Menachem Begin Writing Archive
Throughout his life, Menachem Begin acted with the thought and belief of a national-liberal doctrine in his mind, the core of which was the concentration of the nation, the liberation of the homeland, individual liberty rights, the correction of society, and the supremacy of justice.
For decades, as a member of The Betar, the Irgun commander, the opposition chairman of the Knesset, and the Israeli prime minister he has left countless articles and heartbreaking speeches from heated discussions on the Knesset stage and party, parliamentary and political activities. This database, of the Menachem Begin’s writings, is another means for the Menachem Begin Heritage Center to advance the spread of the national-liberal concept among the citizens of the State of Israel and members of the Jewish nation.

The Daily Quote

All public discussion on Eretz Israel is a good thing.  We are sure of our cause.

We don't like this reprisal system; we wish it would end.  Retaliation is bad; if they would treat us as combatants it would end.

Is not this movement one of the most humanitarian in all history?  It is not only a fight for political independence but for racial survival.  Take your America at the time of the Revolution, or take Ireland during the time of the Irish rebellion, although there had been oppression there was never at any time the risk of the non-survival of the people as a race.  The Americans and the Irish would continue to exist; the Hebrew race has not that assurance. Therefore our fight tends to become more intense, more violent than other historical struggles.  As to our future government, we strongly oppose any totalitarian structure within our state.  Our only aim is to free our country from foreign rule.  We are educating our members in the tenets of individual freedom and social justice; they are being taught the principles of democracy in preparation for their future responsibilities, BUT WE KNOW that the only means of safeguarding Eretz Israel and those still abroad is to give them a state and an army to defend it.
