8 Feb 2024 – The United Nations Charter’s loopholes prevent the UN from the needed intervention to stop the world crimes reported: genocide, crimes against humanity, stealing Palestinian lands and homes, torture, killing/imprisoning journalists, apartheid, and more.

Global law and order may be possible if the UN General Assembly takes what action it can under the Charter, and also begins Charter Review under Article 109.  The UNGA should join forces with the World Constitution & Parliament Association whose Earth Constitution is ready to go.  It is ready to serve as a guide, model and authority for a “new UN” free of the burden of the undemocratic UN Security Council.

By bringing in the WCPA’s Earth Constitution for the Review, the UN General Assembly can become democratic, — no more a second class citizen at the UN.   It can adopt the EC’s World Judicial System and Enforcement,    free from the Security Council’s P-5’s veto which has protected the leaders of Bully nations violating international law.

Below a list of actions that the UN General Assembly can immediately do. My thanks to journalist Sam Husseini who reported on international lawyer Francis Boyle who believes that the UN General Assembly acting under the Uniting for Peace Resolution (1950) can:

  • Suspend Israel from participation in its activities as the General Assembly did to the former criminal apartheid regime in South Africa and to the genocidal Yugoslavia;
  • Set up an International Criminal Tribunal for Israel in order to prosecute its highest level civilian and military officials for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide;
  • Recommend economic sanctions against Israel to UN Member States;
  • Recommend UN Member States sever diplomatic relations with Israel;
  • Admit Palestine as a full-fledged UN Member State

Global law and order and democracy are absent and a glaring problem for the United Nations which too often is sidelined when it counts the most, unable to intervene when it is clearly needed.  Democracy is also absent at the UN.  The Earth Constitution provides new structures and authority which can make the UN more relevant, vibrant, and with the potential for justice and to end war itself.
