Sadat to issue statement Sunday

arms included offensive and de-
fensive weapons. They included
aircraft as well as warships.
Britain for some time has
been selling small arms to
Egypt. There is no British em-
bargo on, the sale of arms to
Middle East states. The govern-
ment's policy is to examine each
order on its merits and in the
light of the Arab-Israeli power
balance.
Middle East experts speculat-
ed that Sadat's bold move
seems to have boostedhis per-
sonal popularity and strength-
ened his political power base.
By all signs Sadat sems to
have reduced Egypt's military
effectiveness overnight.
But in the seemingly illogical
world of Arab politics, he has
re-established his position as
a major Arab leader and de-
cision maker.
He has tweaked the nose of
a superpower. That's good for
one's popularity in almost any
underdeveloped country. The

late Abdel Gamel Nasser fired
the imagination of the Arab
world and won its overwhelm-
ing support when he started
defying the United States 16
years ago.
For the last five years, since
the disastrous Arab-Israeli war
of 1967, Egypt's leaders have
been able to do little more than
buy time.
They have bought it repeat-
edly by promising their people
a final showdown with Israel.
They have been unable to de-
liver on their promises, but no
Egyptian leader has been able
to admit this, and agree to ne-
gotiate.
Sadat's options had practical-
ly ran out when he sdecided, ap-
parently early this month, to
seize the political initiative
again.
He couldn't, make war be-
cause the Russans wouldn't
give him the offensive wea-
pons he needed, and he could-
n't call for peace from a posi-
tion of weakness without jeo-
pardizing his own position.
His popularity was slipping.
Cairo's once-dominant position
in the Arab world was waning.
Under the desert sun along
the cease-fire line at the Suez
Canal, in restive military bar-
racks and among tOe teeming
millions of Cairo itself, frustra-
tion bordered on despair at the

prospect of years of no-peace,
no-war confrontation with Is-
rael.
Public resentment against the
widespread Russian presence in
Egypt was growing. Hostility
between Egyptian army officers
and their Soviet military ad-
visers erupted in several inci-
dents. A petition attacking the-
Soviet Union was presented to
the National Assembly last May.
This followed student riots in
February and other outbreaks
of violence, some of them
against top government offic-
ials and most of them, traceable
to desperation among Egyp-
tians.
Sadat apparently became
convinced he could not win the
war with Russianshelp, and he
had nothing to lose without it.
If Sadat goes through with
his apparent intentions, he can
expect little further military aid
from Moscow. He will have cut
himself off from a friendly
superpower that has provided
$31 sbillion worth of military
aid since 1955.-
Nasser opened the door to
Communist arms 17 years ago.
Sadat seems to be closing it. In
the Arab world the immediate
public reaction has been one
of bewilderment and little com-
ment.
The question uppermost in
most minds appear to be, "What
now?"
Only Sadat knows the ans-
wer - but for the time being,
he is again No. 1 in the Arab
world.
