LEHI (Hebrew acronym for Fighters for the Freedom of Israel) was one of the three Jewish underground organizations in Palestine. It was formed following a split in ETZEL (the organization headed then by Begin). One of its leaders during the period described below is than Israeli Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir. Both ETZEL and LEHI were often referred to as fascist by the labor organized third underground, the Haganah. At one time Haganah members would capture members of ETZEL and LEHI and turn them over to the British. And there is certainly no comparison because of the date. 1941. The Nurenberg laws are already in force. The yellow star has been forced upon the Jews of Poland, Holland, and if I am not mistaken also France. Burning synagogues are a daily occurrence. The murder of Jews is no longer asecret. And nevertheless LEHI establishes contacts with the Germans.
