  • Description

    The publication of a proposed peace plan by Israeli Foreign Minister Yigal Allon in an Israeli newspaper has touched off a controversy in of Israel. In the plan Mr. Allon has suggested the handing over of most of the occupied West Bank of the Jordan, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights to a joint Jordanian-Palestinian state. The areas - captured by Israel in 1967 - would be demilitarised under the foreign minister's plan. The Israeli Knesset (Parliament) has voted to take parliamentary action against Mr. Allon for his proposals. But at a news conference at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport on Monday (20 September) on his departure for the U.S.A. for official talks, Mr. Allon staunchly defended his action.

    SYNOPSIS: By proposing the peace plan, Mr. Allon appears to be going against Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and his cabinet. His party's platform stipulates that the Gaza Strip should remain part of Israel. But Mr. Allon didn't agree that the cabinet was completely against the plan.

    He believed his plan was in accordance with United Nations policy, and protected both Israelis and Arabs.
