Kol TSion HaLokhemet (or Kol Zion Halohemet Hebrew: קול ציון הלוחמת, voice of fighting zion) was the underground radio station of the Irgun. It was operated from 1939 and it was probably the first underground radio station in the world.

Voice for Begin

Irgun leader, Menachem Begin, who eluded capture during the struggle with the British during the period of the British Mandate of Palestine, used Kol Zion at many junctures to communicate with the Jews of Palestine. For example he declared:

[...] Not only were Jews injured and thousands of pounds worth of damage done to Jewish property in Jerusalemmarker. Our national pride was injured as well. Once again we became 'protected Jews' as British troops pretended to defend us... [191221]
