Before Dr. Kissinger's visit to the Middle East to propose a final plan for peace, Begin reviews the threats he feels Dr. Kissinger has used against Israel in an attempt for force them to surrender territory. Sadat demands that Israel withdraw from the Sinai, Golan Heights, and Jordan River, but the state of belligerency will only end if an Arab State is created in the areas of Judea, Samaria, and the Gaza Strip. Dr. Kissinger refers to these demands as moderate. Kissinger stated that if Israel does not retreat and give back territory, war will be inevitable. Begin famously believed the exact opposite of that, that war is never inevitable, and "lessons of the past show how they can be averted." Begin makes Kissinger out to be a schoolyard bully, trying to force Israel into actions that are not good for the State.
