In 1923, hard line revisionist leader Ze'ev Jabotinsky advocated "an iron wall of (superior) Jewish military force" to dictate future events on its terms and discourage Arab hope of prevailing.
In 1940, Jewish Agency Colonization Department head, Joseph Weitz said:
"Between ourselves, it must be clear that there is no room for both peoples together in this country. We shall not achieve our goal if the Arabs are in this small country. There is no other way than to (get rid of) all of them. Not one village, not one tribe should be left."
The later published secret Koenig Report said "We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population."
Former IDF Chief of Staff Raphael Eitan (1978 - 1983) said:
"We declare openly that the Arabs have no right to settle on even one centimeter of Eretz Israel....Force is all they do or ever will understand. We shall use the ultimate force until the Palestinians come crawling to us on all fours."
In 1937, future Israeli prime minister David Ben-Gurion said:
"We must expel the Arabs and take their place and if we have to use force, to guarantee our own right to settle in those places - then we have force at our disposal."
