    that Ben Gurion's acceptance of the "lesser Israel" never for a moent meant the negation of eventually gaining the "greater Israel", the biblical heartland. It simply was not tactically feasible at that time. Read the works of Rabbi Judah Magnes and you will see the head of the snake very early on, not simply after the 6 Day War, although that was certainly the catalyst for the lebensraum policy. It is logical since the two pillars of zionism were and are,take as much of the "Greater" as you can however you can when the timing is advantageous and sttle that land at all costs with as many Jews as possible whichh of course entials the dispossession or disenfranchisement of Arab residents. That's it and in the long run, this ideology that has taken this direction will prove utterly unsustainable, as Magnes knew.
