'Don't impose diplomatic choices on Israel,' says Texas senator.
Hours after 88 senators publicized a joint letter to President Obama, urging him to continue America’s longstanding policy of vetoing anti-Israel resolutions in the United Nations Security Council, Texas Senator and 2016 GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz rejected the letter, saying its call for a two-state solution violated Israeli sovereignty.
The bipartisan letter, coauthored by Republican Mike Rounds of South Carolina and Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, emphasizes the senators’ frustration “that talks between Israelis and Palestinians remain stalled,” adding that the “only way to resolve the conflicts between the two is through direct negotiations that lead to a sustainable two-state solution with a future state of Palestine.”Read the rest of the story HERE and follow a link to a related story below:
