    President Nasser told the cheering and enthusiastic gathering that "all the Arabs want a decisive battle with Israel". "It would" he said, "be final battle."
    He went on: "Moshe Dayan threatens to invade Sinai: let him come. I announce from here on behalf of the United Arab Republic people that this time we will exterminate Israel."
