A Letter from Jewish Clergy Calling on the Israeli Government to Abandon Plans for Annexing the West Bank

RELEASE DATE: June 18, 2020

This letter was written and is endorsed by the ten member groups of the Progressive Israel Network, of which T’ruah is a member. 

Dear Friends,

As rabbis, cantors, and seminary students who deeply love Israel and care about its future, we urge all members of the Jewish community to call on the Israeli government to abandon plans for annexing all or part of the West Bank as early as this summer.

We hold fast to the vision, laid out in the state’s Declaration of Independence, that Israel will be “based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel; it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex.” Annexing all or part of the West Bank would mean turning Palestinians living there into non-citizen residents of Israel, without the legal rights or voting rights of citizens.

This would be a catastrophic mistake. Unilateral annexation by Israel would:

  • Demonstrate that Israel’s current government no longer seeks a two-state solution. Annexation would leave a series of disconnected Palestinian enclaves without real independence, freedom of movement, or civil rights. It would leave Palestinians without hope of genuine statehood and self-determination.
  • Place Israel in flagrant violation of international laws and undermine Israel’s status as a democracy, with the Palestinians under annexation becoming permanent second-class inhabitants living under a different system of rights and laws than the Jewish Israelis who will enjoy the rights of full citizenship.
  • Likely lead to an end of Palestinian Authority security cooperation with Israel.
  • Further isolate Israel in the world and strengthen Israeli and Palestinian extremists.
  • Endanger Israel’s enduring peace agreements with Jordan and Egypt.
  • Profoundly weaken the bi-partisan consensus of support that Israel has enjoyed in the US for decades.

Unilateral annexation violates human rights, weakens democracy, and makes Israelis and Palestinians less secure. It gambles with long-established peace agreements in exchange for enacting a messianist and ultra-nationalist fantasy that violates Jewish values of dignity for every human being, legal equality for all people, and the commitment to pursuing peace. Such a move will also drive more and more young people in Jewish communities away from Israel, as the most visible expressions of Zionism become ever more divorced from the principles of democracy and neighborliness expressed in Israel’s Declaration of Independence.

We urge all who care about the future of Israel as a democratic state, the human rights of Israelis and Palestinians, and the safety and security of all people in the region, to lift up their voices now in opposition to unilateral annexation, and in support of the pursuit of a negotiated two-state solution that respects the legitimate national rights and aspirations of both peoples.

In hope,
