  • Description

    KING HUSSEIN OF JORDAN HAS CALLED ON THE FEDERATION OF ARAB BROADCASTING STATIONS TO AFFIRM TO THE WORLD THAT THE ARABS ALWAYS SOUGHT PEACE, BUT WOULD NEVER ACCEPT SURRENDER.

    HE WAS SPEAKING IN AMMAN ON SATURDAY (FEBRUARY 28TH) AT THE SECOND CONFERENCE OF THE BROADCASTING FEDERATION, WHICH WAS ESTABLISHED A YEAR AGO.

    IN A SPEECH INAUGURATING THE CONFERENCE, KING HUSSEIN SPOKE ABOUT THE ROLE OF THE BROADCASTING STATIONS DURING THE ARAB - ISRAELI DISPUTE. HE APPEALED TO THE CONFERENCE TO EXPLAIN TO THE WORLD THAT THE ARABS WERE NOT AGAINST THE JEWS AS A PEOPLE OR A RELIGION, BUT "AGAINST ZIONISM WHICH USURPED OUR HOMES, DEPRIVED US OF OUR RIGHTS AND RENDERED OUR PEOPLE HOMELESS."
    THE JORDANIAN MONARCH ACCUSED ISRAEL OF TRYING TO SOW DISCORD AMONG THE ARABS, AND CRITICISED UNNAMED COUNTRIES FOR SUPPORTING ISRAEL AND SUPPLYING IT WITH ARMS. HE ADDED THAT THE FAILURE OF ARAB INFORMATION ABROAD IN THE PAST RESULTED IN CERTAIN UNFAVOURABLE ATTITUDES BEING TAKEN BY SEVERAL INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS.

    KING HUSSEIN TOLD THE CONFERENCE THAT THE ARABS WOULD NEVER APPROVE OF ATTACKS ON CIVILIANS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, "NEITHER ON THE GROUND NOR IN THE AIR."
    THE CONFERENCE WAS HELD AT PARLIAMENT HOUSE IN AMMAN.
