Israeli politician, founder of Likud and the sixth Prime Minister of the State of Israel. Before the creation of the state of Israel, he was the leader of the Zionist militant group Irgun, the Revisionist breakaway from the larger Jewish paramilitary organization Haganah. He proclaimed a revolt, on 1 February 1944, against the British mandatory government, which was opposed by the Jewish Agency. As head of the Irgun, he targeted the British in Palestine.
Begin was elected to the first Knesset, as head of Herut, the party he founded, and was at first on the political fringe, embodying the opposition to the Mapai-led government and Israeli establishment. He remained in opposition in the eight consecutive elections (except for a national unity government around the Six-Day War), but became more acceptable to the political center. His 1977 electoral victory and premiership ended three decades of Labour Party political dominance.
Begin’s most significant achievement as Prime Minister was the signing of a peace treaty with Egypt on 26 March 1979, for which he and Anwar Sadat shared the Nobel Prize for Peace. In the wake of the Camp David Accords, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) withdrew from the Sinai Peninsula, which was captured from Egypt in the Six-Day War. Later, Begin’s government promoted the construction of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Begin authorized the bombing of the Osirak nuclear plant in Iraq and the invasion of Lebanon in 1982 to fight PLO strongholds there, igniting the 1982 Lebanon War. As Israeli military involvement in Lebanon deepened, and the Sabra and Shatila massacre, carried out by Christian Phalangist militia allies of the Israelis, shocked world public opinion, Begin grew increasingly isolated. As IDF forces remained mired in Lebanon and the economy suffered from hyperinflation, the public pressure on Begin mounted. Depressed by the death of his wife Aliza on 13 November 1982, he gradually withdrew from public life, until his resignation on 28 August 1983.
He died 9 March 1992.
According to a family member he was born on Friday, late in the evening. Starkman rectified it to 21.39.42 EET.
Previously, Judith Gee in Mercury Hour, 10/1979, "From him before he became P.M. The time is not certain, but I spec. a zero Cancer ASC." Esther Moldauer writes in Mercury Hour Ext., 10/1980, "His biography said he was born on Shabbos night (Friday after sundown) 8/15/1913, date from the Jewish Lunar calendar, not the Julian which was never used by religious Jews of Poland and Russia." Don Borkowski in AA, 3/1978, gave 8/16/1913 as OS with 8/29 as NS. Gee wrote in Mercury Hour, 7/1980, "He insisted it was Friday night, which is the 15th, not the 16th. If you use the 28/29, that is Thurs-Fri, not Fri-Sat." Isaac Starkman of Tel-Aviv writes in Mercury Hour 10/1986, "August 15, 1913, according to a family member, Friday, late in the evening. I recitfy to 7:32 PM EET"
