If There Were No Nasser

Peretz, Don

New Republic;8/4/58, Vol. 139 Issue 5/6, p12
This article focuses on international relations. Reactions in Cairo to the events of the past two weeks have been relatively mild. Whereas Beirut, Baghdad, Amman and Jerusalem were for varying periods of time cut off from air communication with the rest of the world, life here so far seems calm and almost unaffected by the upheavals. In Damascus, capital of the United Arab Republic's northern province, Americans were warned by their consular officials to leave the country. Although there have been no mass demonstrations celebrating the victory in Iraq, or against the "imperialist" invasions of Lebanon and Jordan, although business and commercial life and communications with the outside except for the isolated Arab capitals, is continuing normally, this does not mean that there has been no reaction to "the crisis." Evaluations of American policy are of course colored by the vaguely socialist orientation of the regime in Cairo. It sees the hand of American oil monopolies manipulating decisions behind the scenes in Washington.
