The Camp David Accords, shepherded to conclusion by President Carter, are signed on the White House lawn. Based upon UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338 as applied to Sinai, but not the other territories, the Accords consist of two parts: the first is focused on Egyptian-Israeli relations and the second on the methods and procedures to establish Palestinian Arab political expression through the concept of autonomy. The PLO and Arab states vehemently oppose Sadat’s diplomatic acceptance of Israel; Arab states intentionally isolate Egypt from inter-Arab affairs. (source)
