Pastor Dankof:

This one is new to me but I got the same sick feeling when I read about it as I did when I read the neo-con Project for a New American Century's plans for the new American empire. Scarey stuff and this is no less frightening. (**inside joke for CP NatCom'ers...think Eby's "7 wise elder" plan globalized and be afraid...be very afraid!!!!!)

If you are familiar with these plans enough to save me a little reseach time and catch me up to speed, please let me know. In particular, I would love to get my hands on a list of American political and Christian leaders who attended and/or spoke at the October 2003 and November 2004 Jerusalem Summits. A partial list of speakers for the 2003 Summit is included below and has an interesting cast of characters.

We need to keep a very watchful eye on this. This extension of the neo-con, Christian right, Israeli alliance should scare the tar out of anyone.

The inaugural Jerusalem Summit took place in October, 2003. Among featured participants were many of today’s most gifted policymakers – Richard Perle, Senator Sam Brownback, Congressman Eliot Engel, Prof. Daniel Pipes, Amb. Alan Keyes, Cal Thomas, Benjamin Netanyahu and Uzi Landau. Their insights and discussions served as the foundation for scholarly works on The Prospects of a Palestinian State and US National Interest and The Plight of Arab Christians under the Palestinian Authority. Both reports were distributed to the US Congress and are being used as the basis for upcoming Congressional hearings and legislation. Jerusalem Summit has inspired the creation of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus as well as establishment of regional Jerusalem Summits which will bring together top intellectual and spiritual leaders in their respective major civilizations to develop morality-based policies which will be presented and coordinated at the annual Jerusalem Summits in Israel’s capital. Jerusalem Summit Asia took part in August 2004 in Manila, Philippines. Jerusalem Summit Americas is scheduled for May, 2005 in Washington, DC. The Second Jerusalem Summit will take place on November 27-30, 2004 and will focus on developing a Humanitarian Solution to the Middle East Conflict. Jerusalem Summit-2004 will also offer innovative ideas in several fields which are crucial for advancement of democracy and overcoming the global threats: Liberation of Moslem Women as Means of Changing the Totalitarian Regimes Use of Technology in Fighting Poverty Interpreting Koran in the Spirit of Tolerance Improving Democratic Voting System

Jerusalem Summit 2004 will also develop a new concept, the Council of Civilizations, which we expect to evolve into a new model for the unity of nations.

Jerusalem Council of Civilizations

Goals and Rationale

The Jerusalem Summit to be held on November 28, 2004, will launch the development of the Council ofCivilizations, which is intended to evolve into a new model for unifying the international community and providing it with an ethical compass.

The Council of Civilizations may be described as a "Voice of Ethics" for the international community, with the goal of working alongside the United Nations to fill the gap which exists in its structure.

A great deal of criticism has been voiced at the United Nations for failing in this task because it has no accountability and therefore does not command the respect of its member states. A true and lasting venue for constructive engagement must be built upon universal ethical principles: a foundation that all sides recognize as sacred. There is only one place in the world that commands the respect and awe of a majority of the world's nations and its three major religions: Jerusalem, the Holy City.

The world needs a non-political body alongside the United Nations, where the best minds of the nations would develop universal ethical norms that would be observed by all the governments and serve as basis for solving humanity's major global problems.

Unlike the current U.N. framework, governments will not be represented at the Council. It will be comprised of the best minds of 12 world's principal civilizations. It is the civilizations that, with their distinct cultures and religious philosophies, are the real players on the world stage, and conflicts between them are the most dangerous and destructive. In the Council they will be represented by individuals who carry moral and intellectual authority with their respective civilizations.

These individuals will be chosen through independent public opinion polls, rather than nominated by their governments. In Persian and Arab civilizations, where most regimes are non-democratic and expression of free will is nonexistent, Council members will be selected from among exiled dissidents.

