I am urging your favorable vote on HRes 326 which supports a two state solution. While the resolution has no binding effect on the path forward, I feel that it strongly sets the table in making our feelings firmly known to both Israelis and Palestinians, that our resolve is not unlimited, and that continued West Bank annexations and settlement building to please a certain faction in Israel will only prolong the violence and human suffering that we have witnessed and unsuccessfully intervened in for decades. This is unacceptable. In short, I believe that we as a nation must place ourselves on record as being on the right side toward preventing rather than increasing conflict. Your favorable vote on HRes 326, supporting a two state solution, will ensure this.
