Support the International Campaign against Revoking Residency Rights of Palestinians from Jerusalem
Petition Background (Preamble):
The goal of the Campaign is intended for the collective benefit of all former, current and potential Palestinian residents of Jerusalem who’s right to live and lead a normal life in Jerusalem is threatened and violated by the Israeli authorities.
Israel must restore full citizenship rights for Palestinians as enjoyed before1967. The Palestinian population in Jerusalem is under occupation and therefore protected under international law.
The International community, international civil society organizations, and people of conscience must impose broad boycotts and implement divestment initiatives against Israel.

We the undersigned, professors and lecturers from various colleges, universities and academic institutions around the world, condemn the discriminating acts Israel is committing against Palestinians from Jerusalem, especially the Israeli policies in revoking the residency rights; which include the right to live, work, learn and pray in Jerusalem.
As a result of these actions, we are calling the International society to put pressure on Israel to:
Immediately stop revoking Palestinian residency rights in Jerusalem.
Restore full citizenship rights to Palestinians as enjoyed before 1967.
Compensate all those whose residency rights Israel has revoked.
Regain the right to return to Jerusalem for all victims.
All Israeli leaders who were responsible for planning and executing these policies should be prosecuted, tried and punished for their violation of international law.
We are calling upon international civil society organizations all over the world to impose broad boycotts, sanctions and implement divestment initiatives against Israel similar to those applied to South Africa in the apartheid era.
