Operation Kadesh/Suez Crisis

by WikiPeace editor  21.01.2013 As part of a strategic alliance between Israel, France and Britain, Israel invaded the Sinai peninsula in order to help regain western control of the Suez Canal after its nationalization  by Nasser. International pressure, mostly from the USA and the USSR forced the three countries to withdraw from Egypt. This operation changed the perception of Israel in Arab eyes, and it was seen from then onwards as a proxy of the former colonial powers in the Middle East. The operation also ended incursions of  "the fedayeen" from Gaza which were seen as a threat to Israel.
