The author explains that policymakers are giving due care to many more things, except the Israeli occupation over Palestine because Biden as usual has made the political goals of Israel a priority over Palestinian rights. While the Israelis refuse to reach common ground about the land, the US has the ability to drop its responsibility toward the illegal occupation that it has been supporting, especially as the US was concerned about the global comments that the Palestine-Israeli conflict will always be a problem until human rights institutions take the right moves toward it. The US has been trying to convince the world that there is no other way to a peaceful resolution of Israeli occupation in Palestine except for the two-state solution. The writer explains that debates and suggestions have been going on between the Israelis and the US, but while keeping Palestine outside the picture. Since the last wave of movements by Palestinian youth, Palestinians are trying to defend their land and are arguing for a one-state solution. As Palestinian youth see that their land’s future and freedom depend on them now, and because of the support they are getting from different movements such as the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, their confidence has been raised about what they can do. The writer argues that the US government should show caring and admit to the violence happening and to stop Israel’s racism toward Palestine.  Furthermore, the US needs to stop forcing the idea that Jewish existence depends on a two-state solution, as Palestinians are not obliged to the two-state solution framework being unilaterally advanced by Israel and the US.
