To: US self-identifying Jews and their political supporters who might find that neither the mainstream Jewish organizations nor J Street nor, even, such marginal groups as JVP and Campaign to End the Occcupation offer credible plans

Israel must embrace a civil rights regime or go out of business.

Petition Text

Resolve the paradox in Israel's Basic Laws defining Israel as a "Jewish and democratic state" by resolving that racism is neither Jewish nor democratic, nor, for that matter, stable, whatever else that sacred term might mean.

Why is this important?

Israel's only stable route is in increasing global instability in the hope its legal anomalies will pass as emergency responses. There is no system of Jewish supremacy that does not carry with it a pushback or contradictory force of anti-Jewish activism. The entire matter should be considered settled--no pun intended--by the US Bill of Rights and its history to date. Merely fudging settlements or boundaries is pushing the problem into the future in larger and larger proportions. Some contradictions, such as that of racism, are constituted with all the right on one side and a vacuum on the other.
