"Ben Gurion said he had aspirations for the West Bank but did NOT say he wanted to take any of it by force in fact he said Arab farmers should NOT be moved.He opposed settlements even where Jews had lived for millenia and had been ethnically cleansed and murdered. He reportedly said give it back or it will corrupt you. Rather a perceptive gentleman." I totally agree. In answer to your other question, you have never called me an anti-semite and you have always been polite and rational, which is why hope I have always been polite and rational with you. However, I, like a lot of other people on here who are critical of Israel, have repeatedly been called an anti-semite by people without your standards. Just yesterday 17 told me that 99.9% of criticisms of Israel were motivated by anti-semitism or greed for Arab money! His post will still be online somewhere. I think it's reasonable to assume he doesn't class me in his 0.1% and he's never accused me of taking Arab money!
