    Stop Steve Bannon

    Members of Congress must stop Donald Trump's appointment of Steve Bannon as a White House chief strategist and senior counsel. There is no place for a white supremacist, anti-Semitic misogynist in the White House.


    There are currently 276,234 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300,000 signatures!



    PETITION BACKGROUND

    Once again, Donald Trump has made it clear that his administration will embrace policies that pose serious threats to millions of Americans. We need to help make sure Congress holds the line.

    Trump's appointment of Bannon has been heralded by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, as well as the chairman of the American Nazi Party and other ultra right-wing pundits who believe Bannon will be able to fulfill Trump's most bigoted campaign promises.

    Trump has said recently that he would attempt to be a president for all Americans. Yet by choosing Bannon as a top advisor in one of his first big post-election moves, Trump continues to demonstrate that he's far more interested in peddling a dangerous and divisive agenda than in working toward real solutions to our country's challenges.

    We need to build the collective force necessary to put members of Congress on notice that we expect them to vehemently oppose Bannon's appointment, using all the tools at their disposal, including holds on all further Trump appointments.

    Sign George Takei's Petition: Stand Up for Muslims in the U.S.




    • by: George Takei
    • target: President-elect Trump and his cabinet


    179,575 SUPPORTERS

    180,000 GOAL



    When I was just 5, my family was rounded up at gunpoint and forced from our home in Los Angeles into an internment camp. We were prisoners in our own country, held within barbed wire compounds, armed guards pointing guns down at us. It was an egregious violation of our rights under the U.S. Constitution, all in the name of "security.” During that time, fear and racism drove government policy, creating a living hell for over 120,000 innocent Japanese Americans, most of whom were U.S. citizens.


    I have spent my life trying to ensure something like this never happens again. But dark clouds once more are gathering. A Trump spokesperson recently stated the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II "sets a precedent" for Trump to do the same today. And Trump continues to stand by his plans to establish a Muslim registry and ban immigrants from “certain” Muslim countries from the U.S. It starts with a registry, with restrictions, with irrationally ascribed guilt, and with fear. But we know well where it might lead.


    National security must never again be permitted to justify wholesale denial of constitutional rights and protections. If it is freedom and our way of life that we fight for, our first obligation is to ensure that our own government adheres to those principles. Without that, we are no better than our enemies.


    Please sign this petition to let the Muslim community know you support them and oppose any policy targeting them based on their religion or national origin. Help send a message to Trump and his ilk that this will never again happen in America.

    Investigate Murder of 16-yr-old Muslim Girl as a Hate Crime!

    6/21/2017


    A 16-year-old girl Muslim girl named Nabra was abducted outside a mosque in Virginia and beaten to death. But the local authorities are refusing to investigate her brutal killing as a hate crime!

    Sign to ask the Virginia Division of Human Rights and the U.S. Dept. of Justice to investigate Nabra's murder as a hate crime!


    Nabra and a few friends were walking back to the Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) Center after getting food at IHOP at 3:30 AM. Nabra and her friends were observing the holy month of Ramadan, where Muslim's fast during daylight hours. Then, out of nowhere, two young men with baseball bats got out of their car and started attacking the group of young women. Most of the women escaped to the mosque (ADAMS), but Nabra was taken.

    The next day at 3 PM, Nabra's remains were found nearby with a metal baseball bat. Nabra was a smart, social, lovely young woman. She just finished the 10th grade. Nabra was the eldest of four girls and her family lost her on Fathers Day.

    This is a horrific crime that has obviously shaken not only this Virginia community but the Muslim community at large. Whether you are Muslim or not, this deliberate taking of an innocent young life should make you sick. Together, we can demand the crime is taken seriously by asking that it be investigated as the hate crime it obviously was.

    TELL CNN: Report the whole story about Ahed Tamimi!

    CNN'S report about Ahed Tamimi completely omitted the fact that an hour before the filmed slapping incident, Israeli soldiers had shot Ahed's young cousin in the face. The bullet had entered the boy's face below his nose, breaking his jaw and then lodging in his skull. According to a witness, "The blood was pouring from his face like a fountain." Ahed was responding to this shooting.


    CNN reporter Oren Liebermann also omitted other significants facts, including:

    • Israeli settlers who have slapped and assaulted Israeli soldiers are rarely even detained. For example, after Yifat Alkobi slapped a soldier, the settler was released on bail the same day and allowed to return home. The settler had previously been convicted five times but was not jailed once. A writer in Haa'retz reports that the difference is "because one is Jewish, the other Palestinian."
    • The combat-armed Israeli soldiers were invading the Tamimi property, which Israeli forces had previously tear-gassed.
    • The earlier video of Ahed that they mention but don't show, was of her at 11, demanding information about her brother who had been taken by Israeli soldiers, and ends with a mob soldiers chasing and arresting a foreign journalist.
    • A previous video of Ahed, not mentioned, was of her at 14 stopping Israeli soldiers from forcibly taking away her little brother, who had a broken arm.
    • Ahed and her family are resisting Israel's confiscation of their land.
    • Two days before the CNN report, Israeli forces had killed another Tamimi teen, with a bullet to his neck.
    • When Ahed was 10, Israeli soldiers killed her cousin; when she was 11 they killed her uncle; when she was 13 they shot her mother in the leg – she was on crutches for two years.




    Perhaps CNN should disclose the fact that their correspondent, Oren Liebermann, is an Israeli citizen.
    Holding Israeli citizenship, however, does not preclude excellent, full reporting. We suggest Liebermann and CNN follow the example of Israeli journalist Gideon Levy, and recommend that they read Levy's recent Ha'aretz report about Ahed Tamimi (also posted here).


    Please contact CNN and demand they report fully and accurately on Ahed Tamimi and her family!
