Talk about chutzpah! Last week House Speaker John Boehner went behind President Obama’s back to invite Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before a joint session of Congress.

Let's tell Congress members to skip the speech!

If you're from the United States, email Congress.

Everyone, sign the petition.

Unless we raise our voices now, Prime Minister Netanyahu, who continues to obstruct progress towards a just peace, will be handed a high-profile platform on March 3 to promote war — using bigoted rhetoric, deception and outright lies.

Join us in raising our voices to protest Netanyahu’s speech, not because it’s a partisan snub, nor because the date is close to the Israeli elections, but because Netanyahu is going to Washington to undermine the U.S. strategy of diplomacy with Iran.

Instead of letting diplomacy work, Netanyahu wants the U.S. to impose harsher sanctions on Iran, all but ensuring that talks collapse and increasing the risk of war. Please join RootsAction, Jewish Voice for Peace, and the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation in saying "Skip The Speech!"

If you're from the United States, email Congress.

Everyone, sign the petition.

Netanyahu will also generate hysteria about Iran and the “war on terror," as he has for years, to distract U.S voters from the dirty truth: under Netanyahu’s leadership, the Israeli government has ramped up illegal settlement building, increasing the population of Jewish settlers by over 23%, made the biggest land grab in a generation, committed countless human rights abuses and killed thousands of civilians in the West Bank and Gaza, and done everything possible to maintain the status quo of Israeli occupation and domination.
