    Both your posts highlight that the differences during Ben Gurion's time of the various political persuasions, were remarkably different approaches in handling the Arabs or Jewish dissenters to that of official Israeli mandate of the time (that is the Irgun, Stern, etc). For example, as you suggested the Altalena incident, Begin's leadership. But hopefully today, there is less divisiveness among the Israeli population in establishing reconciliation with the Arab world. I would hope this is the situation, when you eliminate the unhelpful rhetoric by some. Ben Gurion's contribution, as you say Mark Lincoln, of holding some pragmatic and sensible policies during Israel's early years, are certainly of valued learning for us today. It's unfortunate the extremists Palestinians lack the vision currently, as Tosefta mentions. We're in a holding situation on the roadway to peace in the middle east. Stuck!
