(WASHINGTON, D.C.)-- Congressman Jamie Raskin (MD-08) joined Reps. Andy Levin (MI-09) and Alan Lowenthal (CA-47) and more than 100 House Democrats in writing to President Trump to express disapproval of his deeply flawed proposal for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
The Members wrote: “A U.S. proposal that promotes unilateral annexation and jettisons a real two-state solution is bad for Israel, for the shared values that have historically undergirded the U.S.-Israel relationship, and for the bipartisan consensus in the U.S. on the importance of that relationship, which Israel has long understood to be a crucial strategic asset.”
