The Temple Mount Manifesto

Every Israeli Government since 1967 has systematically denied the Jewish People of the right to pray and worship on the Temple Mount and Jews are routinely arrested and harassed for even attempting religious acts on the Mount. This policy is a gross violation of Jewish and Democratic principles. Click here to read - The TEMPLE MOUNT REPORT - The Denial of Jewish Prayer on the Temple Mount.  אנו (פעילי הר הבית ותומכיהם) עובדים קשה על מנת להשיג מספר משמעותי של חותמים על העצומה הזו קודם שנשלח אותה לראה"מ נתניהו.למרות שאנו מודעים לכך שנדיר שעצומות משנות מציאות, זו יכולה לשמש ככלי להעברת דעת הציבור לראש הממשלה בנוגע להר הבית.מסיבה זו הכרחי שנאסוף אלפי חתימות. אחיזת ראש הממשלה בכסאו הינה רעועה. ניתן למצביעים להראות לו שלזכויות היהודים בהר הבית ישנה משמעות עצומה עבורנו.אנא חיתמו ושתפו. El Manifiesto de Monte del Templo - Haga clic aquí THE TEMPLE MOUNT MANIFESTO Whereas the Temple Mount is the holiest site to the Jewish Nation; Whereas the Temple Mount is the site of the Jewish Temple destroyed first by Babylon in 587 BCE and again by Roman Legions in 69 CE; and whereas the Jewish People have never abandoned hope of returning to the site of their ruined Temple; Whereas the liberation of the Temple Mount and the Old City of Jerusalem during the Six-Day War in 1967 was not only an act of self-defense but a historic act of justice in restoring the Jewish Nation to their holiest site; Whereas the current 'status quo' denies the historic longing and aspiration of the Jewish Nation to once again pray and worship at the site of their ancient Temple; and whereas the continued Palestinian violence, incitement, and destruction of Temple antiquities on the Mount constitutes a grave desecration of the holy site; Resolved that the undersigned support the freedom of peaceful Jewish prayer, worship, and assembly on the Temple Mount, in accordance with Torah Law, and call upon the Government of Israel to annul the anti-Jewish & Democratic "status quo" immediately.

Petition to Rick Snyder

Karen Kantzler, nearing 70 yrs old is Decades Overdue for Release from Michigan Prison.

TimeToFreeKaren.org Commute Karen: 69 yrs old; 29 yrs in prison; passed every test for parole eligibility with flying colors; & the 2 trial judges who sentenced her decades ago want her released. Now. In 1988, Karen was convicted of second degree murder in the shooting death herself of her abusive husband in their home in 1987. After 3 decades behind bars, Karen is overdue for release. Here' why: Karen is a model prisoner. The Michigan Parole Board described Karen as a model inmate at her 2015 parole hearing.   Karen has not one mark on her record in 30 years of incarceration. This is unheard of in the MDOC.  Karen has participated in taken nearly every rehabilitation opportunity & practically all of MDOCs programs while in prison Karen has shown remorse for her crime and accepted complete responsibility for her criminal behavior; Karen has met every standard of excellence for a prisoner; Karen has passed every test for parole eligibility with flying colors; Karen scored a 17 on her Parole Guidelines Evaluation. Any score above a 3 is considered high eligible for parole;                                                                     Karen is 69 years old, blind in one eye and poses no threat to society                                                                Karen has a Michigan Parole Board Approved Home waiting for her upon her release. Carson City United Methodist Church supports Karen's release and is eager for her to join their congregation. Norman Lippitt, the very judge who tried Karen's case in 1987 has been advocating for her release for over 25 years. He even went to her last parole hearing - 30 years after he tried her case - pleading for her release. To no avail.  Judge Lippitt’s successor, Barry Howard, reversed Karen's conviction and sentence in 1993, stating that her marriage WAS her sentence; she is not a threat to society and the original sentence was far greater than Lippitt had intended. He continues to support her commutation, also advocating now for clemency.   Karen has over $40,000 in her prison savings account. Women’s Huron Valley Correctional Facility - where Karen is incarcerated - is reportedly 100 inmates over capacity and MDOC is looking for ways to make more room for the influx of new inmates. It costs tax payers up to $70,000 a year to keep older women like Karen in that prison.  Lets #ReinventMichigan. Lets use our money wisely - and not by keeping women who are harmless to society behind bars. Governor Snyder can commute Karen's sentence at any time. Literally.  Please sign for Karen's commutation and let him know you want him to take action now.

Petition to Excellency Secretary General, United Nations Organization New York, USA

Establish a Universal Center for Dialogue in Lebanon & Designate Lebanon Land for Dialogue

This petition to establish a UN universal center for dialogue in Lebanon and to designate Lebanon as a land for dialogue Amon civilizations and cultures is addressed to His/Her Excellency the Secretary General of the United Nations Organization in New York, USA. This is a civil society effort.  In his address to the UN General Assembly on the Dialogue between Cultures and Religions (Item 45: Culture and Peace) on November 12th, 2008, His Excellency, President Michel Sleiman, stated that “the philosophy of the Lebanese entity is based on dialogue, reconciliation and coexistence”. He declared that the Lebanese people would like Lebanon to “become an international center for the management of the dialogue of civilizations and cultures and consequently a global laboratory for that inter-entity dialogue”.St. Pope John Paul II, Ayatollah Muhammad Mahdi Shamseddine, the Muslim-Christian Summit at the Maronite Patriarchate in Lebanon and hundreds of thousands of people in Lebanon and around the world, we believe that Lebanon is more than a country it is a message of freedom, a model of pluralism and a special space for dialogue and coexistence of different cultures, ethnicities and religions. We also believe that Lebanon’s vocation is to embody this message and to strive to live it and to promote it despite all the challenges and the obstacles faced.  We started this petition to capitalize on the call by former President Michel Suleiman to the UN to designate Lebanon as “an international center for the management of the dialogue of civilizations and cultures and consequently a global laboratory for that inter-entity dialogue”. Your signature will make a difference because the world needs a place where dialogue takes place not on the macro levels but also on the micro levels – on the levels of people in their daily lives as it is the situation in Lebanon. Your signature will give people hope and strengthen their resilience not only in the Middle East, but also around the world for an alternative to disputes, conflicts and wars. The Middle East needs Lebanon to be this space and your signature will make it happen. The Initiative is Notre Dame University project using civil society track to achieve its objectives. It is supported by Lebanese people, friends of Lebanon, people of good will, civil society advocates and organizations who believe that Lebanon is a land of dialogue and needs to be internationally acknowledged as such by the UN and its member states. My name is Dr. Guita Hourani. I am the Director of the Lebanese Emigration Research Center, member of the Initiative's Steering Committee and the Petition Campaign Coordinator of the Initiative. On behalf of Notre Dame University, the Steering Committee, the Executing Director and the Advisory Committee of the Initiative thank you in advance for supporting this initiative and for signing the petition. "Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will not themselves be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die, but long after we are gone be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistence." Architect Daniel Hudson Burnham (1846 – 1912).
