Begin expresses his praise towards Jews living in Communist Russia. He says: "without the slightest exaggeration that in our day they are the bravest of all of those fighting for human freedom and dignity." He describes that returning to Judaism, learning Hebrew, and having the dream to return to Zion keep their souls safe from communists. Furthermore, he says that Jewry's moral hegemony belongs to Russian Jewry. Begin mentions the torture inflicted by the Communists and that bravery is infective. He also mentions that fear is infective and reflects on Jewish fear during the Holocaust. He claims that this fear no longer exists. With perseverance, Russia eventually will have to permit Russian Jews to immigrate to Israel.
