The Center for American Progress has invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak on Tuesday, November 10, following heavy pressure from the Israeli Embassy and AIPAC.
Click here to sign our petition to CAP's president telling her that Netanyahu is #NotProgressive and has no business speaking at a self-defined progressive policy institute.
RootsAction will work with the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation and a number of other groups to deliver petitions from each to CAP.
Netanyahu's attack last year on Gaza killed more than 500 Palestinian children. He has stated that Israel will retain control of Palestinian territory for the foreseeable future without giving Palestinians any rights. He opposes Palestinian statehood.
Netanyahu and Israel's apartheid rule over Palestinians are anything but progressive.
