  • Description


    JORDANIAN AMBASSADOR MUHAMMAD EL-FARRA SPEAKS; ISRAELI AMBASSADOR YOSEF TEKOAH SPEAKS (SOF).



    TRANSCRIPT:



    EL-FARRA: "DESPITE ALL THIS, THE ISRAELIS CARRIED OUT A PRE-MEDITATED PLAN, INVADED THE EAST BANK OF JORDAN THIS MORNING, AND RENEWED THEIR COWARDLY ATTACKS AGAINST INNOCENT REFUGEES AND OTHER CITIZENS OF JORDAN. WE ARE, THEREFORE, COMING BEFORE THE COUNCIL, REQUESTING THIS URGENT MEETING, SEEKING AN ADEQUATE AND REALLY EFFECTIVE REMEDY. THE ISRAELI POLICY OF UTTER CONTEMPT TOWARD THE WORLD COMMUNITY CONTINUES TO BE THE ORDER OF THE DAY."



    TEKOAH: "IT WAS WAGED WITH PERSISTENCE AND MALICE. IT EBBED AT TIMES, ONLY TO BE RESUMED AND PUSHED FORWARD AGAIN IN ALL ITS ODIOUS PURPOSEFULNESS. THE PUBLICLY PROCLAIMED AIM REMAINED UNCHANGED - THE TOTAL DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL. THE LAST CONCERTED ATTEMPT BY THE ARAB STATES TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOAL OF RUIN AND DEATH WAS MADE LAST JUNE. 1,500 TANKS, HUNDREDS OF PLANES, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TROOPS WERE MASSED ON OUR BORDERS READY FOR THE KILL. WE CAN STILL HEAR THEIR BERATING IN OUR EARS. THE SLOGAN BROADCASTING THOSE DAYS OVER THE RADIO FROM THE ARAB CAPITALS: 'KILL, KILL, KILL THE JEWS! BUTCHER THE JEWS!"
