tourists' delight. Egypt, on the
other hand, made an issue of "re-
turning to Taba," of not giving up
an inch of "her" Sinai — as she
claims Taba is part of it — and
thus challenges Israel's position
on the Gulf of Aqaba. The dispute
was not resolved so far and, in
breaking off the negotiations,
Egypt brought about a freeze on
her relations with Israel.
There is a historic irony to
Egypt's claim on Taba and, for
that matter, on all of the Sinai
Peninsula. Egypt, in regaining
the Sinai, claimed that it "gained
the land under boundaries set in
1906." However, documents from
the British Public Record Office
show that the British in 1906 re-
drew the map of Sinai and Taba
and annexed all of it, ostensibly
on behalf of Egypt which they
ruled and controlled de facto. This
was accomplished in the face of
the strongest objections by the
Turkish government who offi-
cially and historically claimed
title to that land.
The British sent an ultimatum
to the Turkish Sultan, giving him
ten days to agree to the occupation
of Taba and to the redrawn Sinai
map. They also sent a massive
part of the British fleet to the Bos-
porus to back up their ultimatum.
The Sultan had no choice but to
submit to the aggressors and cede
the territory to "Egypt" — in
realty to the British, because the
Egyptians played no part at all in
this drama of 1906.
It is also interesting to note that
Egyptian nationalists, as ex-
pressed in their press and by their
leaders, were totally opposed to
the annexation of Sinai and Taba;

they claimed that none of it was
Egyptian. Today's Egyptian lead-
ers, Prime Minister Mubarak and
his Foreign Minister Butros Ghali
(whose grandfather, the then
Egyptian Minister of State, was
called upon and intimidated to
sign the formal papers), do not
remember their own history. Is-
rael has recommended that the
"Taba border dispute" be settled
by arbitration for the sake of the
lasting peace agreed upon and
envisioned at Camp David. Mr.
Mubarak and his government
think and act otherwise.

Delay on UNESCO
move sought

New York — The American
Jewish Committee has called on
President Reagan to postpone for
one year the planned United
States withdrawal from the
United Nations Educational Sci-
entific and Cultural Organization
(UNESCO).
The AJCommittee move is
based on progress reported at the
recent UNESCO Executive Board
meeting in Paris where Western
proposals to reverse the-politiciza-
tion of the organization were con-
sidered. The President is
scheduled to review his decision to
withdraw from UNESCO as of
Jan. 1 sometime next month.
In a related development,
World Union of General Zionists
President Jacques Torczyner has
been appointed by the State De-
partment to serve on the panel
that is monitoring the progress
made by UNESCO.
