'Kiss of death' to two-state solution if Jerusalem declared Israel capital: PLO envoyBy Yara Bayoumy WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A formal U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel would be the “kiss of death” to the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Palestine Liberation Organization’s chief representative in Washington said on Monday. “Should such a step be taken, it would have catastrophic consequences,” Husam Zomlot told Reuters in an interview. “That would be actually the kiss of death to the two-state solution because Jerusalem is at the very heart of the two-state solution,” Zomlot said.
