In 1956, Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion spoke on radio – in English – in the most powerful way about the most basic aspects of Zionism.
His visions have largely been fulfilled, but not all of them.
The Negev – Israel’s south has still not yet been settled in a massive way, but so many other aspects of what he had envisioned have been fulfilled.
The goal of achieving true peace has of course not been fulfilled either, but at least some peace treaties with some of Israel’s neighbors have been signed.
David Ben-Gurion was Israel’s first (and 3rd) Prime Minister and in many ways the builder of so many of Israel’s fundamental institutions – especially the Israel Defense Forces.
