亚伯拉罕·B·约书亚(A. B. Yehoshua)名言

Israel is too attached to America, too influenced by America. It should be connected to Europe. America is based on mythology - the free man, the individual, the open frontier. Europe is more conscious of history. Take Britain and Shakespeare. You shape your identity through history.

以色列太依附美国,太受美国影响。它应该与欧洲相连。美国是建立在神话的基础上的——自由的人,个人,开放的疆域。欧洲的历史意识更强。以英国和莎士比亚为例。你通过历史塑造你的身份。

World War II was a trauma that paralysed writers. It was something metaphysical, diabolical.

第二次世界大战是一场使作家瘫痪的创伤。这是一种形而上学的、邪恶的东西。

I think about the Arabs not as enemies but as cousins. Even when we are in a fierce conflict with them, they are more of a kind of family - with all the problems of a family. We have to live with them.

我认为阿拉伯人不是敌人而是表亲。即使当我们与他们发生激烈冲突时,他们更像是一个家庭——有着家庭的所有问题。我们必须和他们一起生活。

For 50 years - that is, for most of my adult life - I worked tirelessly for the two-state solution in the face of countless frustrations, both on the part of the Israeli governments and the Palestinian Authority.

50年来,也就是在我成年后的大部分时间里,面对以色列政府和巴勒斯坦权力机构的无数挫折,我为两国解决方案不懈努力。

Our synagogues are spread all over the world, and we want people to respect them and look after them. And we have to respect the places of prayer of others.

我们的会堂遍布世界各地,我们希望人们尊重和照顾他们。我们必须尊重别人祈祷的地方。

Let us not forget: The Palestinians in Gaza are our permanent neighbors, and we are theirs.

我们不要忘记:加沙的巴勒斯坦人是我们的永久邻国,我们也是他们的。

In my own view, Hamas's frustration derives from a lack of legitimization by Israel and by much of the world. It is this frustration that leads them to such destructive desperation. That's why we need to grant them status as a legitimate enemy - before we talk about an agreement or, alternatively, about a frontal war.

我个人认为,哈马斯的挫败源于以色列和世界大部分地区缺乏合法化。正是这种挫折导致了他们如此毁灭性的绝望。这就是为什么在我们讨论协议或者正面战争之前,我们需要给予他们合法敌人的地位。
