During the XX Zionist congress held in Geneva one month before World War II.
- Ben Gurion, David (1886-1973) ( 88 quotations )
" Call me an anti-Semite, but I must say is : we are choked with shame with what is going on in Germany, Poland and America — that Jews don't have the courage to fight. Can we not be brave anywhere in the world ?... We don't belong to that Jewish people. We don't want to be that sort of Jew. "
