Sign the Petition

White House Petition

If you believe that Israel should abide by international law in regard to its illegal settlements in the Occupied Territories, and you think that the US should suspend its economic and military aid to Israel until that happens, then feel free to sign the White House petition from the link above.

A few years ago, Netanyahu visited Obama and publicly dismissed the calls to stop the expansion of settlements. What is insanely odd about this event is that he was the first prime minister of Israel who defied an American president asking the Israelis to abide by their own signed accords, and the Israeli counterpart did not pay lip-service to the request. Normally, the PM's of Israel will say of course, and the Palestinians are no partner for peace, but at least they would pay formal public lip-service to the announcement.

Not Netanyahu, no. The man who said, on Sept. 13, 2001, two days after 9-11, that the attacks were "good for Israel", simply went to address US Congress and said repeatedly that the 1967 borders were "indefensible" and that Jerusalem was the eternal capital of Israel.

Never mind that all past negotiations were based on 1967 borders, and the original partition listed Jerusalem as an international city belonging to neither Israel nor Palestine.

How did the US Congress react to a visiting PM of a foreign nation that has conducted the most aggressive espionage campaign against the US in the world? By giving this war-mongering war criminal 31 standing ovations!!!!!  31 !!!!  He spit in the eye of an US President and received 31 standing ovations. Truly surreal.

Recently, the Palestinians won Observer Status at the UN. How ironic that is, as the original partition created 2 nations. But after Israeli terror which drove 750,000 Palestinians from their homeland, and years of land expropriation, and decades of political servitude, now the world is discussing a future state for the Palestinians.

Their state was supposed to be created in equal rights as Israel in 1948.  But Israel keeps taking more Palestinian land. There can be no peace with settlements. There can be no peace without justice.

Please sign the petition.
