U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson: “This crisis would not have erupted, I suggest, if the Palestinian people had a perspective of hope towards a viable Palestinian state, if they had an economy that provides jobs and opportunities, if they had more control over their security and the legal and administrative processes that define their daily existence—in short, if the Palestinians did not still live under a stifling and humiliating occupation that has lasted almost half a century.”
