Biography | show moreshow less
Menachem Begin (1913-1992), became the leader of the Likud Party when it was formed in 1973. 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.
