en COHEN secret diary of of Leven ben himself the Jewish Publishing House, Jerusalem) We cannot accept the British turning their backs to escapees from Nazi terror. The Haganah has to protect the settlements from the Arabs. It is imperative that we mobilize. But I meant to mobilize together. Why did the Irgun Zeva'i Le'umi split from the Haganah? You don't say? They're trying to Convince the British to leave the country? Who does that IZL head, Menachem Begin, think he is anyway? He's acting like a prime minister. And another underground organization is claiming they have killed the British minister of state, Lord Moyne, because he was the one responsible for refusing European Jews refuge here. World War II has come to an end. It's an election year and the British Labor Party has Won out. We need more Jews in Palestine, even if they are brought in illegally.

CELEBRATING ISRAEL'S 32nd ANNIVERSARY and the ISRAELI-EGYPTIAN PEACE TREATY ROLLINS COLLEGE (in front of the library) Sunday, May 4, 1980 12 noon- 5 pm (to be held in field house in case of inclement weather.) who? Menachem Begin Sends Word On the Occasion D00r,lsJ'ael's 32nd Fr0rn Jerusalem our eternal and indivisible capital, I send to you all heartfelt greetings on the occasion of the 32nd anniversary of the proclamation of Israel's independence in the land of our forefathers. After the most terrible disaster which befell our people in Europe and the heroic fight in Eretz Israel for national self liberation we lived to see the day, one of the greatest in the annals of our ancient people, when we became a nation amongst nations, free and independent in our own country. Since then we have brought millions of the Jewish people from four corners of the world. We have had to sustain our independence in 5 wars, in which 14,000 of our best men gave their lives and more than 30,000 were wounded. But we did protect and preserve our independence. We set our country free, we reunited Jerusalem, we built up the land and have turned it into green pastures. This year we celebrate the first anniversary of the signing of the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel. No doubt this is a turning point in the annals of the two countries and the Middle East. After 31 years of a state of war and five actual wars waged on the battlefield with great sacrifice, sorrow and bereavement, we, Egypt and Israel, declared that we shall never again raise arms against each other and the state of war is terminated. HERITAGE, Florida Jewish News, April 18. 1960, Page 7 II I !ii!iiii!i! In the turmoil that surrounds us in theMiddle East and its periphery, this is the only peaceful corner from the day we normalized our relations with our southern neighbour. Since then we signed many agreements which stem from the peace treaty. We still have problems, indeed we hope to solve them. We will be faithful to all the terms and all the parts of the Camp David Agreement. There may be difficulties ahead but we started this great new chapter in our life, peace. We live by the faith that in generations to come, our people will live in this land, together with their neighbours in equality, in human dignity, in freedom, in independence and in real security. Mazel toy and hag sameach to all of you.
