Talk:Allon Plan

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


Israel wouldn't gain control of significant water resources from controlling the Jordan River Valley, as it already controlled (and utilised) the Jordan's source, the Sea of Galilee. The benefit argued by its proponents was the control of the Jordanian border in case of an Iraqi invasion from the east. TewfikTalk 14:57, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

This isn't the place for Disengagement conspiracy theories, and I reiterate the point I made above. TewfikTalk 06:46, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Security is quite often the motive for Israeli actions, like the occupation of the Golan Heights.
Is ascribing intelligent thought and rational planning to people in powerful positions always a "conspiracy theory"? (Apoligies for lousy html skills.) Plexusranger [Nov. 2006]

Can we get a picture?[edit]

I think a picture would be helpful.Tallicfan20 (talk) 21:37, 9 August 2009 (UTC)


Were there any other plans made by Israelis for a 'solution' to their newly aquired territories ('newly' at the time)? Bezuidenhout (talk) 22:53, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

note for later processing[edit]

Allon published his plan in an academic journal: "Israel: The Case for Defensible Borders", Foreign Affairs, Vol. 55, No. 1 (Oct., 1976), pp. 38-53. I will add details and probably an extra map unless someone else gets to it first. One thing missing from our article is that Allon's plan included a large strip of Sinai under Israeli control.

original research in explanation why it didn't come to pass[edit]

"This plan was not implemented strictly as subsequent governments of Israel created settlements outside of the Jordan rift. Shafir and Peled assert that this followed a change in the "settlement" paradigm, "[s]ince the possibility of peacefully closing the frontier detached the means of the military frontier from the goal of security, continued settlements became an end in itself, searching for a new justification." [1] The use of this and the wording are original research, given that it relies on a single source, and the beginning line before even mentioning the authors whom it cites simply asserts their interpretation of the authors, or implies that the authors of this POV book are definitive truth. I say only let the King Hussein quote stand, given this, and he is a more reliable source, given he was party to the talks on this.Tallicfan20 (talk) 03:24, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

It was an Israeli plan and the progress of its (lack of) implementation was in the hands of Israel. Hussein's refusal to cooperate is worth mentioning but it is only a fraction of the story. Your argument also contradicts Wikipedia's preference for third-party sources. Your continuous removal of relevant material sourced to reliable authors, rather than improving it if it is not presented ideally, is edit warring. I caution you to stop it. Zerotalk 05:00, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
Jordan had no role?? They were informed of it too and engaged in the negotiations. Why are your preferred analysts, who you agree with, with your bent, more important than the most important Jordanian party to the talks? Why are your sources not "third party," when Hussein was a first party? No one proved his quote false, or questioned it. But you can question Shafir and Peled's conclusions, its their POV. Tallicfan20 (talk) 15:51, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
I wonder if you have ever read the policy pages like WP:V and WP:RS. You need to argue on the basis of the rules, not on the basis of what you like or don't like. Zerotalk 08:52, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Gaza and the Allon Plan[edit]

I could not find any evidence that Gaza was included in the Allon Plan. Unless someone has a RS for the contrary, I regard any map that connects Gaza with the Allon Plan Original Research. The fact that we can find such a map on the Web, without any reference, does not change that. --Wickey-nl (talk) 15:39, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
