Israel Charges That Moscow is Preparing to Welcome Former Pro-nazi Arab

Israeli sources charged today that the Soviet Union is prepared to welcome to Moscow a former pro-Nazi Arab in order to further its political and military penetration of the Middle East. The sources said that Egyptian Vice President Anwar El-Saadat, who will head an Egyptian mission to Russia, was an organizer of the movement for an Arab alliance with Nazi Germany in 1941. They said that Mr. El-Saadat confirmed this role in his personal memoire, “Revolution on the Nile.”

The Israelis said that Soviet experts and advisers are now active on all levels of the Egyptian economy and Army and fulfill virtually every operational function except actual fighting. They said that Moscow is also prepared to receive the first official delegation of Arab terrorist organizations. These sources believe that the Soviets will grant more arms to Egypt which means that more Soviet Technicians will be going to Cairo to instruct the Egyptians.
