  • 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.
  • Jewish Agency Partition Proposal to the Woodhead Commission (1938)

    last update: 2016-01-31 05:33
    A proposal submitted by the Jewish Agency, chaired by David Ben-Gurion, to the Woodhead Commission, a British Royal Commission mandated with drawing up proposals for the partition of 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.

  • League of Nations Mandate for Palestine (1922)

    last update: 2016-01-31 05:04
    A legal document adopted by the League of Nations on 24 July 1922. It established the United Kingdom as a Mandatory in control of Palestine, which had been officially under military government since the British occupied it from the Ottoman Empire during World War I. It was based on the Sykes-Picot Agreement and the understandings reached at the Paris and San Remo Conferences. The document provided for the administration of Palestine by the British with the aim of establishing the Jewish national home as mentioned in the 1917 Balfour Declaration, ensuring that the rights and positions of other communities in Palestine, as well as holy places, be preserved. Article 25 of the Mandate allowed the British, with the consent of the League of Nations, to “withhold or postpone” the application of certain provisions of the Mandate with regard to the territory east of the Jordan River and administer it separately from the rest of Palestine, a right which it exercised with the Transjordan Memorandum later in 1922.

  • 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.
