""When you shot at us [on the Altalena], I gave the order, `No!' Today I am giving the order, `Yes!' This will be a war for life or death. They say that we are pretending fury, but thousands of people standing here in the driving rain are living testimony that the fury of the people broke out spontaneously..Every German is a killer. Every German is a Nazi" - M. Begin in a speech against reparations (1952) Begin was threatening civil war. If you can kill Jews, why not kill a German, especially since he "was" also a Nazi. Begin never had compassion for "goyim". He terrorized Arabs, even though the rest of the Yishuv abhored such tactics. Begin's counterpart in the Stern gang approved the assassination of UN peace representative Count Polke Bernadott, because he was to offer a peace plan the Sternists did not approve of. Not far from the Adenaur plot.
