Take Action on Palestine
Take action on Palestine
Let's close our eyes for a short time and imagine what happened and what's continuing to happen: Someone coming to your house, forcing you, your infants, your aging parents to leave. He prevents you from ever returning to that house. What would you do then?
We are the people of Palestine that long for freedom, justice and peace. We are a people entitled to live in dignity just like any other people exercising our inalienable and sacred right to self-determination.
Yet, Israel has imposed on us an occupation and system of apartheid aimed at preventing the prospects of any peaceful solution.
In order for freedom, justice and peace to prevail, we call upon the peoples of the World to:
First: Reject the Israeli occupation of our homeland Palestine, and the systematic denial of our internationally recognized inalienable rights. We ask you to stand up with our people in their endeavor to achieve justice and independence.
Second: Support the right of our people to have our own independent state and to live in peace, freedom, and dignity. This includes the recognition of the State of Palestine based on the international law and the UN resolutions.
You are all aware of what happened to the Palestinian people. Don’t you think it is time to end our daily suffering? Don’t you think we deserve to live in peace and raise our kids just like anyone of you? Don’t you think that we are all brothers and sisters who share basic values and work very hard to provide our families with what they deserve?
We call on you to stand with us and let your commitment for human rights, which is one of your great values and your support for the oppressed, triumph. Don’t let anyone speak on your behalf and make decisions that conquer and dominate the people who yearn for freedom and justice. We hold tight and cling to the great and noble humanity helping hands.
"Freedom means the supremacy of human rights everywhere. Our support goes to those who struggle to gain those rights or keep them. Our strength is our unity of purpose. To that high concept there can be no end save victory." (Franklin D. Roosevelt)
