TFJ Season 2 Episode 29 How was Israel to defend herself against five attacking Arab countries?
The British Mandatory government enforced a ban not only on Jews entering the country, but also on Jews acquiring weapons or manufacturing arms under the penalty of death. Where was Israel to acquire weapons to defend herself? There were risky efforts to smuggle in weaponry and clandestine production in Israel.

But Jewish innovation which was the hallmark of the War of Independence met this challenge as well.
