Rabin’s Last Knesset Speech: PA To Be Entity “Less Than A State”
November 4, 2015

…In his address, Mr. Rabin made these specific observations regarding his vision of a peace settlement with the Palestinian Authority (PA) –– all of which have been implicitly or explicitly exceeded by his successors:

  • Rabin ruled out a fully sovereign Palestinian state: “We view the permanent solution in the framework of State of Israel which will include most of the area of the Land of Israel as it was under the rule of the British Mandate, and alongside it a Palestinian entity which will be a home to most of the Palestinian residents living in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. We would like this to be an entity which is less than a state, and which will independently run the lives of the Palestinians under its authority.”
  • Rabin ruled out a total withdrawal from Judea and Samaria and thus a return to the pre-June 1967 borders: “The borders of the State of Israel, during the permanent solution, will be beyond the lines which existed before the Six Day War. We will not return to the 4 June 1967 lines.”
  • Rabin ruled out withdrawing from the Jordan Valley: “The security border of the State of Israel will be located in the Jordan Valley, in the broadest meaning of that term.” READ MORE
