Gazan Catastrophe Shows Why the UN Needs the Earth Constitution

14 Dec 2023 – The United Nations has been unable to free the Palestinians from Israeli occupation, and it has been unable to stop the mass murder and destruction underway in Gaza. Israel, with weapons and money supplied by the U.S., states its goal is to eliminate Hamas but in practice is eliminating all that is Gazan.

Meanwhile, the UN General Assembly (UNGA) votes by a wide margin for a humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza. But Israel ignores the UNGA resolution. Because the UN is undemocratic, Israel has the “protection” of the U.S. which uses its permanent UN Security Council veto power to prevent UN intervention.

What must be done? We need a “new UN” designed for democratic rule. This is possible by the UNGA using Article 109-3 to launch a review of the obsolete UN Charter. The UNGA could utilize the Earth Constitution (EC) as a guide, model and authority to create a “new UN.” The EC, drafted by the World Constitution & Parliament Association, would establish a World Parliament with a House of Peoples, House of Nations, and House of Counselors.

Unlike the current UN, a “new UN” established under the Earth Constitution would have a well-designed World Judicial System with real authority. The EC contains enforceable law and order which is absent in the present UN. No longer could the leaders of Bully nations ignore world law and commit world crimes with impunity. If Israeli leaders (with the help of the U.S.) are committing genocide against the Palestinians, then they could be held accountable under the Law.
