EILAT: Eilat is hot - sticky, sweaty, humid, unpleasant - just plain hot. Jsraelis think Americans who visit Eilat in July are in need of help - Eilat is a 'winter resort and Israelis flock to its warm beaches in midwinter - in knowing when and where to go for a vacation. But since we're hot likely to visit Israel n^xt January -much as I'd love to - Eilat was on our tour as a "rtust". Eilat is a name virtqally unknown to those of us whose knowledge of Israeli geogra^y is pre-194B. On the extreme northern end of the Gulf of Aquaba, Israel's ouU^t to the east (via the Red Sea and the Indian Oceart) Eilat was ^ port in and it is possible to walk along the b^ch almost to tfae actual border. .For a va/i6ty of reasons, the two ports have managed to coexist, if the days of King Solomon, but by 1948-al) that was left was a Jordanian police station. In the years sinceV Eilat has been develoi^ed into a major port, and its importance to Israel can best be illustrated by recalling that the Six Day War was provoked by the Egyptian closing of the Straits of Tiran, at the en¬ trance to the Gulf of Aquaba, preventing ships, from reaching Eilat. 'Ihe geography of Eilat is chilling: it is virtually a twin-city to Aquaba, Jor- dan'.s only port, and iil night ihe twinkling lights' of Aquaba seem almost within my reach as I look out of my window. Actually, Aquaba is only a few kilometres away, not flat, white, or populated by romantic Arabs. R is rough, harsh, with high ranges and vast craters, /antastically colored in the not exactly harmonfowily 'Bright svnlight. Its then at least withiMllL the' inhabitants are kibbutzniks overt hostilities o<icurring daily along the Suez-Cahal. Ev|en more frightening Is the' thought that at the Coral- Beach, where skindivers view the beautiful coral formations, you can easily look across the water at Saudi Arabia. Reaching Eilat from Beer Sheva was a gruelling desert ride, over roads designed by thc British to prevent rapid movement in case of enemy invasion during World War II, through the Negev. Those of us who expect the classic desert of Foreign Legion movies - rollingsand dunes with romantic sheiks riding sleek white stallions - are surprised at the Negey. It is hnd Beduins, perhaps himantic but decidedly hard- liwrkingandsqber. You have 1^, be, to survive in the Nfegev, thougi) David Ben Glirion's vision of the Negev a^the backbone of Israel's grfawth and economy is in¬ creasingly proving true. People who were in Eilat a feW>f4!^rs ago tell me it then rewmbled a frontier town, a sorit dr Dodge City on the edge ofthe desert. Not today. Tlig^,, are hotels, schools, and." growing indiM(ti;ial developments in Eilat. The porL has\ been haying proD||%srnQt enough c^ps to k^p all the longsboreiiien occlipied - but nothing that (<:<|yiTINUEq OH PAGE 4) LEO PHAFF served that institution in the capacities of Building fund chairman, president, and chairman of the re-education drive.
