STOP Bombing Muslims

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Donald Trump

Petition Statement

Since taking office, President Donald Trump has dramatically increased U.S. military force in Muslim-majority countries, killing hundreds of civilians in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan--where he dropped the "mother of all bombs."

These deadly campaigns are counterproductive, make us less safe, and will only serve to increase terrorism recruitment and fuel unnecessary hatred toward the U.S.

All people deserve to live in dignity and safety. We, the undersigned, demand an end to U.S. bombings of Muslim-majority countries!
There are currently 679 signatures. NEW goal - We need 750 signatures!

Petition Background

On Thursday, April 13, President Donald Trump authorized U.S. forces to drop the military's largest non-nuclear bomb on Afghanistan. The 21,600-pound Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB), nicknamed the "mother of all bombs" is GBU-43, which reportedly contains 11 tons of explosives. A week before, Trump killed 300 civilians in Mosul in one of the deadliest airstrikes in decades and, in March, he broke records for the number of bombs dropped on Syria.

Politicians and pundits often ask in reference to Muslims, "Why do they hate us?" implying that Islam and Muslims are inherently violent. But rather than blaming Islam for terrorism, President Trump and Congress must stop fueling hatred and helping create radical extremists by bombing Muslim-majority countries.

While Trump has escalated airstrikes in the Middle East, it is important to note that his bombing campaigns follow bipartisan policies of the two previous administrations which have targeted 7 Muslim-majority countries since 9/11.
