(2) All major Jewish settlement blocs will be incorporated into the sovereign state of Israel. (3) The Jordan Valley ought to be viewed in the widest sense of the term and it too will remain under full Israeli rule.

What Mr. Rabin described, although he called it a "state", was an Arab autonomous region in Samaria, Judea and Gaza that will neither interfere in Israel's national nor security interests while enable the Arabs to exercise all human, civil and religious rights afforded to them by international law.
