A look at initiatives for Middle East peace between Israel and the Palestinians, dating to after the 1967 Mideast war:

--Nov. 22, 1967: U.N. Security Council Resolution 242 calls for an Israeli withdrawal from captured territories, establishing "secure and recognized boundaries" in the region and a just solution of the refugee problem.

--Sept. 5-17, 1978: Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin sign agreements at Camp David with President Carter. Under the first, Israel returns the Sinai, occupied in 1967, for peace. Talks fail on the second agreement for an elected authority replacing Israel's military governments in the West Bank and Gaza.

--Sept. 1, 1982: After Israel-PLO fighting in Lebanon, President Reagan proposes putting the West Bank and Gaza under Palestinian control and linking them to Jordan. Israel's Cabinet rejects the proposal.

--March 4, 1988: During the Palestinian uprising, Secretary of State George Shultz proposes talks involving Israel, Jordan, Syria and Palestinian Arabs -- but not the PLO -- on a three-year self-rule program for Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The plan is not implemented.

--1991: Israel and Arab nations convene in Madrid, Spain, for conference also sponsored by Russia. Israel and Jordan sign treaty, while Israel and the Palestinians ultimately reach interim accord in 1993 in secret talks.

--Sept. 13, 1993: Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and PLO leader Yasser Arafat witness signing of interim accords at White House. Israel and the PLO recognize each other, with the plan foreseeing autonomy in West Bank and Gaza for five years, pending final deal.

--July 11-25, 2000: President Clinton convenes Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak at Camp David after deadline for interim accords expires. Israel offers a Palestinian state in Gaza and most of West Bank, with Jerusalem foothold, but disagreements remain. Fighting erupts two months later and effort eventually collapses.

--March 2002: Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah offers Israel normal relations with Arabs if it fully withdraws from lands captured in 1967. Arab League summit approves the plan with other points, including solving the refugee problem.
