“Only through a united effort by the State … by a people ready for
a great voluntary effort, by a youth bold in spirit and inspired by creative heroism, by scientists liberated by the bonds of conventional
thought and capable of probing deep into the special problems of this country … we can succeed in carrying out the great and fateful task
of developing the South and the Negev.”
