The US House of Representatives passed a resolution on January 5 objecting to the recently passed UN Security Council Resolution 2334, as an obstacle to Israeli-Palestinian peace (342-80 with 4 voting present).
AFSI applauds the House for passing this resolution, and thank all its cosponsors. However, we have major concerns with the resolution as currently written, as unfortunately, it includes four separate calls for a Palestinian state:
...the United States has long supported a...two-state solution...
...Whereas since 1993, the United States has facilitated...a two-state solution...
...Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That-
(1) it is the sense of the House of Representatives that-
...a durable and sustainable peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians will come only through...a demilitarized Palestinian state...
(2) the House of Representatives...calls for United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 to be...altered so that-
...(B) it allows all final status issues toward a two-state solution to be resolved
Although the sentiment of the House resolution is pro-Israel, a truly pro-Israel document should call for security and peace, not a "Palestinian" state!
Please thank your Representatives for sponsoring and passing this resolution. However, remind them that a "two-state solution" is a danger to Israel's security and survival, and would strip her of land in Judea and Samaria that is the cradle of Jewish civilization, and vital for her well-being.
