    Not only the Arabs opposed Partition, This was also opposed by M. Begin and his ideological group (proto-Likud) in the Yishuv. After all, how can you give a piece of Eretz Yisrael? Some Arabs learned the lesson, such as Abbas, and some Jews also learned it, the people from Likud who quit to form Kadima. But members of today's Likud haven't learned. They do recognize now that the Yishuv's majority was correct in 1947 on a tactical level, and they respect Ben-Gurion for his wisdom and courage. But they did not learn the lesson of real pragmatism. Do not bite more than you can chew, or you will end up suffocating.
