Dr. Pipes,

I urge your readers to check this very interesting interview of Nasser in 1964 and it is in English. And the more it changes the more it stays the same. BTW: His English was pretty good.


More interesting would the correspondence between Nasser and Moshe Sharett. Nasser was looking for a way to have peace with Israel. This has been known for a long time. This correspondence can be dated towards the end of 1954. And it came to an end following the Gaza raid of early 1955


No doubt that historians will never agree if he was a hero or a villain.
