Download PDF for this date

Menachem Beigin, former Irgun Zvai Leumi commander in Israel, whose return to Tel Aviv last night by air was delayed because of inclement weather, expressed the hope in a farewell statement that Israel will be given all possible aid by the United States. He emphasized that his visit to this country convinced him that “the truth of our war of liberation has been deeply inscribed in the hearts of the American people, Jews and non-Jews alike.”
