Begin addresses the Knesset and argues that Israel should no longer have a Military Government. He provides examples to show that this type of Government is not protecting the country. Begin argues that ending Military rule will not threaten Israel's security. Begin concludes by proposing that "no single right granted to any civilian or military authority be abrogated until the Knesset adopts an all-embracing law to safeguard the security of the State."
