Israelis Blast Nasser As ‘brazen Liar’ for Look Magazine Interview

Download PDF for this date

Foreign Ministry officials said today that the interview with President Nasser published in the current issue of Look Magazine proved the Egyptian leader to be a “brazen liar.” They said he tried to accuse King Hussein of Jordan of fabricating the story that American warplanes had helped the Israelis in the June war although there was an authentic tape-record of a Nasser-Hussein telephone conversation in which the Egyptian raised the subject and talked Hussein into accepting the story.


A technical error in the JTA Daily News Bulletin of Friday, March 1 made it appear that the conference of the World Union of General Zionists in Tel Aviv had proposed the abolition of the American Section of the Jewish Agency Executive. The contrary was the fact. The report should have stated that the conference went on record in opposition to the proposed abolition and as strongly favored continuation of the American section.
