Soviet Propaganda Effort Mounting Against Egypt

By Maurice Samuelson
(Copyright 1976, JTA, Inc.)

LONDON — The Soviet
Union is mounting a major
propaganda offensive
against Egypt's President,
Anwar Sadat, following his
abrogation of the 15-year
treaty of friendship and

cooperation between the
two countries.
Soviet and East bloc
newspaper articles and ra-
dio commentaries moni-
tored here have been grow-
ing in intensity since Sadat
tore up the Soviet-Egyptian
pact in Cairo March 14.

Sincere
best wishes
for a joyous
and festive
Passover

After suffering Sadat's
taunts in relative silence for
the past four years, the
Kremlin has clearly decided
to have an open confronta-
tion with him.
A number of distinct
themes are emerging in the
Soviet propaganda drive.
Firstly, Moscow is present-
ing itself not merely as the
only effective supporter of
the Arabs but as their
leader in the struggle
against Israel.
Secondly, Sadat is de-
picted as the betrayer of.
his predecessor, the late
Gamal Abdel Nasser, who
in turn is described as the
architect of the treaty
which Sadat tore up.
Thirdly, Moscow claims
that Sadat's policies are
weakening Egypt both in-
ternally and externally and
that the United States will
not provide the support
Sadat is seeking.
Listeners in the Arab
world to Moscow radio were
told on March 18, that, fol-
lowing the Sinai disengage-
ment, Israel and the United
States were ignoring the Pa-
lestine question and that
Israel was able to recreate a
no-war no-peace situation
while continuing to annex
"occupied Arab territories."
Moscow radio added:
"Naturally, this line of the
Egyptian leadership is giv-
ing all the patriotic forces in
the Arab world much anx-
iety."
The day before, Arab lis-
teners to Moscow's radio
were told that "Arab-Soviet
cooperation, specifically
military cooperation, re-
mains the most important
factor in the success of the
Arab nation in the struggle
against Zionist aggression."
Such arguments, beamed
especially at Egypt, are
being backed up with co-
pious quotations from anti-
Sadat newspapers and mag-
azines in various parts of
the Arab world — particu-
larly Syria, Iraq and the
-Sudan.
Memories of Nasser
were whipped up in an-
other Moscow Arabic
broadcast on March 20
which contrasted the for-
mer Egyptian leader fa-
vorably with his succes-

sor.
For
Nasser,
collectivization and social-
ism on the home front had
gone hand-in-hand with
close relations with the
Soviet bloc in the fight
against Western imperial-
ism, the radio said. The
CIA had frequently tried
to assassinate Nasser
"under whose leadership
Egypt marched on in de-
termination and faith to-
wards progressive
changes."
Sadat, however, had
taken steps to undermine
and freeze Nasser's policies,
the radio charged. Busi-
nesses had been handed
back to private owners who
could now be seen "living in
splendor and extravagance
in luxurious hotels and res-
taurants, spending in a
short while what would take
a simple worker or peasant
a year to earn."
The Kremlin's desire to
see the end of the Sadat re-
gime was visible in a pas-
sage in the March 17 broad-
cast. Dealing with the
proposed sale of C-130
American transport aircraft
to Egypt, the commentary
said that Israel's anxiety
over the deal could only be
justified if Israel remem-
bered that "the corrupt pol-
icy pursued by Egyptian
reaction" did not enjoy the
support of the Egyptian
people.
Soviet bloc propagand-
ists have also been trying
to embarrass Sadat by
quoting criticisms of him
by leading Egyptians.
Among them is Hassanein
Heikal, editor of the Cairo
daily, Al-Ahram, until dis-
missed from his post by
Sadat. Others include the
pro-Communist, Khaled
Mohieddin, an original
member of the 1952 Nasser
junta, and Lufti Al-
Khouli, editor of the Cairo
magazine, A-Tahiyah, ide-
ological organ of Arab so-
cialism.
At present, there is no
sign of the anti-Sadat cam-
paign abating, and despite
its annoyance with Cairo,
the Soviet Union is not re-
vising its over-all posture in
the Middle East. Judging
from the outpourings of the
Kremlin propagandists,
therefore, any hope that the
USSR will modify her bitter
hostility towards Israel is
an illusion.

Polish Jews Protest
PLO Warsaw Office

LONDON (JTA) — The
Polish Jewish Ex-Service-
men's Association has sent
a protest to the Polish gov-
ernment over the decision to
permit the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization to open an
office in Warsaw.
The letter, addressed to
the Polish Prime Minister,
stressed that the PLO is
dedicated to the destruction
of Israel, a member of the
United Nations whose inde-
pendence was originally
supported by Poland. The
news about the PLO's office
in Warsaw coincided with a
visit to the Polish capital by
Farouk Kaddoumi, head of
the PLO's political depart-
ment.
