We Should ‘Build a Palestinian State’ with Our Resources Instead of ‘Peace Through Strength’ Approach

On Wednesday’s episode of CBS’ “Late Show,” Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.) responded to a question about the U.S. role in the Israel-Hamas conflict by saying, “Our foreign policy is pretty much aligned with the idea of ​​peace through strength, which means we need to have a very powerful military to intimidate other countries into doing what we say. We want to use our wealth and our resources and our means to lead diplomacy,” and that we should use our resources to “build a Palestinian state.”

Host Stephen Colbert asked, “What do you think is the role of the United States in using its power and influence to bring about this peace or to achieve a two-state solution? We’ve been working on this for many years, we’ve been involved. What do you think is our job at the end of the day, and how do we best leverage our position in the world?”

Bowman responded, “Our foreign policy is pretty much aligned with this idea of ​​peace through strength, which means we need to have a very strong military to intimidate other countries into doing what we say. I wish we could use our wealth and our resources and our means to lead diplomacy. That’s my hope. We already have the strongest military. Can we use our resources to fight climate change? Can we use our resources to make sure every child has clean water to drink? Can we use our resources, in this particular case, to actually build a Palestinian state, not just through policy but through resources?”
