American Jewish Committee rips Bennett

The American Jewish Committee has sharply criticized Industry and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett for declaring the 'two-state solution' dead.
“Minister Naftali Bennett's remarks, rejecting outright the vision of two states for two peoples, are stunningly shortsighted,” said AJC Executive Director David Harris. "Since he is a member of the current Israeli coalition government, it is important that his view be repudiated by the country's top leaders."
“Bennett contravenes the outlook of Prime Minister Netanyahu and contradicts the vision presented earlier this month to the AJC Global Forum by Minister Tzipi Livni, chief Israeli negotiator with the Palestinians,” Harris continued. "Livni stated clearly that a negotiated two-state settlement is the only way to assure that the State of Israel will remain both Jewish and democratic. That is a view we at AJC have long supported.”
"We are under no illusion about the difficulties of achieving a two-state accord," Harris concluded. "But Bennett's alternative scenario offers only the prospect of a dead-end strategy of endless conflict and growing isolation for Israel."

Someone needs to remind the AJC that twice as many Israelis supported Bennett as supported Livni in the last elected, and that most Likud supporters (not to mention those of other, more right wing parties) likely agree with Bennett.

Why don't the members of the AJC, a.k.a. the American Jewish Freak Show, pick up roots and come live in Israel before they declare what's good for us. Personally, I believe a two state solution is long dead.

Why don't the members of the AJC, a.k.a the American Jewish Freak Show, sell their homes and move to Israel. Then they are more than welcome to declare what's good for Israel. Personally, a two state solution is long dead.

Mr Harris, the truth is sometimes a bitter pill, hard to swallow but the truth none-the-less.
