The Allon Plan was the unoffical Israeli policy developed after the Six Day War concerning Jewish settlements in the newly conquered territories on the West Bank of the Jordan River. Named after it's champion Labor Minister (and later Foreign Minister) Yigal Allon.

Allon felt the settlements were necessary to protect Jerusalem. He thought that with Jewish settlement, the Palestinians could be better contained, while diplomats worked on setting up a semi-automous state for the Palestinians in the area. This unofficial policy would continue until the Rabin-Arafat peace talks in 1993.
