    TRANSCRIPT: "FIRST EGYPT AND THEN ONE ARAB COUNTRY AFTER ANOTHER RUSHED TROOPS AND ARMAMENTS TO OUR FRONTIERS AND CREATED A MOST SEVERE THREAT TO ISRAEL'S SECURITY AND TO THE PEACE OF THE REGION. AT THE SAME TIME, THE SPOKESMEN, FIRST OF EGYPT, AND THEN OF ONE ARAB STATE AFTER THE OTHER, HAVE BEEN GETTING INTO LINE TO HURL THEIR SHAFTS OF INVECTIVE AGAINST ISRAEL AND OF INTIMIDATION AGAINST THE WHOLE WORLD. CLAIMING THAT THEY WOULD NOT INITIATE OFFENSIVE ACTION AGAINST ISRAEL, THEY HAVE LAUNCHED A CAMPAIGN OF UNRESTRAINED POLITICAL WARFARE HERE IN THE SECURITY COUNCIL IN PREPARATION FOR THE TOTAL WAR WHICH THEY OPENLY PROCLAIM TO BE THEIR ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE. AS THE FOREIGN MINISTER OF IRAQ HAS SAID HIMSELF - AND I QUOTE - 'THE CONFLICT WILL BE TOTAL AND UNCOMPROMISING. THERE WILL BE NO RETREAT.'



    "I SAY TO HIM - YOU NEED NOT RETREAT IF YOU DO NOT ADVANCE".
