Graham Applauds Trump Middle East Peace Plan

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement in response to the release of the Trump Administration’s Middle East Peace Plan.

“Today marks a major and stunning breakthrough for the long-awaited hope of peace between Israel and the Palestinian people. 

“The Trump Administration has united the major political factions in Israel behind a two-state solution that guarantees security for Israel and will lead to a 1,000 percent increase in the quality of life for the Palestinian people. 

“The proposal provides Israel with necessary security guarantees and provides the Palestinian people political sovereignty and an independent Palestinian state.  I hope the Palestinians see this as a serious offer and come to the table. 

“This marks the best proposal I have seen, as it balances Israeli security with Palestinian prosperity and sovereignty.  To our Palestinian friends: do not let this historic moment pass.

“Finally, I appreciate the hard work by Jared Kushner and his team on this important, landmark effort to bring peace to the Israeli and the Palestinian people and, above all else, President Trump’s personal involvement and desire to see a breakthrough for Middle East peace.”
