United Nations Tries Again For Peace

The United Nations will meet today to vote on yet another ceasefire in Gaza. This comes after members Egypt and Mauritania invoked UN Resolution 377 ‘Uniting for Peace.’

Resolution 377 allows the UN to take action if there is an indication that the UN Security Council may have failed to “exercise its primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security.” The failed vote for a ceasefire last weekend was that indication.

What does this mean? It means that the UN could adopt a resolution to demand a ceasefire but it does not mean that Israel would then have to do it. Recall that the UN never voted to allow the U.S. to attack Iraq but they did it anyway.
