Now is the time to act. To unite. To make our voices heard.
Israelis, Palestinians, Jews and peace-seekers around the world are mobilizing to stop unilateral annexation.
Stopping Unilateral Annexation
Israelis and Palestinians are facing a dire threat: the Netanyahu-Gantz government plan to Unilaterally annex parts of the West Bank. Whether full or partial, Unilateral Annexation will mark a dramatic turning point for Israel’s history, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the chances for a two-state solution.
Why do we oppose Annexation?
Unilateral Annexation will decide the future for generations. If we don’t act now, our children will pay the price.
For the Future
We all know how Unilateral Annexation starts – but no one knows how it will end. Annexation is a recipe for disaster and a huge gamble on Israeli and Palestinian lives and security.
Democracy and Annexation don’t go hand in hand. If you care about democratic values, you must oppose annexation.
We believe that Israelis and Palestinians can and must live together in peace and prosperity and with mutual respect. Annexation takes us further from that vision.
Unilateral annexation will prolong Israel’s occupation over Palestinian civilians and further harm their human rights. Expulsions, land grabs, restricted freedom of movement, and denial of civil rights – these are just the tip of the iceberg. Anyone who cares about human rights must oppose annexation.
For Human Rights
The good news is we’re not alone. In fact, we’re the majority. A decisive majority of Israelis oppose unilateral annexation – only 4% of Israelis currently view annexation as an important goal, according to a June 9 poll by Channel 12 news. Another poll conducted by Commanders for Israel’s Security showed that only 25% of Israelis support annexation. People from around the world, including American leaders, diplomats, security officials, clergy, youth and more have raised their voices in opposition to the planned unilateral Annexation.
