Mohammed Haddad compares Trump`s peace plan to previous proposals in this interactive data visualization for Al Jazeera`s AJ Labs. Despite the long history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, many people are working on peaceful solutions that respect the rights of people on both sides. The start of Thursday`s agreement, however, dates back to the same time, when Yousef al-Otaiba, the UAE ambassador to the United States, who worked closely with the Trump administration, wrote an article in the popular Yediot Ahronot newspaper, which appealed to The Israelis not to cancel the occupied territory. The Elon peace plan is a solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict proposed in 2002 by former minister Benjamin Elon. The plan supports Israel`s official annexation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip and the Palestinians becoming either Jordanian citizens or permanent residents of Israel as long as they remain peaceful and law-abiding residents. All these measures should be implemented in agreement with Jordan and the Palestinian population. This solution is linked to the demographics of Jordan, where it is claimed that Jordan is already, for the most part, the Palestinian state, since it has so many Palestinian refugees and their descendants.  In a speech to the UN General Assembly in September 2018, Mahmoud Abbas called Donald Trump`s policy towards the Palestinians an “attack on international law.” He said the United States was “too biased with Israel,” suggesting that others could play a mediating role and that the United States could participate as a member of the Middle East Peace Quartet.  Abbas reaffirmed this position at a meeting of the UN Security Council on 11 February 2020.
  Under Trump`s peace plan, Israel would absorb about 30% of the West Bank by extending its sovereignty to all Jewish settlements and the Jordan Valley. The plan is supported by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his former rival Benny Gantz, with whom he formed a unity government in April 2020. Netanyahu was expected to make progress with the July 2020 annexation, a proposal that was condemned by U.S. lawmakers from both major parties, human rights experts and world leaders. However, as part of the Abraham agreement with the United Arab Emirates, Israel agreed to temporarily halt the annexation. The Arab Heads of Government Summit in Beirut was held in March 2002 under the aegis of the Arab League. The summit ended with the presentation of a plan to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres welcomed this and said: “The details of any peace plan must be discussed directly between Israel and the Palestinians, and to achieve this, the Palestinian Authority must put an end to the terror of which we only had the appalling expression last night in Netanien”, regarding the suicide bombing of Netanya the day before, which the Beirth summit did not address. According to him, Israel is not willing to negotiate, as requested by the Arab League`s plan, because it does not want “a complete withdrawal from the 1967 borders and the right of return of Palestinian refugees”.  Right. But to be clear, it was not reported by Mark Landler, an honest journalist, who honors off-balance agreements.
