  • Bailey’s “Enclaves for Peace” Plan (1993)

    last update: 2016-01-31 06:04
    A plan first proposed by American-Israeli academic Clinton Bailey on 24 October 1991, with an updated version submitted to the Israeli cabinet on 1 February 1993. The plan suggested the establishment of three self-governing Palestinian enclaves in the West Bank, containing around 90 percent of the West Bank Arab population (excluding East Jerusalem) and only 10 percent of Israeli settlers. The Gaza Strip, including its Israeli settlements, would also come under Palestinian control.
  • Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty (1979)

    last update: 2016-01-31 05:30
    A peace treaty between Israel and Egypt signed in Washington, DC, on 26 March 1979. It was signed by Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, and witnessed by US President Jimmy Carter. The treaty was the culmination of negotiations which began with Sadat’s visit to Jerusalem in 1977, and followed the framework established in the Camp David Accords of 1978, for which Sadat and Begin were awarded that year’s Nobel Peace Prize. According to the treaty, Israel was to withdraw all military and civilian presence from the Sinai Peninsula, returning to the 1949 armistice line. This included the evacuation of a number of Israeli settlements established since 1967, notably the towns of Ofira (Sharm el-Sheikh) and Yamit (near El-Arish). The withdrawal was completed in June 1982. Egypt agreed to the demilitarization of the Sinai Peninsula, except for limited police presence, monitored by the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) created in 1981. In addition, diplomatic and trade relations were established between the two countries.
  • Mintz, Elitzur and Porat's Peace on Earth Plan (2006)

    last update: 2016-01-31 06:00
    A plan for the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, put forward in January 2006 by Adi Mintz, Uri Elitzur and Hanan Porat, three prominent leaders in the Israeli settler movement. The plan suggested a crackdown against Palestinian terrorism, followed by a long-term interim arrangement involving Israeli annexation of roughly 60 percent of the West Bank, granting full Israeli citizenship to around 300,000 Palestinians. The rest of the West Bank would be under a Palestinian administration forming a confederation with Jordan. Separate transportation systems would ensure uninterrupted movement of people and goods within each community. The interim period would then be followed by a permanent status agreement in cooperation with Jordan and Egypt, with the latter providing territory for the expansion of the Gaza Strip, whose status would be determined in Egyptian-Palestinian negotiations.

  • 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.
  • Hebron Protocol (1997)

    last update: 2016-01-31 05:58
    A protocol to the 1995 Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement, concluded between Israel and the PLO on 17 January 1997. Signatories were retired Israeli general Dan Shomron, representing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and top PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat, representing PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat. In accordance with the Interim Agreement, the protocol concerned the redeployment of Israeli forces in Hebron, the only major West Bank city not to have been previously transferred to full Palestinian control (Area C). Hebron was divided into Area H-1 (about 80 percent of the city), to be transferred to Palestinian control, and Area H-2, to remain under Israeli control. A day before its signing, the protocol was approved in the Knesset by a vote of 87 For, 17 Against; the previous day, it was approved by the Palestinian Authority and the Executive Committee of the PLO.
