"Goldman was an enemy of Ben-Gurion."
No he was't
"After the war he worked actively with David Ben-Gurion towards the creation of Israel,[28] although he, with Moshe Shertok, advised Ben-Gurion, in vain, that the declaration of independence be delayed in order to allow more time for reaching a diplomatic entente with the Arabs.[29][30][31] He was concerned that an Arab-Israeli war would break out after the British left their Mandate and the State of Israel was proclaimed.[citation needed]"
You are making this up - why should you do this - thetorical question - you can't stop lying through your teeth
Even if he was he would not make such a thing up publicly - a leading and respected Zionist lying about a respected Jewish Zionist leader - are you completely insane
Zionists have intended to drive out the Arabs as far back as THeodor Hertzl - whose quote you chose to ignore
The other quote from Ben Gurion regarding driving out Arabs comes fro a letter to his son in 1937
Now respond to everything, not just the bits you think you can wriggle around

Some more quotes for you to ignore or deny
"Ben-Gurion said yesterday that he was prepared to accept the [Peel partition] proposal of the Royal commission but on two conditions: [Jewish] sovereignty and compulsory transfer ..... As for the compulsory transfer-- as a member of Kibbutz Ramat Hakovsh [founded in 1932 in central Palestine] I would be very pleased if it would be possible to be rid of the pleasant neighborliness of the people of Miski, Tirah, and Qalqilyah." (Expulsion Of The Palestinians, p. 70)
"With regard to the refugees, we are determined to be adamant while the war lasts. Once the return tide starts, it will be impossible to stem it, and it will prove our undoing. As for the future, we are equally determined to explore all possibilities of getting rid, once and for all, of the huge [Palestinian] Arab minority [referring to the Palestinian Israeli citizens of Israel] which originally threatened us. What can be achieved in this period of storm and stress [referring to the 1948 war] will be quite unattainable once conditions get stabilized. A group of people [headed by Yosef Weitz] has already started working on the study of resettlement possibilities [for the Palestinian refugees] in other lands . . . What such permanent resettlement of 'Israeli' Arabs in the neighboring territories will mean in terms of making land available in Israel for settlement of our own people requires no emphasis." (Benny Morris, p. 149-150)
"I imagine that the INTENTION is to get rid of them. The interests of security demand that we get rid of them." (1949, The First Israelis, p. 28)
Ben-Gurion commented on the proposed Peel Commission Partition plan as follows in 1937:
"We must EXPEL ARABS and take their places .... and, if we have to use force-not to dispossess the Arabs of the Negev and Transjordan, but to guarantee our own right to settle in those places-then we have force at our disposal." (Expulsion Of The Palestinians, p. 66).,

What a shame then that these alleged aspirations of Ben Gurion are still a million miles from being achieved. The fact that that no Israeli regime has ever shown any appetite for achieving them is at the root of most of the problems the Middle East has endured for over half a century.

"questionable, Unverified Source: Clifford claims that Ben-Gurion wrote: "If I were an Arab leader I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural, we have taken their country." In fact, according to Nahum Goldmann, Ben-Gurion allegedly said this to him. Goldmann was an adversary of Ben-Gurion, and he came out with this alleged quote, verbatim, in his book published two decades later (The Jewish Paradox, 1978), five years after Ben-Gurion died. There was no recording of the quote, and Ben-Gurion was no longer around to dispute it."

"And, finally, here's a real Ben-Gurion quote that Clifford chose not to share:
In our state there will be non-Jews as well — and all of them will be equal citizens; equal in everything without any exception; that is: the state will be their state as well. ...The attitude of the Jewish State to its Arab citizens will be an important factor—though not the only one—in building good neighbourly relations with the Arab States. If the Arab citizen will feel at home in our state, and if his status will not be the least different from that of the Jew, and perhaps better than the status of the Arab in an Arab state, and if the state will help him in a truthful and dedicated way to reach the economic, social, and cultural level of the Jewish community, then Arab distrust will accordingly subside and a bridge to a Semitic, Jewish-Arab alliance, will be built... (Ba-Ma'Araha Vol IV, Part 2, pp. 260, 265, quoted in Fabricating Israeli History, Efraim Karsh, p.67)"

Jim,
Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), pp. 121-122.

