Madrid Democracy Summit

International Summit on Democracy, Terrorism and Security | Safe Democracy

Here is the link to the International Summit on Democracy, Terrorism and Security that takes place in Madrid March 8 – 11. It will bring together UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and around 20 heads of state and government as well as 200 experts in the fields of democracy and terrorism.

The program on the website is still rather rudimentary, but I expect that they will update before and when the summit starts.

I will unfortunately not have the possibility of taken part in all of the summit, but will be part of the key discussion on Wednesday on prospects for democratic reform in the Middle East. I would expect that Egypt will be in the focus of that discussion, but we’ll see.

    Two more summits ahead. It should be just a matter of time until terrorists get their long awaited weapons of mass destruction. Then there will be a new summit on tolerance and understanding and how to handle terrorists using weapons of mass destruction. And then a last summit on why terrorists are destroying our planet despite our offering of tolerance and understanding.

    OMFG they have invited serial-liar propaganda chief Saeb ”Jeningrade massacre” Erakat, from bizzaro world. Nice touch, and why not let the wolfs in amongst the sheep?

    It would be like if the allied forces during WW2, gathered to discuss how to fight off illegal Nazi aggression atrocities, and invited Goebbels.

    ”but will be part of the key discussion on Wednesday on prospects for democratic reform in the Middle East.”I see, well I also see that you are going to attend to a workgroup with Amat A. Alsoswa, the Yemenite Minister for Human Rights (a sick oxymoron that would be laughable if it wasn’t so tragic).

    Could you please be so kind and ask him when they intend to voluntary release the villages of Jewish Yemenite hostages that are under Arabic Islamic dhimma apartheid rules, with an imposed current Yemenite state ban of freely leaving their slavery condition?

    Mr Bildt,

    Looking at the programme of the conference there are sessions about the causes and underlying psychological, cultural and economical explanations of terrorism. Isn’t there a fine line to walk here to not play into the hands of the terrorist organisations themselves in that one makes their argument for them, for example terrorism is caused by poverty or oppression or occupation causes terrorism, thereby eliminating each individual’s responsibility for the actions?

    Islamists must think they have been terrorized in some way. Maybe Arabs have been terrorized by the Koran for so long that they finally have become crazy.
