Golda Meir: Nixon is “My President”

President Nixon took bold action during the 1973 Yom Kippur War to save Israel and realign the Middle East in a move that would lead to the Camp David Accords at the end of the decade. Egypt would be pulled out of the Warsaw Pact and the Soviets were thwarted in their attempt at regional domination. Nixon used a nuclear alert- echoing what President Eisenhower had done in the 1950s to stop the Russians. The airlift ordered by President Nixon was brilliant.

The Prime Minister of Israel would forever call President Nixon, “My President.”
