Zionist Revisionists Appeal to U.S. for Arms, Defense Pact for Israel

August 8, 1958
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

An appeal to the United States Government to conclude a mutual security pact with Israel and to see to it that Israel is “integrated into the mutual defense network of the free world” was made today by the United Zionists Revisionists of America in a half-page paid advertisement in the New York Times.

Declaring that “Pan-Arabism is new Hitlerism” and warning that “Nasser must be stopped lest-freedom perish.” the Zionist Revisionist appeal says among other things:

“Israel is the main target for the arrows of Nasserism and Communism. Khrushchev and Nasser know well that Israel, a truly democratic and stable country in that area, can not be cowed and cannot be subverted. They are therefore out to destroy Israel, a major obstacle to their conquest of the region.

“The U.S. still has staunch and powerful friends in the Middle East. Let us give them our full support to withstand the onslaught of Khrushchev and Nasser. The security of the U.S. and the survival of western civilization demand hat the U.S. strengthen its ties with Turkey, Lebanon, Iran, Pakistan and Israel.”
