Suez Canal a 100-Year-Old Ditch
With 4,000-Year-Old Problem,

From the Encyclopedia
Judaica
Current negotiations be-
tween Israel and Egypt in-
volving the Suez Canal are
but a continuation of a prob-
lem nearly 4,000 years old.
While the canal itself is
little more than 100 years
old, a canal connecting the
Red Sea, the Bitter Lakes
and the Nile Delta was in
use under Pharaoh Seostris
as early as the 20th Century
BCE. This canal subsequent-
ly passed through the hands
of Pharaoh Neco, the Persian
conqueror Darius I and the
Romans, until the Caliph Al-
Mansur, in the 8th Century
BCE, blockaded it for mili-
tary reasons, whereupon the
canal fell into disuse.
The present Suez Canal
represents the fruits of the
French dream to link the
Mediterranean and the East
by penetrating the isthmus
of Suez, and the first surveys
were begun during Napo-
leon's occupation of Egypt
from 1798 to 1801.
Nearly seventy years were
needed to complete construc-
tion of the canal, however,
and it was not officially
opened until Nov. 17, 1869.
Two famous Jews brought
England into the Suez Canal's
history when, in 1875, Great
Britain, under the prodding
of Disraeli and the financing
of the Rothschilds, bought
the shares of Suez Canal
Company owned by the Khe-
dive of Egypt.
The acquisition of shares
in the Suez Canal, was de-
signed to ensure English con-
trol over the vital route to
India. Only seven years
later, British troops were on
the shores of the canal to
begin an occupation and rule
that would last nearly 80
years.
For the state of Israel, the
Suez Canal has been a bone
of contention. Though an 1888
convention guaranteed pas-
sage to all ships whether in
peace or war, Egypt effec-
tively blocked Israel's use
since 1949, going so far as
to capture and hold an Israel
vessel and crew for three
months in 1954.
As far back as 1951, the
UN Security Council de-
nounced Egypt's blockade of
the canal to Israel shipping,
but the council was unable to
sway the Egyptian rulers.
On July 26, 1956, Egypt's
President Nasser suddenly
announced the nationaliza-
tion of the Suez Canal Co.
and, at the same time, the
Arab terrorists, the fedayeen,
stepped up their attacks
against Israel. The terrorist
attacks and the nationaliza-
tion of the canal were, to
many, clear signs that the
Arabs were ready to go to
war.

Reform Day School
a First for Canada

TORONTO (JTA) — Offi-
cials of the Leo Baeck Day
School, scheduled to open
here next September as the
first Reform-sponsored day
school in Canada, plans a
cooperative effort with the
Agnon School in Cleveland.
David Steinhauer, the
school's executive adminis-
trator, has described it as
seeking innovative ap-
proaches in integrated gen-
eral and J e wish studies,
language instruction in Eng-
lish, Hebrew and French, and
individualized a n d experi-
mental learning.

Unable to abide Egypt's to-
tal control of the canal, Eng-
land and France provided air
and logistic support to a
strong Israeli force that in-
vaded the Sinai. By Nov. 2,
however. the General Assem-
bly had forced the issue, and
the army was withdrawn to
the Israel borders. The Suez
Canal was reopened in 1957.
In 1959, Egypt again pre-
vented shipping destined for
Israel to pass through the
canal. This situation endured
until 1967 when, as a result
of the Six-Day War, Egypt
sank ships in the canal, ef-
fectively blockading it for all
ships.

THE TOWN•S
GREATEST MENU

LION'S HEAD INN

Six years later, as a result
of the Yom Kippur War,
Egypt had a bridgehead on
the east bank and Israel had
one on the west bank, which
not only provided a massive
area of occupation for the
country but isolated the
Egyptian Third Army.
Now that a disengagement
of the Egyptian and Israel
forces has been brought
about, it appears that the
canal may once more be re-
opened to international ship-
ping.
