>What follows is a petition that will  be forwarded to President Bush, and
>other world leaders, urging them to avoid war as a response to the
>terrorist attacks against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon this
>week. Please read it, visit the link below to  sign it, and forward the
>link to as many people as possible, as quickly as  possible. We must
>circulate this quickly if it is to have any effect at all,  as the Congress

>of The United States has already passed a resolution  supporting any
>military action resident Bush deems appropriate.
>We, the  undersigned, citizens and residents of the United States of
>America and of  countries around the world, appeal to the President of The
>United States,  George W. Bush; to the NATO Secretary General, Lord
>Robertson; to the  President of the European Union, Romano Prodi; and to
>all leaders internationally to use moderation and restraint in responding
>to the recent terrorist attacks against the United States. We implore the
>powers that be to use, wherever possible, international judicial
>institutions and international human rights law to bring to justice those
>responsible for the attacks, rather than the instruments of war, violence
>or destruction. Furthermore, we assert that the government of a nation must

>be presumed separate and distinct from any terrorist group that may operate

>within its borders, and therefore cannot be held unduly accountable for the

>latter's crimes. It follows that the government of a particular nation
>should not be condemned for the recent attack without compelling evidence
>of its cooperation and complicity with those individuals who actually
>committed the crimes in question.
>Innocent civilians living within any nation that  may be  found
>responsible, in part or in full, for the crimes recently  perpetrated
>against the United States, must not bear any responsibility for  the
>actions of their government, and must therefore be guaranteed safety and
>immunity from any military or judicial action taken against the state in
>which they reside.  Lastly and most emphatically, we demand that there be
>no recourse to nuclear, chemical or biological weapons, or any weapons of
>indiscriminate destruction, and feel that it is our inalienable human right

>  to live in a world free of such arms.
