The Israeli Disengagement Plan 1995

This paper attempts to shed light on Israeli aims to partition the West Bank between Palestinian inhabitants and Jewish settlements and describes the unilateral separation as advocated by the late Yitzhak Rabin. The disengagement plan is analyzed historically (as envisaged by Israeli generals) and as reflected in the contemporary Hebrew press. The author also discusses the issue of redrawing boundaries, security aspects and likely effects on the economy of both entities.
