A secret meeting between representatives of UNSCOP and Begin in August, 1947. They discuss what the Irgun is, its political philosophy, and its responses to various proposed compromises. Begin is adamant that the Jews have the right to control all the land and must do so. The Jewish refugees must be repatriated in Palestine. The British are the problem, both in direct illegal actions like military courts and in stirring up Arab opinion against the Jews.
