Stop settlement subsidies

To the Internal Revenue Service:

You should deny tax breaks to individuals and organizations actively supporting the growth and militarization of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, which are harming prospects for peace. We call on you to announce an audit of these organizations and an end to their settlement subsidies.

Stop settlement subsidies

It might be the worst tax break ever. Illegal Israeli 'settlements' or colonies on Palestinian land are driving mid-east conflict, have been judged a possible war crime by the UN, and are opposed by the US government. But over $200 million has been funneled from US donors to radical colonist groups - tax free!

It’s shocking, and it’s illegal. These tax breaks clearly violate IRS rules -- but there hasn’t been an outcry to force the IRS to audit these pseudo-charities and cancel their tax breaks. We can change that.

Tomorrow Israel’s hawkish right-wing Prime Minister will address Congress in Washington, and the media is focused on this issue. An outcry right now from thousands of us, on top of a complaint Avaaz is submitting to the IRS, could get covered in the media and be enough to get the IRS to act. Sign now.
