Supporting the U.S.-Israel Relationship

We support a robust leadership role for the United States in the Middle East. The U.S. and Israel maintain a strong and unbreakable bond in view of the two countries’ shared security interests and common values. We believe in a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Israelis deserve to live in safety and security, free from terror and incitement, in a state that is recognized by Palestinians and its Arab neighbors. Palestinians should be permitted to realize their national aspirations in an independent, demilitarized state. We recognize that Israel’s capital is Jerusalem, and with the U.S. Embassy now located in Jerusalem, it is essential that Jerusalem remain open to people of all faiths and backgrounds. Even as it acts as a mediator in the Middle East, the United States must vigorously oppose the global Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement and other international efforts to delegitimize the state of Israel. America should continue its security aid to Israel to ensure the Jewish state maintains its qualitative military edge and ability to defend itself.
