West Bank


A set of policy proposals - security, economic, and political - that will enhance the security and well-being of Israelis living on both sides of the ‘Green Line,’ while reducing friction between Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank.

Security Measures


COMPLETE THE SECURITY BARRIER

Complete the security barrier along the Jerusalem envelope in order to prevent illegal workers and smugglers infiltrating Israel from the West Bank.


LAW AND ORDER


Establish a robust and permanent security presence in Palestinian neighborhoods, and increase the budget and personnel for the Jerusalem municipal police and the border police.


SECURE ISRAEL'S BORDER

Track and halt Palestinians working illegally inside Israel, and expand legal Palestinian employment in Israel by issuing tens of thousands of additional work permits to West Bank Palestinians.

Economic Measures


AREA C TO B

Transfer 1% of Area C to Area B, enabling 200,000 Palestinians greater autonomy and legalizing 11,000 homes under demolition orders.


ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Remove impediments to economic development by connecting Israeli and Palestinian financial institutions and banks, resuming the operation of the Joint Economic Committee, and developing Palestinian industrial and employment zones adjacent to the security barrier.


EASE RESTRICTIONS

Ease restrictions on the transport of goods within the West Bank, between the West Bank and Gaza, and on exports to Israel and beyond.

Political Measures


ASSIST SETTLERS

Assist settlers living east of the security barrier who wish to relocate.


MAKE A POLITICAL DECLARATION


Clarify that Israel has no claims on sovereignty east of the security barrier; freeze all new construction and expansion east of the security barrier; control new construction in settlements west of the security barrier; confirm that Israel is committed to a two-state solution based on the 1967 lines with adjustments for security and demography.
