Call to Saveguard Peace in the Middle East and for a Meaningful Geneva II Conference Now!
Arms down. There is no alternative to a diplomatic solution.
Syria is already „correctly“ obiding by the UNSCR resolution 2118 and in the process of destroying its chemical arsenal. However, this is far from being sufficient to saveguard peace in the country.
Thugs equipped with the most sophisticated arms and electronic surveillance machinery are still infiltrating the country and continue to destabilize it. Saudi Arabia and Katar make no secret of their massive military assistance. Israel has bombed Damascus sveral times, has been militarily threatening Iran even with a nuclear threat. Israel contiues to bomb Gaza at will. It has covered Lebanon with war. If there is to be a lasting Peace in the Greater Middle East, all parties need to be rid of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDS) now. The „rebells“ in Syria are to supervised too and their arms supply needs to be stopped immediatelly. The entire region must be rid of Weaopns of Mass Decustructions as has been called for a long time. Now it is time to mount public pressure.
It is well known that the Syrian chemical arsenal was but a „cheap“ response to the Israel nuclear capacity no matter that it „officially“ denied. The nuclear power Israel continues to threaten world peace with its occupational policy, its expansion of settlements and its frequent bombarding of neighbouring nations.
-As peace loving people we must call for a diplomatic solution. Peace is not secure as long there are weapons of mass destruction in a region that is powder keg.
-We must put pressure on our policy makers to convene in Geneva this year.
We must pressure for stopping the financing of arms supply to nations and individuals who continue to break international law.
-We must call for an interational solution which obliges all sides involved to stop their aggressions and to begin dismantle their arsenal of WMDs now.
We must not allow that one country is being singled out. General disarmament is the need of the day. Balanced and internationally supervised dismantelling of WMDs be a first step.
Let us unite voices for a joint call on our policy makers:
Go to Geneva and work work an ABC-free zone in the Middle East.
Help to stop terrorists and thugs who destabilize the region and threaten world peace.
Let us recall German UN-embassador Werner Hoyer's speech at the UN Assembly on nuclear disarmament and take him by his words:
„Deutschland sieht Abrüstung und Rüstungskontrolle als zentralen Baustein einer globalen Sicherheitsarchitektur. Wir haben viel Zeit verloren. Wir brauchen ein neues Jahrzehnt der Abrüstung, und zwar jetzt. Dafür muss der Nichtverbreitungsvertrag bewahrt und heute hier in New York gestärkt werden. An dieser Konferenz liegt es deshalb, durch vorwärtsschauende Vereinbarungen und Empfehlungen die nötigen konkreten Impulse zu setzen. Ich rufe daher alle Vertragsstaaten dazu auf, ihrer hohen gemeinsamen Verantwortung gemäß auf dieser wichtigen Konferenz zu handeln, um unsere Welt zu einem sichereren und friedlicheren Ort zu machen! Vielen Dank.“
