Schiller Institute Urges Funding for Afghan Health Platform; British Urge Billions for Its Mythical ‘Global Warming’
Oct. 31, 2021 (EIRNS)—Schiller Institute Chair Helga Zepp-LaRouche in her interview with a Pakistan TV network yesterday disclosed that more than 2,000 hospitals in Afghanistan had closed down after the U.S./NATO withdrawal and the Ghani government fled in late August. And now, she said, only 100 hospitals, lacking medical supplies, power, water, and personnel, remain for 38 million people.
Mrs. LaRouche called on her audience to mobilize immediate emergency aid to be sent from the United States, Europe and the whole world; China has already done so. She has named the needed supply action “Operation Ibn Sina,” after the famous doctor born in today’s Afghanistan, considered one of the greatest scientists of the Islamic Golden Age, and the father of modern medicine. Of the 250 books Ibn Sina—also known in Europe as Avicenna—is estimated to have written, 40 deal with medicine, including The Book of Healing, and the Canon of Medicine (which became a standard medical text at medieval universities until about 1650).
In a cynical juxtaposition to this heroic effort to save the lives of Afghanis, police estimated last summer that the current “Climate Summit” in Glasgow could cost up to £100 million Scottish media were reporting in September. COP26 will be the largest summit Britain has ever hosted, with up to 120 heads of state or government and 20,000 delegates expected. Better they stay home and organize for Operation Ibn Sina instead.
