Abstract

The Camp David agreement occurred as a result of a specific chain of events in U.S. politics, beginning with the "step by step" trajectory in the settlement negotiations, and conluding with what is known as the "Carter plan". This study attempts to clarify the Israeli stance towards the "Carter plan", and to explain its motives and dimensions, as well as the effect it had on the countries of the region, the Palestinian cause and the Arab-Israeli conflict. The Zionist leadership has tried to formulate the new plan in a way that places Israel at the heart of its strategy, so that Israel may continue to build itself as planned.
