Israel plans bid for UN Security Council seat

Western diplomats expect it to be a hard sell, given the antipathy of most members of the non-aligned nations bloc to Israel.

Israel plans to run for a rotating seat on the United Nations Security Council for 2019-2020, the country's UN Ambassador Ron Prosor said on Thursday. It will be the first time Israel has put itself in contention for a Security Council seat.
Winning a seat requires a two-thirds majority in the 193-nation General Assembly. Candidates are proposed by the five regional groups, but election to the council is done by the full assembly.

Prosor said Israel will be vying against Germany and Belgium for the one of the two seats allotted to the Western European and Others Group. Technically Israel should be a member of the Asia-Pacific Group, along with the other states in the Middle East, but predominantly Muslim states have blocked its admission to that group.
In 2000, Israel was admitted to the Western European and Others Group, which includes the United States, on a temporary basis. In 2004 its membership in that group was permanently renewed.

Israel has occasionally held the post of vice-president of the UN General Assembly, but it has never been a member of the Security Council, the most powerful and prestigious body at the UN, with the authority to impose sanctions or authorize the use of military force to enforce its decisions.

Securing a council seat will not be easy, Western diplomats said. Most members of the 120 non-aligned bloc of developing nations are either cool or openly hostile towards Israel. General Assembly votes on issues related to Israel and the 
Palestinians are usually unfavorable for Israel.

Nevertheless, Prosor was upbeat about the bid, saying, "We're going all out to win. It's about time."

There are 10 rotating Security Council members, who serve for two years at a time. Five rotating members are replaced each year. The five permanent veto-wielding members are the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China.
General Assembly elections for next year's Security Council will be on October 17. 

COMMENT:

The world community of nations must vow not to vote for human torturing terrorist states alleged of committing crime against humanity on daily basis and on the other hand committal of genocide and indicted but yet not taken up for trail by ICC.

Of course, all the super powers are earnestly requested to obstruct such notorious terrorist states like Israel and India form getting seats in the Security Council ever until they surrender their undeclared WMDS and face pending trial for committing genocide. As both are committal of Crime Against Humanity which they cannot deny to have committed and Case of India the case is pending in INDIA's SUPREME COURT for more than two decades and in case of Israel with Human Rights commission pending arrest and trail by ICC for over one decade.

If these two countries are not bared then it will invariably defame UN and the entire World Community of Nations would lose faith on the organization. These two country's track records are highly questionable and needs to be told flat on their face that to be member of UN security council they are to improve their questionable activities and conduct permanently to commensurate with the required activities and standard  needed to become member of UN security council.

It is requested by all World Community of Nations to all super powers without any exception to ensure these two countries are barred from becoming member of the Security Council. Of course, until Israel  solves Palestinian dispute as per UN charter and UN Security Council resolutions passed from time to time. But unfortunately Israel used those resolution as  toilet papers. And India to  stop killing innocents and solve the Kashmir  dispute on amicable negotiation with Pakistan under the supervision of the super powers within 2014. then these countries maybe allowed.

These two countries are not only threat and killing of the innocents but also to the above mentioned disputes that poses threat to the world peace and may ignite WW III. By allowing these two countries to be members of the security council it would be nothing but allow to prolong the solution of the disputes and kill more innocents committing genocide on daily basis. That would put the world under continuous threat of WW III.
