The Etzel's declaration of revolt against the British in Palestine. World War Two is winding down. The British have turned against the Jews in Palestine, carrying out executions without trial and slandering Jews everywhere. The Etzel is at war with the British Mandatory Authority. The Etzel demands the complete transfer of authority over Eretz Israel from the British to a Provisional Jewish Government, the establishment of a Hebrew army, negotiations for the evacuation of European Jewry to Eretz Israel, the establishment of relations and alliances with the Allied Powers, and respect and equality for Arabs, Christians, and their respective holy sites. Until the British agree to these demands, the Jews of Eretz Israel should refuse to pay taxes and to obey British orders, declare strikes, and demonstrate against the Mandatory Government. The Jews will not be deterred by losses in the struggle until the homeland is freed from British rule.
