Palestine, recognised officially as the State of Palestine by the United Nations and other entities, is a de jure sovereign state[1][2] in Western Asia claiming the West Bank (bordering Israel and Jordan) and Gaza Strip (bordering Israel and Egypt)[3] with Jerusalem as the designated capital, although its administrative centre is currently located in Ramallah.

The entirety of the State of Palestine has been occupied since 1948, first by Egypt and Jordan and then by Israel after the Six-Day War in 1967.[4] Palestine has a population of 5,051,953 as of February 2020, ranked 121st in the world.[5]

Nelson Mandela on Palestine

In 1990 Nelson Mandela visited the United States for the first time after being freed from 27 years of imprisonment in apartheid South Africa.

Here, in sectioned out footage of Ted Koppel's interview on ABC News, Nelson Mandela sets out his forthright views on Palestine, Israel and Yasser Arafat, and thanks Fidel Castro of Cuba and Muammar Gaddafi of Libya for their unconditional support in the ANC's struggle against apartheid:

George Carlin“Sanctity of life. You believe in it? Personally, I think it’s a bunch of shit. Well, I mean, life is sacred? Who said so? God? Hey, if you read history, you realize that God is one of the leading causes of death. Has been for thousands of years. Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Christians all taking turns killing each other ‘cause God told them it was a good idea. The sword of God, the blood of the land, vengeance is mine. Millions of dead motherfuckers. Millions of dead motherfuckers all because they gave the wrong answer to the God question. “You believe in God?” “No.” Boom. Dead. “You believe in God?” “Yes.” “You believe in my God? “No.” Boom. Dead. “My God has a bigger dick than your God!” Thousands of years. Thousands of years, and all the best wars, too. The bloodiest, most brutal wars fought, all based on religious hatred.”George Carlin
Election/Fraud“I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake. And if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.”Hillary Clinton2006
Sigrid Kaag“Happily there were pro-Israeli demonstrators in Tel-Aviv that said the road of Benjamin Netanyahu, that soundbite, with an almost racist demagogue.... about the Palestinian peace-partner that has been isolated. But look at their environments, day in, day out, 1 million people are prisoners.”Sigrid Kaag10 June 1996
Daniel Pipes“There can be either an Israel or a Palestine, but not both. To think that two states can stably and peacefully coexist in the small territory between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea is to be either naive or duplicitous. If the last seventy years teach anything, it is that there can be only one state west of the Jordan River. Therefore, to those who ask why the Palestinians must be deprived of a state, the answer is simple: grant them one and you set in motion a chain of events that will lead either to its extinction or the extinction of Israel.”Daniel PipesApril 1990
