As part of the prerequisites for emerging from knip in Mornington Crescent (blame skdadl!), I offer you a Middle East thread:


So where is all this leading? Many years ago,
Israeli plans for granting Palestinians
autonomy were circulating. The best known of
these plans was drafted in 1977 by Menachem
Begin after he was elected prime minister. The
autonomy plan (for residents, not the
territories) led the Israeli government and the
military rule in the territories to set up
settlements, capturing land and spreading the
IDF around. The Palestinians rejected the
plans, and every Palestinian mayor resigned in
1981, saying they didn't want to serve as tools
of the Israeli occupation.
