Political Parties - Achdut Ha'avoda, Herut, Mapai, Mapam. Security - Army. Jewish Heritage - causeless hate. Individuals - David Ben-Gurion, Ze'ev Jabotinsky. Underground - Etzel
Begin replies to an anonymous letter written by students, followers of Ben-Gurion and Mapai. He states that there must be no hatred between Jews and describes the Jewish philosophy that although a party, person, or idea may be popular does not mean it is correct and vice versa. He gives the example of Jabotinsky and his agenda for a Jewish state and army. Begin states that Mapai is declining as a ruling party and that the nation is beginning to recognize the right of Herut.
