Two state solution could be in tatters under Trump

by Steve Beasant on 6 December, 2017

Responding to news that Donald Trump has recognised Jerusalem as Israel’s capital Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran, who is the only UK MP with Palestinian background, said:

“The Prime Minister must use what remains of the special relationship to urge President Trump to reconsider his decision.

“There is now a high probability that the two state solution will be in tatters, and yet another round of violence in the region can be expected.

“Trump risks bolstering support for extremists, recklessly increasing the likelihood of an upsurge in potential new attacks in the west.”
