Foster Statement on Escalating Violence in Israel
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL) issued the following statement regarding the escalating violence in Israel:
“The escalating violence between the Israeli and Palestinian people is heartbreaking. Enough innocent life has been lost due to neglect and the lack of the political will necessary to find a durable peace that provides an independent state for the Palestinians and lasting security for the Israelis. I call for violence on all sides to end immediately.
“The U.S. should reengage with our allies, especially those in the region, to help find a resolution that will bring an end to the violence, while laying the groundwork for a long-term, two-state solution.”
