Beelzebub addresses the Palestinian Authority

bq. … what peace will be giv’n
To us enslav’d, but custody severe,
And stripes, and arbitrary punishment
Inflicted? and what peace can we return,
But to our power hostility and hate,
Untam’d reluctance, and revenge though slow,
Yet ever plotting how the Conqueror least
May reap his conquest, and may least rejoyce
In doing what we most in suffering feel?

(Paradise Lost, book 2, line 330)

Yes: when I remember the way that Arabs in Jerusalem look at Jews, I think of that: %(sane)”what peace can we return,But to our power hostility and hate?%”
