A Wider Bridge is deeply concerned about Secretary of State Pompeo’s statement regarding West Bank Settlements. We firmly support a two-state solution that both preserves Israel’s future as a Jewish and democratic state, and affords Palestinians a viable pathway to self-determination.
We are also disappointed in recent remarks by Prime Minister Netanyahu attacking Arab-Israeli leaders in the Knesset. Supporting equality in Israel means supporting equal rights and representation in government for all minorities – including Arab Israelis. We envision a future in which we can all bring our respective identities to the table as we work together to ensure Israel lives up to its full potential, with equal representation and dignity.
