Statement on Senate Letter on Possible Israeli Annexation

"While this letter from 18 Senators, who represent a minority of the Democratic Caucus, was improved as it was revised, we continue to believe that, as written, it will be counterproductive in achieving its goals. By focusing only on Israeli policies and not on Palestinian impediments to peace, nor on the failure of the Palestinian leadership to accept previous Israeli offers of statehood, the text also leaves a false impression and could send a dangerously misleading signal to Israel’s enemies."
