Typed Letter Signed: "M. Begin" as Israeli Prime Minister, in English, 1p, 6½x8¼. Jerusalem, 1979 August 21. On official letterhead. To Damon Bateman, Raymondville, Texas. In full: "I thank you from the heart for your kind get-well message. I am feeling well, thank God, and am now back at my desk in the best of spirits. With every good wish." 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, 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. Slightly soiled. Overall, fine condition.
