January 4, 1954 Arab Say No to State of Israel

King Saud of Saudi Arabia:

“The Arab nations should sacrifice up to 10 million of their 50 million people, if necessary, to wipe out Israel….Israel to the Arab world is like a cancer to the human body and the only remedy is to uproot it just like a cancer….We don’t have the patience to see Israel remain occupying Palestine for long.”
