- Ben Gurion, David (1886-1973) ( 84 quotations )
" Among ourselves there can be no debate about the integrity of the Land of Israel, and about our ties and right to the whole of the Land....
When a Zionist speaks about the integrity of the Land, this can only mean colonization [hityashvut] by the Jews of the Land in its entirety.
That is to say: from the viewpoint of Zionism the real touchstone is not confined to whom this or that segment of the Land belongs to politically, nor even to the abstract belief in the integrity of the Land. Rather, the aim and touchstone of Zionism is the actual implementation of colonization by the Jews of all areas of the Land of Israel. "
Moshe Dayan, Haaretz, 18/2/1973.
