Petition Statement

December 24th, 2013 the Palestinian village of Susya is scheduled for demolition. The farmers whose families have lived on this land for over 150 years will lose their homes, their land and their way of life.
There are currently 1,290 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

I am asking you to sign this petition to urge President Obama, Secretary of State, John Kerry and others to do everything in their power to stop the destruction of Susya, a Palestinian village in the West Bank. Demolition orders are to be executed on December 24th, 2013.
I lived in Israel for eight years and traveled throughout the West Bank including the village of Susya many times. I have witnessed first-hand the oppressive and inhumane conditions imposed on Palestinians by Israeli military occupation. The confiscation of Palestinian lands to make way for Jewish settlements, destruction of homes, violence against men, women and children, and other human rights violations are not only against International law, but all laws of human decency.
The residents of Susya have submitted five different versions of a master plan to Israeli authorities in an attempt to remain on their ancestral lands. Every plan has been rejected for obvious political reasons.
Mr. President, on behalf of peace-loving peoples everywhere, we urge you to use all necessary means immediately to stop the demolition of yet another Palestinian village and the displacement of its residents .
