The Republican National Committee (RNC), at their winter meeting in New Orleans, unanimously adopted a resolution that apparently supports a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as stated here:
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.
Michelle Plitnick The RNC officially supports not only continued Israeli possession of all the land it currently controls, but advocates “one law for all people,” which does not exist now.
Israelis behind the Green Line live under Israeli law. So do settlers. But Palestinians in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem are subject to a conglomeration of laws based on previous Jordanian law from before 1967, Israeli emergency laws and military regulations mostly adopted after 1967, and even some measure of old Ottoman laws, these particularly applied in East Jerusalem.
One state for all, Israeli Jews and Palestinian Arabs, is now the official Republican stance. I’ll assume that committed one-staters who base their stance on Palestinian rights, rather than Israel’s “God-given privileges” are not suddenly going to support the GOP. (Palestinians also want a one-state solution, one that is entirely Judenfrei)
The full text of the resolution was adopted last week by the RNC. (See below video)
