that appeared to many as vindictive and somewhat irresponsible. After
all, they had betrayed fellow Jews for reasons that seemed rather unimpressive after the fact. They had also -- unintentionally, to be sure -- inspired and condoned the crass brutality and even torture that was
perpetrated against some abducted members of the Irgun. In the final
analysis, their relatively benign attitude toward the Mandatory regime
proved unjustified. In fact, the posture taken by the Jewish Agency and
the Haganah ensured that when the Irgun revolt later broke out again
in full force, it would have the support of a large segment of the Yishuv,
despite the denunciations by its official leadership.
