Begin speaks of his concerns about Henry Kissinger's "Jordanian-Israeli disengagement of forces" plan. In this plan, Israel abandons land they liberated in the Six-Day War for interim agreements, not peace agreements. Begin speaks about Hussein's actions against Israel in both the War of Independence and the Six-Day War. Begin argues that with interim agreements, Arab countries are just waiting for the right moment to attack Israel, again. Begin shifts to further criticize Kissinger's plan. Begin explains that Israel will not be secure with a UN force located at the 1967 border lines. He concludes that it is important to have "positive national stubbornness in the face of pressures and threats."
