Today in history: Paving the way for the Camp David Accords

In 1977, President Carter met with Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin

March 7, 1977: In a meeting that paved the way for the Camp David peace talks, President Carter welcomed Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin to the White House. Carter told Rabin, his successor Menachem Begin, and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, that Mideast peace was a top priority. In November of that year, Sadat made his historic journey to Israel for talks with Begin, leading to the Camp David Accords. Sadat would be murdered by Islamic fundamentalists in 1981. Rabin — prime minister again in 1995 — would also be murdered by an Israeli fundamentalist who was opposed to the Mideast peace process.
