CABLEGRAM ADDRESSED TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL DATED 15 MAY FROM THE MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF EGYPT

The Royal Egyptian Government declare, now that the British Mandate in Palestine has ended, that Egyptian armed forces have started to enter Palestine to establish security and order in place of chaos and disorder which prevailed and which rendered the country at the mercy of Zionist terrorist gangs who persisted in attacking the peaceful Arab inhabitants with arms and equipments amassed by them for that purpose.

Horrible crimes, revolting to the conscience of humanity have been perpetrated by these Zionist gangs. Arab women have been assaulted, pregnant women’s stomachs ripped open, children killed before the very eyes of their mothers and prisoners tortured and then brutally murdered. Those crimes perpetrated in Palestine are proof positive that the Zionists are pursuing the selfsame policy of persecution, torture and murder adopted by the Nazis in Germany and on account of which democratic countries have set up courts to try Nazi war criminals for their crimes against humanity.

The Royal Egyptian Government cannot, in face of these brutal crimes against humanity in a contiguous country and against the Arabs of Palestine who are strongly bound by many ties to the people of neighbouring Arab States, remain inactive. They deem it their bounded duty as a Government of an Arab State and a civilized nation to intervene in Palestine with the object of putting an end to the massacres raging there and upholding law and principles recognized among the United Nations.

The Royal Egyptian Government wish to assert that their armed intervention in Palestine is not directed against Palestine Jews but is against the terrorist Zionist gangs and that this intervention has no other object in view except the restoration of Security and order to Palestine after the British Mandate has ended, and until a just and equitable solution is reached.
