Begin criticizes the government, specifically Ben-Gurion and Moshe Sharet, for being a "government that does not know what to do, nor how to express itself" at a time in which an anti-Israel agenda has been existing in many countries including Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Italy, and the Soviet Union. He attacks Ben Gurion for his threat to the British by uttering the words "destruction of Israel" while he is the "man responsible for their security."
