Likud MK Gilad Erdan on Thursday disassociated himself from an organization which is promoting a peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians on the basis of a two-state solution along the 1967 lines.
"You continue to use my name as a member of the organization even though I have not taken any part in the activities of the organization for years and do not identify with an organization that promotes positions which I believe will lead to the end of the State of Israel and which are opposed to my basic moral values," Erdan wrote in a letter to the OneVoice organization.
Erdan, who is listed on the nonpartisan group's Web site as a member of its honorary board of advisors, said that the organization is misleading people to believe it has support across the political spectrum which, he said, is in a fact a lie.
The group, which has amassed more than half a million signatures of both Israelis and Palestinians on a peace petition, will be holding simultaneous rallies in both Tel Aviv and the West Bank city of Jericho next week that will be broadcast around the world in an effort to garner support for the two-state solution.
