In the last several days nearly 10,000 worldwide have signed a petition urging a halt to plans to build a large convention center in the middle of the ancient Jewish cemetery of Vina! Developers and the politicians have boasted that many millions in European Union “structural funds” would be put toward the project the project!

It is important for this petition to reach 100s of thousands in order to take a clear moral stand against this grave desecration. 

The petition can be signed here:

I hope Israel National News will also post this action, as part of a leading story. History will not forgive us if we remain silent.
