What 'traditions' and 'Zionism' could he be talking about? From Ben-Gurion's famous letter to his son, quoted in Morris, Righteuos Victims, p. 138: "No Zionist can forgo the smallest portion of the Land Of Israel. [A] Jewish state in part [of Palestine] is not an end, but a beginning ..... Our possession is important not only for itself ... through this we increase our power, and every increase in power facilitates getting hold of the country in its entirety. Establishing a [small] state .... will serve as a very potent lever in our historical effort to redeem the whole country." Its clear that Ben-Gurion, and Bibi, include the West Bank as "the whole contry." What he wants to negotiate with the Palestinian elite are the payments that will be made and the legal fictions to be employed to be able to call the Palestinian ghettos of Gaza and a Wet Bank, a "state."
