(WASHINGTON, DC) - We're amazed at the coming together of all of you, at such a time of extreme humanitarian crisis. We're growing in unprecedented speed and in only 5 days, our petition passed the 4000 signatory milestone! We’ve managed to raise our voices loudly against Simon Cowell’s $250,000 donation to Haim Saban’s “Friends of the IDF”. Right now, more than ever, as Israel's siege on Gaza tightens, and 1.7 million people are left without electricity and fuel, it's important to pressure high-profile contributors to Israel's army. So please sign and share the link

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!
