CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - When
President Anwar Sadat granted asylum
to the deposed shah of Iran he gave his
own opponents more ammunition. But
he does not appear to have created any
new enemies.'
The critics in Egypt and elsewhere,
who have demanded the shah leave
Egypt, have been attacking Sadat and
his policies for years. The presence
here of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, who
was forced out of Iran by a fundamen-
talist Islamic revolution more than a
year ago, has given -them one more

argument for attacking the gover-
THE MOST notable recent opposition
has been from young Islamic fun-
damentalists who have seized upon the
shah's presence to take their views into
the open. In one case they clashed
violently with police in the town of
Assyut, 235 miles south of Cairo.
The fundamentalists demand that the
government abandon Egypt's secular
system and institute the Koran, the
Moslem holy book, as the law of the
land. That would require such an
upheaval of established procedure and
behavior that it would amount to a call
for overthrow of the government.
They want an end to Egypt's peace
treaty with Israel, and an end to Sadat's
pro-Western course - including efforts
to shift the economy from rigid state
control to free enterprise.
HELMI GAZZAR, a 25-year-old
student who calls himself the "prince of
princes" of all the Moslem fundamen-
talists in Egypt, recently told reporters
that Egypt's fundamentalist movement
had not been influenced by the Islamic
revival in Iran.
The new student demonstrations
have raised the question of whether the
religious zealots receive support - and
if so how much - from Arab nations

opposed to Sadat because of the treaty
with Israel. Although the fundamen-
talists' numbers appear to be growing,
they are still a minority among Egyp-
tians in general, and even among
SAUDI ARABIA, Iraq, Syria, or
Kuwait have cut off economic assistan-
ce to Egypt, but none had any par-
ticular quarrel with the shah when he
was in power. They have been silent on
the shah's presence here, and have
maintained reasonably good relations
with the Iranian revolutionaries, who;
took over in February 1979.
Iraq, bitterly opposed to peace with
Israel, is now occupied in open confron-
tation with the Tehran regime in a
dispute over ownership of strategic
Persian Gulf islands, and armies are on
the alert on both sides of the border.
Iran, angered by Egypt's aid to the
ousted monarch, seized on the Assyut
clash here and a later Moslem rally to
call on the people of Egypt to rise and
overthrow their president. Most Egyp-
tians appear to have ignored the exhor-
THE SHAH, who underwent surgery
at a military hospital recently, doesn't,
appear to be an issue to most Egyp-
tians. The state-controlled media have
aroused some favorable public feeling

by reminding Egyptians that the shah
helped then when Egypt needed oil and
cash during and after the 1973 war with
The Moslem right is by far the most
potentially dangerous element for
Sadat. It can, with appeals to religious
sentiments, inflame crowds, even if
only temporarily.
Sadat's other opposition comes from
the left, and purely on ideological
grounds. Perhaps because it has nb
religious component in this over-
whelmingly Moslem country, it has
fallen flat in recent years.

he thought a major problem with the

said he hopes the new Assembly will
work toward abolishing large party

he said.
