Dr. Said’s Worldwide Connection – Egypt

Tuesday December 7th, 2004

  

I have visited Egypt many times and I found the Egyptian people to be very friendly. Though I was against the late President Jamal Abdul Nasser because of idealogical differences and because of bad experience of his government which I will explain in detail. I cried when he died as he was a symbol of the Arab nationalism. The last time I visited Egypt was in March 1976 when I joined a trade misison in Cairo headed by governor Arthur Link from North Dakota (as I was a physician practising in a small town, Carrington, North Dakota) who had a meeting with late President Anwer Sadat. Then we headed to Amman, Jordan stopping briefly in Beirut, Lebanon in the middle of the civil war where the Palestinians were guarding the airport. During our visit in Jordan I met my wife, (the mother of my children and married during that brief period) I will be elaborating on this trip which has very important events in the social, political and economical fields.
