As the Israelis continue to carry out a scorched earth policy against the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, with the support of Biden and his team, it is clear this is not the path to peace. The whole region, from Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria to Gaza, has been subjected to devastation, the result of applying British imperial geopolitics to a region which needs instead investment and economic development. LaRouche’s 1975 “Oasis Plan” laid the basis for such an approach. Today, the extension into the region of China’s Belt-and-Road Initiative can provide a path to peace. It is time now to convene a summit of the Permanent 5 members of the U.N. Security Council, as President Putin has called for, and which has the full support of the Schiller Institute’s Helga Zepp LaRouche.
