Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - December 7, 1960, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Doily Newspaper Edittd for MASON CITY GLOBE The newspaper that makes all North I o wans HOME EDITION VOL Preii and United Prtit International Full Wires MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 7 1960 neighbors4 7c a Copy Paper of Four SectlonjMlecUoa II feelings in Egypt Even British are welcome By JOHN K CODLEY New York Herald Tribune News Service Suez crisis anc its aftermath still color much of Egyptian life and thought four years after the event What are you American English or German nearly any taxi driver waiter or offi cial will ask you spontaneously opening a friendly arid casual conversation If the answer should be Eng lish or French the reaction is most likely to be a smile and something like Welcome It is good to see you people in Egypt again What happened in 1956 was bad But now we will have no more trouble Whatever else the regime of President Gamal Abdel Nasser has done or left undone it is still successfully utilizing Egypts victory in the Suez cri sis to strengthen her prestige abroad while seemingly eradi cating nearly all traces of the xenophobia and extreme1 nation alism which temporarily dur ing the period of heavy Western influence here reigned at home THE AVERAGE Egyptian is a demonstrative emotional man or woman who will effusively and with great sincerity shake your hand in friendship and in the next hour perhaps attend a mass rally where eitHer West erners or Communists are de nounced or where King Hus sein of Jordon the present bete noire of the regime is branded a traitor to Arabism or paid hireling of the Zionists and the British To the Egyptian the most im portant thing is that the emo tional current is kept strong in either case The Egyptian like all Arabs lives and does business on a persontoperson basis If you are liked if you are sympathe tic to an Egyptian there is nothing he will not do or at least attempt for you PEOPLE MEAN everything Doctrines and abstract ions mean much less The disem barkation at Alexandria recent ly of 470 British tourists the first such party since Suez caused far more of a stir in Cai ro than did rumors arising the recent NasserMac millan conversations in New York that full diplomatic rela tions would soon be restored be tween Britian and the United Arab Republic People could see the tourists talk to them and sell them things The diplomatic relations were a lofty distant abstrac lion Students and intellectu a 1 s here seen somewhat relieved that Col Nassers monolithic national union created last year as sort of a superparty to cut away barriers of class and politics is eliminating the swarm of political parties and groupings rife since the days of British and French control in Egypt and her northern part ner Syria which in February 1958 became the northern re gion of the UAR This is not out of any basic dislike or distrust of Western political democracy Col Nas sers philosophy of the revolu tion ha always aimed and still does aim at finding the best in the Western parliamentary sys tem and using it BUT EGYPT is a land where nearly 80 per cent of the popula tion of 25 million still are fella hin or peasants who depend for their livelihood on the lifegiv ing strips of fertile earth that border the Nile In Egypt ever since Pharaonic times as in the rest of the world the peasant has always mistrusted the poli tician While a perfume merchant or a travel agent will tell you that the expulsion of the British French and Jewish communities after Suez was a disaster for his business a professional man such as a university professor earning the equivalent of a month and having to pay per haps half of this some months to keep up with professional in come foreign diplomats
