Kilometer 101 on road to Cairo at the end of the "victorious" 1973 October War
Dr. Aaron Lerner..
04 October '12..
[Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA: At the end of the "victorious" 1973 October War the Egyptian Third Army was "victoriously" trapped and "victoriously" starving to death while Israel negotiated with Egypt at Kilometer 101. The "victorious" Egyptian Army met with the "defeated?" Israeli Army at Kilometer 101 - but Kilometer 101 was not 101 kilometers from either Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. It was 101 kilometers from Cairo. By the same token, the "victorious" Syrian Army did not reach a ceasefire with the "defeated" IDF with the "victorious" Syrian army on the road to Haifa. Instead the "defeated" IDF was on the road to Damascus after pushing back the "victorious" Syrian army.]
President Anwar Sadat and his chief of staff Saad El-Shazli awarded Egypt's highest honour for their conduct during 1973 October War
Ahram Online , Thursday 4 Oct 2012
President Mohamed Morsi has granted former president Anwar Sadat and his Chief of Staff Saad El-Shazli the Nile Medal of Honour, Egypt's highest award, for their conduct during the 1973 War with Israel.
The medals were presented to relatives of the two men at the presidential palace in Heliopolis on Wednesday.
Sadat was also granted an additional medal of honour for his role during the war.
President Morsi is set to attend a military parade on Saturday to celebrate the 39th anniversary of the 1973 War, commonly known as the 6 October War or the Yom Kippur War.
Morsi is scheduled to meet with members of the Egyptian armed forces on Thursday at the defense ministry.
The Nile Medal was recently granted to former leader of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces and Defense Minister, Hussein Tantawi, and former Chief of Staff Sami Anan, after President Morsi had forced them to retire in early August.

I visited Hevron in November 2000 after the outbreak of the Rosh Hashanah War to see what could be done to assist in the face of the growing daily attacks on the community. After returning to work for the community in the summer of 2001, a bond and a love was forged that grows to this day. My wife Melody and I merited to be married at Ma'arat HaMachpela and now host visitors from throughout the world every Shabbat as well as during the week. Our goal, "Time to come Home!"
