Begin provides examples of actions done by David Ben Gurion and Moshe Sharett that could lead to countries having difficulty trusting and respecting Israel. Begin focuses on Sharett's address in Eilat where Sharett discusses the breach in relations between Israel and Russia. Sharett criticizes Soviet Russia for its tactical reasons for supporting Israel, and then mentions that Israel lost nothing from the breach. Begin concludes that the specific consequence of Sharett's statements is that the USA now must show some support to the Arabs. This could lead to Israel receiving pressure to agree to allowing the return of 100,000 Arabs, major reparations, and shifting the borders.
