    Background: ALL WAS QUIET, AND LIFE WENT ON AS NORMAL IN JERUSALEM TODAY FOLLOWING THE MAY DAY SPEECH BY PRESIDENT NASSER TO A MASSED RALLY IN CAIRO YESTERDAY (SATURDAY), WHICH HE SAID THE ARABS WOULD IN FUTURE BE TAKING THE MILITARY INITIATIVE IN THE MIDDLE EAST CONFLICT.

    PRESIDENT NASSER'S ANNOUNCEMENTS MAKE LITTLE DIFFERENCES TO THE ISRAELIS, WHO HAVE BEEN LIVING IN A STATE OF WAR FOR NEARLY THREE YEARS SINCE THE SIX-DAY CONFLICT. BLOOD BANKS AND HOSPITALS ARE CONSTANTLY ON THE ALERT FOR ACTION, AND AMBULANCES ARE ALWAYS READY FOR EMERGENCIES.

    EVERY NEW HOUSE IN ISRAEL MUST HAVE AN AIR-RAID SHELTER, AND ISRAELIS GO ABOUT THEIR WORK PREPARED FOR IMMEDIATE ACTION SHOULD THE AIR-RAID SIRENS SOUND.

    IN TEL AVIV, ISRAEL'S FOREIGN MINISTER ABBA EBAN HAS SAID THAT PRESIDENT NASSER WANTED TO FRIGHTEN THE WORLD INTO HOLDING BACK SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL. HE SAID THAT THE PRESIDENT STILL WANTED TO CARRY OUT HIS ORIGINAL PLAN OF 1967 TO EXTERMINATE ISRAEL, BUT NOW HAD SOVIET AID TO HELP HIS AMBITION.

    PRESIDENT NASSER WAS HIDING ISRAEL'S DESIRE FOR A NEGOTIATED PEACE WITH THE EGYPTIAN PEOPLE, SAID MR. EBAN. HIS CHARGES THAT ISRAEL WANTED TO CONQUER LANDS AS FAR FLUNG AS SAUDI ARABIA AND KUWAIT WERE ABSURD, AND THAT ISRAEL WOULD REMAIN ON HER PRESENT BORDERS UNIT A TRUE PEACE WAS NEGOTIATED.
