Sign Amnesty Int’l Petition to “Urge U.S. Government to stop arming Israel”

Sign this Amnesty International petition to urge the US government to stop providing lethal weapons and other support to Israel as it carries out yet another massacre in Palestine.  Providing such support to Israel, as Amnesty has noted, is illegal under US and international law because Israel is a consistent violator of human rights.

Amnesty International:

Urge the US government to stop arming Israel. 

Amnesty International is calling for a UN-imposed comprehensive arms embargo on Israel, Hamas and Palestinian armed groups.

The U.S. is by far the largest exporter of military, security and policing equipment to Israel. The U.S. gives over $3 billion in annual “Foreign Military Financing” to Israel alone. As long as there is a substantial risk these arms will be used to commit the violations we’re seeing now, all arms supplies to Israel must stop. The same is true for those supplying Hamas and other Palestinian armed groups.

The U.S. government needs to do its part and stop giving munitions, weapons, crowd control devices, and military training to Israel.

Leading scholar on the conflict Dr. Norman Finkelstein has also called for comprehensive, UN-imposed arms embargoes on Israel and Palestine.

Help stop Israel’s terrorism and other crimes by pressuring the US government to stop making them possible by illegally arming Israel.

Sign the petition. 

In addition, here are 9 brands you can boycott to pressure Israel to stop the massacre and accept international law on its illegal colonization, occupation and blockade of Palestine.
