Begin presents the international political zig-zag occurring between U.S., France, Britain, and Russia. Begin explains his confusion towards the different world powers unanimously agreeing that Israel should return land it gained from Egypt. He shares the irony of the U.S. policy being twofold—both anti-communism and anti-colonialism. Ultimately, the U.S. actions assist Russia. Because of the strong relationship between Russia and Egypt, the U.S. helped Nasser become a conqueror. Begin explains that Russia's power will continue to grow and concludes that Israel must be courageous.
