Quotation from Uri Lubrani “Were there no Arab students, perhaps it would be better” — Apr. 4 1961
Ben Gurion's Advisor for Arab Affairs from 1960 to 1963.
- Lubrani, Uri ( 1927-2018) ( 1 quotation )
" With one hand we take what we give them with the other. We give them tractors, electricity, and progress, but we take land and restrict their movement …Were there no Arab students, perhaps it would be better. If they [Arabs] would remain hewers of wood perhaps it would be easier to control them. "
