Sadat's final years were embittered by his feeling that although he had achieved the great breakthrough by making peace with Israel, he had failed to give his people economic security. At the same time he was threatened and eventually assassinated by fanatics who misused Islam for their own fundamentalist endsthe same people who have."@en

On Nasser's death Sadat took over the presidency, to the surprise and chagrin of his left-wing Soviet-orientated opponents who underestimated his abilities.

After signing the peace agreement with Israel's Prime Minister Menachem Begin and the U.S. President Jimmy Carter at Camp David in March 1979, Sadat was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize jointly with the Israeli leader. This mark of Western approval aroused resentment among those."@en
