In Just 1 Week 5000 Sign Petition to Simon Cowell
We hope you’re proud of yourself, because we certainly are! In just a week, 5000 of you put your name to the call to Simon Cowell to rescind his $250,000 donation to Haim Saban’s “Friends of the IDF”. We ask our members to continue signing the petition and spreading the word on all your social networks. If you tell at least one friend, by the end of next week we’ll be 10,000!
Every year, Saban raises $20 million annually for Israel's army, through his "Friends of the IDF" gala. The organization employs high ranking Israeli military personnel in reserves, such as National Director and CEO, Maj. Gen. Yitzhak (Jerry) Gershon. The annual gala hosts suspected criminals of war such as former IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, who presided over the 2008-2009 onslaught on Gaza, which took the lives of over 1400 Palestinians and destroyed the besieged strip's civilian infrastructure.
We believe Cowell can easily find better ways of using the money to make our world a better place, and we ask that he rescind his shameful donation to an army that occupies its days destroying homes, arresting and torturing both adults and children, and impeding the freedom of movement of the the indigenous people of Palestine.
If you haven’t yet, please sign the petition and share it on Facebook and Twitter!
