Int’l Conference on War, Imperialism and Resistance in West Asia

7. March 2007

12th-14th March 2007, Delhi

West Asia is currently becoming the global flashpoint, with US imperialism seeking to remould the region to its liking. Israel, its closest ally in the region, is also seeking to destroy the Palestinian nation. The catchall slogan of “War against Terror,” post 9/11,is a cover for the aggressive designs of the US-Israeli axis, shown by the occupation of Iraq and possible military strikes against Iran.nUnfortunately, the Government of India’s the vote in IAEA on Iran and its continued military relationship with Israel in which India has become the largest importer of arms from Israel, has deeply compromised its foreign policy. To highlight the above issues and generate a wider solidarity for the people under occupation and military threat in the region, a 3-day conference is being organised. The details are as follows:
