To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled, the petition of certain citizens of Australia shows:

That Australian servicemen in the Sinai Peace-Keeping Force are seen as an advance guard of a United States Rapid Deployment Force in the Middle East and as an indication of Australian political support for Israeli policies on the West Bank of the Jordan River and in Lebanon.

Your petitioners therefore pray that the Australian Government will take action to withdraw Australian troops from the Sinai Peace-Keeping Force.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
