Elon Peace Plan

The Elon Peace Plan is a solution for the Arab-Israeli conflict proposed by Israeli tourism minister Binyamin Elon. It advocates the formal annexation of West Bank and Gaza by Israel and that the now stateless Palestinians will become citizens of Jordan.

Elon is the chairman of the Molodet party, which is known for its policy of "voluntary" transfer. The primary motivation for the plan is the demographic trend that will make Jews a minority in the area west of the Jordan River occupied by Israel before the end of the first decade of the 21st century.

Elon and the Molodet propose that the Palestinian residents of the Occupied Territories be declared Jordanian citizens and then "Israel, the United States and the international community will allocate resources for the completion of the exchange of populations that began in 1948 and the full rehabilitation of the refugees and their absorption and naturalization in various countries".
