The Oasis Plan: A Westphalian Solution to the “Mideast” CrisisBy Anastasia Battle
The actual origins of the tragedy now playing out in Southwest Asia are rooted in 19th and 20th century British imperial policies, whose destructive power and purpose has lasted for centuries. Only the human sacrifices are new; the lethal axioms that govern, remain unchallenged. If the proposed “ethnic cleansing” and de facto annexation of Gaza is carried out, it will mean the destruction, not only of the Palestinians, but also of Netanyahu, Israel and NATO. As Lyndon LaRouche pointed out decades ago, when the British, in their infinite wisdom, miscalculate, world wars break out. Though that threat has been effectively opposed, nothing has actually removed that danger of thermonuclear annihilation.
With the rise of the worldwide End of Colonialism movement, expressed in the actions of the BRICS countries, the prospect for the implementation of Lyndon Larouche’s oasis plan for Southwest Asia, written nearly a half-century ago, must finally be seized. Harley Schlanger, TLO spokesman and a LaRouche associate from the time of that proposal, will discuss that solution in the context of, and as an aspect of a new Security and Development architecture—the only sane alternative to the short-term danger of civilization ending thermonuclear war.
