Stopping the Cycle of Violence in the Middle East: A Teach-in for Action
Nov 29, 2023 07:30 PM CT
In the face of Israel’s U.S.-supported genocidal attacks in Gaza, resulting in over 10,000 deaths so far, including thousands of children, the threat of a wider regional conflict is undeniable. These attacks coincide with U.S.-Saudi “security” negotiations, potentially involving military support, with the hope of normalizing Saudi-Israel relations.
What’s most alarming is Saudi Arabia’s request for uranium enrichment—a grave concern given its openness to seeking nuclear weapons if Iran pursues them.
American political leaders have consistently amplified a Iranian nuclear threat, potentially as a pretext for military action against Iran, while Israel, which has its own nuclear arsenal, has been a prominent advocate of this narrative. Preventing the introduction of another nuclear dimension into this already tragic Gaza conflict is paramount and should be most urgent.
