Conference organizer’s see Israel’s security as tantamount to achieving regional stability.

An international conference discussing ways to resolve the Israel-Arab conflict commenced in the Netherlands Tuesday, stressing the centrality of attainting Israel’s security as a means to gaining regional peace.

The conference, titled “A Safe Israel in a Peaceful Middle East,” is organized by the Centre for Information and Documentation on Israel (CIDI), and is “dedicated to John Manheim, who is resigning his chairmanship of CIDI after 11 years,” the CIDI website stated.

According to conference organizers, due to take place at The Hague’s Peace Palace, the session’s core theme will be an analysis of crucial relationship between security and peace, with organizers saying that Israel’s “very existence is still threatened by radical regimes and organizations.”

“How do we put an end to the verbal aggression, terror and war threats and the arms race in the Middle East? Can we prevent the spreading of the Arab-Israeli conflict to Europe and the rest of the Western world? Could Israeli membership of NATO and/or the presence of an international peace force membership boost security in the Middle East? Can the development of an Iranian nuclear bomb be stopped?” the conference mission statement said
