Now is the time for all of us, Diaspora Jews and Israelis, to raise our voices –
NIF CEO: This is an “unbalanced presidential edict disguised as a ‘peace plan.’”
Responding to the news that the Trump Plan enables, encourages, and facilitates annexation in the West Bank that hands Israel’s future to the radical settler right, NIF CEO Adam Ognall released the following statement:
“Most Israelis and the vast majority of diaspora Jews want to see a democratic, equal, and just Israel. Today, the Trump Administration is offering Israeli officials and the radical settler right a free pass to march in the opposite direction: toward a future of unending injustice and inequality.
This plan threatens to make the occupation permanent. If it becomes reality, there will be no two-state solution. This will cripple Israeli democracy by putting Israel in permanent control over the lives of millions of Palestinians who will have no right to vote for their own future. This is not the vision of Israel’s founders. It is not the vision of those of us who love and care about the state of Israel.
The choice that has been available to Israel since 1967 remains clear: Israelis must choose between Israel’s Jewish character, its democracy, and its control over the Palestinian territories. Israel can choose two, but not all three. No unbalanced presidential edict disguised as a ‘peace plan’ will obscure this choice and no Israeli government will escape it.”
Talia Sasson Chair of the International Council of the New Israel Fund talks about what is annexation:
The work of the New Israel Fund and our partners on the ground in standing up for human rights, championing a progressive vision of peace and speaking up for democratic values will be critical.
