"The State of Israel has been Established, the Kingdom of Israel will be Established on the Entire Homeland " – Issue of the "Herut" Journal from the First Day of Israel's Independence, 15.5.1938 – With Menachem Begin's "Declaration of Independence"
Special issue of the "Herut" journal, with Menachem Begin's speech for the establishment of the State of Israel (the "Reddening Dawn" speech). [Tel-Aviv?], 15.5.1948.
On Saturday night, 6 Iyar (May 15) 1948, the evening of the first day of Israel's independence, Menachem Begin delivered a speech on the Irgun's underground radio station, "Kol Tzion HaLochemet" ("Voice of Fighting Zion"). In this speech, which constitutes a kind of alternative "Declaration of Independence" instead of the one delivered by Ben-Gurion, Begin addresses the dismantling of the paramilitary groups, the need for a strong and well-trained army, the essential foreign policy with the U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R., repatriation of Jews, and more. In fact, in this speech he lay down the ideological foundations of the party he was about to form – the Herut Movement.
This is a special issue of the journal of the Irgun – "Herut" (numbered 97), that was printed several hours after the speech, featuring it in full (the headline of the issue "Announcement of the Chief Commander of the Irgun"). Printed alongside the name of the journal - the announcement of the Irgun about the establishment of the state - "The State of Israel has been Established, the Kingdom of Israel will be Established on the Entire Homeland".
[1] f. approx. 51X35 cm. Good condition. Stains and minor blemishes. Closed tears to

Provenance: The Rimon Family Collection.
