Wednesday Evening Series: Politics and Politicians - January 8, 15, 22 & 29

3. Menachem Begin, The Peace Treaty and a New Israel. An astute politician and outstanding orator who had lived through traumatic experiences in Europe, Begin was the first Israeli leader to sign an agreement with an Arab country, Egypt, in 1979. His political success in the 1977 elections changed Israel which then became a capitalist, laissez faire country and led to the right-wing Likud Party dominating politics for much of the time since then.
