Tribute to Eisenhower—Saga of Kindness
Dwight David Eisenhower's name is inerasable from history—not only the American
but the world records.
As the heroic commander of the Allied forces in World War II, his role is among the
most important in the annals of humankind.
He was a kindly man and he rose to the greatest position attainable by man—the
Presidency of the United States.
No man is faultless. He won't be rated among the great Presidents. But he will,
nevertheless, retain the love and respect of generations, just as he had acquired it in his
lifetime. It was an acknowledged view among students of political affairs, that he could
have been re-elected time and again, had the legal provisions permitted it and had he
wished it, because of the great affection in which he was held by his fellow citizens.
Yet, like all mortals, he had his shortcomings, and he had one blot on his record.
Arthur Krock, veteran New York Times Washington correspondent, in his book
"Sixty Years on the Firing Line—Presidents I Have Known", in which he describes his
experiences with Presidents since Theodore Roosevelt, wrote glowingly about Presi-
dent Eisenhower and praised his record, with this reservation:
"A blemish on this record, in both the contemporary and hind-sight judgement
of some experts in foreign affairs, was the frustration by the United States of the Anglo-
French-Israeli military expedition against Egypt in 1956. It is conceivable that these
allies, probably the Israelis alone, could have kept the Suez Canal international and free
for all shipping, overthrown Gamal Abdel Nasser's regime in Egypt and at least post-
poned for a while the threat of general conflict generated in 1967 by the provocations
of the Six-Day War in the Middle East."
Many held that view. An editorial in the New York Times (March 5, 1969), on "Mrs.
Meir and Mideast Peace," contained this paragraph:
"President Nasser's expressed hope is that the Nixon Administration will repeat
the Eisenhower policy of 1957 and force Israel's withdrawal without a true peace settle-
ment. But that arrangement led to the 1967 war and Washington is unlikely to fall
into the same trap twice." -
The Eisenhower error is, as Krock wrote, "a blemish" on his record.
But the many tributes to the departed ex-President affirm the love and respect in
which Gen. Eisenhower was held, the appreciation of his kindly nature, the truth in the
statement that was made by David Ben-Gurion to Gen. S. L. A. Marshall after the Sinai
Campaign that he can not forget the compassion of the U. S. General of the Army. Ben-
Gurion had said that "Eisenhower was .a saintly figure when he helped the displaced per-
sons after the war on Hitlerism."
The late President's good qualities will be remembered in good faith and for his kind-
ness and many accomplishments his memory is blessed.
