Begin speaks about David Ben-Gurion's tactics for elections to the Sixth Knesset. Ben-Gurion attempts to boost himself through the status of former Chiefs of Staff. Begin argues that these Chiefs of Staff are not so credible. He reflects on Etzel cooperating with the Haganah, and specifically references to Latrun and how Ben-Gurion lied about the lack of efforts of Etzel soldiers. Begin shifts to speak about Ben-Gurion offending former Chiefs of Staff, and concludes that those people can finally feel some of Begin's and for Etzel members' pain.
