Petition Text

Mr. President,

It is becoming increasingly clear from polling data and from citizen outcry throughout our country that your Middle East policy is wildly unpopular with Americans across the political spectrum and particularly among Democrats.

We have appealed to you on humanitarian grounds to support a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, but our appeals have fallen on deaf ears. You have claimed that your hands are tied, but this is not true.

You can tell Mr. Netanyahu that continued US support for Israel - both moral and financial - is conditional upon cessation of armed hostilities and return to the negotiation table with all relevant Palestinian organizations, and mediators from historically neutral countries.

Your failure to do this is likely to damage your political support to the point where it leads to the election of Donald Trump in 2024.

We, the undersigned, demand that you immediately reverse your Middle-East policy to prevent handing the presidency to Trump. Otherwise, despite your achievements, you will follow Lyndon Johnson into infamy for continuing to prosecute a war the US public does not support.

Please act at once to prevent this course of events. Your reputation has already been seriously damaged and requires immediate rehabilitation.

Why is this important?

We have created a broad movement calling for a ceasefire and negotiations in Gaza. Polling tells us we are the majority. Now our movement needs to access the levers of power to make the ceasefire and negotiations happen. The person who can give us what we demand is Mr. Netanyahu, but our most direct leverage with him is through President Biden. Therefore, please sign and pass around this petition framing our demand in terms a politician can understand, even if he is not moved by humanitarian arguments.

How it will be delivered
