As Prime Minister, he signs an angry letter to a member of the Knesset concerning a new, "apolitical settlement" at Lachich.
TLS: "D. Ben-Gurion" as Prime Minister in Hebrew, 1 page, 6x7¾. Jerusalem, 1956 February 1. To Knesset Member Meir Ya'ari, Kibbutz Merhavia (Israel). In full: "Again you have found it necessary to attack government policies in your newspaper 'Al Hamishmar' with respect to the apolitical settlement at Lachish. It is certainly beyond my understanding, what is the 'great tragedy' that new immigrants from twenty different countries (some of whom never had any political education), will become farmers and their own bosses in our own free country. Your attacks are without any responsibility and are to be condemned." BEN-GURION was Israel's first Prime Minister, serving from 1948-1953 and 1955-1963. MEIR YA'ARI was the leader of the Zionist Young Guard in Palestine before Israeli independence in 1948 and a member of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, since independence. He was also the leader of the Mapam political party, a leftist pro-Marxist essentially Kibbutz movement, publishers of "Al Hamishmar", a daily Israeli newspaper. Lachish, about 25 miles south of Jerusalem, is the location of some of Israel's most important archaeological discoveries. Folds, vertical fold touches paraph of signature. Lightly soiled at blank areas. 2 file holes at blank right margin. Overall, fine condition.
