General statements in support of a two-state solution
US special envoy George Mitchell: "In the case of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, we believe that the two-state solution, two states living side by side in peace, is the best and the only way to resolve this conflict."
The Jewish Council for Public Affairs resolved in early 2008:: "the organized American Jewish community should affirm its support for two independent, democratic and economically viable states — the Jewish state of Israel and a state of Palestine– living side-by-side in peace and security."
Pope Benedict xvi, while touring Israel in May of 2009, called on Israel’s leadership to embrace the two-state solution for peace with the Palestinians: "I plead with all those responsible to explore every possible avenue in the search for a just resolution of the outstanding difficulties, so that both peoples may live in peace in a homeland of their own, within secure and internationally recognized borders."
America’s ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice stated in May 2009: "United States is fully and unequivocally committed to working for a two-state solution."
