Convergence

   Term initially applied by Kadima Party leader Ehud Olmert in the 2006 Knesset election (see also KNESSET [PARLIAMENT]) campaign to describe his plan, if elected prime minister, for the future of the West Bank. According to the Tokhnit HaHitkansut (Convergence Plan), most of the Israeli settlements beyond Israel's West Bank settlement fence would be evacuated or consolidated into the three large settlement blocs of Ma'aleh Adu-mim, Ariel, and Gush Etzion (see ETZION BLOC [GUSH ET-ZION]), which would be incorporated into Israel. The Olmert government later came to use the term realignment to describe the plan.
   See also Hitkansut.
