PARIS (ZINS) — Gen. Andre
Bouffer, who led British and
French forces in the 1956 Suez
War, now chief of France's Insti-
tute for Strategic Affairs, is con-
vinced that a new round of battle
in the Arab-Israel war is unavoid-
Despite the Kremlin's avowed
support for a political settlement,
it would secretly welcome renewed
fighting, the general believes.
He points to a growing discon-
tent within Egypt over the Soviet
presence there. Moscow must
demonstrate that without its help,
Egypt is doomed. There is no bet-
ter way to make the point than
to have a fresh round of war, he
His views were publicized in
Figaro following a visit by the
general to Egypt.
Quoting General Bouffer: "No
Egyption government can agree
to extension of a cease fire so
long as Israel dose not withdraw
from all of the Arab territories.
Taking Into account that Israel
is not inclined to do so — es-
pecially in respect of Jerusalem
—Egypt will, sooner or later,
have to resume its war of attri-
tion in concert with the guer-
rillas who are based in Jordan."
(Fresh from an extended visit
to Egypt, a West German television
correspondent said in an interview
that he supports Bouffer's view
that the Kremlin is actually in
favor of a renewed round of fight-
ing between the UAR and Israel.
(According to the reporter, mili-
tary circles within Egypt confided
to him that the official Soviet stand
on the desirability of a peaceful
solution is merely a diplomatic
sham. It was alleged that Soviet
agents attempted to enlist the co-
operation of the head of Egyptian
intelligence in a confidential mis-
sion aimed at creating an incident
that could be interpreted as a pro-
vocative act by Israel in justifica-
tion of renewed warefare.) -
