314 The Story of the Jewish Defense League

bof the state and its continued survival and victory over its benemies, do not lie in the foolish realpolitik with which the bspiritual assimilationists of our government play. ‘Those bcome with chariots and these with horses, but we will re- bmember the name of the L-rd, our G-d.’ Are there any bamong us who are so blind as to fail to see the mighty hand bof G-d in the creation and sustenance of the state?
