  United Nations Security Council Resolution 1559 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On October 7, 2004 the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan reported to the Security Council regarding the lack of compliance with Resolution 1559.
The January 20, 2005 UN Secretary-General's report on Lebanon stated that "The continually asserted position of the Government of Lebanon that the Blue Line is not valid in the Shab'a farms area is not compatible with Security Council resolutions.
UN Secretary General Kofi Annan called on the Lebanese government "to extend its control over all its territory, to exert its monopoly on the use of force, and to put an end to all such attacks" [6].

 Al-Ahram Weekly | Opinion | Putting Prudence before posturing
The main assumption of UN Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 1559 is that Lebanon is a state under occupation, a country ripped asunder by militia.
Resolution 1559 is a political defeat for Syria, but it is Lebanon that is in immediate danger.
The resolution is legally questionable, as it involves a clear violation of Clause 7 of Article 2 (chapter I) of the UN Charter, which prohibits intervention in internal matters of UN member states except in cases defined in chapter VII.

 UN Resolution 1559 - The Boston Globe
In order to end what it saw as meddling in Lebanon's internal affairs by its neighbors, on Feb. 9, 2004, the UN Security Council passed resolution 1559, declaring its support for a free and fair presidential election in Lebanon without foreign interference and calling upon all remaining foreign forces to withdraw from Lebanon.
The resolution also called for the disbanding and disarmament of all militias, which prohibited the government from exerting its full sovereignty.
Resolution 1559 also called for implementation of previous resolutions concerning Lebanon's territorial integrity and political independence.

 Ain-Al-Yaqeen - March 24, 2006 - Article 6
The two sides discussed the implementation of Security Council resolution 1559, which calls for the strict respect of Lebanon's sovereignty and political independence, the withdrawal of foreign forces, and the disarming and disbanding of militias in the country, the statement said.
UN special envoy Terje Roed-Larsen lauded Lebanon as the only country in the region offering a "glimpse of hope" for establishing democracy in a currently "dangerous situation." Speaking from Beirut's airport upon his arrival in Lebanon, Larsen said, "For many years, the center of gravity in the region's politics was the Israeli-Arab conflict.
This recommendation came in a report he had submitted to the UN Security Council on Tuesday and concentrated on a report by the UN consultant Nicola Michael who was dispatched by Annan to Beirut in January this year for this purpose.

 United Nations Security Council Resolution 425 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
U.N. Security Council Resolution 425 was issued five days after the Israeli invasion to Lebanon on March 14, 1978 in what was referred to as Operation Litani.
The UN Secretary-General concluded that, as of June 16, 2000, Israel had indeed withdrawn its forces from Lebanon, in accordance with resolution 425 (1978).
Israel says, and the UN agrees, that Shebaa Farms is Syrian and not Lebanese, and therefore it is not included under resolution 425.

 The Road to UN Security Council Resolution 1559
Voted back in September by the highest international body and backed by a unanimous letter issued by the Presidency of the UN Security Council, 30 days later, this resolution has set the new context of Lebanon's future: that is free from all foreign forces and of armed militias.
However, the text that would become the model for resolution 1559 was touched and reshaped by members of the WLCU and ALC, including Jacksonville-based Attorney Joanne Fakhre as well as a behind the scene diplomat from Lebanese descent.
In summary, the road to UNSCR 1559 was a piece of art, diplomatic maze and perseverance on behalf of all those who took part in it.

The United States and France led the Secrity Council in passing Resolution 1559 as a result of the extension of Emile Lahoud's presidency by three years, a step perceived as unacceptable Syrian intervention in Lebanese internal politics.
A comparison of the main points of the Taif Accord and those of Resolution 1559 shows that in principle there are no significant differences between the two documents regarding the main issues of the current internal Lebanese political and international agenda.
That is part of the detailed security program of the national reconciliation government, which is to be implemented within the period of one year with the objective of gradually spreading Lebanese sovereignty to all Lebanese territory.

Welcoming the confidence vote, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan pledged UN support for the new government and said he looked forward to implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1559.

