The Palestine Chronicle reports:
A number of right-wing Israeli politicians wrote to members of the US Congress on Monday telling them their support for a two-state solution in Israel and Palestine was “far more dangerous” than BDS.
The Congress last month voted overwhelmingly in favor of a non-binding resolution to condemn the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
The nonviolent BDS movement seeks to end Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and push Israel to adhere to international law and human rights by pressuring corporations, artists and academic institutions to sever ties with Israel.
Just 17 lawmakers voted against the bipartisan bill, which also offered support for a “negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict resulting in two states – a democratic Jewish State of Israel, and a viable, democratic Palestinian state”.
