    'Mr. Sadat's roots are here and he often comes back to refresh his spirit, to reminisce, but today he came back for a special reason, he came to celebrate with his people what he called the victory of peace at the end of the wars.'

    'he went to the grave of his young brother a pilot who was shot down during the 1973 war with Israel.

    Sadat; 'Within five minutes of the October war, he died, but now we can say 'not in vain'

    'Sadat was asked if he wanted the treaty signed only in Washington because he thinks it's premature to invite Begin to Cairo'

    'Not at all, I have no objection, but I prefer to sign the whole thing in the ceremony with Jimmy Carter. He has done it, let us be clear, it's his show, it's neither me nor Begin. The real test of the peace process starts after the signing, not the signing itself. I hope Begin will be raising hell as always and we shall continue, but by God, I shall be raising hell for him also'

    He said he would be pleased if Carter raised a little hell too.
