Sample text

The glorious march on Cairo never took place. When no one else appeared, Sadat and his men were forced to disband and go home. The failed attempt did not discourage Sadat. He continued his efforts, and the Free Officers’ Organization continued to expand. An attempt to make contact with the Germans also did not materialize, and Sadat was arrested. The authorities had no definite evidence linking Sadat to the plot, however, and he was released. It was not the last time that Sadat and his network would attempt to link up with the Germans.

Gamal Abdel Nasser took over the Free Officers’ Organization while Sadat was incarcerated. Conditions in the first prison were not too bad. Sadat’s cell contained a bed, blankets, and a small table and chair. He was allowed to smoke, although his cigarettes had to be lit by a prison guard because prisoners were not allowed to have matches in their possession. He was given newspapers and books to read, and could exercise twice a day for 15-minute periods. He decided to learn English, so he requested books in that language to help him improve his skills.

Betar was actively recruiting young people not only in Poland, but also in Romania, Czechoslovakia, Latvia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Germany, South Africa, Greece, Palestine, and the United States. 14 Despite these widely scattered cells, the most active areas of recruitment and other activities were in Palestine and Poland. Begin became active in the Betar movement and soon rose to manage the Betar cell in Brisk. He first saw Jabotinsky when he was 16, during Jabotinsky’s visit to Begin’s hometown. Menachem was not the only member of the Begin household to be impressed by the dynamic Jabotinsky.
