Newspaper: Jewish Herald
subjects:Individuals - David Ben-Gurion. Underground - Etzel
Begin comments in "Herut" about David Ben Gurion's reflection on Abraham (Yair) Stern's qualities. Begin shares that Ben Gurion had labeled Etzel as "murder, robbery, violence." Begin argues that Ben Gurion attacks Jabotinsky's ideology and that he will only express honor towards Etzel and Stern if there is no longer criticism towards his administration. Begin concludes that with God, "there can be no repentance that is not wholehearted, pure and true."
