Menachem Begin signs a typescript from his book White
Typescript signed: "M. Begin" in English, 1p, 8½x11.
Titled: "From.....'WHITE NIGHTS'" In part: "If my
analysis of all the factors is correct, the following conclusion may be drawn:
Just as there are no grounds for supposing that when Stalin dies the Soviet
regime will immediately collapse, so there is no justification for thinking that
nothing will change in Russia after his death...." In 1973, the Likud Party
was formed and Menachem Begin (1913-1992) became its leader. When Likud won the
elections in 1977, he became Prime Minister. It was during this tenure in 1978,
that Begin and Egyptian President Anwar el-Sadat received the Nobel Peace Prize
for the peace treaty they would sign the following year at Camp David,
after much of the Sinai was returned to Egypt. In June 1981, Begin asked the
cabinet to approve the bombing of the Iraqi nuclear reactor at Osirak. On
Shavuot, Israeli planes flew below radar detection through Arab airspace and
destroyed the facility, which Israel later claimed had been primed for a start
up. In 1982, he authorized the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. In failing health
and following the death of his wife, Aliza, Begin stepped down in September
1983. Begin's book, White Nights, published in 1957, described his
experiences in Europe in World War II. Slightly creased.
