Mid-East War Fears Have Roots In P re-Wo rid War I Nationalism By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — Any war in the Middle East — springing out of Arab'resentment of the Jews of Israel and the West — will have its roots in nationalism and memories that go back beyond World War I. The Mediterranean is at Israel's back. On all other sides it is surrounded by Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. Al four fought the Israelis in 1948. Britain and France dominated the Arabs, that area between the end of World War I and the end of World War II and reluctantly let go. The British hold on Egypt went back even further. When World War I began the Turkish Empire included what has become Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and Jordan. Britain and France to win over the Arabs when Turkey got into the war on Germany s side promised freedom to the Arabs if Turkey' lost. Turkey lost The League of Nations then E ave Britain and France a mandate - control — over what had been Turkish territory. The French got Lebanon and Syria, granted them independence •1920, but didn't net out. Got Mandate The British got a mandate over Palestine and what is now Jordan but didn't give Jordan independence until 1946. The British didn t Bet out of Palestine until 1948. Meanwhile, the Jews, who had not had a majority In Palestine since the Romans defeated them In 70 A.D.. began in the 20th century to demand that Palestine be made a Jewish homeland. In 1917 the British said they looked favorably on the idea. The British did nothing to make it a reality. When Jews swarmed il to Palestine to escape Hitler's persecutions in the 1930s, the Arabs were alarmed. Came World War H Which weakened the French and British. France got out of Lebanon and Syria in 1946. Britain let Jordan declare Independence the same year but retained military ties with the Jordanians. In 1941 the United Nations voted to divide Palestine into two states: One Arab, the other Jewish. The Arabs protested this creation of a Jewish state where, none had existed for 1,900 years. The British were getting out of Palestine. On May 14, 1948, the Jews there declared the republic of Israle. . Syria, Jordan. Egypt and Lebanon went to war against the Is- ralls. It lasted a year. The armistice that followed has been broken many times since by border clashes. The Arabs refuse to recognize Israel as a state. In that war the outnumbered Israelis — there are about 1,600,000 of them while their four neighbors have 40 million people— oui- — fought the Arabs and wound up Brennan. "And get that lousy fake with much of Palestine which the i gun out of here too." U.N. had said should be Arab. The man did, leaving the cash That was another sore spot for drawer untapped. Egypt has a leading part In thi: picture now. Britain moved intc the kingdom of Egypt in 1882 to administer it and make It a pro tectorate in 1914 to defend it from the Turks. In 192J In 1922 Britain ended the protectorate, recognizing Egypt as sovereign state, but reserve vari ous rights there, including de fense. This was a goad 16 the Egyptians who were militarily un able to throw the British out. A movement for complete inde pendence began in Egypt, and in 1947 the Egyptians went before the U.N. to demand that Britain get out. The British did, finally . On July 26, 1952, revolution lee by the army threw out King Pa rouk. The man behind this coup was Lt. Col. Gamal Abdel Nasser now Egypt's Premier, all-arount strong man, and new leader of the Arab world. In stepping into Arab leadership Nasser did what someone was bound to do sooner or later. He took over a vacuum. The Arabs had been disunited, their leaders distrustful of one another. Thi." lack of unity helped whip them in the war with Israel. Hungry Burqlor Easy to Catch ARVADA. Colo.
