Please support the Petition "Stand for Israel, Stand for Reason"

Petition “Stand for Israel, Stand for Reason” was launched in the beginning of May by an Italian politician, journalist and author Fiamma Nirenstein and her friends – as an answer to the anti-Israel Manifesto of a number of French Jews-intellectuals – JCall “European Jewish Call for Reason” .

In this Manifesto “reasonable” French Jews insist that the only way to Peace for Israel is to stop building of settlements, to give to Palestinians all “occupied territories”, the partition of Jerusalem, and they say that the Government of Netanyahu is the main threat to the existence of Israel. This Manifesto was translated to European languages, on May 3 it was officially presented at the Session of European Parliament. During a month (on May 15) after this Manifesto appeared it collected 5614 signatures.

Explaining the appearance of their Counter-Petition “Stand for Israel, Stand for Peace” Fiamma Nirenstein and her colleagues appeal to all of us:

“Dear friends,

a group of French Jewish intellectuals has recently promoted a manifesto (JCall — "Call for Reason"), which essentially is an attempt to compel Israel to give up and surrender.

The JCall document will contribute to strengthen the great wave of delegitimization of the State of Israel and of its politics.

We have answered with the power of the real reasons, the reasons of Israel, and we want the number and quality of our signatories to show that a large opinion movement in defense of Israel exists all through Europe and worldwide.

You can read below our appeal "Stand for Israel, Stand for Reason". We ask you to sign it and spread it through all your contacts to achieve our goal as soon as possible.”

On May 15, about 2 weeks after Petition was launched, it was signed by 3116 persons.

Text of petition:

(at the end of the text there is a link to sign the petition)


The attack against Israel by the Jcall document is inspired by a short-sighted view of the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict. In fact, the signatories of this appeal do not have the clear perception of the global physical and moral threat to which Israel is currently exposed. It is indeed incredible that intelligent and cultivated people like Alain Finkelkraut and Bernard-Henri Levy — instead of dealing with Iran that will soon keep the whole world under the threat of the range of its atomic bomb — play with the idea that Benjamin

Netanyahu is the true hindrance to peace, that the essential obstacle to a resolution of the conflict is a reproachable attitude of Israel. The intellectuals who have signed the French document ignore history

and don’t care about the help that it will give and is already giving to the unprecedented delegitimization threatening the life of Israel.

Pushing Israel to concessions without rewards, simply means to surrender the enemy without any guarantee: the unilateral withdrawal from Gaza has produced disastrous consequences, the land Gush Katif inhabitants has been kicked out from is since then a launching pad for missiles and terrorists; Ehud Barak’s concessions in Camp David, designed to give Arafat practically everything he was asking for, led

to the horror of the second Intifada, with its two-thousand people killed by suicide attacks; the evacuation of Southern Lebanon in 2000 strengthened the Hezbollah, supplied them with 40,000 missiles and led

to the 2006 war.

Finkelkraut, Henri Levy and their fellow signatories claim that they are concerned about the future and the security of Israel. But they actually ignore the basic element that has prevented success of any peace process, namely the Arab and Palestinian refusal to recognize the very existence of the State of Israel as a permanent nation-state in the Middle East. This all-encompassing rejection of Israel’s right to exist is reflected day by day in the Palestinian and pan-Arab media.

The attack against Netanyahu aims at breaking up his right wing coalition. But it actually never mattered whether an Israeli government was right or left: anyhow the Palestinians refused any proposal of peace.

Israeli land concessions like the ones the French intellectuals advocate will never bring peace. Only a cultural revolution in the Arab world can achieve it, but nobody asks for that, not even Obama, who devotes US great strength to pressure only Israel. This is the current fashion.

Peace will not come because Israel becomes smaller. What will bring us closer to peace is if Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas stops naming public squares after mass-murderers like Hamas bombmaker Yehiya Ayash; if the Palestinians stop passing out candies when Jewish families are murdered by suicide bombers in restaurants; and when the Arab world accepts Netanyahu’s modest request to recognize the State of Israel as the State of the Jewish people.

This reality is ignored as well by the Israeli intellectuals who have signed a document against the Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel, who wrote a very noble letter to support Jerusalem spiritual core and

historical homeland of the Jewish people.

This sadly politically correct epidemic is probably designed to give some oxygen to the defeated pacifist movements that is actually able only to crash against the rock of the Islamist hatred culture and to

defame Israel. But in this approach there is no contribution to any better future for the Middle East: the world must find the courage to face the new Islamist frenzy that springs from Iran, Syria, Hezbollah

and Hamas and points to the destruction of Israel. Iran and its allies are of course arming themselves with lethal weapons, not with vain words, like those who signed “The Call for Reason”. But even words can

kill and destroy.

The signatories of the J-Call manifesto show a blatant ignorance of the extended hand policy adopted by Netanyahu since his Bar Ilan speech in June 2009, the ten-months settlements freeze, the lifting of

many check points and the adoption of important measures to ease the Palestinian economy. And you can clearly see that the “Finkelkraut document” has an Obama flavour, a prissy and respectable trendy

attitude intellectuals are often unable to say no. This makes possible nowadays to the increasing number of Israel’s enemies to delegitimize the Jewish State rejoicing “even the Jews are with us”. If this was

the signatories aim, they have indeed achieved it.
