Supporting the two-state solution doesn't have to cost US Jews their relationship with Israel, Ilhan Omar wrote on Twitter, in reference to a Haaretz article about the two-state solution.
The article discussed the split in opinion between American and Israeli Jews when it comes to supporting the two-state solution. American Jews generally support the two-state solution, while Israeli Jews generally do not, according to the article.


"Being against obsessive policies is a morality issue," Omar wrote. "It's time for people to show they have moral courage to stand up and say not under our watch."
In an interview with Channel 12 on Saturday night, Netanyahu vowed to annex territories in settlements and evacuate the illegal West Bank herding village of Khan Al-Ahmar, if he wins another term in Tuesday's elections.
