Gauche américaine: J Street est contre la demande d'adhésion palestinienne à l'ONU

Même la gauche américaine (J Street) est contre comme le prouve ce long "position paper",  soutiendra le veto américain et la position du Président Barack Obama.  Lire surtout le remarquable exposé de position de Raison Garder pour l'Europe (Une déclaration de guerre travestie en demande de reconnaissance).

Executive Summary
J Street does not support the Palestinian effort to become a member of the United Nations at this time because we do not believe that, in the current context, it will advance peace, enhance security and improve conditions on the ground. J Street therefore supports the U.S. intention to veto such an effort in the Security Council. We urge an assertive American and international diplomatic initiative that could lead the Palestinians to defer their approach to the UN by jumpstarting efforts to reach a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

J Street’s goal is the realization of a two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. J Street’s interest is not, however, simply in the creation of a second state, but in achieving a real two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict – one that is built on two states for two peoples and that leads ultimately to the end of the conflict and the end of claims.

We advocate this because we believe that this is the only way to ensure Israel’s permanent and secure future as the homeland of the Jewish people and as a democratic state. Diplomatic resolution of the Israeli-Arab conflict is not just a core Israeli interest; it is in the strategic and security interests of the United States. And, just as the Jewish people have a right to a national home of their own, so too do the Palestinian people.

As pro-Israel Americans, we evaluate any international action – including resolutions at the Security Council or the General Assembly – on the basis of whether they advance or undermine a fair and lasting two-state solution in accordance with our policy positions and whether they promote peace, enhance security, and improve conditions on the ground.
