I thank you for your kind words. I have a certain affection for Israel and it's history. Haaretz has in the past censored post in which I deemed you a "psuedoepigrapher extrordinare", and I think they did it because the censor simply did not know what the term means. I think you do. David Ben Gurion was a most extraordinary man. Anyone familiar with the situation Jewish Palestinians found themselves in, or the very precarious course of Zionism, has to be aware that his prudence, and vision were crucial to the creation of Israel. You represent him very well. Shalom.
