    Whatever they say now in regards to complete lifting of whomever wanted to leave, Meir may have still thought that they were restricting the emmigration of some who were more desirable on account of the rebuilding efforts of nations following the Second World War. Anyway, it is common knowledge that Israelis have always had a rather blunt or in your face way of communicating. I read about that a long time ago. It was in regards to how Arabs might tend to hold back and not tell you what they really thought for a long time while Israelis just laid it out up front. So it was blunt and not politically correct in terms of the present. Golda isn't worshipped by anybody. Jewish People usually don't like to be worshipped. All they're told is that they're supposed to plant a tree and write a book. They aren't told, "Go become a Saint!" I hope nobody worships me. I'm just a lazy bum that likes where he lives but also Haaretz Israel and Obama and Pretty Women. See? I'm biased too! Who isn't?
