Ah, the 60's

Back in 1969, the late Golda Meir (who might now be known as a "right-wing extremist") was interviewed on Meet the Press. She was asked why she was allowing Jews to move back to areas, then recently acquired by Israel as a result of the Six-Day War, from which they had been expelled by the Arabs in 1948. Golda looked the interviewer straight in the eyes and said,

"Explain to me, sir, why the Jews should not be allowed to live anywhere they want!"
