Republican draft platform reinstates Jerusalem as Israel’s ‘undivided’ capital
The Republican Party in the latest draft of its platform has reinstated a reference to Jerusalem as Israel’s “undivided” capital and removed a reference to “Palestine.”
The language shared with members of the Platform Committee by the Republican National Committee at an orientation on Sunday night is first reported by CNN.
The 58-page draft platform, which supports a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians, could change several times before the start of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, on July 18.
In the party’s 2012 party platform, the word “undivided” was deleted from the platform of four years earlier and the reference to Palestine was added.
