    I think your first is Misattribution.

    What about these?

    "I believe that Jews and Arabs can live together.
    It’s not an easy thing but I believe we can reach an agreement. I don’t want to pretend about talking to Arabs because I meet Arabs, here and on our farm at home. I would like to be very careful not to pretend but I think I am one of the only ones here at the present time that will have the power and the strength to tell the citizens of Israel what they have to do and to make compromises and Painful compromises, to look into their eyes and say that."

I have repeated that at every opportunity, not for journalists and not for popular consumption, but because I have never believed differently or thought differently, from my childhood on. I am not afraid of Arabs. I feel I can live with them. I believe I understand their problems. I know that we are Both inhabitants of this land, and although the state is Jewish, that does Not mean that Arabs should not be full citizens in every sense of the word."
