Guterres calls for two-state solution for Israel, Palestine

This post has been viewed 502 times.

"Today's vote was an affirmation of the more balanced platform adopted by the National Democratic Party at its July 2016 convention", said Rob Leikind, New England regional director of the American Jewish Congress, who applauded the vote by the state Democratic Party.

This has been suggested by Israeli officials in the past, and "west of the Jordan Valley" effectively means that if the Palestinians ever did manage to get independence after generations of Israeli occupation, their external borders would still be occupied in perpetuity.

"It also constitutes an outspoken challenge to the entire worldwide community, which recognized the State of Palestine on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital".

This includes the Oslo Accords, the failed peace agreement never achieved by President Clinton, Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Yasir Arafat and then again with the failure to agree to terms between Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Mahmoud Abbas. Palestinian extremists, conversely, are using the ongoing occupation to warrant their equivalent zero-sum ideology and to justify violence.

It is not a secret that in many stages following the Israeli occupation, a Palestinian state could have been established, with sovereign and clear borders.


He recalled that in 1947, the world recognized the two-state solution and called for the emergence of “independent Arab and Jewish states” on the basis of UN General Assembly resolution 181.

There has always been a vocal Israeli community which says the occupation harms Israel's claim to legitimate statehood, and damages the chances of reaching peace with the Palestinian leadership.

APN is the sister organization of Shalom Achshav, Israel's preeminent peace movement.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged to "preserve" and "strengthen" Israel's settlement enterprise during a Wednesday ceremony at the Israeli Knesset to mark the Gregorian calendar's 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War.

On 14 May 1948, the State of Israel was born, but nearly seven decades later, “the world still awaits the birth of an independent Palestinian state, ” he said, offering once again to work with all relevant stakeholders to support a genuine peace process.
