There can be no two-state solution without two states. The current Israeli government has made it clear that the status quo, with progressive incorporation of occupied territory, similar to the "two-State" solution imposed on native-Americans in the USA, meets their current objectives. Yet we embrace without reservation any action taken by the current Israeli government, vetoing any UN resolution that does not meet current Israel goals and we directly or indirectly fund illegal settlements and the collective punishment of the Palestinian people. We spend billion of dollars a year, including funds for armaments.

As a government and as a people, we have a responsibility to to uphold the highest moral and democratic values. Therefore, our elected representatives should: 

Pass legislation that 1) Makes US financial aid contingent on complete discontinuation of settlement expansion (including East Jerusalem). 2). Eliminates military aid and weapons sales used to strike non-military targets: families, schools, medical facilities, civilian infrastructure (water supply, electricity, roads) - define non-military the same way you would if an Israeli equivalent was targeted. 3) Puts pressure on Israel to end the occupation, including the seize of Gaza. 4) Supports the First Amendment right to boycott entities that facilitate, or engage in activities that are apartheid in nature. 

If we support a two-State solution, we must recognize the State of Palestine.
