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

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.

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.

"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)"

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.

"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).,

Well I tend to refer to the politicians, in other words the Israeli regimes.

New antisemitism is the concept that a new form of antisemitism has developed in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, emanating simultaneously from the far-left, radical Islam, and the far-right, and that it tends to manifest itself as opposition to Zionism and the State of Israel. The concept generally posits that much of what is purported to be criticism of Israel by various individuals and world bodies, is, in fact, tantamount to demonization, and that, together with an alleged international resurgence of attacks on Jews and Jewish symbols, and an increased acceptance of antisemitic beliefs in public discourse, such demonization represents an evolution in the appearance of antisemitic beliefs.

You have just accepted that thois one was genuine by inventing the stupidly untrue suggestion that "Goldman was an enemy of Ben-Gurion."

Now you are flailing around to defend what was said.
I don't tell lies - I never have
You, in contrast, have heaped up lie after lie to push your hate-filled agenda.
That's what you people do
Your blustering idiot of a mate asked if I would like to be linked to me claiming to know more than the signatories of the treaty - I said "yes please"
He rode off into the sunset.
He claimed to produce have produced a lisrt of my "lies" - he produces only a list of things I have said which contradict his own unqualified arguments
That makes him a meglomanic liar
I have just given you a whole bundle of statements by Ben Gurion, Theodor Hertzl and others - you choose to pretend they are not there
That makes you a liar.

"We must do everything to ensure they [the Palestinians] never do return ... The old will die and the young will forget," said David Ben-Gurion, the founder of Israel, in 1949."

No Jim. I have produced what he really said.
The people you support have to lie because they have no case otherwise.

The quote "The old will die and the young will forget..." was his prediction in 1949 about the refugees who had left Israel.

Remember that the far more numerous Jewish refugees who had been thrown out of Arab states were given no hope of ever returning. Israel had to settle them all.
The Arab states chose not to resettle the Arab refugees, incarcerating them in camps without human rights or hope to the present day!

The old Jewish refugees have died and the young have forgot, but happily in the Jewish state.
That is how it should have happened for Arab refugees in the Arab states.

It's just that (a) there is no independent verification of the quote; (b) it jibes perfectly (suspiciously so) with Goldmann's own views; (c) Goldmann's animosity toward Ben-Gurion was both longstanding and well known; (d) Goldmann waited some twenty-three years after the statement was allegedly made to publicize it; and (e) Ben-Gurion, conveniently dead for five years at the time of the book's publication, was in no position to acknowledge or deny Goldmann's veracity."

"Remember that the far more numerous Jewish refugees who had been thrown out of Arab states were given no hope of ever returning."

It is a fact that many more Jews than Arabs were displaced in 1948-49
Now there are no displaced Jews because Israel settled them all, but millions of Arab refugees because the Arab states refused to settle them.

ZIONIST CABAL
Zionist cabal tries to hijack Wikipedia
January 9, 2014
By jm
CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America) is the Orwellian name of a pro-Israel media watchdog group that monitors, influences, and seeks to control all mainstream media coverage of issues affecting public opinion on all matters related to Israel. It has some 1000 members and chapters in several major American cities. It's staffers scour all media coverage of Israel and "engage and directly contact" (some would say "harass") reporters, editors, producers and publishers concerning what they regard as "distorted or inaccurate coverage" (some would say "the truth") about Israel. They also offer "factual information" (some would say "propaganda") to refute those "errors". The role and influence of the organization is explained in this segment from the excellent documentary "Peace, Propaganda, and the Promised Land."

However, the media landscape is now quickly changing in ways that make CAMERA's tactics less effective. Traditional news organizations are using fewer and fewer journalists and professional editors, and media consumers are increasingly turning to independent websites, blogs, and organizations like Wikipedia for their news and information. This change in how media is produced and consumed might lead some to think that standard pro-Israel narrative that has become the norm in the mainstream media, especially in the US, is about to come undone. But maybe not, for it seems that organizations like CAMERA are now changing their tactics in response to the changing media landscape. A recent article in the Electronic Intifada, based on leaked emails between members of CAMERA, reveals a brazen attempt by that organization to infiltrate Wikipedia precisely in order to slant the complex web of information it contains in a pro-Israel manner.

