308 The Story of the Jewish Defense League

bforces and hears the names of valiant soldiers and mighty bmissiles and aircraft and tanks and Jewish prowess. And bone’s heart swells with pride and joy, but finally, after wait- bing and waiting and waiting, one turns to the rulers of the bState of the Jews and asks: ‘But where is G-d?’
