The Democratic Party on Wednesday released its draft 2020 platform which includes language that opposes an Israeli move to apply sovereignty over Judea and Samaria and supports the rights of Palestinian Arabs.

“Democrats believe a strong, secure, and democratic Israel is vital to the interests of the United States. Our commitment to Israel’s security, its qualitative military edge, its right to defend itself, and the 2016 Memorandum of Understanding is ironclad,” the draft reads.

It goes on to say that “Democrats recognize the worth of every Israeli and every Palestinian. That’s why we will work to help bring to an end a conflict that has brought so much pain to so many. We support a negotiated two-state solution that ensures Israel’s future as a Jewish and democratic state with recognized borders and upholds the right of Palestinians to live in freedom and security in a viable state of their own.

The draft document then states, “Democrats oppose any unilateral steps by either side—including annexation—that undermine prospects for two states. Democrats will continue to stand against incitement and terror. We oppose settlement expansion. We believe that while Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations, it should remain the capital of Israel, an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths.”

  1. Democratic Party’s Platform Opposes Israeli Sovereignty FAKE NEWS!!!!

    DEMOCRATS ARE COMPLETELY AGAINST ISRAEL – they are Socialists and pro-Palestinians

    • That is nonsense. The Democratic Party is opposing the fake annexations that are being proposed. A real annexation would mean that all the Arabs in the annexed areas get immediate Israeli citizenship with voting rights. I don’t see how that would be a good idea. The fake annexation will have no legal effect whatsoever.

  2. Now that most Democrats have been coronavirused, including the real running candidate, who’s left in the Democratic party?
