The US Senate will be voting on Resolution S.Res.6, introduced by Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Ben Cardin (D-MD). It reads as follows:
S.Res.6 - A resolution objecting to United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 and to all efforts that undermine direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians for a secure and peaceful settlement.

The Senate resolution, like the House resolution passed last week (H.Res. 11) is not perfect - it makes mention several times of a "two-state solution" which is anathema to Israel's security and survival. However, the Senate resolution strongly condemns the latest anti-Israel UN Security Council Resolution, states strong US support for Israel, and demands that any agreement between Israel and the "Palestinians" must be reached by bilateral negotiations.
Thus, we commend Senators Rubio and Cardin and the other Senators who support the resolution, while objecting to the resolution's call for a "two-state solution".
Please contact and thank your Senators for supporting Israel and condemning UN Resolution 2334. Let them know your objections to the resolution's call for a two-state solution.
