    "These two clowns, Ben and Danite (or Don Quixote and Sancho Panza), are so far to the left of Labor Zionism that they`re closer to PFLP." - Orquest You must have flunked your Remedial Israeli History class badly Orquest. David Ben Gurion founded Histadrut, which went beyond being a mere Labor Union. It was a labor union which owned companies. Got that? The workers owned the companies, even banks. During the period when David Ben Gurion served twice as PM (and Defense Minister) Israel was a socialist country in the Western European mold of the time, but was due the Kibbutz movement far more socialist than any of those countries. You realize he was a Kibbutznik. You do know what a Kibbutz is don't you? One could say that when ben Gurion split from Labor and founded RAFI, that was the moment the Mapai started it's long slide to the right and insignificance. I bet you didn't know that Ben Gurion was such an crusading labor leader that he sought to organize not only Jewish workers, but Arab ones as well. . . "The State of Israel will prove itself not by material wealth, not by military might or technical achievement, but by its moral character and human values." - David Ben Gurion
