Tell CAP to disinvite Netanyahu
The Center for American Progress, which exposed the Zionist connection to the spread of Islamophobia in the United States in its report, “Fear Inc.,” has caved to intense pressure and invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak on Nov. 10.
Netanyahu's anti-peace rhetoric and actions go all the way back to the early 1990S, when he first made known his pro-settlement policies. Now, after being elected to his fourth term as prime minister, we’ve seen the devastation to Palestinians, such as the on-going siege on Gaza and two assaults on the Strip causing the deaths of thousands, the destruction of tens of thousands of homes there, the West Bank and East Jerusalem, racist campaigning and the targeting of black African immigrants. In light of these things, the invitation to address CAP is beyond comprehension and the most egregious step that could be taken by a "progressive" institution.
Please let Center for American Progress know its invitation to Netanyahu is unacceptable by signing our petition.

CAP bills itself as working for the “greater good” by promoting peace and economic opportunity.
