IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

January 5, 2017

Mr. King of Iowa submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs


RESOLUTION

Rejecting the “two-state solution” as the United States' diplomatic policy objective and calls for the Administration to advocate for a new approach that prioritizes the State of Israel's sovereignty, security, and borders.

    Whereas the State of Israel is the modern re-establishment of the sovereign nation state of the Jewish people in their ancestral homeland;

    Whereas the State of Israel is the only consistent and reliable beacon of freedom and democracy in the Middle East;

    Whereas the State of Israel was founded in 1948 and its legitimacy is inviolable, and is in no way contingent on the resolution of any regional conflict;

    Whereas Judea and Samaria is the heartland of the Biblical holy land, the cradle of Jewish civilization, and Israel’s claim to this internationally disputed territory is right and just;

    Whereas the State of Israel is a crucial strategic ally of the United States in the region and in the larger war against the threats from radical Islam;

    Whereas the State of Israel is under constant threat of belligerence from the threat of diplomatic anti-Semitism, and violent attack from terrorism, and military threat by radical Islamic forces and governments, like the Islamic Republic of Iran;

    Whereas the potential for a failed Palestinian Arab state in Judea and Samaria remains a clear and present danger to the people of Israel; and

    Whereas the Palestinian Authority does not meet the criteria for a viable and functioning government with all the authority and responsibilities thereof: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives rejects the “two-state solution” as the United States diplomatic policy objective and calls for the Administration to advocate for a new approach that prioritizes the State of Israel’s sovereignty, security, and borders.
