Israel Policy Forum is heartened that President Trump this morning publicly acknowledged, for the first time, that the two-state formula is the best way to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and represents his preferred approach. Nonetheless, these words will remain hollow unless and until they are linked to actions that demonstrate that the U.S. is indeed serious about shepherding a process that will lead to a two-state outcome. Rather than place this outcome further out of reach by behaving like a clearly biased actor, placing security cooperation between Israel and the Palestinians at risk, exacerbating socioeconomic problems in the West Bank and Gaza, and strangling civil society groups dedicated to reconciliation, the Trump administration should reverse course and take action designed to safeguard Israel’s security and provide the Palestinians with a viable political horizon. Only by doing so will President Trump’s preferred vision of two states ever be realized.
