| | Six years isn't a long time. The Yom Kippur had a profound effect on both Israel and Egypt. The Camp David treaty included the Palestinians; however, Arafat decided to not go to the Camp David, from my point of view. That was a mistake. Israel was also interested to take a trip to Lebanon and Israel doesn't have the man power to keep forces in Sinai and launching an offensive toward Beirut.

This treaty was followed by the Oslo accords with the Palestinians in 1993 and the peace treaty with Jordan in 1994. In 2005 Israel unilateraly left Gaza which didn't bring peace for them because Hamas doesn't want peace but the destruction of Israel.
