  • Firman Granting Muhammad Ali Rule Over Egypt (1841)

    last update: 2016-01-31 05:54
    A firman, or royal decree, granted by Sultan Abdülmecid I of the Ottoman Empire to the ruler of Egypt, Albanian-born general Muhammad Ali Pasha, in 1841. Following Ali’s successful rebellion against the Sultan, the latter agreed to name him the hereditary khedive (viceroy) of Egypt, effectively recognizing his independence, in return to an Egyptian withdrawal from Syria and other areas. The boundary thus established, which left most of the Sinai Peninsula under Ottoman control, became the first recognized border between Egypt and Syria/Palestine.

  • Israel-Syria Armistice Agreement (1949)

    last update: 2016-01-31 05:39
    An armistice agreement concluding the 1948 War between Israel and Syria, signed on Hill 232 near the Israeli-Syrian border, on 20 July 1949. As the last agreement signed between Israel and an Arab country, it brought the war to its official conclusion. The armistice line largely followed the 1923 Mandatory border, though differences between the two lines were a source of disagreement during the Israeli-Syrian peace negotiations. Three areas west of the armistice line that were controlled by Syrian forces at the time of the signing were designated in the agreement as demilitarized zones: the Banias area at the northern end of the armistice line; the area south of Lake Hula, and a narrow strip along the Jordan River up to the Sea of Galilee; and the area southeast of the Sea of Galilee and along the Yarmuk River up to El-Hama.
  • Jewish Agency Partition Plan (1946)

    last update: 2016-01-31 05:34
    A proposal for the partition of Palestine put forth by the Jewish Agency Executive in July 1946 in response to the work of the Anglo-American Committee and parallel to the Morrison-Grady Scheme. The plan called for a Jewish state to be established over the coastal plain, the Galilee and the Negev, with an Arab state roughly covering the modern-day West Bank, and the Jerusalem area to be placed under international administration.
  • Sharon Plan (1977)

    last update: 2016-01-31 05:56
    A plan put forth by Israeli Agriculture Minister and former general Ariel Sharon, and approved by the Government of Israel on 2 October 1977, for a major extension of Jewish settlement in the West Bank. It was partially based on the Allon Plan. The plan was made up of four components. The first was establishment of urban settlements on the western reaches of the Samaria Mountains (the so-called Western Seam Zone). The second was an extension of Jewish settlement in the Jordan Valley (Eastern Seam Zone), which began under the Allon Plan. The third was encircling East Jerusalem with a “belt” of Jewish settlements. The fourth was the building of roads linking the Western and Eastern Seam Zones, along with settlements to help secure them. Sharon presented four main objectives he wished to achieve with the plan: preventing the Palestinian civilian population from entering Israel; creating a buffer between West Bank Palestinians and Arab-populated Israeli territories north and west of it; controlling the high ground overlooking the Israeli coastal plain, where most of the country’s population and industrial capacity is located; and ensuring the security of Lydda International Airport.
  • Israeli Annexation of the Golan Heights (1981)

    last update: 2016-01-31 05:42
    A law enacted by the Knesset on 15 December 1981, by a vote of 63 For, 21 Against, by the initiative of Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and his government. The law unilaterally extended Israeli jurisdiction and administration to the Golan Heights. This effectively constituted an annexation of the territory that was occupied from Syria during the 1967 Six Day War, except for a small portion detached from it as part of the 1974 Israel-Syria Disengagement Agreement. Two days later, UN Security Council Resolution 497 declared the law “null and void”. The majority of the international community does not recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and continues to consider it occupied Syrian territory.
