BAY AREA PRO-ISRAEL LEADERSHIP AND ORGANIZATIONS : WE REPUDIATE BLACK LIVES MATTER'S FALSE STATEMENTS ON ISRAEL
This petition is now closed.
Pro-Israel organizations and leadership who have not yet done so must make their voices heard in unequivocally rejecting Black Lives Matter's false and offensive references to Israel as an "apartheid" state that commits genocide against the Palestinians.
To BAY AREA PRO-ISRAEL LEADERSHIP AND ORGANIZATIONS:
Whereas we remain committed to racial justice and the dignity of all peoples, and
Whereas we will continue to fight all forms of bigotry and racism in the United States, and
Whereas we commit ourselves to work in partnership with others to foster better communication with police departments and their local communities, and
Whereas Israel is a vibrant democracy that has continually shown its commitment to finding a peaceful solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, and
Whereas the Palestinian population in the West Bank and Gaza has significantly increased since 1967 and seen major advances in such areas as health care and education,
We condemn those parts of the Black Lives Matter platform that incorrectly describe Israel as an "apartheid" state and its actions towards the Palestinian people as genocidal and we protest conjoining the fight for racial justice with demonization of the State of Israel.
We call upon all Pro-Israel organizations and leadership who have not yet done so to unequivocally repudiate Black Lives Matter's false, offensive, biased and unjust references to Israel.
