Apr 30, 2014

Developments over the last week should not cause Israel and its supporters to lose sight that a negotiated two-state solution represents the best prospect for Israel’s future as a secure, Jewish and democratic state. While it is regrettable that Secretary of State John Kerry’s unprecedented effort has been suspended, in taking a break, Israel and the Palestinians must build on this recent experience to refocus their attention on how best to establish two states for two peoples, living together in peace and security.
