This chapter assumes that the executive committee of Ahdut Ha-Avoda did what was necessary to explain the position to its allied organizations abroad. That debate had only one purpose: under cover of “democracy,” to sully Hebrew and the Hebrews in the eyes of their readers. In the world of the Hebrew worker in Eretz-Israel, the question of languages does not exist. The complete revival of the Jewish people lies in the regeneration of the life of the nation in its land and in its language, and in the renewal of a full, organic life. There is only one practical question of language: how to hasten the complete revival of the language among the entire nation, how to make the treasures of Hebrew culture the property not only of exceptional individuals, but of the entire nation.

Keywords: Ahdut Ha-Avoda; democracy; Hebrews; Eretz-Israel; languages; Jewish; regeneration; culture
