He may not have purposefully chosen to paraphrase Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir (1969-1974) famous quote regarding when the Arabs will finally want to stop killing Jews.
When interviewed by Neil Cavuto of the Fox News Channel in regards to Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s vow to torpedo President Trump’s wall on the southern border, Se. John Kennedy (R-LA) plainly stated;
“Speaker Pelosi is advocating for the Democrats, obviously President Trump for the Republicans.
Speaker Pelosi hates Trump more than she likes border security. President Trump likes border security a lot more than he dislikes Miss Pelosi.”
As portrayed in the 1982 TV movie “A Woman Called Golda”, as portrayed by Ingrid Bergman, Golda Meir was quoted as saying peace will be achieved only when “the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”
In actuality, the entire quote was;
“We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”