From the article:
A series of emails by members and associates of the pro-Israel group CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America), provided to The Electronic Intifada (EI), indicate the group is engaged in what one activist termed a "war" on Wikipedia.
A 13 March action alert signed by Gilead Ini, a "Senior Research Analyst" at CAMERA, calls for "volunteers who can work as 'editors' to ensure" that Israel-related articles on Wikipedia are "free of bias and error, and include necessary facts and context." However, subsequent communications indicate that the group not only wanted to keep the effort secret from the media, the public, and Wikipedia administrators, but that the material they intended to introduce included discredited claims that could smear Palestinians and Muslims and conceal Israel's true history.
With over two million articles in English on every topic imaginable, Wikipedia has become a primary reference source for Internet users around the world and a model for collaboratively produced projects. Openness and good faith are among Wikipedia's core principles. Any person in the world can write or edit articles, but Wikipedia has strict guidelines and procedures for accountability intended to ensure quality control and prevent vandalism, plagiarism or distortion. It is because of these safeguards that articles on key elements of the Palestine-Israel conflict have generally remained well-referenced, useful and objective. The CAMERA plan detailed in the e-mails obtained by EI appears intended to circumvent these controls.
After being exposed, CAMERA's plan to infiltrate and control Wikipedia was abandoned, at least temporarily. But this story is a useful reminder of the extent to which these pro-Israeli groups are prepared to go to control the narrative on the Middle East conflict and how vigilant everyone else must be in protecting and spreading the truth about this conflict.

"It is that line of blue writing at the bottom of the post."
There is no "line of blue writing at the bottom of the post" Keith - oyu on the cooking sherry again
The quote you put up traces back directly to the organisation I named "Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America" - that is where it originated and nobody else has ever substantiated it
It is a propaganda attempt to smear a leading Zionist to cover up what Ben Gurion said
The Israeli regime has made doubly sure by locking up all Beg Gurion's papers that contain such incriminating evidence despite they should be legally accessible to all
Your childish "you lose" stupidity is unbelievable - you appear to treat the Jewish people with such contempt that you regard these arguments as a "win-lose" game, like 'Grand theft auto' - are you really that mindless?
Nobody will ever "win" anything until they come up with a decent argument
You will only do that when you ,font color=red>ADDRESS EVERY SINGLE STATEMENTT - BY BEN GURION AND OTHERS, THAT YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN
So far, you have used a smear by an extreme right Israel group as a diversion away from the main point
Beg Gurion said what he said, as did all the others you have had quoted
Israel's aim has always been tio rid the area of Arabs and create a purely Jewish State - that is ethnic cleansing by any definition.
Answer that, and you might "win something" - which appears to be your sole aim
You are basically an antisemite with no interest in the Jewish People, when you are not trying to "win" something, you are defending an ultra-right Israeli administration

Jim, I gave the link in my post and repeated it for you.
It is the blue writing that follows the quote.

It is a propaganda attempt to smear a leading Zionist to cover up what Ben Gurion said

It does not. My article was written for Jews who would know if it lied about their relationship.
It does not deny the statement, it merely points out that Goldman alone heard it, no-one could verify it, it contradicted everything he really said, and Goldman kept quiet for twenty years then put it in a book when Ben Gurion was safely dead and unable to deny it.

It is an documented, unverified and highly unlikely claim.

You complain about my sources but you use extreme political sites that are hardly household names. Has anyone heard of "Examined Life?" It has not even got a Wiki page. Is it even safe to click on such sites?

ADDRESS EVERY SINGLE STATEMENTT - BY BEN GURION AND OTHERS, THAT YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN

No. I have shown that some are fake so none can be relied on. It would be a full time job to follow up the screenfulls of shit you put up.

Irael's aim has always been tio rid the area of Arabs and create a purely Jewish State

Not very successful then Jim!! Has one single Arab left Israel since 1949?
Has the Arab population crashed from persecution?
No. It thrives and grows faster than the Jewish population despite Jewish immigration.

