Begin writes about how the Anglo-American security plan threatens Israel's future. He first mentions the rivalry between England and America regarding power in the Middle East. Begin explains that they have an agreed plan for Israel. Begin shifts to talk about Moshe Sharett's determination to make peace with Israel's enemies. Sharett involved the British and Americans, which led to the joint Anglo-American security plan. Begin continues to explain and argue against the security plan. Then Begin speaks about threats from America to refuse Israel aid, the "silver pistol." He concludes with speaking about the recent loss of three youth at Mevo'ot Betar and Mevo'ot Betar's song, "'we shall not move from here.'" His final argument is that that song is an old song and the new song is "'We shall move from here –forward; we shall never retreat.'"
