David Ben-Gurion

first Prime Minister of Israel
Courage is... the knowledge of how to fear what ought to be feared and how not to fear what ought not to be feared.More David Ben-Gurion quotes [08/24/2011 03:08:41]
A Christian state should be established [in Lebanon], with its southern border on the Litani river. We will make an alliance with it. When we smash the Arab Legion's strength and bomb Amman, we will eliminate Transjordan too, and then Syria will fall. If Egypt still dares to fight on, we shall bomb Port Said, Alexandria and Cairo.... And in this fashion, we will end the war and settle our forefathers' account with Egypt, Assyria, and Aram.More David Ben-Gurion quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If the antisemites want to hate, let them hate, and let them go to hell.More David Ben-Gurion quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The most dangerous enemy to Israel's security is the intellectual inertia of those who are responsible for security.More David Ben-Gurion quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been anti-Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?More David Ben-Gurion quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
