Forty Year Ago Today: Sadat Lands in Israel

Egyptian President Anwar Sadat landed at Ben-Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv on, November 19, 1977. This courageous, historic first visit by an Arab leader to Israel, and the speech he gave at the Knesset in Jerusalem, is to this day credited with changing the geopolitics of the entire Middle East, opening the path for peace between Israel and the Arab world, and shaping a new agenda of political relations in the region.

Two years after Sadat's visit, in March 1979, Israel and Egypt signed a comprehensive peace agreement. Today, as we mark Sadat’s historic visit, our nations have known more years of peace than of confrontation and conflict, years in which open dialogue and cooperative ventures have been possible.
