The Mitchell Commission Report


The text of the Mitchell Commission Report (also known as the Sharm el-Sheikh Fact-Finding Committee Report) is an account of Israeli-Palestinian violence that erupted in September 2000. It was written by a five-member committee headed by former US senate majority leader George Mitchell. The stated goal of the report is to answer ‘what happened’, ‘why it happened’, and how the ‘recurrence of violence [could] be prevented.’

The report called on the Palestinians to fight terrorism, resume security cooperation with Israel and end incitement. It called on Israel to cease settlement building to re-establish confidence.
