Quotation from David Ben Gurion “Strengthening the Hagana, accelerating the [Zionist] enterprise and imposing Hebrew Labor” — 1929

During a meeting of the Histadrout.

Author : Thematics :
" I must rise up with all my strength against [joint organisation] and [the claim] that there is no place for the demand of Hebrew Labor at one hundred percent in the colony. I believe that we must fight especially for one hundred percent [...] I’m not afraid to say that we must seize the moment for several things: strengthening the Hagana, accelerating the [Zionist] enterprise, and also for imposing Hebrew Labor. "
