Suez 1956

Hermann Frederick Eilts

Oxford University Press

The theme of this chapter is security arrangements, past and present, and the legacy of the Suez crisis to the present day. It argues that the Baghdad Pact, despite Nasser's rhetoric, was hardly a threat to Egypt's quest for political hegemony and might have provided security in the Middle East. Nasser's pan-Arab ambitions were regarded in some official circles in Washington as legitimate nationalist aims. Some Americans optimistically believed that Nasser as a political realist might find a peaceful solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict.
