- Ben Gurion, David (1886-1973) ( 84 quotations )
" "I never felt hatred of the Arabs and none of their actions ever awakened vengeful emotions in me »
But... « The destruction of Jaffa, the city and the port, will happen and it will be for the best.” “This city, which grew fat on jewish immigration and settlement, is asking for destruction when it swings a hatchet over the heads of its builders and benefactors. When Jalla falls into hell I will not be among the mourners.” "
