Rabin ,Yitzhak

  • A diplomatic peace is not yet the real peace. It is an essential step in the peace process leading towards a real peace.

  • Enough of blood and tears. Enough!

  • I believe however that peace is attainable regardless of the Arabs mentality, society or government.

  • I considered the prevention of war as the test of our security policy; in addition to being able to rapidly and forcefully end any war forced upon us.

  • Israel has an important principle: It is only Israel that is responsible for our security.

  • It is not worth the paper it is written on unless it is backed by the kind of force that will make the other side consider the penalties too heavy to break the agreement.

  • No Arab ruler will consider the peace process seriously so long as he is able to toy with the idea of achieving more by the way of violence.

  • The struggle to get weapons is continuous, but the United States will aid us, if it finds Israel displaying a willingness for peace.

  • We have to pass one year in our relationship with the United States by walking on tiptoes. If we pass successfully the year 1975 and we will reach 1976, we will gain not one year but two.

  • You don't make peace with friends. You make it with very unsavory enemies.
