Hungary had "become subjugated to Zionism, it has become a target of colonisation while we, the indigenous people, can play only the role of extras.”“Anti-Jewish Rally in Hungary Capital,” BBC News, May 4, 2013, http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-22413301.

Khader Habeeb, senior PIJ official, May 2013

“The equation has yet to change. The Oslo Accords are still the reference and we continue to refuse them, as we see them as a deviation from the correct Palestinian direction, which is to resist and liberate the entire land.”Asmaa al-Ghoul, “Islamic Jihad Movement Maintains Popularity in Gaza,” Al-Monitor, May 7, 2013, http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2013/05/islamic-jihad-movement-gaza-palestine.html.

Jobbik MP Márton Gyöngyösi, March 2013

“As we can see the Zionist organizations pressure openly not only our government but the jurisdiction as well. Seeing the deeds and hearing the statements from the government we suspect that there has not remained a grain of sovereignty in Hungary but the government continuously acts under the pressure of the Zionist lobby powers.”“Hungarian Politician: Government Controlled by Zionists,” Algemeiner, March 12, 2013, http://www.algemeiner.com/2013/03/12/hungarian-politician-government-controlled-by-zionists.

Musa (Robert) Cerantonio, February 14, 2013

"One of the leaders of the sons of the pigs and the monkeys in Israel, one of their military colonels, one of the Israeli commanders, said: “If the Islamists take Syria, we are finished.” If they take Syria, Israel is finished. The Muslims will unite, they will have their Caliphate, and they will conquer the world.”Australian Islamist Musa Cerantonio Glorifies Jihad, Supports Jabhat Al-Nusra In Syria,” MEMRI, March 11, 2013, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/7070.htm.

Abu Ahmad, military spokesman of PIJ’s Al-Quds Brigades in Gaza, January 2013

“Every offensive Israel wages on Gaza is usually harder than the previous. This is why we are focusing now to strengthen our infrastructure and to store more weapons… Our local rockets proved their high level of proficiency, especially in the latest round of the battle.”Abeer Ayyoub, “Iran Top Backer of Palestinian Islamic Jihad,” Al-Monitor, January 9, 2013, http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2013/01/palestinian-islamic-jihad.html.

Abu Ahmad, military spokesman of PIJ’s Al-Quds Brigades in Gaza, January 2013

“Although we lost some of our sites and resources, the Palestinian resistance was able to hit back at Israel harshly, instantly and deep into Israel’s main cities, shaking their security and forcing them into a cease-fire... The most important thing we have learned was that the Israeli enemy needs to be shocked from the first day… You have to send a powerful message on the first day in any future military confrontation with Israel, and this is what we have done. We are in a state of gradual escalation, and Israel will take into consideration our military capability to use this tactic in any future conflict.”Mohammed Suliman, “Armed Palestinian Factions Confident After Battle With Israel,” Al-Monitor, January 10, 2013, http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/ar/originals/2013/01/gaza-military-lessons.html.

Mohammed Morsi, former Egyptian president, January 2013

“Morsy told the senators that the values of Islam teach respect for Christianity and Judaism, and he asserted repeatedly that he had no negative views about Judaism or the Jewish people, but then followed with a diatribe about Israel and Zionist actions against Palestinians, especially in Gaza. Then Morsy crossed a line and made a comment that made the senators physically recoil in their chairs in shock, [U.S. Senator Chris] Coons said. ‘He was attempting to explain himself ... then he said, ‘Well, I think we all know that the media in the United States has made a big deal of this and we know the media of the United States is controlled by certain forces and they don't view me favorably,’ Coons said. The Cable asked Coons if Morsy specifically named the Jews as the forces that control the American media. Coons said all the senators believed the implication was obvious. ‘He did not say [the Jews], but I watched as the other senators physically recoiled, as did I,’ he said. ‘I thought it was impossible to draw any other conclusion.’”Josh Rogin, “Exclusive: Morsy implies Jews control the American media,” Foreign Policy, January 23, 2013, http://thecable.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2013/01/23/exclusive_morsy_implies_jews_control_the_american_media.

Ramadan Shallah, PIJ secretary-general, November 2012

“Iran has been providing us with the support we needed to defend ourselves in the face of the Zionist occupation. Iran supported us militarily and financially and with all we need to remain steadfast on our land. We hope that all the Arab countries do the same.” Lena Odgaard, “Head of Palestinian Islamic Jihad Praises Relationship with Iran,” Al-Monitor, November 30, 2012, http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2012/al-monitor/shallah-interview.html.

Márton Gyöngyösi, Jobbik MP, November 2012

“I know how many people with Hungarian ancestry live in Israel, and how many Israeli Jews live in Hungary. I think such a conflict makes it timely to tally up people of Jewish ancestry who live here, especially in the Hungarian Parliament and the Hungarian government, who, indeed, pose a national security risk to Hungary.”Marton Dunai, “Anger as Hungary Far-Right Leader Demands Lists of Jews,” Reuters, November 27, 2012, http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/11/27/us-hungary-antisemitism-idUSBRE8AQ0L920121127.

Khaled Meshaal, chief of Hamas's political bureau, November 2012

“The popularly elected Egyptian leadership is giving everyone a lesson. The Egyptian leadership has shown that it is taking a new course and adopting a new vision. The era when Israel did what it pleased is over.” David D. Kirkpatrick and Mayy El Sheikh, “Israeli Attacks Are Test of Loyalty for Egypt’s Morsi,” New York Times, November 15, 2012, http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/16/world/middleeast/israels-gaza-strikes-test-egyptian-leader.html.
