• Sanction Israel for Illegal Settlement Building
    US taxpayers subsidize the Israeli military machine to the tune of $3+ billion per year and yet the Netanyahu government feels no compulsion to refrain from it's fast and furious annexation of land and expropriation of resources in the illegally occupied West Bank and inhumane treatment and expropriation of resources (gas) off the coast of Gaza. Israel should be held accountable. No more money while these illegal activities continue. The "security" wall is an annexation wall and should be moved to Israel's side of the border instead of snaking through the occupied territories to steal more land for the settlers.

  • Urge Washington to support human rights in Bahrain
    Bahrain's Sunni-led monarchy has cracked down severly on the mostly peaceful protests in that country. The protests have been led by the country's Shiite majority. Saudi tanks have assisted the monarchy in its brutal attacks on Bahraini citizens. President Obama has deplored precisely this kind of brutality in other countries, but he has turned a deaf ear regarding Bahrain. The US Navy's Fifth Fleet is based in Bahrain. The security of Bahrain rests on this Fifth Fleet, creating a situation in which the opinion of the United States matters in Bahrain. Yet President Obama and the American Congress continue to ignore or soft-pedal the gross human rights abuses in Bahrain. It is time for America to stand strong on our ideals of freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and the rights of a people to be heard. The United States speaks up officially in support of democratic goals in Egypt and Libya, while ignoring the police-state tactics of the monarchy in Bahrain. Please sign this petition to urge President Obama to speak out about these abuses, and to put pressure on the Bahraini monarchy to cease its persecution of those who speak for democratic ideals in Bahrain. Urge the President to use his huge influence to stop the torture, detention and other abuses in Bahrain.

  • Bring our troops home now!
    The US wars in Afghanistan and Iraq aren't making us any safer. Instead they destroy lives and incite anti-American rage. And they cost trillions of dollars that we need to educate and employ our citizens and rebuild our crumbling infrastructure.

  • Cease US pro-aggressive actions such as the war on terror, in favor of diplomacy and grant all na...
    The attacks with military drones and long distanced, technologically advanced weapons has made it an unfair playing field in the favor of us, the United States of America, and our reaction without thinking to 9/11 that led to other preemptive actions, made our future a war without any definable end, a War On Terror, that only we as citizens and politicians can end by our act of withdrawing our pro-aggressive forces abroad and better use our troops to defend our country at home and assist families in need.

  • Support the United Nations
    Funding for the United Nations is threatened by the Republican led Congress. Legislation was introduced by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen that would erode America’s leadership at the United Nations, eliminate funding, and return the U.S. to a period when it failed to meet its global commitments

  • End the 30 Billion in US Aid to Israel
    "No Taxation for Israeli Occupation." American taxpayers call for an end to the 30 billion in aid to Israel allotted for 2009-2018. We oppose the use of our tax dollars to fund an apartheid state that denies Palestinians their human and civil rights.
