Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty


Today marks the 30th anniversary of the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty.  This treaty was a direct result of the 1978 Camp David Accords.  With the signing of the treaty each country recognized the other for the first time since the 1948 Arab-Israeli War.  The clashes between Carter’s Secretary of State Cyrus Vance and National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski were nothing compared to Egyptian President Anwar El Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, who weren’t on speaking terms.  Still, Carter persevered and the result was the most lasting peace in Arab-Israeli history.

      That Krugman piece is great.

      What I find suspicious is that now, all of a sudden, with the advent of threats against Democratic congress critters, the Republicans are saying “we get them too! But we won’t release it because we think it will fan the flames.” despite the fact that they are releasing alleged threats.

    Last comment on previous thread, from Brian:

    “Fox has decided it’s not going to air any of the threatening phone msges left for members of congress, they claim it’s “inappropriate”.”


    I dunno. Kind of sounds like NEWS to me.

    I find this whole “both sides get threats” pretty disingenuous.

  5. Oh I’m sure the clan that is Cheney will start claiming he’s selling out our security to the man in the Kremlin!

    I guess they kissed and made up or else McCain is really running scared. Sarah is going to stump with McC in Tucson.

  7. Seriously, Sarah Palin didn’t save John McCain’s tired old ass in 2008 why does he think she’s going to do it now? And how humiliating that you need the likes of Sarah Palin to save your ass now!

    McInsae has sunk lower than even I thought possible. He has no pride left. He needs to slink away into retirement before he humiliates himself any further. But, in his typical arrogant fashion, he won’t….

    frankly, I want McCain to win the primary and lose in the general. Anything to keep that stupid mf JD Hayworth from stinking up the halls of the Senate.

      ‘Morning Joe’ Ratings: Beating CNN’s ‘American Morning’

      CNN’s American Morning is a news show. “Morning Joe,” like “Fox and Friends” is an entertainment show; a sort of political variety show. He’s MSNBC’s Glenn Beck. If you need confirmation of what a right-wing wacko he is (and what a Stepford wife Mika is), listen to his radio show on WABC.

  10. I think we have a better shot at winning in the general if Hayworth wins. And if Hayworth happens to win so what, John McCain is now acting like a teabagger so it won’t make much difference which one gets in.

    I don’t think my stomach could handle that, dnd. I turn to CNN’s American Morning whenever I have had enough of MoJo and Mousey Mika, which is most of the time. I do like to watch when Lawrence O’Donnell and Joan Walsh are on. There are a few other guests I will tune in to see. But Joe and Mika are not worth watching. And don’t get me started on Buchannan….

  12. Seems like McCain and Palin are at a pretty small venue, odd for what is supposed to be a major campaign event.

  13. Community member Brainwrap helped Nancy Pelosi celebrate her 70th birthday by organizing a “flower bomb” — and you guys responded to the short, three-day effort, by having over 2,600 roses delivered to her office today.

    There are 35 statues of very important people in Statuary Hall of the Capitol. Thirty-four of them are of men. Frances Willard, suffragist and orator for Prohibition, is the lone woman. She looks somewhat forbidding, but then again, so does everybody else frozen in granite and marble.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton surely will rank for placement there someday. For now, they are making history, and on Thursday, at a reception in that hall, the two took an hour to celebrate together.

    Pelosi opened her arms wide to Clinton and they hugged tightly, cheek to cheek, two brilliant red-lipsticked smiles. It was an exuberant display of girliness from two formidable women nearing the end of an extraordinary week for both.

  15. Could someone please explain to me Palin’s wardrobe choice today?

      “Could someone please explain to me Palin’s wardrobe choice today?”

      It’s called “trailer trash chic.”

        It was “ladies day” on Tweety. On the left he featured Sec. Clinton and Reps. Pelosi and Shultz. On the right Rep. Bachmann and Caribou Barbie…

    Either cheap leather or faux. Not at all classy like Nancy, Michelle, and Hillary.

  17. It’s so hard to watch her speak and then to think that old fart thought she should be one heart beat away from the Oval Office. For that alone he should be voted out of the Senate. One one with judgement like that shouldn’t hold high elected office.

  18. Well a clever politico does dress to for her audience!

    ‘It’s called “trailer trash chic.” ‘

    I nominated dnd for the Best Comment of the Day. Who wants to second that? 🙂

  20. Well so it turns out we were right.

    Kapo Nazi Eric Cantor’s story of being a victim of violence was nothing but a lie.

    But then we all know that anything that comes out of a Nazi Republicans mouth is a lie.

    God Bless.

  21. Second, do we have unanimous consent?

  22. dooty

    Tweety had a winger on tonight that was crowing about repealing the health care leg starting with the Nov election. Tweety laughed at him and said there was no way that the Rethugs could gain enough seats in the Senate to begin to repeal the health care leg. I laffed my ass off. The would have to have 67 seats to make that happen. They have 41 now and there is just no way they can gain that many seats.

    It’s unanimous! And it’s in Arizona. I don’t know which would be worse, McC winning the primary and then losing, or having JD win and hopefully lose. There are a lot of crazy people here too!
