Disinvite Netanyahu from Center for American Progress

To be delivered to Neera Tanden, President of Center for American Progress

Petition Statement

We call on the leadership of the Center for American Progress to disinvite Netanyahu and stand-up for universal justice and principled anti-racism discourses . "Progressive" and Netanyahu don't belong on the same stage or share the same event. Giving a stage to a racist and an anti-progressive politician like Netanyahu undermines CAP's mission and standing in the country. We call on the Neera Tanden and CAP's leadership to stand-up to AIPAC and its right wing allies and not cave-in by extending an invite to Netanyahu.
There are currently 1,741 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Netanyahu's anti-peace rhetoric and actions going all the way back to the early 1990, his pro-settlement policies, on-going siege on Gaza and two assaults on the Strip causing the deaths of thousands and destruction of 90,000 homes, racist campaigning and targeting black African immigrants if taken all together makes the invite to address CAP the most egregious step to be undertaken by a "progressive" institution.
