Since you are fond of Ben-Gurion quotes, here is one you did not include. Ben-Gurion told his party members: "In our state there will be non-Jews as well -- and all of them will be equal citizens; equal in everything without exception; that is: the state will be their state as well" (quoted in Karsh, Middle East Quarterly, Spring 2005). Does that mean there were no wrongs done to Palestinian Arabs in the 1948 War and after by Zionists? No. There were many wrongs on both sides, but you are systematically distorting the Zionist side.
