“I was 12-years old when the occupation came about. I’m a father of four children now. My twin daughters will be married next month. I would hate to be a grandfather under occupation.”



Ephraim Sneh, Israeli deputy minister of defence

“The war didn’t change my life but it changed the region.”





Shimon Peres, Israeli deputy prime minister

“If it could have been prevented, I would have preferred to have prevented it.”






Shaukat Aziz, prime minister of Pakistan

“Well, I was much younger then, but I can say war at any time is not a good thing.”





HH Sheikh Salman Bin Hamad Al Khalifa,

crown prince and commander-in-chief of the Bahrain Defence Force

“This war was a long time ago for us. My generation is not the generation that lost the war, so, we have a different perspective and so what I think concerns us is the more immediate problem of what is going to happen inside Palestine today.
