    ""Stop quoting the real Ben Gurion without quoting the entire speech. - Gabe1 You should read some of Ben Gurion's work. Try this sample from "We and Our Neighbors" which he published in 1931: "The Arab community in Palestine is an organic, inseparable part of the landscape. It is embedded in the country. The Arabs work the land, and will remain." Of course he had not yet given up and accepted the idea that partition was necessary. Did you know he resigned as PM one time because of a matter of principle involving the cover-up of the Lavon Affair (Operation Suzannah)? He had real principles. He was a far more complex, idealistic, and clever, and painstaking than you imagine. You might try reading a couple of his books. "Israel: A Personal History" and "The Jews In Their Land" are not hard to find.
