    had enough, There was a time when the Land of Israel was called Eretz Yisrael there were Jews who lived there who were called Halutzim aka Pioneers. When the Turks were in charge the Jews who owned the orchards preferred to hire the local Arabs because they "knew how to work". The Halutzim didn't know "to work", or so the orchard owners thought. Actually, they were not hired because they were considered troublemakers who might ask for a decent wage, but . . . Soon enough the Halutzim went to business for themselves and proudly called for Avodah Atzmit, and Avodah Ivrit, a policy that stated that meant Jewish labor, and only Jewish labor. That worked until Profitability entered game. Non-Jews of the Land of Israel cost less, then came the Phillipinos, the Romanians, the . . . and by then the State of Israel became one of the twenty leading industrialized nations of the world. After that, the rest is history.
