Since the recognition of Israeli as an independent state in 1948 by the United Nations, the country has endured conflicts with its Arab neighbors who refuse to accept its legitimacy as a state. This paper traces the Arab-Israeli conflict, from 1948 through the Six-Day War and the 1973. The paper focuses on the 1977 Camp David agreement between Israel and Egypt, where, for the first time, an Arab state formally accepted Israeli's statehood and laid the foundations for negotiations to solve the Arab-Israeli conflict which continues to the present day.
From the Paper:"During September 1977, Israeli foreign minister Moshe Dyan and Egyptian deputy prime minister Hassan Tuhami met in Morocco. Tuhami said that Sadat was serious about peace and believed it was only possible if Israel withdrew from all the occupied lands, including East Jerusalem. Dyan believed that Begin and Sadat needed to meet to discuss the issues and sort out their differences.
Sadat was serious about peace. Decades of war had left his country devastatingly poor, and Israel could not be beat through military means without raining down destruction on the Arab world. He felt that if peace could not be reached soon, a new war would start. He also might have had the feeling that time was not on his side. He had had several heart attacks and was getting older."
