Position Paper for the Security Council The Issues before the Security Council are: Topic Area

1: The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict The United States of America have always been a staunch supporter of Israel . Since 1991,the United States have led Peace Initiatives co-sponsored by Russia. Between 1992 and 1996 Israel has been invited to numerous conferences held in Arab countries as a sign of its neighbours goodwill. But since the Likud Party government came into power, Israel will not commit itself to the peace accords signed by the previous Israeli governments. As we know a majority of countries in the Middle East have been U.S. Allies throughout the Cold War to the present including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, the UAE, Oman, Yemen, Egypt to name a few. Furthermore some of US’s top aid recipients are Israel, Egypt and Jordan. Note: 18 billion dollars promised from 2009-2018 and 2.55 billion in year 2009 itself . USA has tried and failed to secure Israeli settlement freeze, but this cannot be possible without Israel’s nod to the matter can it? Over the years we have seen Israel disobeying the UN and its member’s votes, like the feud over the water aquifers of the Holy lands of Jerusalem, in which Israel drew a physical barrier, overthrowing the Decision of International Court of Justice. USA feels that supporting Israel, notwithstanding the rash decisions the previous govt.’s of Israel have taken, because unlike the Palestinian who responded back in terms of, what we call, “acts of terrorism”, Israeli’s have stood by their government abiding their rules and not taking the matter into their hand. Topic Area 2 : The Iran Nuclear Program