Goldman was an enemy of Ben-Gurion.
No-one but Goldman heard him say it. He claims it was in a private conversation, that he never mentioned for ten years then put it in his book when Ben Gurion was safely dead.
It contradicts everything he really said.

In no sense is such an unsubstantiated claim a "documented fact" and you know that because I have put this before you at least twice before.
The quote is a fake.

Incidentally
Another quote for you to deny, this time from Theodor Herzl - founder of modern Zionism

The earliest insider information we have on Zionism's thinking is from the diary of Theodor Herzl, the founding father of Zionism's colonial-like enterprise. He wrote:
"We shall try to spirit the penniless population across the border by procuring employment for it in the transit countries, while denying it any employment in our own country… expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discreetly and circumspectly."
Those words were committed to paper by Herzl in 1895 but they were not published (in other words they were suppressed) until 1962.

"If that is not just another lie, QUOTE ME DOING IT!!"

Exactly how many times have you denied this
It's certainly documented - hasn't stopped you denying it - witout a shred of proof
"There has been Anti-Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?"
-- Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), pp. 121-122.
You certainly claim to know more than:
"Nahum Goldmann (Hebrew: נחום גולדמן‎) (July 10, 1895 – August 29, 1982) was a leading Zionist and the founder and longtime president of the World Jewish Congress."
I won't even begin to mention the number of times you have dismissed fully documented evidence on the Sabra Shatila massacre - or fully documented reports of the atrocities that took place during the Gaza incursions, or the documented condemnation of the Israeli settlments from international bodies
Your whole arguments have been based on denial of facts - you have never offered anything else.

You, on the other hand, put up virtually nothing and dismiss everything that doesn't fit your agenda as "made up shit"
"It was you wasn't it who claimed that you knew more about the negotiations related to the Anglo-Irish Treaty"
Liar - I have never made such a claim
On the contrary - your entire case on Ireland has been based on ignorance of and hate for the Irish people - brainwashed children, celebrations for mass murder, the gullibility of a nation who really didn't want independence but were conned into it by foreigners....
At the time the whole of Ireland was commemorating the event that virually ended Britain's dominance over the country you weer depicting them as bloodthirsty morons - you are a pair of racist idiots, and like all racists you are both as thick as pig-shit about the people you attempt to invoke hatred against
Your intranegent refusal to accept documented facts was spectacularly demonstrated with your total refusal to accept what had been written about Bin Laden's business dealings - didn't fit so it wasn't true
Sabra Stadium couldn't be used as it was a wreck, Falagists being moved in from the airport, bulldozers being used to bury bodies...... all backed up with written evidence, all dismissed as "made up Carroll shit".
I certainly know more than you pair of comedians, but who doesn't
You think you can put this over by talking down to people - you are totally unable to stop yourself from doing it "Jom"
Know nothings tend to be like that

"I do not believe it because I am well read on this,"
I very much doubt if Keith has ever read a book from cover to cover in his like - his is a world of hastily cgathered and selective cut-'n-pastes (you are so arrogant, you can't even be bothered to do that - you just pontificate in a bullying manner and hope nobody checks)
No quotes contradicting the statement in question, not a single shred of evidence he has read anything (thought all out arguments - he even admitted he was "just putting Israel's case"
Arguing on the basis of just one side's point of view and failing to put things in context is not being "well read"
Keith appears to be coming down with a nasty bout of the giggles - perhaps he should lay off the sauce

Declaration of intent by Ben Gurion
"When the idea of partition was first raised years earlier, for instance, Ben-Gurion had written that "after we become a strong force, as the result of the creation of a state, we shall abolish partition and expand to the whole of Palestine". Partition should be accepted, he argued, "to prepare the ground for our expansion into the whole of Palestine". The Jewish State would then "have to preserve order", if the Arabs would not acquiesce, "by machine guns, if necessary."

