PARIS, France (AFP) Forty years ago Egypt and Israel signed the first ever peace treaty between the Jewish state and an Arab nation, upturning Middle East diplomatic and military relations.
The March 26, 1979 EgyptIsrael Peace Treaty sealed accords which had been settled the previous year at a groundbreaking summit at Camp David, near Washington, between Egypts President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin.
Signed in a landmark Washington ceremony overseen by US President Jimmy Carter, it ended three decades of warring between the neighbors and remains in place today.

We watched a movie about that not long ago. Can’t recall the name right now. Pretty interesting though.

It was and is good.
It is good for Egypt that Egyptians overthrew Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood (who killed Sadat).
It is my understanding that Egyptian President (once General) Sisi is from very near where Sadat was from in Egypt.

I think Pharoah signed the first one didn't he? Relented too as I recall.

And then Sadat was assassinated. Horrible. I wasn't following world events then, but I had the impression he was a man with a heart and intelligence.
