Israel Applying For UN Security Council

[Media Source*]

(Jerusalem Post) Ambassador to the UN Dan Gillerman formally submitted Israel's application to the Security Council as part of the UN's Western European and Others Group (WEOG) Regional Group. Each year WEOG sends two of its 29 countries to the Security Council. The next available slot will open only in 2019.

As shocking as this may sound, this is Israel's first attempt at applying for a position at an institution long known for condemning the Jewish state. Israel seems to be encouraged by Ariel Sharon's visit to the United Nations in which it was welcomed with open arms due to the Gaza withdrawal. If Israel is able to win a seat on the Security Council, it would signify greater acceptance around the world, especially within their own region.

(Jerusalem Post) In another Israeli first at the UN, an Israeli-sponsored resolution will be brought for a vote before the UN General Assembly in either late October or early November. The resolution calls for the establishment of a UN-mandated Holocaust Memorial Day to be held each year on January 27, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

Although it is doubtful that nations such as Iran and Saudi Arabia would agree to this resolution, the proposed idea should have been adopted earlier as its delay certainly reveals the hostility felt against the Jewish state in the world community. President Bush will probably push for this resolution, which will hopefully find support from Chirac and Tony Blair as well (not to mention Annan too).