According to Ben Gurion, it was stolen
"The 1948 Palestinian exodus, also known as the Nakba (Arabic: النكبة‎‎, "al-Nakbah", literally "disaster", "catastrophe", or "cataclysm"),[1] occurred when more than 700,000 Palestinian Arabs fled or were expelled from their homes, during the 1948 Palestine war.[2] Between 400 and 600 Palestinian villages were sacked during the war, while urban Palestine was almost entirely extinguished.[3] The term "nakba" also refers to the period of war itself and events affecting Palestinians from December 1947 to January 1949.
The precise number of refugees, many of whom settled in refugee camps in neighboring states, is a matter of dispute[4] but around 80 percent of the Arab inhabitants of what became Israel (50 percent of the Arab total of Mandatory Palestine) left or were expelled from their homes.[5][6] Approximately 250,000-300,000 Palestinians had fled or been expelled prior to the Israeli Declaration of Independence in May 1948; a fact which was named as a causus belli for the entry of the Arab League into the country, sparking the 1948 Arab-Israeli War.
The causes are also a subject of fundamental disagreement between historians. Factors involved in the exodus include Jewish military advances, destruction of Arab villages, psychological warfare and fears of another massacre by Zionist militias after the Deir Yassin massacre,[7]:239–240 which caused many to leave out of panic; direct expulsion orders by Israeli authorities; the voluntary self-removal of the wealthier classes;[8] collapse in Palestinian leadership and Arab evacuation orders.[9][10] and an unwillingness to live under Jewish control.[11][dubious – discuss][12]
Later, a series of laws passed by the first Israeli government prevented them from returning to their homes, or claiming their property. They and many of their descendants remain refugees.[13][14] The expulsion of the Palestinians has since been described by some historians as ethnic cleansing,[15][16][17] while others dispute this charge.[18][19][20]
The status of the refugees, and in particular whether Israel will grant them their claimed right to return to their homes or be compensated, are key issues in the ongoing Israeli–Palestinian conflict. The events of 1948 are commemorated by Palestinians both in the Palestinian territories and elsewhere on 15 May, a date now known as Nakba Day."

As for the myth of thousands years of Arab presence in what is today Israel see Palaestina, ex monumentis veteribus illustrata written by the Dutch scholar and orientalist Adrian Reland. In 1695 Reland undertook a tour of Israel, known as Palestina at the time, and surveyed 2,500 places where people lived at that time.

His most prominent conclusions:

1. Not one settlement in the Land of Israel has a name that is of Arabic origin.

2. Most of the land was empty, desolate.
   Most of the inhabitants were Jews, the rest Christians. The very few Muslims were nomad Bedouins who arrived in the area as construction and agriculture labor reinforcement, seasonal workers. In Gaza for example, lived approximately 550 people, fifty percent Jews and the rest mostly Christians.

3. No Palestinian heritage or Palestinian nation.
The book totally contradicts any post-modern theory claiming a "Palestinian heritage," or Palestinian nation. The book strengthens the connection, relevance, pertinence, kinship of the Land of Israel to the Jews and the absolute lack of belonging to the Arabs, who robbed the Latin name Palestina and took it as their own.

"The cast majority of today's Israelis are settlers who were given land by the British" - Says Jom

Apart from the Jews that had remained in the area and had been happily living there for over 800 years, Jews from the diaspora had been returning to BUY land from 1847 until 1920 when the League of Nations Mandate was created and given to Great Britain to administer. In 1923 77% of the mandated territory was hived off and reserved solely for the Arab population of Palestine. The remaining 23% represents the area we now refer to as Israel, the West Bank and Gaza and in that area anyone of any religion, or any ethnic group could settle. This was a deliberate move on the part of the League of Nations an organisation that Jom seems to have completely forgotten about

Now then Jom care to tell us what land was given by the British to the Jews. As far as I am aware no land was given to anybody - more Jim "made-up-shit".

What was taken over from the Ottomans was territory where land was owned by the Ottoman government and much of the rest belonged to absentee landlords who lived in Cairo and Damascus. In the first period of Jewish settlement (1847 - 1920) the Ottomans made a point of deliberately selling the Jews land that they considered to be useless. In the second period 1920 to 1948 the Jews bought land either from the absentee landlords or from the British Administrators. The largest influx of Jewish settlers arrived AFTER the mandate period

1800 "Palestine":
Jews - 7,000
Christians - 22,000
Muslims - 246,000

1890 "Palestine":
Jews - 43,000
Christians - 57,000
Muslims - 432,000

1914 "Palestine":
Jews - 94,000
Christians - 70,000
Muslims - 525,000

1922 "Palestine":
Jews - 84,000
Christians - 71,000
Muslims - 589,000

1931 "Palestine":
Jews - 175,000
Christians - 89,000
Muslims - 760,000

1947 "Palestine":
Jews - 630,000
Christians - 143,000
Muslims - 1,181,000

So Jom in the 57 years from 1890 to 1947 the Jewish population of "Palestine" went from 43,000 to 630,000 an increase of 587,000 the majority of that increase would not be settlers but children born to Jewish families already there.

