Statement on House of Commons vote on Palestinian statehood

The Movement for Reform Judaism has released this statement following the House of Commons vote in favour of a motion “that the government should recognise the state of Palestine alongside the state of Israel as a contribution to securing a negotiated two-state solution.”

We are committed to two viable states as the only just and realistic solution to the present situation. The best possible outcome from last night’s debate would be a renewed push for a durable, negotiated, settlement. Any eventual settlement must guarantee the security and self-determination to which both Israelis and Palestinians have a right.
