Download PDF for this date

Israel was labeled “a bridgehead for-imperialist forces that back conspiracies in the Arab countries” in a Czechoslovak Arab-language broadcast monitored here today.

The Prague broadcast, heamed to the Arab world, linked Israel with recent U.S. Sixth Fleet activities in the Mediterranean, charging that the maneuver was part of an “imperialist military force” which “surrounds the Middle East region completely.” The broadcast advised the Arab nations to “unite and cooperate” so as “to avert danger.”
