Begin gives an address to commemorate Abraham (Yair) Stern. He first declares that both Stern and David Raziel "accomplished the turning point of action after a lapse of 1880 years, using Hebrew arms not for local defense but for counter-attack, laying the foundation for all campaigns of Israel in our generation." He spoke about his deep connection with Stern and continues to describe Stern and a poet and a rebel. He explains how both Stern and Raziel were heroes, and concludes that as a result of their heroism, others followed their self-sacrifice mentality.
