In posters placed around Palestine, the IZL stressed that its war was with the British occupiers and no one else. Finally, the leaders of the various factions within the Jewish community in Palestine decided to cooperate. Their combined effort at revolt lasted from November 1945 until September 1946. Although the IZL acted independently, Begin met biweekly with the leaders of the two other Jewish groups to plan strategy and determine the targets for their attacks. World War II had ended, so British military installations were now deemed acceptable targets.

Aliza A 38 Terrorists and Revolutionaries was sending him a message that she was safe, and traveling to Palestine. Begin and a large group of prisoners were transferred to a labor camp in the frozen north of the Soviet Union, where they worked 16-hour days. Their job was to unload iron train cars from boats in the river and then reload them onto flat cars. All of Begin’s possessions, with the exception of the clothes he was wearing, were taken from him. He was ill frequently. By that time, however, the Soviet Union was at war with Germany.

An attempt to make contact with the Germans also did not materialize, and Sadat was arrested. The authorities had no definite evidence linking Sadat to the plot, however, and he was released. It was not the last time that Sadat and his network would attempt to link up with the Germans. By 1942, German forces, under the command of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, were in North Africa, and it was clear that the vast majority of Egyptians secretly hoped for a German invasion of Egypt. In February 1942, the British ordered King Farouk to ask the leader of the Egyptian parliament to form a new government—one that would be more cooperative.
