To: President Donald Trump
Say Two States!
Sign our petition calling on President Trump to endorse the two-state solution.
Why is this important?
President Trump says he wants to broker the “ultimate deal,” a peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians. But since taking office in January, he and his aides have failed to offer a framework for negotiations, have failed to assert positions that are vital for securing a peace deal, such as sternly opposing settlement construction, and have refused to endorse the only viable formula for a deal: the two-state solution.
Not only has Trump failed to adopt or advance the two-state solution. He won’t even publicly say “two states.”
Successive U.S. administrations, Republican and Democratic, have recognized that the two-state solution is the only feasible way to resolve the conflict. They therefore made the two-state solution America’s official policy – a key position guiding U.S. policy in the Middle East – for over 15 years.
The two-state solution has become a matter of consensus in the region and internationally. The parties, under their own successive leaderships, have committed to this vision and negotiated to realize it. For the Trump Administration to eschew it is disastrous.
Extremists on both sides have been trying to discredit the two-state vision since it was internationally adopted. Now they have a partner in the White House.
President Trump, don’t play into the hands of the anti-peace extremists. We call on you to endorse the two-state solution. Say two states!
