Biger’s Territorial Exchange Proposal (2005)

A proposal for a comprehensive Arab-Israeli territorial settlement, with significant territorial exchange, made by Israeli geographer Gideon Biger at the 2004 Herzliya conference. Under the proposal, Israel would retain parts of the Golan Heights and West Bank, occupied during the 1967 Six Day War. A Palestinian state would be established on the remaining West Bank territory, as well as the Gaza Strip and adjacent territory ceded by Egypt, with a corridor linking the two parts. Additional territorial exchange between Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Syria would complete the scheme.
