Nasser Insists on ‘liquidation’ of Israel; Voices Pledge at Congress

Download PDF for this date

Calling Israel “the most dangerous pocket of imperialist resistance against the struggle of our people,” Egypt’s President Gamal Abdel Nasser last night called again for the elimination of Israel.

Presenting his new “national charter of Socialist principles” to the opening session of the Congress of Popular Forces, at which Nasser has brought together handpicked representatives of “peasants and workers,” the Egyptian dictator reiterated his old policy of the “need” for Israel’s destruction. Egypt, he said, would “insist on the liquidation of Israeli aggression on part of the Palestine land.”
