STATEMENT ON SECRETARY POMPEO’S ANNOUNCEMENT ON WEST BANK SETTLEMENTS

WASHINGTON, DC (November 19, 2019) – In response to Secretary of State Pompeo’s announcement regarding West Bank settlements, Democratic Majority for Israel released the following statement:

Democratic Majority for Israel is strongly committed to a two-state solution that gives Israelis and Palestinians peace, security and sovereignty. As both Democratic and Republican administrations have recognized for decades, a two-state solution will require “land swaps,” with precise borders negotiated between Israelis and Palestinians. U.S. policy should work to bring the parties closer to a two-state solution. Unfortunately, Secretary Pompeo’s announcement moves us farther away from it.