In the 70 years since the end of the mandate and the departure of the British the population of Israel has grown from 630,000 to roughly 8,310,000. Now we know where at least 830,000 of those came from - they were Jews forcibly robbed of all their possessions and deported from Arab countries where they had lived for centuries - no "right of return" for them Jom. But as with the previous increase most of the increase in population will be accounted for by the children born to Israelis already settled there.

you have the fact that Israeli seizure of land has been internationally recognised as A CRIMINAL ACT

OK, but why single out Israel?
What about the Chinese in Tibet, the Turks in Cyprus, etc.?

you have the maps
Tthey show that Israel only took land while beating off attacks from it, and have taken not a square centimetre since 1973 while giving away vast swathes including half of Egypt and all of Gaza.

Yoou are the ones accusing the Jews of Israeli regime war crimes and atrocities - not me.

No. That is just you and Steve.

I don't think I have ever come across anybody who as ever attempted to denigrate the Jewish People to the extent you have

We have not.

In return to being allowed to settle as refugees from the RIGHT-WING NAZI Holocaust as refugees of course

Another recognised anti-Semitic statement Jim.

The cast majority of today's Israelis are settlers who were given land by the British - they went on to steal more, as Ben Gurion admitted

He did not. As you know that quote was faked.


"In return for not being attacked, Israel would stop defending itself from those attacks and peace and prosperity would prevail."
An oft repeted lie to defend terrorist war crimes


It is a simple fact. Explain what you think wrong about it.

Israel will never stop its persecution and murder until all the Arabs havce been driven out and Israeel is a monotheistic state


No Arabs have been driven out of Israel. Their community prospers and grows and will soon outnumber the Jews.

"Israel withdrew. Gaza started attacking them,"
You've been given the maps - compare them to even the land the Brits gave


The only extra land is the West Bank.

The "people who know better" are the land thieves and killers who you have admitted you are defending

No. Just putting Israel's side of the story. What is wrong with that?

Respond to the articles or put up some that prove them wrong

it was one article and I did.

Israel never has to give anything in return.

They gave Gaza to the Arabs and what did they get in return - thousands of rockets fired at them.

They are also willing to give Judea and Samaria to the Arabs for a homeland but they will not do so until the security of their citizens is assured.

Israel giving over large tracts of the land that was assigned to them for their homeland by the League of Nations in return for peace and security is overly generous by any standard so saying that they never have to give anything in return is a blatant lie but to be expected from haters like you.

Israel had occupied Gaza.
It was actually quite prosperous then.
Israel withdrew. Gaza started attacking them, so Israel defended itself with a blockade, and incursions when the rocketing gets extreme.

It was the Arabs of Palestine who chose war over peaceful negotiation Shaw. So yes they all must live with the consequences of falling in behind that decision. They are being asked to totally surrender, it was they, under Arafat, who declared war on every single Jew in the world. The same rules applied to Germany, Italy and Japan - if memory serves me correctly, unconditional surrender didn't work out too badly for them.

After 70 years of failure what other choice have the Arabs of Palestine got? Another 70 years of the same? There is no realistic belief in any Two-State solution by anyone, the Palestinian State was always going to be totally dependent economically on Israel. So next time the Arabs of Palestine in Gaza "kick-off" just let them get on with it, no UN brokered ceasefire for Hamas to ignore and defy.

Israel doesn't have to worry about Egypt and Jordan because those two shabbily-governed non-democracies are propped up, conditionally of course, by the west. Of course, Israel is unconditionally propped up by the west, but hey.

The question "what kind of man are you" was a reference to your disgusting assertion that TWO MILLION Gazans, including over a million women and children, are living under a siege that they brought on themselves. I suppose you believe in original sin too. You have claimed so many times that Hamas don't allow elections and rule Gaza with an iron fist, etc., then you blame all two million for a self-imposed blockade, even though, according to you, they have no say. Well I think that isn't too far removed from the blanket attitude to the Jews that eventually led to the Holocaust. Shame on you.

