Sadat, Anwar

(1918-81)
   Sadat became president of Egypt after the death of Gamal Abdul Nasser and led Egypt in the Yom Kippur War (1973). He proposed direct negotiations with Israel to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict and made his historic visit to Israel in November 1977. He signed the Camp David Accords of 1978 and the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty of 1979 and established the process of peace and normalization of relations between Egypt and Israel. For signing the peace treaty, he and Menachem Begin shared the 1978 Nobel Prize for peace. Sadat was assassinated by Muslim terrorists on 6 October 1981 while reviewing a military parade in Cairo.
