Unprecedented Two States Bill to be introduced in Knesset tomorrow
OneVoice Movement instrumental in Bill's introduction
TEL AVIV, Isreal, July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The OneVoice Movement (OVM) is proud to announce that the "Law for Two States," created in partnership between OVM and Secretary General of the Labor Party and Caucus for Ending the Israeli-Arab Conflict Chair, Hilik Bar, will be introduced in Knesset on July 17, 2013.
If adopted by a majority of the Knesset, the bill would, for the first time in Israel's history, enshrine in Israeli law that it is Israel's policy to pursue a two-state solution and represent the true will of Israelis toward peace with their Palestinian neighbors. Passage of the law would signal to the international community that Israel is committed to a two-state solution.
In a press release issued today, MK Bar cited OVM as a partner in the Bill's formulation.
OVM mobilized 500 Israelis for the launch of the Caucus for Ending the Israeli-Arab Conflict back on May 20.
OVM will continue to work in cooperation with the general public and Knesset members from all parties supporting the two-state solution to enlist their support for the Bill.
OVM is an international grassroots movement that aims to amplify the voice of Israeli and Palestinian moderates, empowering them to demand a two-state solution. The movement educates and trains Israeli and Palestinian youth in leadership skills, non-violent activism, and democratic principles.
