How to get Arabs and others together

Dorothy Thompson’s article, We’ve Earned the Arabs’ Hatred (Nov. 10), is excellent. There is no doubt that “What the West fears is that Egypt will use the canal to promote her own political, financial and military interests.” The more Egypt gets the stronger she will become and the better position she will be in to wring more concessions.
