Americans for Peace Now (APN) Biography

Position:
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“Now, within a framework of security for Israel with the goal of better securing the Zionist vision of a Jewish and democratic state, it is time to extend the right of sovereignty to the Palestinian people… To end the conflict, we support the creation of a Palestinian state comprising the great majority of the West Bank and all of the Gaza Strip, consequently ending Israeli occupation of these areas. The Palestinian State must have territorial contiguity and so we reject the concept of cantonization.”
