The UN general secretary has proposed that Israel be kicked out of the UN yet MSN has not reported this news. It is a decision that can be made by the
UN as an organisation which means it does not need to be approved by the Security Council.
Ordinarily, a motion to expel a member nation would have to come at the recommendation of the Security Council, but this is not an ordinary motion.
Because Israel is in violation of its terms of admission, it is not a member in good standing, so the UN has every right to declare General Assembly
Resolution 273 null and void. Since Israel’s membership depends on adherence to that resolution, its expulsion is automatic.
If this matter was put to the Security Council, the US would automatically caste a veto against the will of the world and force the presence of Israel
amongst the representatives of the civilised nations.
Israel, as it currently stands, is incompatible with peace, cooperation and justice. It is violent state prone to routine belligerency and lethal acts
againsts the Palestinians and citizens of other nations.
Its legacy of Operation Caste Lead, named after a child's toy reliant upon chance, was a throw of the dice for Israel when it decided to lay siege to
Gaza using total war. While this act of war against a captive population could only end in one way for the Palestinians, I take the view that it was a
calculated attempt by Israel to extend the tolerance of violence in the international community.
This gamble, for Israel, was a test to evaluate world reaction. Had the governments of the world and world citizens remained silent, Israel may well
have escalated its activities to extraordinary levels. Even though governments remained silent, people took to the streets forcing the hand of our
leaders to intercede and beg Israel to stop killing the Palestinians.
