How to avoid a war against Iran and Syria? Can the global civil society form a Mediation-Committee of respected personalities! We should collect suggestions, like: Gorbachev, Charter, Tutu, Galtung, Assange … … and we should ask them to find, in the interest of world peace, a negotiated solution.
EU and U.S. have decided sanctions against Iran. Iran says, they will not accept this. We need to fear an escalation, even a global military confrontation. With unpredictable consequences! Are we helpless?
One suggestion: we choose ten from world-renowned personalities and ask them to act as mediatosr between Syria, Iran, EU, U.S.,UN, China and Russia. At the same time we urge all sides to stop any military action and to put on the negotiating process. We should discuss this or other proposals in the global civil society and discuss what personalities we should choose and ask for assistance.
Here are my initial suggestions:
Jimmy Charter (USA)
Johan Galtung (Norway)
Tariq Ramadan (Egypt / Switzerland)
Jürgen Habermas (Germany)
Uri Avnery (Israel)
Desmond Tutu (South Africa)
Butros Butros Gali (Egypt)
Kofo Annan (Ghana)
Mikhail Gorbachev (Russia)
Julian Assange (Australia)
