Gaza and the BRICS: Arab leaders’ visit to China is just the beginning
Frustrated by the United States’ unwavering support for Israel’s war in Gaza, Arab governments have been looking at other options to help establish a ceasefire before it’s too late. First stop: Beijing. Moscow’s role may be darker, but no less essential, in building a global coalition that contradicts the West’s position.
The choice of Beijing as the first stop on a tour of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council shows China’s growing role in the Middle East amid global energy competition. It also shows regional frustration over the West’s justification of Israel’s attacks on Palestinians as “self-defense,” according to Asharq, a United Arab Emirates-based news outlet.
The delegation included foreign ministers from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Indonesia, the Palestinian Authority and the president of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
The meeting was chaired by Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud of Saudi Arabia, who called for an immediate ceasefire and humanitarian aid and relief to Gaza, according to the ministry of Saudi Foreign Affairs.
Instead of more futile talks with Israel and the US about the war, the Arab delegation is now focusing its efforts on other sources of geopolitical power. Indeed, Chinese President Xi Jinping is expected to attend the extraordinary virtual BRICS summit on the Palestinian-Israeli issue and make public statements in Beijing on Tuesday, according to Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying.
The sources also say Arab foreign ministers could move to Moscow’s side to continue efforts to leave the West risking further isolation in its approach to the Middle East. (Full article.)

Are US Zionists preparing to sacrifice the entire country on the altar of Zionism in their unwavering support of Netanyahu’s Israel?
