Who will deny that Dov Gruner was a patriot? Who will call hi:n a traitor or a trouble maker? He had joined with the only organization pledged to contend for the freedom promised the Jewish pej- ple and currently for permission ty the British auhorities to admit at least a minimum of their desperately needful fellow Jews.

'Hoess 1 only complaint of the trial was that he had killed only two million of his fellow beings, rather than thc four millions with which lie was charged. In any case, he has earned the dubious honor of having directly planned and carried out the murder of more innocent people than any one man known to history. The hanging of Dov Qnmtr {only five weeks returned froru service in the Bri.'ish Armj', a veteran of the Libyan, Italian and Northern European campaigns ot World War II), occurred in Acre Prison, twenty-five miles north ol Haifa, and near Jerusalem. WHli Gruner were three 'Jewish youths, one age 19. one 20, the other 21. These three young Jewish patriots 'Were found guilty -by a "British court, of carrying firearms and were sentenced to hang with Dov Gruner. Gruner wa s charged with being a member of the Jewish underground organization, pledged to hold England to her more than 2a-year-old promise of Palestine for the Jews. Yon who arc old enough, will remember these promises to world Jewry, of a country of their own at last, after hundreds of years of persecution and wandering over the face of the earth. At the tfme, you will recollect that it was known n.s the "Zionist Movement.' Due to cerL,.;n prophecies of the Old Testament, this movement took n. romantic hold upon thc minds ol all Christiandom. Blameless or not, the fact remains that alter more than 20 years, England has still not fulfilled her promise of Palestine for the Jews.
