Political Parties - Achdut Ha'avoda, Gahal, Mapai, Mapam. Individuals - Chaim Weizmann, Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan, Moshe Sharett. States - Egypt.

Begin speaks about the contradictory opinions of leaders within the Labor Party regarding the land liberated in the Six-Day War. He first speaks about Moshe Dayan's views, which are close to those of Gahal. Like Begin, Dayan believes that the liberated land should not be partitioned. Begin shifts to question how Dayan's colleagues could consider partitioning the Homeland, which goes against the essence of Zionism. Begin then counters the argument that in 25 years, the Homeland will not have a Jewish majority. To conclude, Begin reiterates that the beliefs of the members of the "united" Labor Party are different and therefore, this party is deceiving the public.
