OWHR Institute supports the end of the catastrophic policies of US, British and French “empire” building, in what has been over 100 years of US/Western hegemony over the Middle East and North Africa, now culminating in despair we see among peoples of the Middle East and North Africa, and also “attracting rage” among individuals and “attracting reactivity” between nations in the Middle East and North Africa.
Instead we support the analysis for truly “independent” Arab Countries. An excellent analysis has been prepared and presented by the progressive, former US diplomat, professor Hillary Mann Leverett and her husband, former US diplomat, Professor, Flynt Mann Leverett in their book “Going to Tehran: Why America Must Accept the Islamic Republic of Iran” and their public presentations (see video below). The Leverett’s present policies of generosity, and policies that will likely reduce the level of growing reactivity between nations. The Western powers hegemonic Middle East policies are irresponsible and put the whole world in jeopardy, …“attracting rage” in individuals, at a time when the weaponry around the world is so very dangerous. And the western hegemons respond/react with the catastrophic policy of a “War on Terrorism” that is dangerous and irresponsible. We recommend you read the OWHR Institutes’ Vision and Mission Statement and join us to prepare Policies of Generosity, including a Global Marshall Plan and an Environmental and Social Responsibility Charter for Canada. We work hand in hand with the Network of Spiritual Progressives, to promote a “New Bottom Line” set of policies and perspective.
We invite you to view this excellent, important interview with former US diplomat, professor Hillary Mann Leverett and her husband, former US diplomat, Professor, Flynt Mann Leverett, “Why the US Must Come to Terms with the Islamic Republic of Iran.” This video calls on the US to end its policy of hegemony over the Middle East and allow these countries to form independently of US and Western interference.
