The Camp David and Taba Proposals (2000-1)

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat met at Camp David to continue their negotiations on the Middle East peace process. US President Bill Clinton also participated. In the course of the summit, Israel showed a willingness to make far-reaching concessions, including withdrawing from almost all occupied territory, partitioning Jerusalem and ceding Israeli land to the new Palestinian state. The summit ended on July 25, without an agreement being reached. Israel offered even more far-reaching territorial concessions at Taba the following year, but these were likewise rejected by the Palestinian leadership.
