US State Dept: Policy of Reducing Israel to "Historical Proportions"

"We don't need Israel for influence in the Arab world. On the contrary, Israel does us more harm than good in the Arab world. (...) We can't negotiate about the existence of Israel, but we can reduce its size to historical proportions."  -- Henry Kissinger

The above quote is part of a December 1975 memorandum of a conversation that took place; in Paris, France; between the US Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, and the Iraqi Foreign Minister, Sa'dun Hammadi.

Men Writing a Letter - Gabriel Metsu

By Stephen Cheney


                                                             Turn every jewel in the light
                                                             and see where it glitters.

                                                             but who wants unshared oblivion?
                                                             A crystal touched with sunlight
                                                             can glow beyond its borders.
