* 1948 * [Arab League and Ahmad Shukairy]

Ramparts - Volume 6, Issues 6-12 (Noah's Ark), 1968, p. 23

When you stand across the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem road from Latrun, which was the site of a major Arab-Israel battle in 1948, and you see Latrun (now a Trappist Monastery) up on a hill overlooking the road, you realize that only several hundred yards separated Israeli settlements from Jordanian troops. It then becomes clear what an Israeli, especially if he lives on the border, means when he says that his existence, his life, depended on whether or not he won the war in June, and on whether Israel can now secure more viable borders. The security problem and the border situation and the question of death and life in Israel are inseparable.

For those of us who live in a country of vast frontiers, it is an abstraction to talk about "territorial acquisition." For the Israelis, maintaining their hold on Latrun and the old road between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem is vital. They cannot return to the border situation they had before.

As to Arab intentions, Israelis will readily tell you that Azzam Pasha, then secretary general of the Arab League, stated the Arab war aims on May 15, 1948 (as reported by the BBC that day), quite clearly: "This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades." They will remind you that Ahmed Shukairy, who now claims to be leading a "war of national liberation," and who directs the so-called Palestine Liberation Organization and talks so glibly of anti-imperialism, is a reactionary landlord who first headed the Syrian delegation and then the Saudi Arabian delegation to the U.N. before suddenly donning his new anti-imperialist clothes. But his aims have not changed since he was a reprepsentative of the Palestine Arab High Committee before the U.N. and stated (as recorded in the Official Records of the General Assembly, May 15, 1948, p. 650): "The war aims of the Arabs were the elimination of the Jewish State." The position of the Arab regimes was stated again, after the six-day war, by General Abdul Rahman Arif of Iraq: "The existence of Israel," he said on June 28,1967, "is in itself an aggression and must therefore be repulsed, and there must be a return to a normal situation."

The Case for Israel - Page 94
The first Arab communiqué predicted victory within a week. Had any doubts existed abroad as to the Arabs' intentions, they were quickly dispelled by Azzam Pasha, then secretary general of the Arab League. At a press conference in Cairo on the day that the invasion of Israel began, he said, "This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades.

His apocalyptic prognosis was confirmed by Ahmed Shukairy, then spokesman for Mufti Husseini's Palestine Arab High Committee.
Shukairy said, the Arabs' war aims were, simply, "the elimination of the Jewish State."
It would be difficult to imagine a clearer statement of Arab war aims in the Middle East.

Arab policy as enunciated by Azzam and Shukairy added up to Judenrein - a Middle East "free of Jews" - precisely what Hitler had hoped to achieve , and very nearly succeeded in achieving , in Europe . The Arabs had not disclaimed, indeed, they had flaunted, their responsibility for the outbreak of hostilities in 1947 " for the

AIM TO OUST JEWS PLEDGED BY SHEIKH; Head of Moslem Brotherhood Says U.S., British 'Politics' Has Hurt Palestine Solution

Special to THE NEW YORK TIMES.By Dana Adams Schmidt.
Aug. 2, 1948

CAIRO, Egypt, Aug. 1 -- Sheikh Hassan el-Bana, head of the Moslem Brotherhood, largest of the extremist Arab nationalist organizations, declared in an interview today:

"If the Jewish state becomes a fact, and this is realized by the Arab peoples, they will drive the Jews who live in their midst into the sea."

* 1967 * [Egpyt's Nasser, Iraq's Aref, "Palestine" Ahmad Shukairy]

Military Law Review - Volumes 151-154 - Pages 247-248.

Arab intentions were clear. On May 27, President Nasser of Egypt made a public statement proclaiming: Our basic objective will be the destruction of Israel.
President Aref of Iraq , predecessor to the current Iraqi president, Saddam Hussein , proclaimed a similar intention: The existence of Israel is an error which must be rectified. This is our opportunity to wipe out the ignominy which has been with us since 1948. Our goal is clear — to wipe Israel off the map.
And finally, the Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Ahmed Shukairy, predecessor of the current Chairman, Yasser Arafat, stated on June 1 as follows:
This is a fight for the homeland - it is either us or the Israelis. There is no middle road. The Jews of Palestine will have to leave. We will facilitate their departure to their former homes. Any of the old Palestine Jewish population who survive may stay, but it is my impression that none of them will survive.

The New Middle East, Issues 16-39, New Middle East 1970, p. 4:

Mr Shukairy claims that when in his days of glory he publicly advocated the liquidation of Israel and "sweeping of the Jews into the sea," he reflected the accepted official Arab outlook, an outlook that was changed only by the outcome of the war of 1967.
Mr Shukairy is indignant that such extremism should be fathered on him alone ...

by GS Gordon · 2008
On October 25, 2005, at an anti-Zionism conference in Tehran, Iran's President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, called for Israel to "be wiped off the face of the map" -- the first in a series of incendiary speeches arguably advocating liquidation of the Jewish state. Certain commentators contend that these statements constitute direct and public incitement to commit genocide.
