Sen. Cruz: America Should Not Dictate Two-State Solution to Israel

By    |   Sunday, 29 March 2015 11:39 AM EDT

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz said the United States should not be attempting to tell Israel how to negotiate peace with the Palestinians, and he wouldn't do so if elected president.

"Israel is a sovereign nation, and I trust the leaders of Israel to determine whether they want to adopt a one-state solution or a two-state solution," Cruz said in an interview broadcast Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."

The Obama administration has "demonstrated an arrogance that America's going to dictate the terms of security in Israel. It's not our place to do it," Cruz said.

He said he would favor facilitating discussions and providing a neutral forum to bring both sides together.

"It shouldn't be America saying here's how you should resolve this in Israel," he said.

Cruz, who announced his candidacy for the GOP nomination for president on Monday, said that as long as the Palestinian Authority has a unity government with the terror group Hamas, he wouldn't push Israel into a peace deal.
