Petition to Israeli parlament, our jewish supporters in USA and the world and the population in Israel

A disabled person is not a half of a person. Disabled people in Israel live in misery !!!!

Disabled people in Israel live for about 15 years without a raise on the pension they get after they worked and payed enshorance all their working life about 600$ per month, sum wich is impossible to live from. For most of them this sum doesn't cover their rent even. Those people live in continuously misery, poorly, always thinking a few times what to do with the money: to pay the rent, taxes, to buy food, medicine or pay for their treatments...because all those are impossible to reach...not in a dream even. People live in fealty places because their unability to clean, they are disabled..at some we can see more and at some you can't even see (cancer, depression, CFS, etc...can't be seen but are disabeling someti.es not less then physical disability)...if they decide to pay the rent they'll die of hunger or without their medicine. If they will buy their medicine and some money is invested in food, they are risking to live on the streets because not paying the rent will get you out on the streets. PLEASE SIGN AND SUPORT PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES. They deserve a propper raise...THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO LIVE...wich should be equaled with minimum salary on the market, not like they are trying to do now less then 100$ add wich will help with almost nothing. That should happen imediately and AT ONCE...not parted like a loan to be payed along the years. People need to live NOW, many of them won't survive "along the years".

Petition to The Department Secretary of HUD, Goodwill Housing, Bob Rosinski

To stop being harassed in public housing for being gay, hiv positive.

Hiv positive affected disabled couple being systematically,  cruelly harassed and threatened with eviction by untrained,  violating staff who think it's fine they are called faggots in Beneva Oaks Apartments/ Goodwill Housing/public housing.   There have been many allegations of sexual harassment by the staff members using threats and intimidation to cover it up. One person , who was bullied into leaving, was actually WORKING. Allegedly multiple staff members LIED ,telling this person she made too much and therefore owed them thousands of dollars on back rent if they stayed. This client was lied to, and made to be homeless. The numbers speak for themselves. The staff has refused to accept their errors once exposed. Others have been threatened with eviction over accommodations with their service or support animals.  Non Christian clients,  who use candles or incense to worship,  have been told to stop their religious practice or face eviction.  There was a fire in the building , on the third floor in May 2014. The smoke damage was extensive, and several  apartments were gutted. The staff immediately changed rugs in common areas,  but refused to replace other affected apartments' rugs. Many people are still living with smoke filled rugs .The management keeps telling these clients there is NO MONEY TO replace THEIR carpets.  People who have spoken up for themselves have received threatening,  phone calls and letters from management. Disabled people being told they will be homeless if they say anything else.  Hiv+ clients have been told to stop clearing their throats, spitting,  in the bushes in the community garden due to "health concerns"
