  • Mariana Gallegos Dupuis University of Victoria

Abstract

After three decades of war since the establishment of the state of Israel, Prime Minister Begin received Egyptian President, Sadat, in Jerusalem for what unfolded to be a historic visit. Through a review of the relevant preceding history, a description of the central individuals, the itinerary, and the momentous consequences of the visit, this paper categorizes this historic encounter of leaders of estranged nations and cultures as a standard of hope for peace in the Middle East.
