JCRC Urges Withdrawal or Veto of U.N. Security Council Resolution

JCRC of Greater Boston believes that, based on a review of the available draft, the resolution to be considered by the UN Security Council this afternoon presents a too broad, un-nuanced, and unproductive approach to Israel's construction and settlement beyond the Green Line.

We do not feel that this resolution - as drafted and considered in such a hasty and secretive manner - is a productive contribution to the pursuit of the negotiated two-state resolution for peace that we cherish. We urge the sponsors to withdraw the resolution, and the United States to veto it - as the Obama administration  has done in the past on similar resolutions.
