West Palm Beach, FL – Today, Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-21) issued the following statement after the relocation of the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem:

 

“Opening the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people and the State of Israel, symbolizes the enduring friendship between our nations. While I join Americans and Israelis in celebrating, I remain disappointed by the absence of a serious commitment to the two-state solution. Divorced from a broader peace process, relocation risks more violence between Israelis and Palestinians. I urge the Administration to put forward a plan with the goal of two states for two peoples, living side by side in peace, security and mutual recognition.”
