Hold Israel Accountable!
After nearly two months of a brutal attack, we have word of a ceasefire. We are happy Israel's assault on Gaza will stop.But we must not forget the seige and the occupation continue!
The American Muslims for Palestine, together with the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, Code Pink: Women for Peace, and our friends at Roots Action are launching a nationwide petition drive, calling for an end to US aid to Israel, an end to US arms to Israeland to bring Israel before the International Criminal Court.
Sign the petition today and forward widely to your networks!
Here's why we need your help:
After nearly two months of Israel's brutal assault, the devastation is staggering. More than 2,100 Palestinians killed, at least 80 percent civilians. Nearly 500 children massacred. More than 17,000homes destroyed or damaged. At least 65 mosques - some of them hundreds of years old - destroyed or damaged. More than one-fourth of Gaza’s population, most of whom are refugees ethnically cleansed from their homes by Israel in 1948, turned into internally displaced persons.
How has the United States responded to these horrors? Secretary of State John Kerry called Israel’s actions “appropriate and legitimate.” Congress voted to send more money for weapons to Israel and passed resolutions backing it. And the Obama administration delivered more jet fuel, more artillery and more grenade rounds.
Enough is enough. We need to send one coordinated message to the White House in massive numbers: Hold Israel Accountable.
Help us generate 25,000 signatures calling on the Obama administration to end military aid and weapons transfers to Israel. To stop blocking international efforts to hold Israel accountable for its war crimes. To end Israel’s blockade, its military occupation, and its apartheid policies toward Palestinians.
Please take a minute right now to sign this petition.
Help us reach our goal of 25,000 signatures so that we can deliver this message loudly and clearly…
