Jordan: say no to Israel's natural gas
To King Abdullah bin Hussein, Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour, Minister of Energy Mohammed Hamed:
As concerned citizens from across the region, we urge you drop the natural-gas deal with Israel immediately. While many countries are urging companies to divest from the occupation economy, this deal will enrich and create dependence on this repressive state. Until Israel ends the occupation, economic ties such as this should be severed by all Arab states. We urge you to explore alternative options as soon as possible.

If this deal is signed, Israel will supply Jordan with natural-gas for 15 years. This has caused massive outrage in Jordan -- thousands of people have raised an outcry, and dozens of ministers have urged the government to reconsider. The Jordanian government is feeling the pressure and deciding their next steps. Let’s join our Jordanian friends and pile on more pressure so the government sees this isn’t just a national issue anymore -- it’s become a regional one.
Sign the petition urging the Jordanian government to ditch the Israeli natural-gas deal. Civil society groups are organizing a massive demonstration in Amman on Friday, and Avaaz will be there to represent each of our voices.
