(Boston Globe, Herbert Kelman op-ed, 4/8/04): The most elaborate of these [peace] proposals is the Geneva accord, developed under the leadership of Yossi Beilin and Yasser Abed Rabbo, Cabinet members and leading negotiators of the Israeli and Palestinian governments, respectively.
(4/22/04): An April 8 op-ed piece misstated the status of Yossi Beilin and Yasser Abed Rabbo in the Israeli and Palestinian governments, respectively. They are both former Cabinet ministers.
(New York Times, Steven Weisman, 12/5/03): [Under the Geneva Accord,] Israelis would keep most of their settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem.
(12/12/03): An article last Friday about President Bush’s meeting with King Abdullah of Jordan misstated the effect that an unofficial peace plan drafted by Israelis and Palestinians, known as the Geneva plan, would have on Israeli settlements. Under that plan, Israel would give up most of the settlements in the West Bank, not keep them. But since the 400,000 Israelis in the West Bank and Jerusalem are concentrated in a few settlements and neighborhoods that Israel would keep under the plan, about 300,000 settlers would remain where they live.
