Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE UTHBRIDGE KERAID Moy 16, 1973 ISRAEL: A Flame Rekindled IX: A Return to War In found itself in who with Israel, and Prepare yourselves, O Israel, for the day of your destruction is near. We want revenge end our revenge is Israel's death. Abdel Nasser Perhaps the passage of time between the events of 1956 and today is too short to "afford dispas- sionate historical analysis. Most of the accounts, depending on the source, are less than objective. Perhaps the most realistic version of events is included in a report prepared by the American Friends Sen-ice Committee. It reads, in part: "When President Nasser, after a series of dip- lomatic rebuffs, nationalized the Suez Canal in 1956 and eliminated British and French manage- ment, he precipitated a fresh international crisis. At this point, the Israelis saw an opportunity to settle accumulated scores with Egypt, to halt re- curring Woody border attacks, and perhaps_to move the situation away from non-recognition tow ard some'kind of peace. A debate which raged inside the Israeli cabinet for many months was resolved in favor of the hard-line faction which had pressed for full-scale war against the Egyp- tians. "Great Britain and France supported this course, and on October the three powers signed a secret treaty at Sevres which gave the green light for an Israeli attack. On October 29, Israeli tanks invaded the Sinai, supported by French planes. In a swift and decisive victory they swept all before them, to the Suez Canal and to the southern tip of Sinai at Shann el Sheikh. Great Britain and France joined in, somewhat ignominiously. with a attack of their own on the Canal area. However, the com- bination of United Nations condemnation, United States opposition, and Soviet threats of atomic missile intervention forced the French and the British to back out. "The Israelis were not easily dislodged, how- ever. They were reluctant to abandon their hold on the Sinai, if the Egyptians still refused to agree to recognition and a formal peace. Most particularly, they did not want to give up their control of the entrance to the Strait of Tiran, and allow the Egyptians to return to Sharm el Sheikh with the likelihood of a renewal of harassment ot Israeli shipping through the Gulf of Aqaba. In the end, a kind of backstairs deal, with the United States as mediator, produced Israeli with- drawal from the whole of Sinai in exchange for American assurance that Egypt -would not inter- fere with shipping through the Strait. As part of these arrangements, a United Nations Emergency Force was established on the Israeli-Egyptian border and at Sharm el Sheikh on the Strait of Tiran. These forces were stationed only on the Egyptian side of the border since the Israeli gov- ernment refused to admit them to Israeli terri- tory." Once again, it amply demonstrated that events in a small area of the globe, the Middle East, have critical international implications. No episode here, regardless of its relative size, is without world-wide so it has always been in the land between the River of Egypt and the Euphrates. The 1956 war ended in stalemate; nothing was resolved; nothing was won, or from the lives. A EXT: And the Desert Shall Bloom mi wmm III SIMPSONS DccLFS Contemporary 2-pcs. In Tweed popular design.
