Support Lebanon Petition

Sun Jul 16, 2006 1:24 pm

If you support Lebanon and the Lebanese people from this onslaught of Israeli terror, please sign this petition:

Save the Lebanese Civilians Petition

To The Concerned Citizen of The World:

"Killing innocent civilians is NOT an act of self-defense. Destroying a sovereign nation is NOT a measured response."

Lebanese civilians have been under the constant attack of the state of Israel for several days. The State of Israel, in disregard to international law and the Geneva Convention, is launching a maritime and air siege targeting the entire population of the country. Innocent civilians are being collectively punished in Lebanon by the state of Israel in deliberate acts of terrorism as described in Article 33 of the Geneva Convention.

The Lebanese people feel left out by the world that is turning a blind eye on the savagery of the Israeli state. Israel does not seem to be capable of approaching any problem outside the realm of the military power bestowed on it by the government of the United States of America and other western governments.

We are writing you this letter in the hope that this massacre is immediately stopped. It is the universal duty of each individual to defend the innocents and expose the truth. The numerous civilian victims of the Israeli operations are increasing by the hour. The viciousness of the attacks has attained terrifying levels where a child has been cut in three while another was half burned.

The Israeli war machine, in its blind savagery, is destroying not only our lives but the foundations that could help the civilians survive beyond their massacre. The Israeli Defense Forces are destroying in few hours what Lebanon has spent years and billions of dollars to rebuild.

Up until now more than 100 Lebanese civilians have been killed, hundreds wounded, bridges and infrastructure destroyed, refugees are leaving Beirut in droves and worst of all the enforced siege might lead to a human catastrophe in the next 48 hours. There must be an end to this cycle of violence and continuous violation of international laws and basic ethical behavior.

Between the blindness of the international community and the deafness of the Arab one, the besieged Lebanese population has no way out.

Peace begins with justice

No thanks, but I'll be sure to write my Congressman and Senators this week when the resolutions showing support with Israel and condemning Hezbollah terrorist activities are inevitably introduced.

Quoting BA (Thread starter):

"Killing innocent civilians is NOT an act of self-defense. Destroying a sovereign nation is NOT a measured response."

Tell that to the Arab world. They should listen to their own advice.

Quoting BA (Thread starter):
The viciousness of the attacks has attained terrifying levels where a child has been cut in three while another was half burned.

And no Israeli child has EVER been killed by an Arab, God forbid!

Quoting BA (Thread starter):

Boohoo. Cry me a river. In fact, how about you sign a petition to force the Lebanese to kill Hezbollah? I'll bet the IDF would be happy to have the assistance. But, if they're not willing to do that, they're helping the enemy--and bombs away are more than justified!

Quoting BA (Thread starter):
bridges and infrastructure destroyed

That'll teach Lebanon to stop sponsoring terror... well, probably not. The past incursions haven't seemed to give a hint...

Quoting BA (Thread starter):

So the Arab world is only their for its countries in need at certain times? Like when it's politically helpful?


What an idiotic petition. Is there one to support some more cruise missiles from IAF planes? I'll sign that in a heartbeat.

Can you show me any single incident of an internet petition accomplishing anything?

A very selfish act, all violence from Mumbai to Beirut to Haifa should be condemned and a promise to follow UN resolutions should be given support.

I think I'll pass on signing any petition, although I do support Israel.

Quoting Stormbringer (Reply 5):

Other than making people who sign them feel as though they are making a contribution, I doubt they've ever done anything. No politician will ever sit there and say "holy crap" people online don't like this, I think we'll change the way we're doing things.

No one listens to the UN, it's a waste of good Manhattan real estate.

Another one supporting Israel. They've been attacked for years and have never acted strongly, and look where it's gotten them. No World Court is helping them, either. It is their first duty to protect themselves, and if that means striking against a country that knowingly and proudly harbors terrorists, so be it.

The point has been made that there is a petition available to sign.

Each new Israel/Lebanon thead is digressing into a general discussion where forum members are simply defending whichever side they are on, without specificallly discussing the point made by the thread-starter. Please keep these threads tightly on-topic.
