Shmuel Tamir, 64, a former Jewish underground leader who was Israel's Justice Minister from 1977 to 1980 and who also helped draft the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty, died June 29 in Herzliya, Israel. The cause of death was not reported.
He was credited with having worked out a key clause guaranteeing Israeli oil supplies from the Sinai peninsula which broke a deadlock in March 1979, enabling the treaty to be signed. Later he was involved in negotiating the release of Israelis captured in Lebanon in exchange for Palestinians and Lebanese held in Israel.
