Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) President Morton A. Klein released a statement supporting the pending House Resolution 27, which rejects a so-called "two-state solution" in Israel.

House Resolution 27 calls for a new approach, one that places more of a focus on Israel’s “sovereignty, security, and borders.”

A two-state solution, which addresses the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, seeks to create “two states for two peoples,” according to The New York Times.

This would ultimately allow Israel to maintain a country that would be majority Jewish and democratic while enabling Palestine to establish a separate state, also referred to as a PA State.

A two-state solution has appeared to receive the support of the United States, the United Nations, the Palestinian Authority and Israel. However, H. Res. 27, which was introduced by Congressman Steve King, rejects the notion.

The pending H. Res. 27 suggests that a PA State would do more harm than good, implying that a two-state solution would endanger the state of Israel.

H. Res. 27 suggests that a two-state solution is nothing more than a “euphemism” for developing a “Hamas-Iran-Fatah-Palestinian-Arab terrorist state,” which could bring attacks upon major cities in Israel, Klein's statement on the ZOA website said.

“A Palestinian-Arab state is certain to be run by Hamas, Iran and other terrorist groups,” Res. 27 states. “There is virtually no prospect that a Palestinian-Arab Hamas state would be demilitarized, democratic or peaceful in the foreseeable future.”

Congressman King’s pending resolution also draws similarities to the pro-Israel 2016 Republican platform, which received support from supporters of President-elect Donald Trump, ZOA.org noted.

The 2016 Republican platform has no mention of a two-state solution, but instead states the following: “We recognize Jerusalem as the eternal and invisible capital of the Jewish state…We reject the false notion that Israel is an occupier…We oppose any measures intended to impose an agreement or to dictate borders or other terms,” ZOA.org noted.

The ZOA’s support of H. Res. 27 comes weeks after Secretary of State John Kerry said the so-called two-state solution was “the only way to achieve a just and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians,” according to The New York Times.

At the time, Kerry also warned that the solution was on the brink of a possible collapse after being a focal point for peace efforts for decades.
