"Leasing Land in Israel Means OWNERSHIP"
Here is the reason that the LEASE is the peace plan. Please read these sites regarding land ownership....
In 1901, the Jewish National Fund was founded for the purpose of
purchasing settlement land in Israel. JNF operates under the principle
that the Land of Israel belongs to the
entire Jewish people; based on this, the Israeli Knesset later adopted a
law stating that JNF lands cannot be sold, but only leased for periods
of 49 years at a time.
These lands that were managed by the Jewish National Fund were taken
over by the Israeli Land Administration in 1960 due to mismanagement of
"Ownership" of real estate in Israel usually means leasing rights from the ILA for a period of 49 or 98 years.
