Great Britain, Egypt, and the Suez Canal (Classic Reprint)
Most people seem to believe that we have in Egypt a vital interest which we are bound, more than other nations, to defend, in the free and unrestricted use of the Suez Canal. Few seem disposed to question the doctrine that the open passage through the Suez Canal is indis pensable to the commercial prosperity, to the political greatness, and to the very integrity of the British Empire.
An attempt, then, to demonstrate the fallacy of the popular idea that through Egypt and the Suez Canal our enemies can strike at our mercantile greatness and at our imperial power, is not likely to meet with a favourable hearing. Yet I hope to show this, and illustrate it from my own personal experience. And if it can be done, it is worth trying to do it. For it is of the utmost consequence that we should all under stand our real stake in the Suez Canal. This once clearly understood, we shall not be liable to panic: we shall not let ourselves be drawn into complications, wasteful of the blood of our citizens and the substance of our country complications, moreover, which constantly expose us to the danger of becoming involved in a European war.
