Tell the Center for American Progress to disinvite Netanyahu

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. Sign our petition below to CAP's president telling her that Netanyahu is #NotProgressive and has no business speaking at a self-defined progressive policy institute.

Dear Neera Tanden,

Please disinvite Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from speaking at the Center for American Progress. As a self-defined progressive policy institute, CAP would be dishonoring its mission by allowing its venue to be used by Netanyahu to promote his hateful, discriminatory and racist policies toward Palestinians.

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 and blames Palestinians for the Holocaust.

Netanyahu—and Israel's apartheid rule over Palestinians—is not progressive.