Had UN resolutions on Lebanon been implemented, there would be no Hizballah rockets raining on Israeli civilians in Haifa, Nahariya, Safed, and Tiberias.
The chief goals are full implementation of UN Security Council resolutions that call for dismantling Hizballah and the deployment of the Lebanese Army along the Israeli-Lebanon border instead.

First of all, it is the United States that has prevented the UN Security Council from passing a resolution condemning the capture of the Israeli soldiers and the rocket attacks on Israel because of the threat to veto any resolution which is also critical of the Israeli attacks.

 Scoop: State Dept. Daily Press Briefing for March 30
All of us that are seized with this issue, and that includes the United States, the Secretary General, members of the Security Council, members of the countries in the region, are of one view, and that view is that 1559, Resolution 1559, should be implemented in all its parts.
1559 is clear, its benchmarks are clear, and that's how we will assess the results, not by statements of intent or partial moves or different -- where things are at different stages on different days.
Yesterday, as you may know, the Security Council passed, by a vote of 12 in favor with 3 abstentions, Security Council Resolution 1591, which provides for expanded sanctions and other measures that put pressure on all parties to the Darfur conflict to end the violence and to abide by previous resolutions.

 The U.S.-French Draft UN Resolution on Lebanon: Strengths and Weaknesses - Dore Gold
In the UN system, a resolution being proposed to the Security Council is called a "draft resolution" until it is adopted; only then does it become a numbered resolution.
It should be noted that the draft resolution empowers Secretary-General Annan "to develop, in liaison with key international actors and the concerned parties, proposals" to implement UN resolutions like UN Security Council Resolution 1559 that calls for the disarmament of Lebanese militias.
This is not just a legal issue, for the draft resolution clearly traces the current crisis in Lebanon to Hizballah's attack on Israel on July 12, 2006, describing the abduction of Israeli solders as one of the "causes" of the conflict.

To secure passage, the resolution's sponsors removed mention of Syria from the resolution, though that is the occupying power that is referred to.
Similarly, though Hizbollah is the “militia” that is referred to, the sponsors could not mention it by name because of opposition from Council members.

Just as the UN Security Council was debating a US-French draft resolution that would place more pressures on Syria, the Quartet (the US, Russia, the EU and UN) issued an ultimatum to Syria, demanding it close down Palestinian Jihad offices in Damascus.
Resolution 1559 is being used to bludgeon Hizbollah while Al-Hariri's assassination is being used to force Damascus to change its policies.
After all, Al-Hariri was cooperating with France and the US and took part in the consultations leading up to 1559, a resolution that damaged the national interests of both Syria and Lebanon.

UN Security Council Resolution 1559 is, according to Hezbollah, nothing but foreign meddling in Lebanon 's affairs that takes place with Israel 's encouragement.

 ISN Security Watch - UN report shows Syria losing grip on Lebanon   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
ISN SECURITY WATCH (05/10/04) - As the UN prepares to discuss an unusually blunt report it released last Friday criticizing Syria for failing to respect Lebanon’s sovereignty, analysts and diplomats say that while sanctions against Syria are unlikely at this point, the status quo that has lasted for the past decade appears to be crumbling.
Last Friday, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan said that Syria had violated the US-French sponsored UN Security Council Resolution 1559, which calls on Syria to withdraw its forces from Lebanon and to dismantle all Lebanese and non-Lebanese armed groups.
Annan said that Lebanese officials had assured him of their intent to disarm all militias and terrorist groups, but also informed him that "the fragile security situation in the region, the risk to Lebanon's stability, and the lack of a comprehensive regional peace process would make it difficult to implement the resolution immediately and fully".

As international and internal pressure mounts against the Lebanese government - pushing for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1559 - sources in the Lebanese Foreign Ministry stressed Lebanon's fixed position on the matter Friday.
Speaking at the Elysee Palace Thursday, Chirac continued to push for the implementation of Resolution 1559 - which France co-endorsed with the U.S. - and stressed that the international community would be monitoring the elections in May. Chirac had made it clear in his statements Syria has to discontinue its tutelage over Lebanon.