Your excuse then was the he was acting as Devil's Advocate' and putting himself in the posiion of the Palestinians rather than stating what he believed himself

I made that point before I discovered that we only have Goldman's word that he said it at all!
It is still a valid point.

So a leading Zionist is a liar

Why not. He was hardly a "leading Zionist" by then though.
As Edward Tivnan said in his 1987 book The Lobby,
"Goldmann had created the Presidents Conference to prevent the kind of dissent among American Jewish leaders that he himself was now sowing. The raison d'etre of the group was to present a united front to the White House on Middle East matters. But, of course, that was back when Goldmann's friends were running Israel.
Now that [Menachem] Begin was running the Jewish state, Goldmann was willing to do anything to undermine his policies – including destroying his own pressure group."

The Lobby: JEWISH POLITICAL POWER AND AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY by Edward Tivnan (Simon & Schuster: $17.95; 288 pp.)
May 31, 1987|Steven L. Spiegel | Spiegel is a professor of political science at UCLA. His latest book, "The Other Arab-Israeli Conflict: Making America's Middle East Policy, From Truman to Reagan," won a 1986 National Jewish Book Award

"Edward Tivnan's "The Lobby: Jewish Political Power and American Foreign Policy" is a snide, sometimes bitter, largely trivial and even boring account of the role of the American Jewish community's efforts on behalf of Israel. Not as informed or as thoughtful as other critical accounts of pro-Israeli efforts in this country, Tivnan paints his story in black and white. Worthy of approval are Israeli and American Jewish critics of Israeli government policies, liberals, moderate Arab leaders, especially King Hussein, and American politicians who criticize Israeli policy. Tivnan bears no sympathy for conservatives either in Israel or America, the Likud Party in Israel, vociferous American supporters of Israel, including politicians, Jewish leaders and in particular the organization most closely identified as the pro-Israeli lobby in Washington, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)."

I think a win for Mr Corbyn may be a poisoned chalice, and could end his career.
The biggest problem is Brexit, Mr Corbyn has always been anti-EU, while the Parliamentary Party are solidly in favour of retaining membership.....They are quite capable of political assassination once in power. Mr Corbyn is also at odds with the Parliamentary Party on other issues, i.e. the replacement of Trident.

A win for Labour given the present crop of MPs could lead to a complete breakdown of authority.....not a good thing when taking on the Bureaucrats of Brussels.

Personally I would prefer to see a modest victory for Mrs May, who at least will go into battle with a united force.

Labour getting nobbled in Scotland, which I'm sure will be more or less repeated, makes it next to impossible for them to win. If the gap can be closed to something like what was like in 2015, and the LibDems pick up a few seats, there's a remote possibility of a hung parliament I suppose but with the Tories being the far larger party. That would be very interesting in these new days of two-party politics. The implosion of UKIP is another intriguing factor. Corbyn has done a lot better than anyone really expected and Theresa May looks wooden and unattractive. Then there's the distinct possibility of a low turnout due to election fatigue/referendum fatigue/they're-all-crap-anyway syndrome. I think Keith may be right. Yes, I really did say that!

Hi Steve

I understand what you are saying but I detect hope hope rather than expectation in your comments.

As we all know the polls cannot be used as anything like accurate.

I went to a birthday party yesterday where half of the 40 guests were from Cheshire and half from Liverpool.

From the comments almost all the Cheshire side will not be voting for Corbyn. No surprise here because they all voted for Brexit in the referendum.

But surprisingly, a large percentage of the Liverpool folk who voted against leaving said the will not be voting Labour any more and will be voting for Mrs May. This IS surprising because they usually vote Labour.

So it seems that forecasting accurately what will happen is almost impossible.

Regards

MikeL2

So, half will not be voting Labour because they are for Brexit and half will not be voting Labour because they are for remaining. How does that work then? The Tories, goaded by UKIP, took to the polls to ask an unqualified and misled populace to make a decision that they should have made in the first place and because the country is split over it it is all the fault of Jeremy Corbyn?

Ah well. As they say around here, there's nowt so queer as folk.
