Memo from Oded Eran, Deputy-Director of the Middle East Division of the Foreign Affairs Ministry, containing points for discussion in preparation for Egyptian President Anwar El Sadat's visit to Israel
...................................................................................................................
November 17 1977
Ideas put forward for discussion in preparation for Sadat's visit to Israel On November 9, 1977, President Anwar al-Sadat of Egypt announced to his parliament that he was willing to go as far as visiting the Knesset in Jerusalem in order to attain peace with Israel. In response, Israeli Prime Minister Menahem Begin invited Sadat to visit Israel, and it was then decided that such a visit would in fact take place on November 19. In preparation for the visit, Oded Eran of the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs presented a number of ideas for things that could be mentioned in speeches to be delivered in Sadat's presence. These ideas were based on Sadat's own book, Revolt on the Nile. On the eve of the visit, the Information Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs informed Israel's diplomatic missions around the world that Cairo Radio had broadcast announcements regarding the Egyptian president's ultimate, stated goal, namely to attain a full diplomatic agreement with Israel. The Information Division also reported on the harsh reactions coming from parts of the Arab world, condemning Sadat's moves.
