RESOLUTION 15-05.58A

Resolution Reaffirming Support for the Two-State Solution & Supporting the President’s Actions

Whereas the California Democratic Party seeks nothing less than aggressive forward action that rapidly creates the framework for a viable Two-State solution in Israel and Palestine, wherein each party recognizes the other's right to exist and prosper and eliminates policies that denigrate or harm the Israeli and Palestinian peoples, and Whereas Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has assembled a government and pursued policies inimical to a Two-State solution, despite attempts to distance himself from statements during his re-election campaign precluding an independent Palestinian state and stoking xenophobic fears of “droves” of Arab voters “bused in by the Left,” and Whereas a lasting and just solution to the conflict in Palestine/Israel is central to long-term prospects for peace, security and economic development in the Middle East, Be it Resolved that the California Democratic Party supports the Obama Administration’s strong reiterations of established U.S. policies regarding a Two-State solution, including the halting of settlement activity beyond the 1967 borders and encourages further discussion of the status of existing settlements and “lands swaps,” and Be it further Resolved that the California Democratic Party holds all parties in the conflict to internationally recognized standards of human rights, anti-terrorism, diplomatic engagement, mutual recognition and peaceful conflict resolution that are mutual and equal.
