Menachem Begin (Hebrew: מְנַחֵם בְּגִין‎‎, Russian: Менахем Вольфович Бегин, 1913 – 1992) was a politician, founder of Likud and the sixth Prime Minister of the State of Israel.

Before independence, he was the leader of the Zionist militant group Irgun, the Revisionist breakaway from the larger Jewish paramilitary organization Haganah. He proclaimed a revolt, on 1 February 1944, against the British mandatory government, which was opposed by the Jewish Agency. As head of the Irgun, he targeted the British in Palestine,and had a deep-rooted hatred of Britain, which some claim would resurface decades later with his aiding and supply of illegal weapons to Argentina during the Falklands war.

Begin authorized the bombing of the Osirak nuclear plant in Iraq and the invasion of Lebanon in 1982 to fight PLO strongholds there, igniting the 1982 Lebanon War. As Israeli military involvement in Lebanon deepened, and the Sabra and Shatila massacre, carried out by Christian Phalangist militia allies of the Israelis shocked world public opinion, Begin grew increasingly isolated.
