FAKE PETITION THAT SHOULD NOT BE SIGNED! 'Stop pro-Russian forces from distributing anti-Semitic literature in Ukraine' Denounced by local Rabbi as a HOAX! The anti-Semitic literature comes from the PRO-UKRAINIAN forces, which include Fascist elements.
========
SORRY that I signed this!
SORRY to see that many of my friends did! for the best of reasons!
SORRY that I can't change the title of this News Item, which is mis-leading!
.
The person who presented this Petition, is I believe sincere, but was TAKEN IN BY THE HOAX as so many of us were!!!
PLEASE READ THE DAILY MAIL ARTICLE to which there is a LINK below the Petition.

READ THE DAILY MAIL ARTICLE in order to understand why you SHOULD NOT SIGN THIS PETITION.

A complicated situation, we're not being given the full story

We all denounce Anti-Semitic actions, RIGHT? Of course we do!
However.....
This is an example of a Petition that is MIS-LEADING IN THE EXTREME.
.
I signed it myself - AND I AM SORRY I DID!
I see that a lot of my friends have signed it too - MIS-LED AS I WAS.
Again, YOU MUST READ THE DAILY MAIL ARTICLE cited with the Petition.
.
Things in the Ukraine are not as black-and-white as we would like them to be, or as we may be reading in the press!
There is not a simple division of "Good Guys" and "Bad Guys", like in the cowboy movies!
The pro-Ukraine forces are a DIVERSE lot - ranging in political views all over the map.
Originally they were mostly non-violent pro-democracy folks - but -
ARMED UKRAINIAN NATIONALISTS TOOK OVER, and MANY OF THESE GROUPS ARE FASCIST IN EVERY SENSE - AND ANTI-SEMITIC.
And, according to the Jewish Community Leaders - as in the Daily Mail article! - it was the UKRAINIAN FORCES, not the pro-Russian ones, who tried to "stir up trouble" by this ridiculous HOAX!
.
It is a very complicated situation, the non-violent protestors - it's all out of their hands; and NOBODY comes off clean, now, neither Russians nor Ukrainian Nationalists...

Read this! Propaganda at work... very clever!

ESSENTIAL TO READ THIS DAILY MAIL ARTICLE!

Another Petition that YOU SHOULD NOT SIGN!!!

I just came across this -

It is A CARE2 PETITION THAT NO CARE2 MEMBER SHOULD SIGN -

but, obviously, several have!

.

This is AN EXAMPLE OF A PETITION THAT SHOULD *NOT*,
REPEAT, *NOT* BE SIGNED:
altho it is a Care2 Petition, IT IS DECEPTIVE:
.
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/849/670/973/support-climate-denier-owen-patterson/
.
The Petition says, "Support CLIMATE DENIER" -
very FEW Care2 members, believe that Climate Change is not REAL -
a Climate DENIER, is one who DENIES that Climate Change is Real, goes along with what the Oil and the Coal Industries say...
I see a few signatures I recognize on there, I wonder if they READ the Petition...

.
Climate Change is SCIENTIFIC FACT, the Petition LIES outright, when it says that "thousands" of Scientists don't agree with that Scientific Fact....
Signing this, you are helping the WRONG GUYS, the Corporations.....

.
I'm so surprised people signed this, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered to put it here, asking people to NOT sign! Please pay attention to WHICH SIDE A PETITION SUPPORTS....
Don't sign just to get the Butterfly Points....

Too many, I think, do!
