This chapter examines the “Rogers Plan,” which was considered a sincere effort to find a proposition the Arabs and Israelis could both accept. Although the proposal left the final status of Jerusalem unresolved, it took into account Israel's security concerns by insisting that its withdrawal from the occupied territories would only come after its Arab neighbors accepted Israel's “territorial integrity,” while at the same time addressing the needs of the Egyptians and Palestinians by calling on the Israelis to grant partial control of Jerusalem to the Arabs and work toward a solution to the Palestinian refugee problem. Richard B. Parker, a former Foreign Service officer with extensive service in northern Africa and the Middle East, stated that the Rogers Plan was “watered down in the name of realism” and, in retrospect, looked considerably more favorable to the Arabs than to Israel.
