Gamal Abdel Nasser

Politician

Gamal Abdel Nasser was the second President of Egypt from 1954 until his death. He led the bloodless coup which toppled the monarchy of King Farouk and heralded a new period of modernization and socialist reform in Egypt together with a profound advancement of pan-Arab nationalism. Nasser is seen as one of the most important political figures in both modern Arab history and Third World politics in the 20th century.

  • Meanwhile Henderson, to his dismay, had learned about Secretary Dulles’s new ideas. In another cable, he opined that an “association of users” would prove even less acceptable to Nasser than the eighteen-power proposals and would “merely increase international tension and danger of resort to force.” Most awkward for Henderson, Robert Menzies had been demoralized by Egyptian press reports that the United States did “not really have its heart” in the delegation’s proposals and was “looking for other solutions more acceptable.”16
