  • Description

    ADDRESSING A MASS MAY DAY RALLY IN CAIRO YESTERDAY (FRIDAY), PRESIDENT NASSER CALLED ON THE UNITED STATES TO DEMAND ISRAEL'S WITHDRAWAL FROM ARAB SOIL. IN HIS SPEECH, WHICH WAS BROADCAST NATION-WIDE, PRESIDENT NASSER SAID THAT EGYPT HAD NOW TAKEN THE INITIATIVE FROM ISRAEL IN SEA AND AIR ACTIONS.

    THE RALLY WAS HELD NEAR THE SPOT WHERE 90 FACTORY WORKERS DIED IN AN ISRAELI AIR ATTACK AT ABOU ZAABAL, NORTH OF CAIRO, IN FEBRUARY.

    HERE ARE SOME EXTRACTS FROM PRESIDENT NASSER'S SPEECH:-
    PRESIDENT NASSER(TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH): TODAY WE FIND THAT OUR ARMED FORCES NOW HAVE WRENCHED THE INITIATIVE FROM THE ENEMY BY EMBARKING ON CARING OPERATIONS IN THE AIR AND ON LAND. AND IN THE SEA ALSO.

    AND I WISH TO SAY THAT IF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WANTS PEACE, IT SHOULD ORDER ISRAEL TO WITHDRAW FROM THE ARAB-OCCUPIED LANDS. THIS IS POSSIBLE FOR THE UNITED STATES...IT IS WITHIN THE ABILITY OF THE UNITED STATES. THE UNITED STATES CAN ORDER THIS BECAUSE ACTUALLY ISRAEL IS LIVING AND DEPENDING ON THE UNITED STATES.....

    BRETHREN, WE ARE LIVING THE GREATEST MOMENTS OF OUR HISTORY, A HISTORY WHICH IS FORGED BY GREAT PEOPLE, AND BY A GREAT NATION WHO HAVE ALWAYS BEEN AMONG THE VANGUARD OF CIVILISATION.
