  • Description

    PRESIDENT NASSER WARNED ON SATURDAY THAT ANYONE WHO SUPPORTS ISRAEL WILL FIND HIS INTERESTS BEING AFFECTED IN ARAB LANDS FROM THE PERSIAN GULF TO THE ATLANTIC OCEAN. HE WAS ADDRESSING A MEETING AT CAIRO UNIVERSITY HELD TO MARK THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE UNION BETWEEN EGYPT AND SYRIA DECLARED IN FEBRUARY 1958. THE UNION BROKE UP IN 1961.

    PRESIDENT NASSER SPOKE FOR OVER TWO HOURS AND WAS FREQUENTLY INTERRUPTED BY TUMULTUOUS APPLAUSE. DURING THE SPEECH HE ATTACKED THE UNITED STATES FOR ITS SUPPORT OF ISRAEL, AND ADDED THAT WAR WITH ISRAEL WAS INEVEITABLE. "BUT", HE SAID, "WE DO NOT WANT A REPETITION OF THE TRAGEDY OF 1948."
    THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC LEADER ALSO CRITICISED BRITAIN FOR ITS SUPPORT OF ISRAEL AND ITS MILITARY BASES IN CYPRUS AND LIBYA. "WE HAVE TO DO ALL WE CAN TO LIQUIDATE THESE BASES AND WE HAVE TO SUPPORT THE SOVEREIGN STATE OF CYPRUS AGAINST THE NEW IMPERIALISM."
    PRESIDENT NASSER SAID HE HAD CALLED THE RECENT ARAB SUMMIT CONFERENCE TO SET UP A JOINT ARAB MILITARY COMMAND. THEY NOW HAD A UNIFIED PLAN TO FACE ISRAELI'S "THREATS AND AGGRESSION."
