President Nasser Says Egypt is Ready to Confront Israel

In his address, Nasser says, “The issue now is not the Gulf of Aqaba, the Straits of Tiran, or the withdrawal of the UNEF, but the rights of the Palestine people. It is the aggression which took place in Palestine in 1948 with the collaboration of Britain and the United States. It is the expulsion of the Arabs from Palestine, the usurpation of their rights, and the plunder of their property. It is the disavowal of all the UN resolutions in favor of the Palestinian people: we must say that our enemy is not only Israel but also the United States and Britain and treat them as such.” (source)
