You can say many things about David Ben-Gurion. Chief of these is that he was brave, tough, and that he loved his people, its history and its country. He could be brutally honest. His behavior verged on the tyrannical. He was, however, personally honest. He had no illusions about the Arabs (or the non-Jewish World).
That's why its beyond disgusting, that Ehud Olmert exploited B-G's yahrzeit to whine and plead with Arabs to be nice to us. He openly told them we'll pay an price if they'll only be nice to us. He'll rip people out of their himes, endanger the security of our country, abandon the Negev to Kassam rockets, free as many nice Palestinian patriotic suicide bombers in potentia as they want and let Hamas rearm. Just don't hurt us. Pleassssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssse, don't hurt us.
He's pathetic, and so are his whining cohorts, Livni, Peretz, Shitreet and Dichter. As Bernard Lewis notes, weakness is held in contempt in the Arab World, as well it should.
B-G would be disgusted.
I know I am.
