Download PDF for this date

King Hassan II has sent a message to the 13-nation Arab “summit conference” in Alexandria, pledging Morocco to “any sacrifice needed” for the “liberation of Palestine. “

He declared in his message that bringing back “justice” to the “legitimate population” of Palestine was the most important problem facing the “Arab nation. ” He accused “imperialists” and “Zionists” of being the cause of the “awful iniquity” of which the Palestinian Arab refugees had been “the object” for “16 years. ” He also invited the Arab countries meeting in Alexandria to fight the “Zionist penetration” in Africa.
