Download PDF for this date

The 13 members of the Arab League told the United Nations Security Council this weekend that Israel’s “aggressive policies and statements” Jeopardized international peace and security. The Arab statement was a reply to Israel’s complaint to the Council last month against the plans adopted by the Arab “summit conference” to liquidate Israel.

Asserting that “Israel was born as a result of colonial aggression,” the Arab League letter charged that “the record of Israel hardly qualifies her to accuse other states of violating the United Nations Charter and of posing a threat to international peace and security,” The Arab statement reaffirmed the determination of the signatory countries to “restore and safeguard the rights of the Palestinian people to their usurped homeland.”
