Signed the “Obama: ‘Stop the Settlements’ ” petition; organized by Avaaz.org.
This petition is based on Barack Obama’s call to stop illegal Israeli settlements. President Obama is taking a bold step, and we need to do everything we can to support him. President Obama’s speech in Egypt was a stunning step toward achieving Middle East peace. His first new move: to press Israel’s right-wing government to stop their self-destructive policy of building settlements on Palestinian land. But Obama needs help from around the world to face down the powerful opposition already mobilising against him. Let’s raise a massive global chorus immediately to support Obama’s statement that the settlements in occupied territory must stop, by joining our voices to a petition based on his very own words.
