“If I raise my toast, I will raise it for those who have the courage to change axioms, to overcome prejudices, to change realities…. to all those who believe and support and are ready to assist the continuation of peace in the region. Le Chaim. Le Chaim.” Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin uttered those words of a hopeful future to President Clinton and King Hussein at the conclusion of the negotiations on Middle East peace on July 25, 1995.
By November 4 of that year, he would be felled by an Israeli assassin, deployed by the same people who were responsible, in reality, for September 11, 2001, and the subsequent “wars of retribution” and hegemonism in Afghanistan and Iraq, Libya and Syria. Today, the BRICS-Plus alliance of nations has set the world on the path of economic development as the new name for peace. Southwest Asia, must now see the dream of peace realized for which Rabin gave his life, transforming this now-desecrated Holy Land into a crossroads of world cooperation among differing faiths, cultures and nations, ending the era of Anglo-American imperialism forever.
