No War on Iran

Original petition at: http://warisacrime.org/petition/61374

Today antiwar.com reports "Netanyahu Moves Closer to Iran Attack," and Haaretz reports "Netanyahu is preparing Israeli public opinion for a war on Iran," and Obama says "Window for diplomatic solution to Iran nuclear standoff is 'shrinking.'"

Clearly this is an urgent situation -- a loud and clear rejection of war from the Left Forum would be an important message globally and would help mobilize opposition to war in the US.

So please sign this NO WAR ON IRAN statement and circulate at the Left Forum, especially at the panels you're speaking at.

NO WAR ON IRAN!
The U.S. and Israel are openly threatening war on Iran. These nuclear-armed powers state "all options are on the table" to stop the Iranian nuclear threat. In fact, Iran has no nuclear weapons, and US intelligence agencies state there's no evidence Iran has a nuclear weapons program. Meanwhile, the U.S., the EU, and Israel are already waging a covert war on Iran through punishing sanctions which impoverish ordinary Iranians, secret operations, military threats, assassinations, and drone overflights.
Even if Iran possessed nuclear weapons, a U.S.-Israeli attack would constitute illegal, unjust, and immoral aggression. Such a war would not rid the Middle East of nuclear weapons. Such a war would not end oppression or liberate the Iranian people. And the toll in Iran and beyond would likely be enormous – the Union of Concerned Scientists warns a “bunker-buster” bomb dropped on an Iranian reactor “would create massive clouds of radioactive fallout that could spread far” and “the number of casualties could range up to more than a hundred thousand.”
So we demand: End these threats! Lift economic sanctions! No U.S. or Israeli attack on Iran!

Why is this important?
