Each department and institution has its own authorities and responsibilities, and they act on that basis. It is wrong to even compare such actions to what is done in Guantanamo or elsewhere by the Americans. They do not stand on a high moral platform to preach to others.
There is no doubt that America is a superpower of the world and we cannot ignore them.
We have no problems with Jews and highly respect Judaism as a holy religion.
The important matter is freedom. When the people choose what they want, it is good for them and for us.
We want all the Palestinians back in their homeland, and then there can be a fair referendum for people to choose the form of state they want. Whoever gets the majority can rule.
When I talk about the assets, that was at the beginning of the talks. I was president then. I'm not president now. When I said it, this would be a sign of goodwill to begin the talks.
We do not trust the goodwill of the U.S. They have cut the ties.
And I gave this directive to them, that if they free our assets in the United States, that would be a sign of goodwill. I have the same idea this time.
We don't have a major problem right now in our country, and life is normal. Things like unemployment, which the youth are suffering from, and the rate of inflation - these are chronic conditions and we have to solve them.
When al-Qaeda was on the run from Afghanistan crossing through Iran, some were arrested and they are imprisoned. Some of them are charged with some actions in Iran.

Condi Rice talks tough but she cannot be tough herself.
