In June of 1948, Ben Gurion ordered The Altalena shelled and sunk with loss of life. Had Begin not ordered his people to not fire back a month after the declaration of the state there would have been civil war and Israel would have died at birth. There would have been no place for the 800,000 from the Moslem world and almost equal number from the Soviet Union to go. Thus, it would have been the end of Jews and Judaism on the planet.
