Op-Ed: 2022 United Nations Meeting; Israel Offers a Two-State Solution for Peace Again and Palestine Rejects It Again

PORTSMOUTH, OH –  Once again, Israel extended the olive branch, and once again Palestine rejected a peaceful resolution. The incident took place at the annual United Nation’s meeting in New York.  

Who is Yair Lapid? 

“With the Israeli Knesset voting to dissolve itself and head to its fifth election in just three years, the country will see Yair Lapid, who served as alternate prime minister and foreign minister in the outgoing government, become the Jewish state’s 14th prime minister,” according to a June 2022 article at AJC Global Voice.

However, Lapid is only slated to serve as prime minister until a new government is formed following elections. Will Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu, an Israeli politician who served as the ninth prime minister of Israel from 1996 to 1999 and from 2009 to 2021, return in the future to rule Israel?

Israel offers peace 

“Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid used his U.N. General Assembly address to voice his support for a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict for the first time, becoming the first Israeli prime minister to endorse such a solution since 2017,” according to The Washington Examiner.  

Watch Lapid’s UN speech.

A two-state solution has been on the table before, but so far, no cigar. Moreover, Israel is a mainstay of democracy and prosperity in a region largely devoid of it.

“Lapid has met with Jordan’s King Abdullah II and new British Prime Minister Liz Truss, among others, during his trip to New York. Truss reportedly told Lapid she is considering relocating her Israeli Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” according to a report in The Washington Examiner.

“Despite all the obstacles…a large majority of Israelis support the vision of this two-State solution. I am one of them,” Lapid said, on the sole condition that “a future Palestinian state will be a peaceful one,” and not another terror base that threatens the country’s very existence. 

Palestine rejects peace plan 

According to an AJC article on September 23, 2022, “Just a day after Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid told the United Nations he supports a two-state solution, it was regrettable that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas reacted to this courageous overture with hostile rhetoric that prevents a meaningful dialogue. President Abbas could have used his own address before the UN to express his willingness to end decades of conflict with a negotiated solution that involves give and take on both sides. He did not.”
