亚伯拉罕·B·约书亚(A. B. Yehoshua)名言

The question of boundaries is a major question of the Jewish people because the Jews are the great experts of crossing boundaries. They have a sense of identity inside themselves that doesn't permit them to cross boundaries with other people.

边界问题是犹太人的一个重大问题,因为犹太人是跨越边界的伟大专家。他们内心有一种认同感,不允许他们与他人越界。

I don't think that when Zionism began there was a claim that we were losing - even in part - our capacity to contribute to other peoples.

我不认为当犹太复国主义开始时,有人声称我们正在丧失——甚至部分地——为其他民族作出贡献的能力。

亚伯拉罕·B·约书亚

One of the dreams of Zionism was to be a bridge. Instead, we are creating exclusion between the East and the West instead of creating bridges; we are contributing to the conflict between East and West by our stupid desire to have more.

犹太复国主义的梦想之一就是成为一座桥梁。相反,我们在东西方之间制造排斥,而不是制造桥梁;我们愚蠢地想要得到更多,这助长了东西方之间的冲突。

亚伯拉罕·B·约书亚

We always knew how to honor fallen soldiers. They were killed for our sake, they went out on our mission. But how are we to mourn a random man killed in a terrorist attack while sitting in a cafe? How do you mourn a housewife who got on a bus and never returned?

我们总是知道如何纪念阵亡士兵。他们是为了我们被杀的,他们执行我们的任务。但是,我们如何悼念一个坐在咖啡馆里死于恐怖袭击的随机男子呢?你如何哀悼一个上了公共汽车却再也没有回来的家庭主妇?

In my DNA, the Zionist gene is extremely strong.

在我的DNA里,犹太复国主义者的基因非常强大。

And this is one of the major questions of our lives: how we keep boundaries, what permission we have to cross boundaries, and how we do so.

这是我们生活中的一个主要问题:我们如何保持边界,我们有什么权限跨越边界,以及我们如何做到这一点。

亚伯拉罕·B·约书亚

Jerusalem doesn't belong only to Israelis and Palestinians, Muslims and Jews, but to the world.

耶路撒冷不仅属于以色列人和巴勒斯坦人,穆斯林和犹太人,而且属于世界。

亚伯拉罕·B·约书亚

So with truth - there is a certain moment when one can say, this is the truth and here I put a dot, a stop, and I go to another thing. A judge has to put an end to a deliberation. But for a historian, there's never an end to the past. It can go on and on and on.

所以对于真理-有一个特定的时刻,当一个人可以说,这是真理,在这里我把一个点,一个停止,我去另一件事。法官必须停止审议。但对于历史学家来说,过去永远不会结束。它可以继续下去。