Council members will not be accountable to their governments, nor be dependent on them, either financially or legally. They will be guided solely by their conscience and major universal ethic principles

The membership of the Council and its Executive Committee will be fully rotated on the annual basis. The Executive Committee will draft the agenda, and administer the Council's sessions in Jerusalem. Council members in their respective civilizations will be selected by regional Jerusalem Summits. JS Asia, JS America, and JS Europe have already been created.

Council will not issue any binding resolutions. Rather, it will strive to gain moral authority, so that its recommendations, developed in the spirit of moral clarity and caring for future generations, eventually become guidelines for the world leaders.

Principles of the Council of Civilizations

Gathering representatives of the civilizations (not governments) which are shaping the fate of humanity: superpowers and clusters of countries with common cultures. Agreeing on the existence and definition of the common moral basis: the universal ethical laws. Searching solutions to the burning global problems on the basis of these values.

Three-fold actions:

  1. Facilitate synergy of civilizations and search for morality-based solutions.

  2. Propagate these solutions and advise governments to adopt them.

  3. Advance Global Education to Universal Moral Values.

The Jerusalem Summit will invite the United Nations to recognize the Council of Civilizations as an official entity which will work alongside the United Nations (in the format of an official,independent body ( an upper "House" or the model of the British "House of Lords") through procedures to be agreed upon.

The seat of the Council will be in Jerusalem with regional bureaus in each of the represented civilizations and a permanent bureau at U.N. Headquarters in New York.

Framework:

Admission to the Council of Civilizations is subject to recognizing the following realities:

1. The spiritual laws that serve as common basis to all religions must also serve as basis for taking decisions in all the human activities. Most important of these laws are:

Consciousness defines Being Human life is sacred People have equal rights and freedoms Religions are diverse and all equally lead to God

Composition of the Council

Jerusalem has always served as a source for the universal concern for all the nations on earth. The Bible indictates that in addition to Israel, there are seventy ancient nations which are the roots of the diverse national groups and cultures which exist today and which are based on the number of descendants of Noah which are listed in the Book of Genesis, after the story of the great flood. Seventy names are recorded, and at the end of the section it states, 'These are the families of Noah's descendants, and from these nations were separated on on the earth after the flood" (Genesis 10:2). The Bible commands the people of Israel to bring seventy offerings on behalf of the seventy nations to the Temple on the Festival of Tabernacles to pray to the Almighty for continued life, sustenance and blessings for the seventy nations. Representatives of the seventy nations were present in Jerusalem at the time at the presentation of these offerings. The seventy nations are the main players in the modern world. Today they are categorized as the major superpowers that represent separate civilizations. Other individual civilizations are represented by the clusters of countries, or regional groups. The major threat to the world peace comes from the clashes of these civilizations.

South America North America North-Western (Catholic-Protestant) Europe South-Eastern (Orthodox) Europe Russia India China South-East Asia Persian civilization Arab civilization Turkic (Turkey and Central Asia) civilization Africa

The Council of Civilizations will be composed of representatives of these twelve civilizations and the host representative from Israel. The Council of Civilizations will bring representatives of these diverse civilizations together in Jerusalem for the first time since Biblical times with the goal of creating unity through the translation of universal spiritual and moral laws into social structure and politics ("social engineering").

The Council of Civilizations is not a Religious/Ecumenical forum and it is not a purely secular Academic/Political institute. It is a framework for the best and purest minds and hearts of the civilized world - to guide the world towards spiritual and moral renewal.

What the Council will actually DO?

  • It will develop an efficient Alternative Model for decision making in world politics: Decision through Wisdom and Ethics not through political or military Force (Realpolitik).

  • It will give practical recommendations on how to solve the most crucial global problems through applying integrating consciousness, reconciling competing geo-political, geo-economic and geo-cultural projects.

A Forum of Spiritual and Lay Patrons representing the major faiths and professions is being formed toward the announcement of the development of the Council of Civilizations.
