It used to be that the slogans spoke of moving a under the Banner of marxism leninism uni a the leadership of the communist party Forward along the Leninist Road to they also hailed communism As a the Bright future of Mankind but this last May i there was a switch. The new slogans tribute to the a militant marxist Leninist Vanguard of the working class and of All toilers tile steadfast fighters against imperialism for peace democracy National Independence and to the casual Reader the substitution of the word a a socialism for a a a communism May seem like a distinction without a difference. But or. Duevel who has been a most trustworthy analyst and Prophet Ever the years does no to see it that Way. He links the change to Moscow a interest in the Arab israeli conflict. Many of the soviet unions friends abroad he says do not share the goal of communism whether Bright or not with the russians. In particular the Arab world abhors communism for local consumption the Nasse rites Are All Lor a peace democracy National in dependence and socialism a but they done to go beyond that. The socialism they espouse is something called a Arab socialism a not the marxist Leninist variety. Too Moscow a willingness to adapt its slogans to the arabs comes at a time when soviet adventurism in the Middle East is beginning to remind More than one commentator of Premier Khrushchev s move into Cuba with Long distance missiles. Last week at a dinner meeting in Hartford conn., an organization called be Connecticut gun Guild presented a rare old Kentucky muzzle loading Rifle to the israeli government. The weapon which might have commanded hundreds of dollars on the auction Market is destined for the Israel defense forces museum in Tel Aviv. The evening was predominantly one of Good Fellowship but when colonel Uri carom the israeli assistant air Force and naval attach in Washington started speaking there was a somber hush in the Hall. The israeli air Force he said has had to put All of Egypt off limits save for a narrow strip along the Suez canal. The soviets have covered Alexandria Cairo and the Aswan dam Region with the redoubtable Sam-3 anti aircraft missiles which do not allow for Surprise raids at any Altitude whether High or Low. And the Sam-3s Are manned by expert soviet Crews. Along with the soviet migs now banding on egyptian airfields ready to take off against israeli planes should they threaten the Sam-3 Lites in any Way. This Means that the Arab buildup against Israel can go unchecked. Israel has Bren deprived of the ability to make preventive warfare the conditions that made Swift Victory in the six Day War possible in 15 67 Are no longer there. The preparation for a combined soviet egyptian operation against Israel May Stop Short of completion if the soviet economic condition is As bad As one hears it is. Nevertheless the russian people Are currently being a a conditioned for War in the Middle East. Pravda has taken to printing Long background pieces about Arab so Tot Friendship. The a Many egyptian Young men and women who Are studying in the soviet Union a Are hailed. A in the current year a says pravda a six Hundred Young Arab specialists will Complete higher education in the user and at the tame time one Hundred and forty Arab scholars Are to defend dissertations for advanced degrees in our country. Too More and More it is appearing that president Nixon a failure to Send those phantom jets to Israel was a prime boo boo. The soviets took Secretary of state William Rogerss peace offering As a sign of indecision and weakness instead of picking up the Nixon Rogers Olive Branch Moscow proceeded to raise the number of its military Mon in Egypt from some three a thousand to ten thousand. Our error in trying to placate the soviets in the Middle East is All the More astounding because Richard Nixon is a close student of communist strategies dating Back to his connection with the hrs Chambers Case. He has been criticized for not listening to Rogers on the cambodian strategy.
