Petition calling for peaceful resolution

We, the undersigned, are stunned and appalled at the tragedy of the attacks which took place in New York and Washington on 11 September, and the grief and suffering of all those whose loved ones were killed and injured. We are horrified at the threat to more innocent people's lives as the military forces of the United States and allies mass for war. Accordingly:

Matching terror with terror is not the answer.
