To understand this excerpt, you guys gotto read my previous passage titled "Warning: We are Israel". To make things a bit more clearer, Israelis and Arabs have signed a 30 days truce and at the expiration of that, both parties are intending to start the war again. King Abdullah gives a try to avoid the war......
From O Jerusalem:
King Abdullah invites Lebanon's Riad Solh, Syria's Jamil Mardam, Egypt's Nokrashy Pasha and Arab League's secretary general to his palace to persuade others to join him in avoiding the war.
Abdullah reminded them that they had all accepted ceasefire because their ammunition was running low. They knew during past four weeks their enemies had received enormous quantities of arms. He suggested other leaders might indicate what new provisions they had received to justify going back to war.
Riad Solh exploded. They had to go back to war. Their people wanted it. Arab pride, honour and dignity demanded it. If they lacked grenades and ammunition, then, he declared, "we shall pick oranges from trees and hurl them at Jews to fight and save our honour"
A silence followed his impassioned words. Abdullah sighed.
"Thank you, Riad Bey," he said, "for your sentiments and such a delicate expression of our national spirit. I must, however, remind you of something you seem to have forgotten. We are now in the month of July. There will be no oranges on the trees of Palestine before September"
