Isratine proposal


Isratine proposal

The Isratine proposal (also referred to as the Saif al-Islam al-Gaddafi proposal) is a proposal to permanently resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a secular, federalist, republican one-state solution, which was first articulated by Saif al-Islam al-Gaddafi, the son of Muammar al-Gaddafi of Libya, at the Chatham House in London.Fact|date=April 2008

Its main points are:
*Creation of a binational Jewish-Arab state called the "Federal Republic of the Holy Land";
*Partition of the state into 5 administrative regions, with Jerusalem as a city-state;
*Return of all Palestinian refugees;
*Supervision by the United Nations of free and fair elections on the first and second occasions;
*Removal of weapons of mass destruction from the state; and
*Recognition of the state by the Arab League.

Saif al-Islam al-Gaddafi's proposal was eventually incorporated in Libyan head-of-state Muammar al-Gaddafi's White Book of May 8, 2003, which serves as his official guide to address the Arab-Israeli conflict and how to solve it.cite paper| last = Al Gathafi | first = Muammar | title = White Book (ISRATIN) | date = 2003 | url = http://www.algathafi.org/html-english/cat_03_03.htm | accessdate = 2008-04-16] Despite the suggestion of "Federal Republic of the Holy Land" as the name of this hypothetical new state, "Isratine" (Arabic إسراطين , a portmanteau of the names "Israel" and "Palestine", sometimes rendered "Israstine" or "Israteen") has been used as a "working title" for the notion of a single state in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza Strip, with Arab and Jewish inhabitants of all three having citizenship and equal rights in the combined entity.

Muammar al-Gaddafi has championed the "Isratine proposal" but it has been met with little recognition from prominent parties in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.Fact|date=April 2008
