Begin focuses on why Israel should have atomic power. Even having one bomb is on a different level than other "conventional" weapons. There is a fear that other nations with atomic powers would use "small" atomic bombs in a war, along with the "conventional" weapons. Begin focuses on Israel becoming closer to manufacturing atomic weapons. Begin argues that there is a huge ratio difference between forces of Israel's enemy and Israel. Therefore, the purpose of having atomic power is to make sure enemies won't destroy Israel. He says that Israelis are living in perpetual distress, which is not why Israel was established. Strengthening Israel's security will allow the Government to reclaim the slogans of "aliyah, economic independence, work, purity of actions, settlement, peace."
