Israelis, Palestinians present blueprint for peace

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) - Israeli and Palestinian activists have presented the most detailed vision yet of what a peace deal between the two sides could look like.

The plan includes more than 400 pages with maps, timetables for Israeli troop withdrawals and even a list of weapons a non-militarized Palestine would be barred from having.

The plan was put together over the past two years by the Geneva Initiative, a group of Israeli and Palestinian experts, ex-government officials and former negotiators.
