Jumblatt urges Obama to try to end Arab-Israeli conflict

Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt  sent a cable to US president Barack Obama congratulating him   on his re-election as president of the United States, and urging him to  apply political pressure to end the Arab-Israeli conflict.

“The re-election of Obama reflects the confidence of U.S. citizens in their president and their aspiration to keep up the previously adopted polices by the U.S. administration,” a  statement from Jumblatt’s press office said.

Jumblatt reportedly expressed his hope that the U.S. administration will work to achieve peace in the Middle East and apply the two-state solution, based on the  1967 borders, to end the Arab-Israeli conflict.

“I hope the U.S will exercise the required political pressure to find a way out to the Arab-Israeli conflict based on the two-state solution,” Jumblatt said.

The PSP leader also called on the U.S. president to support the State project in Lebanon and to strengthen the Lebanese Army in order to fulfill its patriotic duties  and responsibilities.

Jumblatt called for special relations with the US

“In the midst of the historical changes taking place in Arab countries towards democratic and human rights values, this part of the world is looking for establishing special relations with the U.S.,” Jumblatt said .

Obama was re-elected last week, beating Republican challenger Mitt Romney and capping what was a fierce campaign by both candidates

    As an Israeli I join Jumblatts hope for a 2-state solution for the Arab-Israeli conflict. Elections are being held in Israel on January 22nd, I hope Labour, Merez or Atid (Future) parties, which advocate that policy,  would achieve together a high number of votes.

    the pals were offered 2 state solutions 2 times in the past. the only barrier standing today is the Plas wants to go back to Israel and not to palestine. which is funny, you get your own state but you want to go back to a diffrent one. the right of return is something the jews from arab states (600,000) have forgot about it, its time the pals will do the same and finish it.
