West Bank tours plan

By Simon Rocker, May 12, 2011

Yachad, the new alternative advocacy group, is planning educational tours for youth group leaders to East Jerusalem and the West Bank as part of its programme to promote a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The group says that "time is running out" for a two-state solution, which is "threatened" by terrorist violence and "undermined" by the building of Jewish settlements.

In a manifesto released this week, it calls for "a Jewish Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and an Arab Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state".
