Download PDF for this date

The Moroccan Government Istiqlal (Freedom) party demanded today that all Arab countries proclaim war against Israel, and to “liberate Palestine,” according to a dispatch from Casablanca. The party said it regarded war against Israel as “a national religious duty.” Morocco, a Moslem country and a member of the Arab League, had already cut off postal ties with Israel.
