-- Egypt has changed into the embrace of the world's revolutionaries. Gamal Abdel-Nasser was transformed into a global revolutionary symbol and leader of the national liberation movement. The regime also began its journey of ascendancy by rebuilding Egypt with a comprehensive developed project for all aspects of life.

- The construction of the High Dam, the greatest engineering and growing project of the 20th century was started. the Egyptian capital, in cooperation with the Soviet Union


The functional role of the Zionist entity in the region has been demonstrated to large sectors in Egypt and the Arab world, when Zionists entered the war as a pre-emptive strike against Egypt, while Zionists were not directly concerned with the Suez Canal. The Zionist Arab conflict goes beyond land and border issues, and the role of Zionists as a bridgehead of colonial powers has become a constant issue of practical experience and that the functional role of the Zionist entity is to strike and disrupt any Arab attempt to achieve progress or advancement.

- Israel obtained the right of passage in the Gulf of Aqaba, which was guaranteed by the United States of America.

- At the internal level:

Gamal Abdel Nasser could not proceed with the policies of Egyptianization (attempting to replace foreign capitalism with a national one), and then nationalization only after the world map and the locations of its parties became clear from Abdel Nasser's national liberation project.

First, the West has become a clear adversary and, consequently, the program of Egyptianization has been transformed into an urgent need beyond mere economic need.

Second: The counter-revolutionary forces of major landlords and the Comprador associated with foreign capital monopolies, particularly in the banking, insurance, and financial sectors in general, recognized their difficult position

Third: Screening at the regional and Arab levels, Arab retreats resulted in the hostility to the Abdel Nasser project after the end of the 1956 war. Attempts to curb the Egyptian role and seek to blockade Abdel Nasser inside Egypt, fearing the extension of the principles of the Egyptian revolution to its countries, and its overthrow of Arab reactionary thrones.

In terms of the relationship with the Soviet Union:


Kremlin rulers realized that Gamal Abdel Nasser's leadership belonged strictly to the small and medium-sized bourgeoisie (lower and middle segments of the middle class), leading an expanded people's alliance to accomplish the tasks of national liberation is an acceptable option, and therefore there is no need to wait for a communist leader of each colonial and semi-colonial state. (Third World), although generalizing the conclusion drawn from the Egyptian experience has proven to be a failure and reflected on the general line of thought of the 20th Congress of the Soviet Communist Party, The success of the Egyptian alliance formula was used and disseminated to justify coexistence between the socialist and capitalist camps Although Gamal Abdel Nasser himself subsequently accumulated his experiences as Governor of Revolutionary transformed into an explicit socialist formula with the laws of July 1961 and thereafter to accomplish national liberation. He followed the path of Moscow, which bet on separating socialism and national liberation.

- Despite all the above, some say that American intervention is the cause of victory?!!

The response to them is in the Western documents that were lifted in 2000, which demonstrate that the USA was the fourth party to the aggression, that its naval tankers were transferred by French and British forces to the Egyptian shores, and that it was aware in advance of Israel's involvement in the aggression.

The original plan of aggression expected the arrival of invading forces in Cairo in 3 days, with public demonstrations cheering the overthrow of Gamal Abdel Nasser's rule.


In 1998, which marked two hundred years since the French campaign against Egypt, the French government commissioned the French writer and historian Robert Soléto to write a book on Egyptian-French relations between the sixteenth and twentieth centuries. The book, entitled "L'Egypte, passion française," was published.

In 1999, Professor Latif Farag translated the book into Arabic, and the book was published in the Reading Festival series, on page 312 of the Arabic edition, the writer recounts the details of the French Government's negotiations with the President Mohamed Naguib through a French intelligence officer named "Jacques Bénet" attended Egypt secretly, following the nationalization of Suez Canal Company by President Abdel Nasser, from the French Prime Minister "Guy Mollet" to negotiate with Mohamed Naguib to replace Gamal Abdel Nasser and the formation of a non-Western Government of national unity that would create public opinion for peace negotiations with Israelis And, according to Jacques Bénet’s testimony, Najib agreed with those proposals. but also required the British to agree to take office after Gamal Abdel Nasser's ouster, whether by killing him or capturing him alive in preparation for his trial.

But the invaders remained in Port Said for only 10 days, without being able to take full control of the city. The demonstrations that took place were against the aggression and in favor of Gamal Abdel Nasser. General Mohamed Naguib could not be reached after President Abdel Nasser's decision to transfer him to Al-Saeed. (Upper Egypt region)

This heroic resilience was with Egypt's international support and support of the threat of military intervention by the Soviet Union against the aggression forces, He struck London, Paris, and Tel Aviv with missiles, and he pushed the US administration out of the failed coalition. Although US President Eisenhower had already signed a plan to kill President Abdel Nasser during the aggression, in his memoir, he said that after the aggression from abroad failed to bring down Abdel Nasser, American plans to bring down Abdel Nasser from within changed and plans were put to assassinate him.

Suez Canal Authority embodied the Egyptian tragedy in the time of Muhammad Ali's family in all its dimensions The canal, which was dug into Egypt's land by tens of thousands of Egyptians who were bloodied before seawater took place, Stolen from Egypt, Suez Canal Authority, became a state within the state with a special flag, A special code, a special intelligence service and a private neighborhood whose entry is forbidden for Egyptians

The chairman of the Authority was treated as president of state surrounded by all ceremonies of reverence and respect, and no Egyptian official dared at his expense for something.

US, French and Israeli documents show that this company paid out of Egypt's funds £400 million to support the military effort of the Allies during the Second World War and paid large sums of money, estimated at tens of millions to the Zionist movement in Palestine as donations in support of the Jewish National Project.

After Israel's establishment, the Suez Canal Company's management set up information and intelligence coordination offices to communicate with Mossad and continued to pay Egyptian funds to the Zionist entity in support of it.

The company's future plans were all based on the extension of the Canal concession contract for a new 99-year period.

May Allah's mercy be upon Gamal Abdel Nasser and the heroes of the nationalization epic, and the martyrs of Egypt in the 1956 war.

The 1956 war ended with those results.

Who is the victor?
