The following are excerpts from an interview with Syrian historian and author Dr. Georgette 'Attiyya. Syrian TV aired this interview on June 15, 2005.
Dr. Attiyya: The Palestinian woman's womb is a factory for the conflict; it produces fighting children. After this fighting child is produced, he is taught: 'This is your land, this is your country, you will fight for it, stand on it, and die for it.' Therefore, a very important connection exists between motherhood, land, and blood."
