Civil Society Peace Plan Proposed

A global civil society group has proposed to the parties a peace plan that loads up front three hard elements to agree on up front and a process for dealing with minor disagreements over time. In the meanwhile a third party would investigate complaints about extrajudicial killings of the following persons by US President Donald Trump at  33°15’29?N 44°15’22?E (Baghdad, Iraq) on or about 3 January 2020 1 a.m. (local UTC+3).

  1. Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis
  2. Hadi Taremi
  3. Haider Ali
  4. Hassan Abdu al-Hadi
  5. Mag-Gen. Hossein Pourjafari
  6. Mag-Gen. Qassem Suleimani
  7. Muhammad Radha al-Jabri
  8. Muhammad al-Shaybani
  9. Naim Qassem (unconfirmed)
  10. Shahroud Mozaffari Nia
  11. Vahid Zamanian
  12. Two unnamed others

The proposal says, “All sides must agree that allowing an impartial third party take carriage of this file is a suitable way ahead. The parties can file acceptances or grievances with the neutral third party, her excellency Michelle Bachelet Jeria, the United Nations Human Rights High Commissioner, as they arise, but must also agree that between the parties there shall be no further dialogue on the filed matter and no repetition of this style of conduct.” Writing in a letter to the United Nations Secretary General, and to the parties of the 3 January EJK matter in the city of Baghdad, the RINJ Foundation says it has offered a humble suggestion for an immediate stand down and Peace Accord in the Middle East.
