead the land and villages in which they and their forefathers have lived.
