Letter to China – Gaza

March 6, 2024

Mr. Ambassador H. E. CONG Peiwu

Chinese Ambassador to Canada,

Dear Sir,

It is out of concern that I am writing to request that China along with the other BRICS nations take action to bring about an end to the genocide and threats to world peace taking place with the war in Gaza.

This war could be ended peacefully if China along with the other BRICS nations were to call for universal sanctions against Israel. China is Israels biggest trading partner and together the BRICS nations could destroy the Israeli war shaky economy.

The world is aware of the mounting death toll and suffering that is occurring in Gaza. The voices in the UN Security Council, the UN General Assembly and the International Court of Justice have all called on Israel to stop its indiscriminate bombardments, but Israel has chosen to ignore world calls for an end to the war.

We all understand that the mounting violence could escalate into a larger war and threaten world peace. We should never forget that Israel is a nuclear armed state led by a very extremist rightwing regime. Israel’s extremism is on display with its genocide of the Palestinian people. Any expanded war that threatens existence of the Israeli state could lead to a nuclear response. It is critical that the crisis in Israel, Gaza and throughout the Middle East be controlled and brought to peaceful resolution. Sanctioning Israel is not an existential threat. It can be a peaceful solution.

It is not to say the sanctions would have to be implemented. If the threat of universal sanctions is communicated well to the Israeli population, with all the communication technology known today, it could generate calls for acceptance with the Israeli public realizing the consequences of refusing.

I respectively request that you give this suggestion heartfelt consideration.
