There is very small window of opportunity left to stop the nationalist momentum and create the conditions for a regional negotiation that has some chance of success. It will take a major effort to alert the Israeli public that unless they act quickly the two-state solution will be off the table, even though most of them say they want it. And world Jewry, particularly in the United States, must join in that effort.

This week in Israel began amid controversy over the nation-state bill. The bill, which seeks to define Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people, has many law makers worried that it would lay the legal groundwork for Israel’s Jewish identity to supersede Israel’s democratic identity, and lead to discrimination against Israel’s minority populations. Also on Sunday, an internal European Union document was leaked which suggested imposing sanctions on Israel in the event Israel takes action in the West Bank that would make the two-state solution impossible. On Tuesday, five Israelis were killed in Jerusalem by two Palestinian terrorists in an attack on a synagogue. This was the deadliest attack on Israeli civilians since 2008. IPF strongly condemned this horrific act and will continue to support diplomatic initiatives that work to prevent terrorism and preserve the opportunity for two states.

At this dark time, it is imperative that those who work to seek a secure future for Israel as the democratic nation-state of the Jewish people not lose hope. World leaders must condemn this brutal act, and call on others to forcefully condemn this despicable act of terrorism as well.
