May 29, 1967 The Six-Day War

Gamal Abdul Nasser, Egypt’s President, in speech before the Egyptian National Assembly, May 29, 1967:

“[I]f we were able to restore conditions to what they were before 1956 God will surely help and urge us to restore the situation to what it was before 1948.”

“The issue is not the question of Aqaba, the Straits of Tiran or the United Nations Emergency Force. The issue is the aggression against Palestine that took place in 1948.”
