Quote Of The Day

Quote Of The Day

When we arrived here, there was already a people that was living here for many years.. it is clear that what is desired is Eretz Yisrael according to the Torah, but if a government would arise that would say we must concentrate the settlement to large blocs and forgo isolated settlements - I could understand that. It is precisely like when Menachem Begin returned half the Sinai and destroyed Yamit, but nobody claimed he was  a hater of Israel. 
Jerusalem must remain for the final step of negotiations. I hope that she will not be harmed. We can continue to live there for many years, just like today. Also after the Six Day War Ben Gurion gave orders to Teddy Kollek to take down the wall and unify East and West Jerusalem to one authority. What? DO Tel Aviv and Yaffo not live in peace? In Haifa do Arabs and Jews not live together peacefully?

  -- Chief Rabbi of Tel Aviv (and formerly of Israel) Yisrael Meir Lau

  2. "... after the Six Day War Ben Gurion gave orders ... to take down the wall"

    Are you sure you got this quote right? How could Rav Lau make such a mistake? Ben Gurion was still alive in June 1967, but he had long since retired from all political power.

    Levi Eshkol was prime minister at the time.

  3. good catch. I took it from Kipa http://www.kipa.co.il/now/46323.html where it was quoting from an interview in yediot.

    Someone got it wrong...
