Dawid Ben-Gurion talks to Malcolm Muggeridge
'I am not a Zionist. I am not a Socialist. I am a Jew who wants to live in a world where there is peace among all notions and where there is no exploitation, but mutual help among human beings'.
Exactly twenty years age, in the City Museum of Tel Aviv, David Ben-Gurion proclaimed the State of Israel. More than any other man, he was the author of the new Jewish State. Three times Prime Minister of Israel, he guided the country through its early years and twice led it in war to victory.
Now at the age of eighty-one Ben-Gurion has retired to the desert kibbutz of Sde Boker - back to the land on which he first came to work as an agricultural labourer sixty-two years ago. Tonight he talks about his past, about the history of Israel, and about his aspirations for the future.
Mr. Muggeridge writes:
'The austerity of Ben-Gurion's present way of life appeals to me greatly; I admire those who put aside the trappings of power when they no longer exercise it. His household is rigorously simple; he takes his meals in the communal dining-room with the other members of the kibbutz; apart from his beloved books and papers his possessions would sell for a few pounds. Nor is it by chance that he has chosen this particular place for his retirement; from the beginning he has thought of a Jewish national home or state in terms of work and land - something which finds its supreme realisation in the reclamation of the desert, making it in the words of Isaiah, "rejoice and blossom as the rose"'.
