Other Areas of Joint Administration
As this area of the world has changed since the late 1960s, we believe that cities such as Ariel, settlement blocs such as Gush Etzion, and large communities such as Ma’ale Adumim must be managed in ways that require mutual agreements. For example, although we believe that Ma’ale Adumim and other large communities must have access to Israel, the territories themselves need not be Israeli. And if such territories are determined to be Israeli, the access routes to those territories need not be Israeli roads. The rights of Jews in those areas and Palestinians in neighboring areas to free access and commerce are best maintained by some measure of joint administration.
The area around Ma'ale Adumim, known by the Israeli term as E-1, is particularly sensitive because a major transportation artery linking the northern and southern areas of Palestine will traverse it. Currently there is much vacant land between Ma'ale Adumim and East Jerusalem where such an artery could have ample right-of-way, and it has been apportioned to Palestine for this purpose. Israeli plans to build settlements in E-1, if implemented, would complicate matters. In the end of final status negotiations, many of those settlements may have to be abandoned.
