by Abbas Eid

How a nascent radio station, led by legendary broadcaster Ahmed Said, could influence Arab countries during the 1950s and 1960s, and help them in their struggle to liberate from British and French colonialism.
Egypt has launched the Voice of the Arabs from Cairo, the pulsing heart of Arabism, as a war on the colonialists, announcing to the whole world that the Arabs have come to recognize themselves and their strengths as one nation, not separated by borders or torn by whims. No colonialism conspiracy would stand between them and freedom. Your free voice, the Voice of the Arabs, is only one year old, and yet it is embraced by all Arabs. It started out from Arab Egypt, confident of its Arabism. Arabism is a supreme slogan all Arabs believe in, because it comes from the Arabs, by the Arabs and for the Arabs. It is only natural, while the Voice of the Arabs seeks to unite the free Arabs, to be overcome by the forces of the treacherous colonialists who want to suffocate it. However, the Voice of the Arabs remained, with God’s help, a free glorious voice, because it is the voice of Arab rights. -Gamal Abdel Nasser (One year after the launch of the Voice of the Arabs)
