35yrs ago- Camp David Accord

Thirty-five years ago on March 26, 1979, the Camp David Accord was signed. The Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat signed the peace treaty, ending the thirty years of war between the two countries. The agreement was fostered by President Jimmy Carter. His years in the White House are remembered in his memoirs “Keeping Faith” and “White House Diary”.  Carter is best remembered for his post-presidential works and Douglas Brinkley remembers that in the book “The Unfinished Presidency: A Look at Jimmy Carter’s Quest for Global Peace.”
