More than 300 Iraqi figures, including tribal sheikhs, called for Iraq to join the Abrahamic Agreements and establish relations with Israel, in the first call of its kind launched during a conference sponsored by an American organization in the Kurdistan region.
Yesterday, Erbil hosted the “Peace and Recovery Conference”, under the auspices of the “Peace Communication Center”, in the presence of a group of politicians, thinkers and peace advocates in Iraq and the Middle East. The American expert of Iraqi Jewish origin and founder of the Peace Communications Center, Joseph Broad, said that about 300 participants gathered in Erbil, the capital of Kurdistan, “from six provinces, namely Baghdad, Mosul, Salah al-Din, Anbar, Diyala and Babil.”
Brod added, “Clan sheikhs from these provinces, intellectuals and writers also participated,” including the leader of the largest tribal confederation in the Middle East, the Shammar tribe, and former generals in the Iraqi army. Also participating in the conference was Chimi Peres, son of former Israeli President Shimon Peres, who spoke about the need for peace relations.
“We demand that we join the Ibrahim Agreements,” said the final statement of the conference, which was read by an employee in the Ministry of Culture in Baghdad, Sahar al-Taie, who presented herself as the head of a feminist organization. The statement added: “Just as the agreements stipulate the establishment of diplomatic relations between the signatories and Israel, we also demand normal relations with Israel, and a new policy based on civil relations with its people in order to develop and prosper.” “No force has the right to prevent us from making such an appeal,” said Al-Taie, who heads an organization against violence against women and was one of the speakers at the conference. Raysan al-Halbousi, the sheikh of the al-Bumatar clan from Anbar, said: “Enmity, strife and killing are enough for us, and a new page must be opened for cooperation, peace and security.”
