We, the undersigned, call on the Egyptian Transitional Authority and Military to immediately restore adequate security measures to the ancient, Islamic, Coptic and Jewish sites, monuments and storehouses, to stop the unprecedented theft and vandalism, and restore adequate protection to the legacy of Egyptian cultural heritage.
While the situation facing the ancient sites of Egypt is upsetting and concerning, I am very sceptical whether online petions achieve anything. Still, it can do no harm and may do some good, even if only raising the profile of the need for action, so I have signed it.  If you wish to sign too, then you can do so here.

I am an American and read your blog almost daily. Love it! I too have a love for Egypt and it's antiquities and have signed the petition . It's sad for me to see that so few Americans have signed....
