Press Release

WASHINGTON – Representatives Brad Schneider (D, IL-10), Lee Zeldin (R, NY-01), Jerry Nadler (D, NY-10) and Ann Wagner (R, MO-02) introduced a bipartisan resolution opposing efforts to delegitimize the state of Israel and the Global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement targeting Israel.

The four members issued the following joint statement on the resolution:

“A two-state solution remains the best way to justly resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and ensure a future for two peoples living side-by-side in peace, security and prosperity. By denying the Jewish claim to a homeland, the BDS Movement is fundamentally incompatible with a two-state solution and pushes the cause of peace for both Israel and the Palestinians further out of reach. This resolution makes clear that Congress remains committed to a two-state solution and opposes zero-sum efforts to delegitimize the state of Israel.”
