Study: Levi Eshkol, Golda Meir Wanted To Remove Arabs From Gaza

Levi Eshkol

The governments of former Israeli Prime Ministers Levi Eshkol and Golda Meir sought to transfer the Arabs of the Gaza Strip to the West Bank, according to documents published this morning by journalists Hagai Huberman and Dr. Miriam Billig.

Huberman presented several documents, including those documenting internal discussions at the end of the Six-Day War. In 1967, he said, General Haim Herzog, Moshe Sasson, Shaul Bar-Haim, and David Kimhi, members of a special committee appointed by Prime Minister Eshkol, suggested to Eshkol that “the Arabs of the Gaza Strip be transferred to the Jordanian kingdom.”

He later revealed documents from the “Alon plan,” which posited relinquishing a large part of Judea and Samaria to Jordan following the Six-Day War.
