Abstract:

A study was made of the possibilities for permanent Egyptian-Israeli Borders to replace the present cease-fire line along the Suez Canal, which is unacceptable to Egypt, and the 1967 pre-war armistice line, which has become unacceptable to Israel. The analysis deals with politico-geographical problems related to the Gaza Strip, the Suez Canal, passage of Israeli shipping through the canal, Sharm el Sheikh, and most prominently with stages of withdrawal of Israeli forces in the Sinai Peninsula. Conditions for withdrawl were examined and proposals made for the orderly carrying out of such withdrawals up to the line considered likely to become the optimum geographical and political border to assure lasting peace in the area.
