CALL TO ACTION

U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation

Much has changed since the terrible attacks on New York and
Washington of September 11. But one thing remains the same: the Israeli occupation
of Palestine, with all its attendant injustice and its destabilizing effects on
the Middle East and the world. We must redouble our efforts for peace and
justice based on human rights for all. We believe that this is a peace worth building.

Our Principles and Purpose

  • We stand for freedom from occupation, and equal rights for all. International law guarantees these human rights, including the right to exist in peace and security.

  • We aim to change those U.S. policies that sustain Israel's 35-year occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, and deny equal rights for all.

Our Goals

  • We will inform, educate, and mobilize the public regarding the U.S. Government's current as well as potential role in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

  • We seek to change such policies as the billions of U.S. military and economic aid dollars provided despite Israel’s violations of U.S. and international law.

  • We call for the U.S. to work within the U.N. to implement a just and lasting peace.

Our Campaign

  • Our Campaign will build on existing opposition to settlements, land confiscation, house demolitions, and other violations of international law, by providing a common platform to challenge U.S. policies supporting the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

  • We include civil and human rights activists, faith-based organizations, peace activists, Arab-American organizations, Jewish groups opposing the occupation, students, and others who promote peace and justice in Israel and Palestine. We invite all who support this Call to contribute to the fulfillment of its purpose.
