A Crucible Wrapped In a Crucible

September 1978
National Review;9/1/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 35, p1063
The article discusses the efforts of Egyptian President Anwar al-Sadat to improve peace negotiations with the Middle East. The Camp David summit is a kind of crucible which will help in reaching an agreement. For U.S. President Jimmy Carter, the summit may improve his prospects in the November elections. For Sadat, failure is more related to personal consequences. If Camp David is a crucible for the U.S., Egypt, and Israel together, the very possibility of its success holds out the possibility of a second crucible within Israel.
