Barbra Streisand Comes Out for 2-State Solution

Barbra Streisand Supports Out for 2-State Solution

Feb. 4--The American entertainment icon, award-winning singer and actress Barbra Streisand has come out for the creation of a two-state solution and the creation of a Palestinian state.

Streisand comes from a Jewish family and describes herself as "a Jewess through and through, although I'm not religious," in a 1987 interview with Esquire magazine. Now taking to her Instagram account, Streisand has shared her support for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This envisions an independent State of Palestine alongside the State of Israel, west of the Jordan River.

She wrote: "When I first met Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres years ago, I asked him 'How can you help the Palestinians?' He replied 'By making their lives better!' We needed his advice then, and should urgently heed it now. In my humble opinion, we need a two-state solution that will hopefully  bring peace and prosperity to the region."
