and the like – ed.] would be transferred to Israeli control.
There would be an international presence in the Jordan Valley and other
parts of Judea and Samaria.
The Palestinian Authority terror organizations would be disbanded and
turn into political parties.
The large settlement blocs in Judea and Samaria would not be
