Twenty-one Knesset Members addressed an unusual letter to U.S. Congress and AIPAC lobby members, expressing concern and criticism for approving the anti-BDS resolution in the U.S. Congress after introducing clauses supporting the establishment of a Palestinian state.
The letter was authored by Samaria Council head Yossi Dagan: “We would like to make it clear that the recent resolution of the Congress against BDS (Resolution 246) is a grave mistake because it also expresses support for the so-called ‘two-state solution’, establishing a ‘Palestinian state’ at the heart of the tiny Land of Israel.”
The Ministers of Knesset and Dagan further emphasized, “We want to make it clear that establishing a Palestinian state is much more dangerous to Israel than BDS. A demand for establishing a Palestinian state is contrary to the U.S. position, contrary to the position of the Israeli government, and contrary to the position of the majority of the public in Israel. And all because it is both unjust and endangers the security of the State of Israel.”
