In Hebrew with translation. ********** “Dear Zavion, I am attaching Advocate Dr. Aria Arazi’s letter. Unfortunately, the letter did not reach me earlier, only this morning, and I wrote him that I would contact you, and only when I receive your reply would I let him know. I will be very grateful if you could let him know your reply by messenger…”********** An early supporter of Zionism, Ben-Gurion moved to Palestine in 1906 to take up the life of a farmer. After his expulsion by the Turkish government at the outbreak of World War I, he rallied the support of Britain and the U.S. and called for increased Jewish immigration to Palestine. His decades of ongoing Zionistic activities led to a strengthening of the Jewish community in Palestine, and on May 14, 1948, Ben-Gurion proclaimed the birth of the State of Israel. As prime minister and minister of defense, he created the Israeli army, often using military force to thwart Arab violence. In 1963, he retired from politics and several years later he moved to the Negev kibbutz of Sde-Boker. ********** Written in dark blue ink on lined and numbered notebook paper with a slightly irregular right edge and light folding; in overall fine condition.
