Facing the Threat of a Renewal of the Persecution from the School for Commanders and Soldiers
subjects:Underground - British Mandate, Etzel, Haganah, Underground Operation. Jewish Heritage - Civil War
The Haganah threatened to again turn Etzel soldiers over to the British and to stop their military actions. The Etzel must therefore prepare for difficult days ahead. Even in the Yishuv leadership these threats against the Etzel are controversial, which will make them difficult to carry out. The Etzel will not stop the war against the British, even under the threats of the Haganah. The Etzel will defend itself, though it does not want a civil war. Etzel soldiers must exercise caution so as not to be attacked.
