This map was conceptualized in the 2003 Geneva discussions, conducted by former Israeli and Palestinian officials. Each of the first three options would entail a larger land swap than envisioned in this proposal.
53 Area of land to beswapped (sq. miles).Land going to Palestine
101 settlements.132,599 settlers (44% of all).
97.81%of baseline territory.
Land going to Israel
19 settlements.166,429 settlers (57% of all). 2.19%of baseline territory.
Gaza Halutza could serve either as farmland or as an industrial site, since most of Gaza’s economy is nonagricultural. Joining this area to Gaza would also help to relieve Gaza’s population-density problems.
This smaller swap proposal would have allowed only 166,429 settlers - barely more than half of the total settlement population – to remain in their current homes and be annexed into Israel. This would have required uprooting 132,599 settlers in 101 settlements — 38,373 more than the number called for in option 3, and 72,817 more than in option 1. A Comparison To put these numbers in context, the entire 2005 Gaza disengagement required Israel to move only 8,000 settlers, a process that left the country shaken.
Proposals modeled on the Geneva approach of uprooting much larger numbers of settlers could prompt serious social unrest in Israel, in addition to giving far fewer settlers a stake in supporting a peace agreement. The scenarios outlined in options 1, 2 and 3 could sharply decrease societal turmoil in Israel while maintaining the same 1:1 land swap ratio that characterized the Geneva exercise. However, grass-roots efforts promoting the Geneva initiative are continuing, as it remains the only land-swap proposal that already has both Israeli and Palestinian signatories
