Safe Mode: On
The Palestinian state of Ishmael

In the full flush of victory after the Six-Day War, as the Israeli military scrambled to impose its rule on its newly acquired territory its leaders also drew up plans for a Palestinian state. A rare look at slain right-wing leader's plan.

Three years ago, in a special Knesset session to mark the sixth anniversary of the assassination of tourism minister Rehavam Ze’evi by Palestinian gunmen, then-prime minister Ehud Olmert related that Ze’evi was actually one of the first to advocate the establishment of a Palestinian state.

“Two or three days after the Six Day War,” Olmert told the MKs and invited guests, among them Ze’evi’s children, “Major-General Rehavam Ze’evi, who was then assistant to the head of the Operations Branch of the IDF General Staff, hurriedly submitted a plan for the creation of a Palestinian State whose capital woul

  • its long but you can read the first part- its very interesting since Zeevi (nicknamed Ghandi) was allways known as very hard core rightist.
    he was the one which promoted the idea of pales. transfer.

    its very uniqe to find out that right after the war he promoted a whole defferent idea- a pales. state.

    perhaps when the settelments project begun he decided to leave the ishmael idea and "transfered" himslef to the other ideological side...

    zeevi was shot to death by palestinians More..

  • "Protracted Israeli military rule will expand the hate and the abyss between the residents of the West Bank and Israel" as if. What was the cause of the war to begin with? Pali hate. Who was involved? Arab state(s). THAT is why Israel will no longer cooperate with these people: they've been killing Jews since way before any creation of Israel, ransacking and murdering them.

    • Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member Zahir Muhsein said:

      The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit t More..
