Israeli Satesman. A leading moderate, he is best remembered for the "Allon Plan," which called for Israeli withdrawal from heavily populated West Bank territory while keeping areas where few Arabs settled. It was never accepted by Jordan, nor by hard-line Israelis. As Foriegn Minister from 1974 to 1977, he played a key role in negotiating the interim agreement with Egypt that paved the way for the 1979 peace treaty. He was a native-born Israeli, a hero of the freedom-fighting Haganah and a General in the 1948 Israeli War. He had been out of the government since the Labor Party was defeated in 1977.
