To David Snir greetings,

The riots in Jerusalem arose deep worry in my heart.  I am not convinced this is the way tourists lately cross the Mandelbaum passage.  There is no doubt the feelings of a religious man are to be respected, but religious people must respect the freedom of choice of a fellow man and no coercion is to be exercised for or against religious conduct.  
Your remark concerning a religious population (why settlement?) in Modun – is most welcome as is any Jewish population in this area.  Have you got a group (not necessarily as a Kibbutz) of young people ready to settle down? I suggest you make contact first of all with Elhanan Yishay, who deals with theses matters in the Ministry of Defense, as I hardly leave Sdeh Boker these days. Should any assistance be required which I could offer here – I shall do so gladly.
      
Sincerely
D. Ben-Gurion
