“ We must expel Arabs and take their place. Up to now, all our aspirations have been based on an assumption [...] that there is enough room in the land for the Arabs and ourselves. But if we are compelled to use force not in order to dispossess the Arabs of the Negev or Transjordan, but in order to guarantee our right to settle there our force will enable us to do so.
David Ben Gurion (Ministerpräsident Israels 1948-54, 55-63. 1937, an seinen Sohn Amos zur Frage der Übernahme des ganzen Palästina.)
