Fill out the form below to petition with Almagor.
The Almagor Terror Victims Association periodically draws up petitions, generally to oppose gestures or deals in which terrorists are to be released and sometimes to oppose the transfer of munitions to the Palestinian Authority or regarding other topics.
By signing a petition, you express your position on an issue without having to go through the media, which seek comment only from experts or those involved in a matter, and often fail to represent all viewpoints.
The number of petitioners is not always the crux of the matter: who signs also is important. In 2009, a Almagor petition signed by 130 people, including former combat soldiers who were injured while hunting down terrorists, the father of a soldier killed while hunting down a terrorist, reservists in combat units, tens of ranking IDF officers, and professors such as Nobel Prize winner Yisrael (Robert) Aumann, called not to release terrorists because it predictably leads to additional murders. The petition was publicized shortly after intellectuals including Amos Oz, A.B. Yehoshua, and Savyon Liebrecht released their own petition demanding that “any price” be paid in exchange for kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit. The Almagor petition shattered the impression that all Israeli intellectuals and moralists advocated freeing an unlimited number of murderers in exchange for one soldier.
