A decisive majority of Congress Democrats signed a letter requiring the White House to reaffirm that US policy in the Middle East is based on support for the “two-state solution” between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.
One hundred and eighty-seven of the 193 Democratic House members signed the letter sent to President Donald Trump on Friday. The letter was sent on the eve of the AIPAC conference, and was signed by two Republican congressmen.
The letter was conceived by Jewish left-wing group J Street, co-sponsored by Congressmen David Price of North Carolina and Jerry Connolly of Virginia.
“We believe that the outcome of one state may destroy the Jewish and democratic character of Israel, prevent the Palestinians from realizing their legitimate aspirations, and may leave the Israelis and Palestinians entangled in an endless and unresolved conflict in future generations,” it said.
