This week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is coming to Washington DC. As he makes his rounds in our nation’s capital, there is one sentence worth keeping in mind:
“The Government of Israel flatly rejects the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state west of the Jordan river.”
The meaning is simple: Likud and its political leaders are opposed to a Palestinian state.
While in Washington, Netanyahu is likely to demand once again that all Palestinian factions recognize Israel. But what will it take for his own political party to acknowledge the right of Palestinians to live free of Israeli military occupation?
For all the money that US taxpayers are required to give to Israel, isn’t it time that American voters learned about Netanyahu’ political platform?
