Schiller Institute Conference

Kiedrich, Germany

Resolution Against Military Action Against Iran

The following resolution was passed unanimously by the 350 attendants at the Sept. 15-16, 2007 conference of the Schiller Institute in Kiedrich, Germany:

The participants of the Schiller Institute conference in Kiedrich unanimously condemn any plans to launch any military attack on the Republic of Iran. Such an attack would have devastating effects on international peace and throw civilization into a dark age.

It would have much, much worse effects than the war against Iraq, which already is the worst strategic catastrophe in the history of the United States.

We point to the statements of the head of the IAEA, Dr. Mohammed El Baradei, who recently warned that the media campaign against Iran has reminded him of the lies leading to the Iraq war.

Dr. El Baradei also reported that in the recent negotiations with the Iranian government, a breakthrough was made, many important questions have been settled, and a framework has been agreed upon to settle all remaining questions by November of this year.

In the Twenty-first Century, war is outdated, and can no longer be a means to settle disputes, which can be settled through economic cooperation, according to the idea of a community of principle based on the principle of the Peace of Westphalia in the interest of the other.
