Begin explains how the film "Exodus" falsely portrays Etzel breaking into the Acre Jail and then provides the true details of the raid and its aftermath. Begin shares that that breaching the walls of the Acre fortress was a turning point in the ongoing struggle for gaining independence. This attack seriously damaged the British prestige and proves this by sharing what different news sources said in addition to Britain's High Commissioner's response to this Etzel operation. Begin reiterates that breaking into the Acre jail was a key operation in liberating the nation. He concludes by arguing that oppression always passes, and freedom is eternal.
