subjects:States - Britain/England. Underground - British Mandate, Etzel, Underground Operation. Education - Youth
The Etzel attacked the center of British rule in Palestine, the King David Hotel. When the explosives were planted several phone warnings were sent to the hotel and other locations, giving more than twenty minutes to evacuate. Unfortunately no evacuation occurred. Therefore the responsibility for the loss of life rests with the British who refused to evacuate. The Etzel mourns the Jewish casualties. The Etzel calls on all Jewish youth to rise up against the oppressive British rule.
