IMPLEMENTING THE FUTURE


SEPTEMBER 11 AFTERMATH: TowardsProsperous Global Collective Future THE TRIPLE DEMANDS New Global Order New Global Partnerships New Greater Global Dialogue


“the current pattern of international relations generated by the political, economic,and cultural manifestationsof globalisationhad to be replaced by a new global order founded upon new principles”.[UN cultural diversity committee report]“Crossing the Divide”, October 2001

UN CULTURAL DIVERSITY COMMITTEE:GLOBALIZATION .. Or NEW GLOBAL ORDER DEMAND ?


 Equality between all nations without discrimination The reassess of the commonly held concept of the “ENEMY” in the current global cultural climate,  The equitable distribution of power among nations, The individual responsibility for political decisions, The establishment of alliances on the bases of the fundamental issues that concern humanity. [UN Cultural Diversity Committee Report] October, 2001

UN CULTURAL DIVERSITY COMMITTEE: NEW GLOBAL PRINCIPLES


“Creating global partnershipsbetween the rich and the poor, to make the world work for all, which seemed like an idealistic slogan before September 11th, may prove to be the most pragmatic direction, as the possibilities increase that individuals may one day have access to weapons of mass destruction”.[MP/AC/UNU, 2002 SOF Executive Summary]

MILLENNIUM PROJECT:GLOBAL PARTNERSHIPS ,THE PRAGMATIC DEMAND


“Global; or humanity’s collective future depends on  adherence to the principles of international legitimacy, reinforcing the ability of the UN to act as umbrella beneath which justice among nations can be achieved, and the exercise of dialogue among civilisations”[ Visionists’ Council of Cairo Node, and FRSC ]of Cairo University, 2001

CAIRO NODE:TOWARDS GLOBAL COLLECTIVE FUTURE


“To invite US intellectuals,and intellectuals from around the world ; those who justified the US war against terrorism as a “Just War”(The letter of the Institute of American Values, 12 February 2002) ,and those who criticised it (letter of April 2002)” [ EL-Sayed Yassin , AL-Ahram Newspaper ], Visionists’ Council of Cairo Node

CAIRO NODE:GREATER GLOBAL DIALOGUE DEMAND


 TO ENGAGE In an Open and Constructive Dialogue of Civilisations, Reaching Solutions that WillSAVE THE INTELLECTUAL COMMUNITY from DANGEROUS POLICIES TO STIMULATE DEBATEamong the International Community of Intellectualson the MOST APPROPRIATE MEANSto SECURE A COLLECTIVE FUTURE FOR HUMANITY HOPING that it will ELICIT IDEAS AND CRITICISMS that will Enrich Discussion and Help IMPROVE THE TEXT ON :Terrorism - Counterterrorism Clash of Civilisations, Middle East - Global Peace Crisis Global Dialogue


“Tragically, the low-technologybut high – impact attacksin September 11, demonstrated thatterrorism is increasingly destructive, widespread, and difficult to prevent” [MP/AC/UNU, 2002 SOF Executive Summary]

TERRORISM - COUNTERTERRORISMMILLENNIUM PROJECT TEXT:


TERRORISM - COUNTERTERRORISM CAIRO NODE TEXT I:“ We hold the right to life and safety as the most basic human right, must be respected by all nations and guaranteed effectively by the UN”. Terrorists, political leaders, and criminals who violate this right should be brought to account before the International Criminal Court,an institution Intended by the international community to prosecute war criminals, and for which the US continues to withhold support.


“We affirm, from the outset,our unequivocal condemnationof the terrorist attacksagainst the US in 11 September”[ Visionist’s Council, Cairo Node ]

TERRORISM - COUNTERTERRORISMCAIRO NODE TEXT II:


TERRORISM - COUNTERTERRORISMCAIRO NODE TEXT III:“ We further condemnattacks against civilians on principles, whether they occur in the US; as happened on 11 September, or in Afghanistan ; as during the US compaign ,or in Palestine ,in the West Bank and Gaza ”[ Visionists’ Council, Cairo Node ]


“The severity of religious and ethnic conflicts has escalated to nuclear brinkmanship between India and Pakistan .. forcing a variety of discussions, ranging from ethical issues, to the design of research in the roots and remedies”[MP/AC/UNU, 2002 SOF Executive Summary]

THE CLASH OF CIVILISATIONS(RELIGIOUS AND ETHNIC CONFLICTS)THE MILLENNIUM PROJECT TEXT :


THE CLASH OF CIVILISATIONSRELIGIOUS AND ETHNIC CONFLICTS CAIRO NODE TEXT:“ We believe that there isno clash between civilisations, and that all people of the world, including the Arabs and Muslim peoples ,aspire to live in peace,in a climate of respectfor human rights ” [ Visionists’ Council, Cairo Node ]


The US administration’s habitual divisionof the world’s nations into“good” and “evil”, fixed concept that “who aren’t with us are against us”, and the intellectuals’ conceptof the “just war”are the potentials to sparkreligious and ratially motivated regional and international conflicts

THE MIDDLE EAST – GLOBAL PEACE CRISISCAIRO NODE TEXT I :


CAIRO NODE TEXT II: We observed with concern  the growing hostilitytowards Arabs and Muslims in the US mediafollowing the attacks of 11 September. Arabs and Muslimshave invariably been portrayedas potential terrorists,to be viewed with suspicion. Islam has been assailed as a religionthat breeds and encourages terrorism.


CAIRO NODE TEXT III: These compaigns ignore the fact that terrorism is a worldwide phenomenon,and that extremist political and religious movements exist in every country, including the US


CAIRO NODE TEXT IV:The declared intention to strike Iraq militarily and to oust its regime outside of the framework of international legitimacythreatens chaos in international relationsand destroys the very foundationof the international law


CAIRO NODE TEXT V: The implicit carte blanche to Israel to unleash its compaigns of aggression against the Palestinian people poses a grave threat to regional security in the Middle East, and exposes the Palestinian people to enormous suffering in contravention of all international treaties and conventions


We praise the initiative of UN Secretary-General, forming a committee representative of the diversity of the contemporary cultures,writing a collective report on the “Dialogue Among Civilisations”, and the crucial report “Crossing the Divide”,of October 2001

GREATER GLOBAL DIALOGUECAIRO NODE TEXT I:


GREATER GLOBAL DIALOGUECAIRO NODE TEXT II:Such dialogue should take place within the UN framework, specifically the General Assembly in a special session, and should be based on the UN-sponsored report “Crossing the Divide” of October, 2001


GREATER GLOBAL DIALOGUECAIRO NODE TEXT III:In this context, however, a clear distinction must be drawn between the legitimate right of a people to resist foreign occupation, and terrorism, the latter being rightly condemned by the international community
