RootsAction: Ask President Obama not to give Israel weapons to start the war by itself!

Will U.S. give Israel weapons to start the war by itself?

The Israeli government did everything it could to defeat the nuclear deal with Iran and failed.

If you think it would be a mistake for the U.S. to now give Israel weapons with which it could start a war on Iran by itself, please add your voice to this urgent RootsAction petition:

No Weapons for Israel

Dear President Obama,
The United States should not reward Israel with more weapons after Israel and its lobby, AIPAC, attempted to scuttle your administration’s nuclear deal with Iran. The transfer of “massive ordnance penetrators” and other advanced weaponry increases the likelihood of a unilateral Israeli attack against Iran. And a new 10-year deal to provide Israel with up to $45 billion in more US taxpayer-funded weapons will deepen US complicity in Israel’s human rights abuses of Palestinians, in violation of the Arms Export Control and Foreign Assistance Acts. We just avoided a potential war with Iran. Do not give Israel weapons that it can use to start a war with Iran and more weapons to continue oppressing the Palestinians.

Why?

The Israeli government and many of its U.S. supporters tried everything they could to defeat President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. Fortunately, they failed and peace and diplomacy won!

But now Congress and the Obama administration plan to reward Israel by authorizing the transfer of “massive ordnance penetrators” and other advanced weaponry that it can use to attack Iran. If Israel bombs Iran, then there’s a good chance that the U.S. will be dragged into another war.

And the U.S. is prepared to sign a new 10-year deal to give Israel—one of the largest weapons exporters in the world—as much as $45 billion more in U.S. taxpayer-funded weapons. Israel routinely uses these weapons to injure and kill Palestinian civilians and destroy their homes, agriculture and infrastructure, in violation of U.S. law.

The U.S. have just avoided a potential war with Iran. Why would they now give Israel weapons it needs to start a war with Iran and more weapons to continue oppressing the Palestinians?

If Israel uses new U.S. weapons to attack Palestinian civilians, their blood will be on the hands of U.S. taxpayers.

In fact, Israel’s routine attacks on Palestinians make the transfer of U.S. weaponry to Israel illegal under U.S. law.

The logical conclusion is: No Weapons for Israel!

Thank you for signing the petition launched by RootsAction
