  • McMahon-Hussein Letters (1915)

    last update: 2016-11-08 04:50
    An exchange of letters between Henry McMahon, British High Commissioner in Egypt, and Hussein bin Ali, Sharif of Mecca and later King of Hejaz, that took place in late 1915 and early 1916. With the Arabs planning to revolt against the Ottoman Empire in the midst of World War I, the exchange promised British support to the Arabs, and British recognition of Arab independence following the war, with certain territorial reservations. Implementation of the British promises contained in the exchange was complicated by the exposure of the secret Sykes-Picot Agreement, defining British and French spheres of influence in the Middle East, as well as the publication of the Balfour Declaration, endorsing the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.

The proposal was examined in Chapters IX (Jerusalem) and XII (the rest of Palestine) of the Commission’s final report, published in November 1938. Its proposed borders for the Jewish state included all of the Galilee, most of the coastal plain and a corridor linking it to the Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem. The Arab state was to include today’s northern West Bank, the northern Negev and Jaffa, with the rest - including a corridor linking the Jerusalem area to Jaffa through the Lydda airport - remaining under Mandatory control.
  • 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.
