Second Arab–Israeli War - Sinai War - Suez Crisis -  Operation Kadesh




Wikipedia : Suez Crisis


The Suez Crisis, or the Second Arab–Israeli war,[15][16][17] also called the tripartite aggression (Arabic: العدوان الثلاثي‎) in the Arab world[18] and Sinai War in Israel,[19] was an invasion of Egypt in late 1956 by Israel, followed by the United Kingdom and France.


The aims were to regain Western control of the Suez Canal and to remove Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, who had just nationalized the canal.[20]


After the fighting had started, political pressure from the United States, the Soviet Union and the United Nations led to a withdrawal by the three invaders.


The episode humiliated the United Kingdom and France and strengthened Nasser.[21][22][23]


On 29 October, Israel invaded the Egyptian Sinai.

In fiction



The novel Tancred, or the New Crusade by Benjamin Disraeli centres around the adventures of an imagined modern descendant and namesake of the Prince of Galilee.




Wikipedia : Tancred (novel)


Tancred; or, The New Crusade (1847) is a novel by Benjamin Disraeli, first published by Henry Colburn in three volumes. Together with Coningsby (1844) and Sybil (1845) it forms a sequence sometimes called the Young England trilogy.


It shares a number of characters with the earlier novels, but unlike them is concerned less with the political and social condition of England than with a religious and even mystical theme: the question of how Judaism and Christianity are to be reconciled, and the Church reborn as a progressive force.[1]

Theodor Herzl aka "Tancred" : "The Father of Modern Zionism"


Wikipedia : Theodor Herzl


Theodor Herzl ( "Visionary of the State"; 2 May 1860 – 3 July 1904 )


was an Austro-Hungarian journalist, playwright, political activist, and writer who was the father of modern political Zionism.


Herzl formed the Zionist Organization and promoted Jewish immigration to Palestine in an effort to form a Jewish state. Though he died before its establishment, he is known as the father of the State of Israel.


While Herzl is specifically mentioned in the Israeli Declaration of Independence and is officially referred to as "the spiritual father of the Jewish State",[3] i.e. the visionary who gave a concrete, practicable platform and framework to political Zionism, he was not the first Zionist theoretician or activist; scholars, many of them religious such as rabbis Yehuda Bibas, Zvi Hirsch Kalischer and Judah Alkalai, promoted a range of proto-Zionist ideas before him.[4][5]

JA: "And now you've got this character, Theordor Herzl.

People often think of him as the begining of Zionism, but you can see that he comes right from the Quatuor Coronati, British Freemason circle - the Proto Zionists, because when he was in college he had the name Tancred as a nickname and then he used that as basically a kind of secret code for himself later in life.



This is a character from a novel by Disraeli.


Disraeli was an author, he would write these, just really bizarre stories, which had to do with, what he saw as, an Anglo Semitic race.


There is always this idea, particularly in the British nobility, that this group is somehow descended from the ancient Hebrews.  Queen Victoria had this concept.


SO :  I've just looked it up on Wikipedia , it says : Tancred was an Italo-Norman leader of the First Crusade.


JA : The idea, the concept is of regaining control over the Holy Land, as in The Crusades."

New York Times :  'I Know It Sounds Mad'



Jewish Nationalism, the Jewish State, and the Unresolved Jewish Dilemma.

By Geoffrey Wheatcroft.


About a hundred years ago, a prominent Viennese Jewish journalist named Theodor Herzl recorded in his diary that he had had a vision: ''I have the solution to the Jewish Question. I know it sounds mad; and at the beginning I shall be called mad more than once -- until the truth of what I am saying is recognized in all its shattering force.'' That ''truth'' was that the Jewish people would know no rest until they achieved an independent Jewish state. It was the genesis of political Zionism, which was formally started in 1897 at the First Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland, and a half-century later took flesh as the state of Israel.


His Herzl is not ''Theodor Herzl (1860-1904), father of political Zionism,'' but ''an imposing and elegant figure,'' who fought a duel under the nom de combat Tancred and became one of the ''emancipated intellectual Jews for whom emancipation had brought as much anguish as happiness.''





haaretz.com : The Disraeli Legacy



The bureaucratic "bypass": a Jaffa street called Nes Lagoyim - Hebrew for "miracle unto the gentiles" - the title of the first Hebrew translation of "Tancred," Disraeli's 1833 novel, which alludes to the vision of the return to Zion (Tancred was the conqueror of Jerusalem in the First Crusade).


It bears noting that in his student fraternity days, Theodor Herzl's nickname was Tancred.
