A Jewish State

“WE, the members of the National Council, representing the Jewish people in Palestine and the Zionist movement of the world...

“HEREBY PROCLAIM the establishment of the Jewish State in Palestine, to be called ISRAEL.”

– Declaration of the State of Israel, May 14 1948

“Despite the steady arrival in Palestine of Jewish colonists after 1882, it is important to realize that not until the few weeks immediately preceding the establishment of Israel in the spring of 1948 was there ever anything other than a huge Arab majority.”

– Edward Said, The Question of Palestine.
