Fifth Column

“No nation, regardless of past rights and wrongs, could contemplate taking in a fifth-column of such a size. And fifth-column it would be – people nurtured for 20 years (e.g. 1948) in hatred of and totally dedicated to its destruction.  The readmission of the refugees would be the equivalent to the admission to the U.S. of nearly 70,000,000 sworn enemies of the nation.”
