Quotes on transfering Palestinians

“When we occupy the land, we shall bring immediate benefits to the state
that receives us.  We must expropriate gently, the private property on the
estates assigned to us.  For the remainder, we shall try to spirit the
penniless population across the border by procuring employment for it in the
transit counties whilst denying it any employment in our own country.”    -
Theodor Herzl – The Diaries, 2 June 1895

“ The property owners will come over to our side.  Both the process of
expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discretely and
circumspectly.  Let the owners of immovable property believe that they are
cheating us, selling us things for more than they are worth.  But we are not
going to sell them anything back.”  - Theodor Herzl – 2 June 1895

“ You will ruin Herzl’s name if you publish his diaries.  Whoever reads them
is bound to believe he was a fool and a swindler.”  - Max Nordau  to David
Wolffson (2nd president of WZO) cited in Wolffson diary entry 7 November
1906

“ You see another difficulty, Excellency, in the existence of the non-Jewish
population in Palestine.  But who would think of sending them away? It is
their well being, their individual wealth which we increase by bringing our
own.” – Herzl to Youssuf Zia Al-Khalidi, Major of Jerusalem
