It’s Official: The GOP are now One-Staters

Here’s the text of the latest RNC resolution on Israel:

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the members of this body support Israel in their natural and God-given right of self-governance and self-defense upon their own lands, recognizing that Israel is neither an attacking force nor an occupier of the lands of others; and that peace can be afforded the region only through a united Israel governed under one law for all people.

This is arguably a little vague, but between the claim that Israel is not “an occupier of the lands of others” and the call for a “united Israel under one law for all people”, I really don’t think it admits of any other interpretation. The Republican Party has officially entered the one-state camp. To be sure, this isn’t really surprising — the GOP’s anti-Israel slant has been bursting through for some time now, with folks like Huckabee and Santorum explicitly joining the one-state camp. But now we have an official resolution that, in essence, calls for the dissolution of Israel as a Jewish, democratic state.

In other words, with respect to Israel, voters now have a clear choice between a party which supports the perpetuation of a Jewish, democratic state, and one that wishes to see that state abolished. Not a difficult call, in my book.

    They’re so much more clear, accurate, and honest than the other (devil’s) side.

    While I see your point, David, I would suggest that while the GOP is definitely supportive of a one-state solution, they do not envision a state for non-Jews.

  • I don’t understand this one-state nonsense. The two sides hate each other. You really want to shove them into one state?

    We should learn from Africa. The European powers crafted boundaries out of whole cloth, forcing enemy tribes into the same nation. The result? Genocide and barbarism.

    Two states is best. Then they can negotiate as equals.

    ” one that wishes to see that state abolished”

    and that would be the Dem party???

    what a joke.
