Israel: Don't deport me from the land where I was born

My name is Munther Fahmi, and I am the founder and owner of the Bookshop at the American Colony Hotel in Jerusalem, a cornerstone of cultural life in Jerusalem and a small but vital space of free and independent thought and debate.

Now Israel is threatening me, a Palestinian who was born in this city, with imminent deportation!

I am a bookseller, and I have done absolutely nothing to deserve this.

Please support my right to continue to live and work in Jerusalem, the city of my birth, by signing this petition calling on Israeli authorities not to deport me.

Thank you!
