Ehud Barak (Prime Minister of Israel on May 17, 1999): had he been born a Palestinian, he “would have joined a terrorist organization.”

60 Bill Maxwell, “U.S. Should Reconsider Aid to Israel,” St. Petersburg Times, December 16, 2001.

As Ben-Gurion (first Prime Minister of Israel) told Nahum Goldmann, president of the World Jewish Congress:

“If I was an Arab leader, I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural: we have taken their country. Sure, God promised it to us, but what does that matter to them? Our God is not theirs. We come from Israel, it’s true, but two thousand years ago, and what is that to them? There has been antisemitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They only see one thing: we have come here and stolen their country. Why should they accept that?”

Nahum Goldmann, The Jewish Paradox, trans. Steve Cox (Grosset and Dunlap, 1978), p. 99.

Both quotes from the book “THE ISRAEL LOBBY AND U.S. FOREIGN POLICY
