Excerpt from Episode 2 of the TV series This Week 25 Years Ago, created by the Israel Film Service, as part of the 25th-anniversary celebrations of the establishment of the State of Israel. David Ben-Gurion, in an interview conducted for the series, speaks about the Partition Plan and the challenges it presents to both Arabs and Jews. Despite the general consensus regarding the plan, the Yishuv leadership understands that the idea of an international Jerusalem will lead to war, and they begin to prepare for it.
