  • Land Transfers Regulations (1940)

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:35
    Regulations enacted by the British High Commissioner for Palestine, Harold MacMichael, on 28 February 1940. They were enacted in implementation of the policies contained in the 1939 White Paper on Palestine, and were considered to have come into force on 18 May 1939. Two zones were defined under the regulations, Zone A and Zone B, consisting of about 63% and 32% of the territory of Palestine respectively. In Zone A, the sale of lands to non-Arabs would be mostly forbidden, and in Zone B allowed only with the approval of the High Commissioner. This left roughly 5% of Palestine open to unrestricted purchase of land by Jews, along the coast and in Jerusalem. The regulations were met with strong resistance from the Jewish community. Following the establishment of Israel in 1948, the legislation that provided for existing laws to be carried over from the Mandatory period specifically abolished the Land Transfers Regulations retroactively from May 1939.

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:45
    A proposal for a comprehensive Arab-Israeli territorial settlement, with significant territorial exchange, made by Israeli geographer Gideon Biger at the 2004 Herzliya conference.

A Palestinian state would be established on the remaining West Bank territory, as well as the Gaza Strip and adjacent territory ceded by Egypt, with a corridor linking the two parts. Additional territorial exchange between Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Syria would complete the scheme.

  • Peel Commission Report (1937)

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:34
    The final report issued by the Palestine Royal Commission, better known as the Peel Commission, on 7 July 1937. The Peel Commission was a British Commission of Inquiry appointed to survey the situation in Mandatory Palestine, following the onset of the Arab Revolt, and make recommendations as to future British policy. Identifying Arab grievances over the continued establishment of the Jewish national home as the chief cause for the Revolt, and viewing the national aspirations of both sides as “incompatible”, the Commission recommended the partition of Palestine into three parts: a Jewish state, a territory under British administration and an area to be annexed to Transjordan. It further recommended that the Jerusalem-Bethlehem area, as well as a corridor linking it to Jaffa, be placed under a new Mandate. The 1938 Woodhead Commission was then established to further the prospects of partition.
  • Safe Passage Protocol (1999)

    last update: 2016-01-31 04:05
    A protocol to the Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement, signed in Jerusalem on 5 October 1999, following the timetable set in the Wye Memorandum and the Sharm el-Sheikh Memorandum. Its purpose was to implement Article X of Annex I to the Interim Agreement, facilitating operation of the Safe Passage, two transportation corridors linking the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, and to establish operational and security arrangements accordingly. The two routes were to link the Erez Crossing on the northern border of the Strip with Tarqumiya west of Hebron and with the Ramallah area. Only the Erez-Tarqumiya route became operational, and closed after roughly one year of operation, due to the outbreak of the Second Intifada.
