  • Description

    PRESIDENT NASSER ON SATURDAY APRIL 11 TOLD THE NEWLY FORMED GENERAL COMMITTEE FOR PREPARING THE PEOPLE FOR BATTLE THAT THERE WAS NO ALTERNATIVE TO THE BATTLE WITH ISRAEL AND THAT THE CONFLICT WOULD BE A LONG AND FIERCE ONE.

    IN HIS ADDRESS TO THE 71-MEMBER COMMITTEE, THE EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT SAID THAT IS HAD COME INTO BEING AT A PARTICULARLY OPPORTUNE MOMENT AS THE BATTLE WITH ISRAEL HAD NOT YET REACHED ITS PEAK. PRESIDENT NASSER SAID THE CEASE-FIRE WITH ISRAEL "HAD COMPLETELY FOUNDERED." IN FACT, HE SAID, IT HAD NEVER EXISTED BECAUSE IT HAD NEVER BEEN ACCEPTED BY THE ENEMY.

    PRESIDENT NASSER'S SPEECH WAS MARKED ALSO BY A STRONG ATTACK ON THE UNITED STATES, PARTICULARLY NOTED AS IT CAME JUST AFTER THE CAIRO ARRIVAL OF THE US ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF STATE, MR. JOSESH SISCO. HE ATTACKED THE UNITED STATES FOR ITS POLITICAL AND MILITARY AID TO ISRAEL AND ALSO BLAMED AMERICA FOR THE UN FAILURE TO SECURE THE WITHDRAWAL OF ISRAELI TROOPS FROM ARAB TERRITORY OCCUPIED AFTER THE JUNE 1967 WAR.

    THE WAR WAS NOT ONLY AGAINST ISRAEL AND THE WORLD ZIONIST MOVEMENT, PRESIDENT NASSER SAID. IT WAS THE IMPERIALIST POWERS WHICH WERE SUPPORTING THE ISRAELIS.
