Sen. Cruz: It Is Not the Place of the U.S. or UN to Impose a Solution on Israel

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz today issued the following statement regarding Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-N.Y.) and Mike Rounds’ (R-S.D.) letter to President Obama on opposing all one-sided, anti-Israel resolutions at the United Nations:

“I support the spirit of Sens. Gillibrand’s and Rounds’ letter to President Obama, which is to urge him to oppose any anti-Israel activities at the United Nations Security Council. 

“Unfortunately, the language in the opening paragraph declaring the ‘two-state solution’ as the ‘only’ resolution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians undermines this well-intentioned effort, and makes it impossible for me to sign. This matter is an internal one for Israel to decide, and it is not the place of the United States – or the United Nations – to impose a solution on a sovereign nation. 

“I join all of our colleagues in praying for peace and security for our great ally Israel.”
