    CHAIRMAN POE INTRODUCES THE PAKISTAN STATE SPONSOR OF TERRORISM DESIGNATION ACT
    Sep 20 2016
    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02), the Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Terrorism, along with Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (CA-48), introduced H.R.6069, the Pakistan State Sponsor of Terrorism Designation Act.

    Chairman Poe: “Not only is Pakistan an untrustworthy ally, Islamabad has also aided and abetted enemies of the United States for years. From harboring Osama bin Laden to its cozy relationship with the Haqqani network, there is more than enough evidence to determine whose side Pakistan is on in the War on Terror. And it’s not America’s. This bill will require the Administration to formally answer this question. The President must issue a report within 90 days of passage detailing whether or not Pakistan has provided support for international terrorism. Thirty days after that, the Secretary of State must issue a follow-up report containing either a determination that Pakistan is State Sponsor of Terrorism or a detailed justification as to why Pakistan does not meet the legal criteria for designation. It is time we stop paying Pakistan for its betrayal and designate it for what it is: a State Sponsor of Terrorism.”

    Indian govt is not petitioning, Indian Americans are lobbying for it.

    When we say israel has a strong lobby in US, this is how even Israel has a say in internal American politics.

    Nothing wrong with this.

    Too late

    This petition was rejected

    Why was this petition rejected?

    It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.

    The United Kingdom does not declare nations as a 'Terrorist State'.

    You could start a new petition calling on the UK Government to take a specific action to address your concerns about Pakistan.

    You are free to start a new one demanding a specific action as the rejection notice has said Ie for the UK govt to stop supplying weapons to Pakistan or economically sanction them or reject the visas of senior Pakistani military and civilians.

    Petitions solicited by the White House or the UK government are intended for citizens of those countries, even though the web-forms can take input from anyone. Too many signatures were made by non-citizens. Such petitions are doomed to fail.

    White House winds up online petition seeking to declare Pak ‘terror sponsor’
    • Yashwant Raj, Hindustan Times, Washington|
    • Updated: Oct 04, 2016 17:32 IST

    The petition had, until October 21, to gather 100,000 signatures to merit a response from the White House under the rules of the programme, which it had already collected, and several times more.

    The White House has abruptly shut down on suspicion of fraud an ongoing online petitionthat asked it to designate Pakistan a state sponsor of terrorism, citing a law introduced in the House of Representatives last week.
    In a blurb headlined, ‘Closed Petition’, the White House’s ‘We the People’ web page, which hosts the initiative inviting petitions to the administration, said on Monday, “This petition has been archived because it did not meet the signature requirements. It can no longer be signed.”
    The petition had, until October 21, to gather 100,000 signatures to merit a response from the White House under the rules of the programme, which it had already collected, and several times more. At closure, the petition had 625,723 signatures.

    The website said “no more”, but a White House official told Hindustan Times on condition of anonymity that there were “some technical issues with some of the signatures” that needed to be looked into. Some of the signatures “could potentially be removed if there is evidence of fraud” consistent with the terms of participation, the official added.
    Supporters of the petition, which had generated considerable excitement among Indian Americans and in India, will be disappointed, especially as a counter-petition demanding a similar designation for India — as a “terrorist state” — was still up on the We the People page; although way behind, with nearly 66,000 signatures.
    The first petition seeking the Pakistan designation was started by an individual known by initials ‘RG’ on September 21, the day after Republican congressmen Ted Poe and Dana Rohrabacher introduced a legislation in the House of Representatives demanding Pakistan be designated a state sponsor of terrorism.
    Citing the legislation in the petition, the sponsor wrote, it (designating Pakistan a state sponsor of terrorism) was “important to the people of United State of America, India and many other countries which are continuously affected by Pakistan sponsored terrorism”.
    The White House official did not explain the kind of suspected “fraud” that shut down the petition. It was also not clear if it had been suspended and will return after the bad signatures were weeded out or whether the process will have to start afresh.
    Anyone can start a petition after opening an account — just a name and email would do. (This reporter opened an account on Monday, and it took barely a few minutes.) But you don’t need one to merely sign an ongoing petition.
    Under the terms of participations, every individual is allowed only one email account, whether the intention is merely to sign or start a petition. The individual must be over 13 (as the general age-bar for starting an email account)—and cannot sign the same petition more than once.
    An official, though, when asked if signatories must be based in the US or be US citizens, said they can be “anyone provided they follow terms of service”.
    The We the People page said “The White House may disable user accounts, remove associated signatures and remove petitions created or signed by users that it has reasonable belief do not satisfy the above rules.”
    That seems to be what happened to the petition, which had generated considerable amount of excitement in the Indian American community. It was no different back in India, with signatures coming at a phenomenal speed, raising talk of a record turnout.
    The petition seeking a “terrorist state” designation for India was slow in comparison, collecting 66,000 signatures till late Monday evening. Starting on September 27, it needed roughly 34,000 more to get a response from the White house.
    It accused India of waging a “proxy war” against Pakistan especially in “the province of Balochistan, Federally Administrated Tribal Areas and Metropolitan City of Karachi”, and urged the White House to declare India a “terrorist state”.

    The WH has its panties in a twist. It's shit scared that if it has to consider the petition, there might be a groundswell of bipartisan pressure from the Congress on the WH as well as support for the bill. So a clumsy attempt at nipping in the bud. But there will be a lot of nippings to do - this petition is going to come up again and again.

    It will be interesting to see what it does with the declare India as a terrorist state petition. It's reached 85k signs.
