2 Suez Canal

3 In 1869, after 10 years of work by the French and Egyptian laborers, the Suez Canal joined the Mediterranean and Red Seas at a length of about 100 miles (161 km)

4 FC.146D COLONIAL AND POST COLONIAL EGYPT

5 Britain takes Egypt in 1882 to protect Suez Canal (FC.122)

6 Egypt & the Sudan "We don't want to fight, but by jingo if we do We've got the ships, we've got the guns, and got the money too" Britain’s interest in Egypt lay with the Suez Canal, which opened in Originally, this canal was a joint venture between France and Egypt. However, the ruler of Egypt fell into debt and had to borrow money from British banks, using his shares in the canal as collateral for the loan. Unfortunately, he defaulted on the loan, and Britain took over the Egyptian half of the canal.

7 FC. 122 EUROPEAN IMPERIAL EXPANSION INTO AFRICA (c ) Other politicians, not wanting to lose popularity, also support imperialism Brit. seizes Egypt to guard its interests in Suez Canal Henry Stanley’s travel account  Interest in Afr. Br. conquers Zulus in S. Afr to protect Dutch Boers Early efforts focus on Africa as the main object of imperial expansion despite its relative unimportance to Britain’s economy. Brit. feels powerless to stop these changes & econ. depression in 1873 Hard to compete vs cheap labor & newer factories More complex soc  Harder to unite politically German unific. & Balkan turmoil upset balance of power (FC.119) Spread of Ind. Rev. outside Britain (FC.116) Social changes brought by Ind.. Rev. (FC.113) Several problems for Britain after 1870: Br. Prime min., Benjamin Disraeli proposes imperial expansion which will: Protect Br’s econ. interests overseas Enhance Britain’s internat’l prestige Provide new mkts. & resources Br. conquers Sudan to keep it from blocking Nile R.

8 The British defeat the Egyptians at Tel-el-Kebir (1882) Alexandria, Egypt after the British naval bombardment in 1882 However, Egypt was rapidly destabilizing, so Britain annexed it as a colony to protect its investment in the Suez.

9 All seemed safe until an engineer named Sam Baker published an article showing how Sudan, Egypt’s southern neighbor, could cut off Egypt’s lifeline: the Nile. As ridiculous as this fear was, it prompted Britain to take over Sudan as well. SUDAN

10 In 1898, the Sudanese, led by a religious leader known as the Mahdi, rebelled against British rule. At Omdurman (9/2/1898), 20,000 British and Egyptian troops, supported by heavily armed gunboats, shattered the suicidal assaults of the Mahdist forces. Below, the surviving rebels flee, having lost 10,000 men as opposed to only 48 British soldiers.

11 Many times, native forces had modern European weapons in such battles. However, they still lacked the tactics, discipline, and overall mindset needed to use them effectively.

16 In 1935, Mussolini, encouraged by Hitler’s success, sent Italian forces into Ethiopia, using only the weakest of excuses to cover this blatant act of aggression. When the League of Nations threatened economic sanctions against Italy, Mussolini said a boycott on oil (which would have crippled his war machine) would mean war with the League's members. The League, without any real force to back it up, fell for this bluff.

22 Gamal Abdul Nasser, the charismatic officer who replaced Egypt’s king Farouk. Nasser was the first leader of a developing nation to play the superpowers against each other to get as much foreign aid as possible. He realized, that neither side cared how responsible a regime was as long as it lined up with their side in the Cold War.

36 In 1958, Syrian leaders, fearing a communist takeover in their nation, called upon Nasser for help. The result was the United Arab Republic (UAR), a union of Egypt and Syria that lasted from under Nasser’s presidency with its capital in Cairo. Nasser’s ambition was to have the UAR include the whole Arab world. While communism was thwarted in Syria, its people felt increasingly like they were being treated as Egyptian subjects. Consequently, Syria withdrew from the UAR in 1961, although Egypt continued to use the name until after Nasser died in 1971.**

53 With its army faced with destruction Egypt called in both the United States and Soviet Union to arbitrate a cease-fire. This precipitated a diplomatic crisis with the potential danger of US & Soviet troops facing each other in a highly volatile situation. Fortunately, Egypt’s leader, Anwar Sadat, defused the crisis by withdrawing his invitation to the Soviets.

54 Although initially caught off guard by the surprise attack, the Israelis recovered and surrounded the Egyptian army within a few weeks.

56 Because of the oil embargo in 1973, the average price of a gallon of gas jumped 16.6 cents to 55.1 cents in 1974, leading to long gas lines, gas shortages, and a temporary effort to create more fuel efficient cars. However, when some members of OPEC broke ranks in the 1980s, the price of oil came down and our beloved gas hogs were back
