Does anyone have any sources for confirmation of the following quote?:

“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… Even if we are beaten now in Palestine, we will never submit. We will never accept the Jewish state... But for politics, the Egyptian army alone, or volunteers of the Muslim Brotherhood, could have destroyed the Jews.” - Hassan al-Banna, Muslim Brotherhood founder (New York Times, August 2, 1948)

Found it on the New York Times. The article preview is here:
