    U.N. EGYPTIAN AMBASSADOR AHMED MEGUID: "Egypt also, Mr. President, considers that Israel must be held responsible for whatever changes it introduces in the occupied territories, or the illegal exploitation of the natural wealth and resources of this territory. As these changes and measures are null and void, they also constitute obstacles in the path to achieve a peaceful settlement. They endanger not only peace and security in the area, but in the whole world."



    PLO AMBASSADOR ZEHDI TERZI: "The forces of occupation are still persisting in the application of the barbaric policy of discrimination and suppression against the Palestinian people in its own land. It is a fact that occupation and repression engender resistance, and it is the right and the duty of people under foreign rule and alien domination to resist, including armed resistance."



    NUSEIBEH: "Has anyone ever heard of military occupation lasting for a whole decade? We are familiar with conquest and colonisation, which have lasted for decades and even centuries. How does Israel view its decade of occupation? Is it occupation, or is it annexation? Perhaps the esteemed Security Council should ask Israel for clarification of its real intention, so that at least each side knows where he stands, and can reappraise his policies accordingly."
