Yonathan D.
started this petition to
President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry

Imagine yourself seating at home and suddenly receiving a phone call from your son. He is crying from pain and he tells you that unless you send his kidnapers the sum of 40,000 $, they will cut also his other fingers.

Hundreds of Eritrean family members receive similar, or worse, phone calls daily.

Thousands of East Africans, who have been abducted by criminal trafficking rings, are right now being tortured in Egypt’s Sinai until their desperate families pay huge ransoms for their freedom. Many of them are being raped on a daily basis, and some of them die every day. The US government is the big financial supporter of Egypt. As the internal political situation in Egypt is very unstable, only a clear threat from the US government to stop the support to Egypt, can end this five years long on-going human atrocity.

Sign the petition now and share it with everyone.
