A Petition Far From The Real World

Some things in life appear to be very far from reality. The idea of imagining that a certain situation that is far from control is a very little possibility. However, one may act in a certain way in hope that it can change, that a human being with the support of others can make a difference when it is recognised that most problems are not capable of being solved with a single gesture...
This is what I meant...Down below is a campaign in support of proper negotiation between world politicians and a timetable of USA withdrawing from Iraq. To think that USA's withdrawal would be a success to the peace in Iraq is nothing but fantasy. And to encourage our politicians to negotiate is far from possible merely because they spent day and night since the very first election post 2003 talking with each other with no end-conclusion. How different will it be now? Will the meeting in Sharm al sheikh help encourage mature and reasonable negotiations? Will it push our current leaders to move forward? Well, least to say, it's worth a try petitioning for this even when we may not fully agree with the ideas behind the campaign because to me, a petition created in the virtual world seems a long way in making it to reality...

Subject: A real security plan for Iraq
------------------------------------------------------

Finally a meeting to discuss security in Iraq where all the powers will be present including the US, Iraq, Iran, and Syria. But will the hopes and wishes of Iraqi people be represented? The situation is too terrible to leave it to the politicians. We're calling on all Iraqis to send messages to the meeting, and to sign a petition demanding a withdrawal timetable along with all-party negotiations to stabilize Iraq.

The bombings even in the Parliament building, and daily in Baghdad, Ramadi, Diwaniyah, Kerbala, Mosul, show Bush's "Security Plan" has failed. Most Iraqis want US withdrawal within a year or sooner, and know the coalition troop presence is making them less secure. But we need responsibility too -- all-party negotiations, better leadership, real international help for Iraq.

We can't let politicians continue to pursue their own interests by force, while the Iraqi people suffer in chaos and division. So let's send a clear message from all Iraqis to this decisive meeting:

Set a withdrawal timetable and start negotiations: http://www.avaaz.org/en/
The petition will be delivered to the conference and your messages will be projected near the US Capitol building in Washington DC.

Iraqis are caught in the middle of a power game disguised as civil war. But this is not what the majority want! The only solution is to end the occupation and come together for a new Iraq. The powers are meeting next Thursday (May 3rd 2007) in Sharm El-Sheikh, but will they see the light? Let's join with tens, hundreds of thousands of people around the world, and send the politicians a powerful message –

Set a withdrawal timetable and start negotiations: http://www.avaaz.org/en/
Please, participate in the campaign, add your own special message, and forward this email to all your family, colleagues and friends!

In hope,

Khalid, Graziela, Ricken, and the whole Avaaz team

This will end just like every other attempted plan for peace and reconciliation that there has been in the muslim world, with violence, death and failure. Everyone knows that islam is a religion of violence and that muslims don't want to do anything but fight.
