Bill Summary

Expresses the sense of the Senate that: (1) a two-state solution is the only outcome to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict which can ensure Israel's survival as a secure, democratic homeland for the Jewish people and fulfill the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people for their own state; (2) achievement of a two-state solution that would enhance stability and security in the Middle East is a fundamental U.S. security interest; (3) while only Israel and Palestine can make the difficult choices necessary to end their conflict, the United States remains indispensable to any viable effort to achieve that goal; (4) Secretary of State John Kerry is to be commended for his efforts to advance a negotiated two-state solution; and (5) the Senate pledges its support for a sustained U.S. diplomatic initiative to help Israel and Palestine conclude an agreement to end their conflict.
