Americans for Peace Now’s President and CEO Hadar Susskind issued the following statement in support of new Two-State Solution legislation:
“Americans for Peace Now applauds the introduction of the Two-State Solution Act by Rep. Andy Levin (D-MI) and twenty-three of his House colleagues.
“Following four disastrous years of the Trump administration, in which Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts suffered heavy blows, there is no better time than the present for the United States to recommit to a two-state solution: Israel and Palestine living side by side in peace and security. This thoughtful and comprehensive legislation brings us closer to that goal. The Two-State Solution Act boldly re-defines the United States’ role as a catalyst toward peace and will discourage actions that further hinder this important objective.
“Americans for Peace Now is proud to support this legislation.”
