Sanders, Warren Back Senate Anti-Annexation Resolution


Far-left Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren were among the sponsors of a Senate resolution denouncing any move by Israel to annex the West Bank.

The resolution, which is non-binding, states, "Unilateral annexation of portions of the West Bank would jeopardize prospects for a two-state solution, harm Israel’s relationship with its Arab neighbors, threaten Israel’s Jewish and democratic identity, and undermine Israel’s security."

It added that "the policy of the United States should be to preserve conditions conducive to a negotiated two state solution."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed support for annexing Israeli West Bank settlements during the last election campaign.
