Always keep in mind Ben-Gurion's old maxim

Reader comment on item: Annexing the West Bank Would Hurt Israel

Submitted by G Marcus (United States), May 24, 2020 at 14:28

... To maintain our strategic compass, we always need to keep in mind Ben-Gurion's old maxim: "It's not important what the Gentiles say, it's important what the Jews do."

Had Ben-Gurion listened to the many scaremongers, there would be no Jewish State today!

Daniel Pipes replies:

Proclaiming the Jewish state was an epochal event. Extending Israeli sovereignty to parts of the West Bank is hardly more than symbolism.
