Help Prevent the Next War in the Middle East

Do you feel helpless in the face of our so-called elected officials’ unwillingness to stand up to the Israeli government?

What Can We Do?
The Israeli government is not worried about the US Congress or any western government. However, they are worried about grassroots boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movements that are challenging their impunity. We can use this concern to help raise the cost of an attack on Iran, and thereby help prevent the next war in the Middle East.

By signing the Divest From War Pledge, you commit to boycotting Israel and Israeli products, and divesting from Israeli government bonds if Israel initiates a preemptive attack on Iran.

This is a global campaign, and all peace-loving people around the world are encouraged to sign this pledge.

How is this different from oAre you worried about a preemptive Israeli attack on Iran dragging the US and the ther online petitions?
Most online petitions ask an elected official, corporation, or other entity to do (or not do) something, but usually there is no added incentive, other than bad publicity. In this case a serious incentive in the form of a threat of boycott/divestment is built right into the petition. This is the kind of campaign that governments will pay attention to, but only if we get a large number of signatures!                                                      >Click here to read and sign the Divest From War pledge<
