  • Description

    ABOUT 10,000 PEOPLE CHANTING 'WE WANT TO FIGHT' AND 'NEXT STOP TEL AVIV' HEARD PALESTINE LIBERATION FRONT CHAIRMAN AHMED SHUKEIRY DECLARE IN CAIRO LAST NIGHT (MONDAY THAT BATTLE WITH ISRAEL WAS IMMINENT. FILM OF ROUTINE MILITARY TRAINING IN A CAIRO SCHOOL INDICATES THAT THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC CONSIDERS THE ABILITY TO FIGHT AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE NORMAL TIME-TABLE.

    THE MASS RALLY, HELD IN THE CENTRE OF CAIRO, WAS ORGANISED BY THE U.A.R.'S ONLY OFFICIAL POLITICAL ORGANISATION, THE ARAB SOCIALIST UNION. CROWDS OF PEOPLE SQUATTED ON THE GROUND TO LISTEN TO MR SHUKEIRY, DRESSED IN A MILITARY UNIFORM. HE TOLD THE CROWD: 'WE ARE HEADING INTO THE BATTLE OF LIBERATION WITH UNSHAKEN DETERMINATION.'
    UNSHAKEN DETERMINATION TOO WAS EXHIBITED BY THE PUPILS AT THE TAALAT HARB SCHOOL IN CAIRO, WHO WERE YESTERDAY CONTINUING WITH THEIR ROUTINE MILITARY TRAINING. THIS DISCIPLINE IS NOW PART OF THE SCHOOL CURRICULUM IN MANY OF THE LARGEST TOWNS OF THE U.A.R.

    (IN ISRAEL, FOREIGN MINISTER ABBA EBAN WARNED TO DAY THAT HIS COUNTRY WAS STILL READY FOR MILITARY ACTION AND WILL MAKE UNLIMITED SACRIFICES TO OPEN THE BLOCKADED GULF OF AQABA. BUT HE STRESSED THAT ISRAEL WAS WILLING TO INVEST A LITTLE TIME' TO SEE IF THE MATTER COULD BE SOLVED BY INTERNATIONAL ACTION.)
