Can't have one rule for one (Iraq) and one for another (Israel), the World won't work that way.
You are running offtopic..... but here is something old - which I think is new for you:
There's no comparison between Iraq's refusal to comply with UN security council resolutions and Israel's refusal to do so
The UN distinguishes between two sorts of Security Council resolution
. Those passed under
deal with the peaceful resolution of disputes and entitle the council to make non-binding recommendations
give the council broad powers to take action, including warlike action
, to deal with “threats to the peace, breaches of
the peace, or acts of aggression”.
Resolutions under Chapter Seven, binding on all UN members, were used against Iraq.
None of the resolutions relating to the Israeli-Arab conflict comes under Chapter Seven
- and put it simply:
It is impossible to break non-binding recommendations
