Justice for Toveet Radcliffe

This petition had 797 supporters


On February 21, 2015, while on active duty in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), Toveet Radcliffe, a 19 year old African Hebrew became the first African American to die while serving in the IDF.

For nearly an entire year the Israeli army would not tell her family who was responsible for her death. After 11 months, the Israeli army submitted a report claiming that no other person was involved with Toveet's death, thus claiming that Toveet took her own life. Toveet's family and friends know that she would never take her own life. When her family asked to see the investigation materials, the IDF took 3 1/2 weeks to provide the report, leaving only one month to review all of the materials before the IDF closes the case.

An examination of the materials reveals serious failures by the army's investigation division including evidence that is contradictory, has been tampered with and censored. You can watch the video which shares these discrepancies embedded in this petition or at: https://www.facebook.com/khayab1/videos/10153626062300852/ 

On Sunday, March 27, 2016 the IDF will officially close the case, thereby effectively closing any opportunity to appeal the IDF ruling of suicide. 

We are asking that you give your immediate attention to our petition by using the full weight of your respective offices to stop the IDF from closing this case and to allow time to fully investigate the truth about Toveet's death. 

Thank you.
