Leader of the Opposition Calls for return to two state solution for Palestine and Israel
Leader of the opposition, Moses “Shyne” Barrow is calling for a return to the two-state solution for the Israel-Hamas war. The violent deaths and attacks continue in the Middle East. Over 9,200 Palestinians in Gaza have died due to Israeli retaliatory strikes and 1,400 people have been killed in Israel. These numbers do not include the multitude of persons that have been injured and displaced. Barrow believes that the only way that the countries can live in security, peace, and harmony is for the Arab and Jewish leaders to work together.
Moses “Shyne” Barrow, Leader of the Opposition: “When the statement was released that was a few weeks ago and that was in response to a terror attack by a terrorist organization which is Hamas. Hamas should not be confused with the majority of Palestinian people. Hamas is Al-Qaeda. Hamas is ISIS. Hamas is a terrorist group whose founding principles is to exterminate the Jews and wipe Israel off the face of the map. That is who Hamas is. And on the Sabbath, on the Jewish holiday of Sinhas Torah while the Jews as any other religion, any other people were observing their culture they invaded Israel, killed about 800 people and kidnapped 200 hostages. So any statement that would be released would have to condemn such despicable acts. But in that statement we called for a return to the two-state solution. We call for a rejection of extremism on both sides. Because not because I’m a Jew means that I support extremism, any hawkish Zionist government of Israel. That is not my position. I’m a moderate. I try to remain in the center. However there is no middle ground when it comes to terrorism. You can’t humanize Hamas. Hamas is a terrorist organization. Now since then, Israel has responded. Before I get to Israel’s response, again, in the initial statement we called repeatedly for a two-state solution. We called repeatedly for Arabs and Jewish leaders to work together so that they can live in security, peace and harmony. That was the call. The call was not just focused on the terrorist attack. The call was focused on how do we move forward? We can only move forward with the Palestinians having their own state.”
Barrow added that there needs to be an end to extremism on both sides.
