David Ben Gurion read Israel's proclamation of independence and is regarded as the founder of the nation.

"When a Jew, in America or in South Africa, talks to his Jewish companions about 'our' government, he means the government of Israel." [1]


A Quote by David Ben-Gurion

Document:The Israel lobby“If I were an Arab leader I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural: we have taken their country … We come from Israel, but two thousand years ago, and what is that to them? There has been anti-semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They only see one thing: we have come here and stolen their country. Why should they accept that?”
