Answer: David Ben-Gurion

From the Wikipedia: "He was born as David Grün (Green) in Plonsk, Poland - then part of the Russian Empire. His father was a leader in the Hovevei Zion organization. Shocked by the pogroms and anti-Semitism in Eastern Europe, he became an ardent Zionist and moved to Palestine in 1906. He led Israel during its War of Independence and became Prime Minister on February 25, 1949, remaining in that post until 1963, except for a period between 1953 and 1955."
