“We shall never stop until we can go back home and Israel is destroyed….The goal of our struggle is the end of Israel, and there can be no compromises or mediations…the goal of this violence is the elimination of Zionism from Palestine in all its political, economic and military aspects….We don’t want peace, we want victory. Peace for us means Israel’s destruction and nothing else.”


Quoted in the Washington Post (29 March 1970).
