A Palestinian Ben-Gurion? I Wish

It appears that since the chances for a new Israeli Ben-Gurion’s birth are nil, someone in Israel has begun to wish for a Palestinian one.

It seems incredible - a veritable messianic vision is materializing before our eyes. In a ceremony at Sde Boker marking 40 years since David Ben-Gurion’s death, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week spoke about the talks with the Palestinians and made a personal wish. “I wish a Palestinian Ben-Gurion would emerge,” he said.
