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

“The Reform Jewish Movement supports a two-state solution to the current conflict as the surest way to guarantee both the long-term security of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state and the rights of the Palestinians.”
