Jordan’s King Hussein has called on the world’s Arabs and Moslems to “unite” for battle to recapture Palestine for the Arab world,” it was reported here today from Amman.

King Hussein made the plea in a statement recorded for broadcast to Arab students in the United States. He proposed creation in Amman of a “center where financial support for the battle can be centralized.” He also urged that Arab governments should tax their oil and other revenues for “this most important of all aims.”
