A peace conference or a racism conference?

Representatives of 31 countries and 3 international organisations gathered in Cairo to hold a summit called the “Cairo Peace Summit”, in the presence of the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres and the President of the European Council, not to stop the brutal Israeli aggression against the people of Gaza, which increased in ferocity during the Summit, as if it was a message the Zionists were sending to the distinguished gentlemen gathered at this farcical summit. These Western leaders did not come from the ends of the earth and across seas and oceans for any other reason but to condemn the victim and the oppressed. They did not come to condemn the criminal aggressor.

The session witnessed a disagreement between the Arab and Western countries, and no final statement was issued due to the Western countries’ bias in favour of Israel and their insistence that the final statement include condemning Hamas as a terrorist movement and not condemning the Israeli aggression against Gaza. They also did not agree to the Arab countries’ request for an immediate and urgent ceasefire, prompting Egypt, the host country, to issue a weak and lacking statement approved by the Arab countries, in which it explains they are seeking to build an international consensus across cultures, races, religions and political positions on human values in order to reject violence and terrorism, calling for an end to the ongoing war, demanding respect for the rules of international and humanitarian law, stressing the utmost importance of protecting civilians, giving priority to ensure the flow of humanitarian aid and warning against the spread of the conflict to other regions.

It was a weak Summit that did not rise to the level of or befit the magnitude of the event, so it certainly deserved to fail. They called it a peace summit, but who told them that Israel wants peace? It is a usurping entity that built its pillars with the bones of the Palestinians and irrigated its usurped land of Palestine with the blood of the Palestinians. The Zionist state does not understand the language of peace, nor has it learned or understood it. It tricked the Arab countries with it and deceived the hypocritical international community that sheds tears over the dead Israelis but did not bat an eyelid at the brutal massacres committed by the Zionists against the civilian people of Gaza, including its children, women and the elderly, as if the life of Palestinians are less valuable than the lives of Israelis. The Zionist leaders expressed this explicitly and obscenely, for example, when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Hamas fighters are “animals” and Defence Minister Yoav Gallant described them as “human animals”. These vile descriptions were implicitly expressed by Western officials during their speeches at the Summit to condemn Hamas to justify Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians. It is as if they are condemning the entire Palestinian people and implying that they do not deserve to live.

With their shameful position, the West is only deepening and establishing hateful feelings of racism, although they are the ones promoting human rights but, in their eyes, humans are those who are white, blonde and have blue eyes. They are hypocrites who claim to be advocates of protecting minorities and different cultures, from the Democrats in the US to the Labour in the UK, and their counterparts in the West. However, the truth about them has been revealed and exposed. Their racism makes them closer to the KKK gangs and white supremacists, in that when the conflict involves harm to people with blue eyes and white skin, human and moral principles and values are dropped, national principles are eliminated, and the right is equal to the left. I wish the Arabs would realise this, wake up from their long slumber and not live with their delusions of peace, with the US as the sponsor of peace treaties. How can America be a sponsor of a just peace agreement between the Palestinians and the Israelis? It is a dishonest mediator. It is the protector of this usurping entity, and it supplies Israel with the latest destructive weapons and deadly bombs. Their President, Joe Biden, along with his forces and fleets reassured Israeli after Operation Al-Aqsa Flood and supported them despite the Al-Ahli Baptist massacre, trying to shift responsibility away from Israel and push it on to the Resistance!

During his visit, Joe Biden said, “The State of Israel was born to be a safe place for the Jewish people of the world. That’s why it was born. I have long said: If Israel didn’t exist, we would have to invent it.” This is almost the same sentence he said when he was a Senator, “Were there not a state of Israel, the United States of America would have to invent an Israel to protect her interest in the region.” He was right about that, as the Zionist state, called the State of Israel, is nothing but a Western colonial project to separate the Arab world, east from west, and divide and fragment it in order to weaken the Arab nation, to serve their colonial purposes and economic interests in the region, which is to steal their wealth.

The racist tendency rooted in Western cultures does not distinguish right from wrong, or between what is good and bad unless it poses a danger to its interests. This is partially what is happening today in Palestine with the rise of the Resistance and the development of its comprehensive uprising from the Sword of Jerusalem to the Al-Aqsa Flood, and the floods of Palestinian blood that is drowning and destroying the sword of the West and its entity that they created and which, if it did not exist, they would have invested.