The person who wrote that Guardian piece is clearly a dupe of Hamas propaganda. The "new" document still calls for the liberation of all of historical Palestine (ie Israel), says armed resistance is the means to achieve that goal and does not recognize Israel's right to exist.

We have reaffirmed the unchanging constant principles that we do not recognize Israel; we do not recognize the land occupied in 1948 as belonging to Israel and we do not recognize that the people who came here [Jews] own this land

- Hamas senior official Mahmoud al-Zahar

"The uncomfortable fact is that the west is only too happy to leave the people of Gaza inside their prison; it suits us to do so. We don't care about blighted lives, or about whether the electricity is on six hours or four hours or if there is none at all."

The PA pays Israel for the power it provides to Gaza. Abbas is withholding payment as a power play against Hamas after they refused to purchase fuel from the PA for their only power plant. The PA also wants Hamas to either take full responsibility for the territory it governs, or to relinquish control back to it.

The author of this piece has bought into the blatantly false narrative of victimology as propagated by the fakestinians which has enriched their leaders to obscene levels. She demonstrates the soft bigotry of low expectations toward these people. Jew haters lap it up.

From Steve's Guardian article.

"Both the US and Britain have made clear they believe that nothing significant has altered in Hamas's position. A Foreign Office spokesman said: "They must renounce violence, recognise Israel and accept previously signed agreements."
True, what Hamas means by its new "General Principles and Policies Document" is still murky, particularly as it still holds out the possibility of a Palestinian state in all of historic Palestine. And it has published the changes now as a strategic move to secure its own survival.
After 10 years of a crippling economic siege Hamas is struggling to govern. It desperately needs money – not least to pay for fuel – and it needs Egypt to open its crossing into the Sinai. In return, both Egypt and Arab paymasters demand that Hamas show moderation."

What she gets wrong,
"The uncomfortable fact is that the west is only too happy to leave the people of Gaza inside their prison; it suits us to do so. We don't care about blighted lives, or about whether the electricity is on six hours or four hours or if there is none at all. "

No. We can do nothing while Hamas pursues its insane war against its neighbour!

"By accepting that Hamas has met at least some of the west's conditions,.."

It has not!

"On the Gaza streets there is no expectation of any change, only predictions of a new war."

"So, two million civilians who you claim are powerless to do anything about Hamas have brought that siege on themselves, eh, Teribus?"

Basically yes Shaw. Since 1948 they are and have been conditioned to be professional "victims" firstly by the Egyptians and Jordanians who by force of arms stole and annexed Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem from the former mandated territory of Palestine then shut the "Palestinians" up in Refugee Camps - Not a squeak out of any of you about that (Wonder why?). Later when they withdrew the "Palestinians" under Arafat still kept those other "Palestinians" confined to those camps - now why was that Shaw - Meanwhile over in Israel they took in over 800,000 refugees and guess what? Not a single refugee in sight in the entire country.

The "Leadership" of the "Palestinians" found that by parading these poor unfortunates they could through guilt extract money from the non-frontline Arab states and the international community and a concerted campaign of provocation and management they have set out to paint the democratically elected government of Israel as black as possible. This task is made easier by gullible fools such as yourself and Carroll.

I mean, what kind of man ARE you?

You are asking the wrong person. You should be asking the "Palestinians" what sort of people they are. So far according to their track record they are the sort of people who simply cannot learn from their past mistakes. In 1948 they were sold the lie that the armies of five Arab nations would annihilate the Jews and drive them into the sea and that the land, businesses, farms and homes built up by the Jews would be theirs for the taking. They have been fed that cloud cuckoo-land fantasy ever since. By now after God knows how many attempts they should have resigned themselves to the fact that it is just not going to happen. Those two million people living in Gaza and the 2.1 million living in the West Bank have received more in international aid since 1948 than was made available to Europe under the Marshall Plan (Compare what was accomplished with that to what the "Palestinian Leaders" have done with the money that has been paid to them).

The solution is simple:

1: Stop all attacks against Israel and Israeli citizens immediately
2: Officially recognise the internationally recognised sovereign state of Israel.
3: Affirm that the State of Israel and all its citizens have the right to exist free from attack or the threat of attack.

Do that and the "blockade" stops
Do that and there will be no further armed responses by Israel to Arab provocation.

Ask the Egyptians and the Jordanians if Israel keeps their side of the bargain. As far as I know they have.
