> Petition for Lebanon
July/August 2006: As many as 8550 signatures: Thanks for your great support to Lebanon!
His excellency, Mr. Kofi Annan, the UN Secretary General,
We, people and friends of Lebanon, would like to express our indignation with regard to the fatal attacks which are destroying our country since July 12, 2006. Today, fifteen years after the end of the civil war, the country is yet again under siege. Israel has imposed on Lebanon a total blockade, destroying the civilian infrastructures of the country, obliging tens of thousands of people to flee their residences, and leading to the death of too many innocent civilians. These actions constitute crimes against the Lebanese population. And the international community turns a blind eye.
We, Lebanese, friends of Lebanon or simply men and women of peace, would like to make an appeal to the United Nations, in its role as international peace and security keepers, to enforce an immediate cease fire in the country. We invite you to wield pressure on Israel to raise the total blockade imposed on the country as soon as possible. We also ask you to provide the assistance necessary to the Lebanese government so that it can exert its full sovereignty on the whole of the territory.
Over the last few years, the Lebanese people have expressed their utmost desire to see their country free of foreign occupation and to finally be able to exert their total sovereignty on their own territory. The destruction that is now taking place is in no way enabling this process. We need to find a diplomatic and peaceful resolution to this conflict. We believe in the United Nations and in its ability to allow us to achieve these goals, this is why your Excellency, Mr. Kofi Annan we address this petition to you.
Please hear our plea your Excellency the Secretary General, the people of Lebanon need your support.
