September 1955
New Republic;9/12/55, Vol. 133 Issue 11, p6
The article says that the shakiness of Egypt's President Gamal Abdel Nasser's military government is now conceded to be a root cause of the little war with Israel. Last winter Iraq dealt Egyptian leadership of the Arab bloc a galling setback when the Baghdad-Ankara Pact was signed. This pact with a Western ally challenged the very foundation of the Arab League, which Egypt had organized as an independent bloc. The Sudan proved the next humiliation. This spring when the British agreed to withdraw from Sudan, the Sudanese indicated they would prefer independence. Nothing could frighten the Egyptians more, because an alien nation would then control the Nile waters on which Egyptians depend for their very survival.
