Zitate Golda Meir

„Moses schleppte uns 40 Jahre durch die Wüste, um uns an den einzigen Ort im Nahen Osten zu bringen, an dem es kein Öl gibt.“

— Golda Meir
auf einem Bankett am 10. Juni 1973 während des Staatsbesuches von Bundeskanzler Willy Brandt in Israel; zitiert bei Pierre Heumann: Riskanter Reichtum. Jüdische Allgemeine 8. Oktober 2010

„We hate war. We do not rejoice in victories. We rejoice when a new kind of cotton is grown, and when strawberries bloom in Israel.“

— Golda Meir
Context: We owe a responsibility not only to those who are in Israel but also to those generations that are no more, to those millions who have died within our lifetime, to Jews all over the world, and to generations of Jews to come. We hate war. We do not rejoice in victories. We rejoice when a new kind of cotton is grown, and when strawberries bloom in Israel. As quoted in As Good as Golda : The Warmth and Wisdom of Israel's Prime Minister (1970) edited by Israel Shenker and Mary Shenker, p. 28

„We have always said that in our war with the Arabs we had a secret weapon — no alternative.“

— Golda Meir
Context: We have always said that in our war with the Arabs we had a secret weapon — no alternative. The Egyptians could run to Egypt, the Syrians into Syria. The only place we could run was into the sea, and before we did that we might as well fight. As quoted in LIFE magazine (3 October 1969), p. 32

„There were no such thing as Palestinians“

— Golda Meir
Context: There were no such thing as Palestinians. When was there an independent Palestinian people with a Palestinian state? It was either southern Syria before the First World War, and then it was a Palestine including Jordan. It was not as though there was a Palestinian people in Palestine considering itself as a Palestinian people and we came and threw them out and took their country away from them. They did not exist. As quoted in Sunday Times (15 June 1969), also in The Washington Post (16 June 1969)

„It’s no accident many accuse me of conducting public affairs with my heart instead of my head. Well, what if I do? . . . Those who don’t know how to weep with their whole heart don’t know how to laugh either.“

— Golda Meir
Context: It’s no accident many accuse me of conducting public affairs with my heart instead of my head. Well, what if I do?... Those who don’t know how to weep with their whole heart don’t know how to laugh either.

„It is a dreadful thing to see the dead city. Next to the port I found children, women, the old, waiting for a way to leave.“

— Golda Meir
Context: It is a dreadful thing to see the dead city. Next to the port I found children, women, the old, waiting for a way to leave. I entered the houses, there were houses where the coffee and pita bread were left on the table, and I could not avoid [thinking] that this, indeed, had been the picture in many Jewish towns [i. e., in Europe, during World War II]'. As acting head of the Jewish Agency Political Department visited Arab Haifa and reported to the Jewish Agency Executive (6 May 1948); as quoted in "The birth of the Palestinian Refuge problem revisited" by Benny Morris, p. 309/10 of 2nd Edition 2004, citing Protocol of meeting of JAE, 6 May 1948, CZA 45/2

„To be or not to be is not a question of compromise. Either you be or you don’t be.“

— Golda Meir
When questioned on Israel's future, in The New York Times (12 December 1974)

„In Israel, we read from right to left.“

— Golda Meir
To Henry Kissinger, US Secretary of State, who had written her that he considers himself 'an American first, Secretary of State second, and a Jew third'
