  • 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.

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.

  • Second Bernadotte Plan (1948)

    last update: 2016-01-31 06:05
    A plan proposed by UN mediator Folke Bernadotte on 15 September 1948, following the rejection of his earlier plan by both sides, aimed at bringing an end to the 1948 War and resolving the question of Palestine. He noted that implementation of the original Partition Plan has become unrealistic due to the situation on the ground and reservations made by both sides. The revised plan abandoned the idea of an economic union, called for an international regime in Jerusalem, as well as for the return of Palestinian refugees to their homes, and made territorial suggestions similar to those in the earlier plan. The day following the publication of the plan, Bernadotte was assassinated by Zionist militia Lehi in Jerusalem. Work Status:

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.

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.
