Nasser's 9 June speech (1967)

*Broadcast live on Egyptian television

I have taken a decision with which I need your help. I have decided to withdraw totally and for good from any official post or political role, and to return to the ranks of the masses, performing my duty in their midst, like any other citizen.

The forces of imperialism believe that Gamal Abdel-Nasser is their enemy. I want it to be clear to them that it is the whole Arab nation, not just Gamal Abdel-Nasser, that is their enemy.

The forces hostile to the Arab nationalist movement try to portray it as Abdel-Nasser's empire, a falsehood, since the hope of Arab unity began before Abdel-Nasser and will continue after Abdel-Nasser.

In accordance with the text of Article 110 of the interim constitution issued in March 1964, I have assigned my colleague, friend and brother, ZakariaMohieddin, to take over the post of president, and to act in accordance with the stipulations of the relevant article of the constitution.

This is a time for action, not grief ... My whole heart is with you, and let your hearts be with me. May God be with us; hope, light and guidance in our hearts.

Nasser resigns: Crowds in Cairo weep, The Telegraph (London)

Col Nasser's resignation was seen in London last night as improving the chances of a peace settlement between Egypt and Israel. A new leader not bearing direct responsibility for Egypt's humiliation could "do a deal" Nasser could not have contemplated.

The fall of the arch-enemy was also seen in Israel as improving the chances of peace. In Beirut, crowds demonstrated in Col Nasser's support. Moscow Radio reported the resignation, but made no comment.

Value?

Nasser attempted to resign, but massive street demonstrations and a vote of confidence by the National Assembly induced him to remain in office. The Soviet Union immediately began replacing all the destroyed war equipment and installed surface-to-air missiles along the Suez as a cover for Egypt’s artillery emplacements. Nasser had tentatively accepted a U.S. plan leading to peace negotiations with Israel when he died, in 1970, from a heart attack.
