Answer:

              I support a negotiated peace settlement to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on two states living in peace and security alongside one another. As a Liberal Democrat I cannot condone continued use of military force on either side. I do not support Hamas’ rocket attacks and other bombing of Israeli civilians and hospitals. Equally, I do not support Israel’s continued policy of illegal settlement expansion. Both of these actions ultimately undermine the possibility of a two-state solution. Currently I believe that recognition of the independent State of Palestine, and confirmation of precise national borders of Israel are an essential step towards living peacefully as neighbours.
