.@HillaryClinton: Tell @AIPAC that Settlements are not Israel

To be delivered to Hillary Clinton, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Hillary Clinton should tell AIPAC that Israeli settlements are not Israel & that Israel should stop developing settlements on Palestinian land & should end the blockade of Gaza.
There are currently 9,277 signatures. NEW goal - We need 10,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Hillary Clinton will address the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's policy conference in Washington March 20-22. [1]

Just because Hillary is speaking at AIPAC, doesn't mean she has to pander to AIPAC. When President Obama's National Security Advisor Susan Rice spoke at AIPAC last year, she told them things that they didn't want to hear: that their demands that Iran cease all enrichment of uranium were unrealistic, and that their demands that the U.S. walk away from negotiations with Iran and increase sanctions on Iran instead were unrealistic. AIPAC didn't like it, but Susan Rice didn't let that stop her from telling the truth. [2]

J Street [3] and Americans for Peace Now [4] have opposed AIPAC's campaign to legitimize Israeli settlements in the West Bank. If J Street can do it, Hillary Clinton can do it too. Bernie Sanders has called for a "level playing field" in U.S. policy towards Israel and the Palestinians [5] and has called for Israel to "end the blockade of Gaza, and cease developing settlements on Palestinian land." [6].

Urge Hillary Clinton to tell AIPAC that settlements are not Israel by signing our petition.
