The UN and the Middle East Tensions
The majority of the countries of the world want an end to these crimes, and are using different methods to achieve this. The need to end this violence is such that on 20 November 2015, the UN Security Council issued a resolution, calling on all countries to do their utmost to fight against terrorism, and called for ISIL safe havens in Iraq and Syria to be destroyed; because this terror group intends to repeat attacks similar to Paris and Beirut. In two months, ISIL conducted 10 terror attacks in three continents and 6 countries (Lebanon, Egypt, Bangladesh, Yemen, Turkey and France), and crimes continue to be committed, before the world's eyes, against women, children, civilians and minorities in Iraq and Syria.
The Paris attacks, bombings against ISIL by France and Russia, the shooting of Russian jet by Turkey and the probable revenge attacks of Russia, have all complicated the situation in the region, to such an extent that some analysts even predict the beginning of the Third World War.
The thing that is as horrifying as ISIL attacks is that countries of the world might resort to violation of international law, with each one wanting to take charge of the situation. Although with its inhuman methods ISIL has violated international law, and all rules of war, but there is no doubt that these international laws are very important, because for the improvement of the world we do not have any other universal principles so that by relying on them and observing them we work towards a single model for the improvement of the world. Now, more than ever before it is necessary for the UN to play a serious role for the removal of all current problems, and to help get credibility for its status as a powerful body that defends human rights at the right time. It is this way that member states can trust the UN and observe international human rights principles more than before.
It is necessary for the Security Council, which has been accused of political stances, to take this opportunity and to prove its impartiality as a body that supports peace, security and human rights, and to step towards the further credibility of the UN in the establishment of lasting peace in tomorrow's world, so that the next generation of Mankind is not forced to shoulder the burden of the consequences of current mistakes.
