  UN Security Council Resolution 242 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The resolution is the formula proposed by the Security Council for the successful resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict, in particular, ending the state of belligerency then existing between Egypt, Jordan and Syria versus Israel.
The resolution's most important feature is the "land for peace" formula, calling for Israeli withdrawal from territories it had occupied in 1967 in exchange for peace with its neighbors.
The UN resolution, however, did serve as a basis for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations (Palestinians being represented by the PLO) that led to the Oslo Accords.

 UN Security Council Resolution 1441 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On the other hand, the USA and Britain, while admitting that such a resolution was diplomatically desirable, insisted that Iraq had now been given enough time (noting also the time since the first disarmament resolutions of 1991) to disarm or provide evidence thereof, and that war was legitimized by 1441 and previous UN resolutions.
The resolution text was drafted jointly by the United States and the UK, the result of eight weeks of tumultuous negotiations, particularly with Russia and France.
Although the Iraqi parliament voted against honoring the UN resolution, Iraqi President Saddam Hussein agreed to honor it.

UN membership is open to all "peace-loving states" that accept the obligations of the UN Charter and, in the judgment of the organization, are able and willing to fulfil these obligations.
The 1945 UN Charter envisaged a system of regulation that would ensure "the least diversion for armaments of the world's human and economic resources." The advent of nuclear weapons came only weeks after the signing of the Charter and provided immediate impetus to concepts of arms limitation and disarmament.
UN peace operations are funded by assessments, using a formula derived from the regular scale, but including a surcharge for the five permanent members of the Security Council (who must approve all peacekeeping operations); this surcharge serves to offset discounted peacekeeping assessment rates for less developed countries.

 UN Security Council resolutions relating to Iraq
Earlier drafts of this resolution are as follows: the US/UK drafts of 2 October 2002, 25 October 2002 and 5 November 2002; the Russian draft and the French draft of 23 October 2002.
The subsequent exchange of letters between the UN and Iraq, agreeing to the continuation of the programme under the terms of this resolution, is dated 5 July 2001.
In effect, this resolution reassigns some of the practical responsibility for monitoring compliance with sanctions away from the UN machinery, in the form of the 661 committee, and to the States imposing the naval blockade.

The resolution is the formula proposed by the Security Council for the successful resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict, in particular, Israel's mutual belligerency with Egypt, Jordan and Syria.
The resolution's most important feature is the "land for peace" formula, which implies Israeli withdrawal from territories it has captured in exchange for normalization and achieving peace agreements with its neighbors.
This was one of the declared reasons why PLO didn't accept the resolution until 1988; another was the refusal to recognize Israel's right to exist in accord with the Khartoum Resolution of September 1, 1967.

 SECURITY COUNCIL DEMANDS SUDAN DISARM MILITIAS IN DARFUR, ADOPTING RESOLUTION 1556 (2004) BY VOTE OF 13–0–2
Unanimously adopting resolution 1547 (2004), the Council declared its readiness to consider establishing such an operation to aid implementation of a peace agreement, and requested the Secretary-General to submit to the Council recommendations for the size, structure, and mandate of that operation, as soon as possible after the signing of the agreement.
To that end, he was satisfied that the resolution contained strong and unequivocal support for and endorsement of the  African Union’s leadership role and the various dimensions of its engagement in Darfur, including humanitarian, military and political, with the deployment of monitors and a protection force.
 He stressed that the measures mentioned in the resolution were also directed at the Janjaweed and the rebels.  The resolution highlighted the leadership role of the African Union in the region, thereby stressing the regional approach.

 UN Resolution 194
The resolution does not specify the nationality of the refugees; recall that the Palestinian Arab refugees, who voluntarily left Israel at the urging of their leaders, are approximately equal in number to the Jews who fled persecution from Arab countries.
Since the resolution also specifies that its recommendations would apply to refugees who wish "to live at peace with their neighbors," Arabs would be excluded.
Therefore, any ultimate resolution of this issue will certainly be in terms of limited return (perhaps limited to the few living Arabs who actually once resided in Israel) plus a forumula of compensation for both Arabs and Jews who were displaced by events surrounding the 1948 War of Independence.

 JURIST - O'Connell: UN Resolution 1441 - Compelling Saddam, Restraining Bush
The argument is that the ceasefire resolution, 687 (1991), and subsequent resolutions all tie back to the one resolution, 678 (1990), which did explicitly authorize the use of force to oust Iraq from Kuwait and establish peace in the region.
Under the UN Charter, states may only use force in individual or collective self-defense in the face of an armed attack or with the authorization of the Security Council when the Council finds a threat or breach of international peace[12].
Hans Blix, the chief UN weapons inspector, has said a delay of as little as 30 minutes in allowing access will result in a report, as will four flat tires, though not one flat tire[13].

 The Meaning of Resolution 242
On November 22, 1967, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 242, establishing the principles that were to guide the negotiations for an Arab-Israeli peace settlement.
This is also the implication of Resolution 338, according to Arthur Goldberg, the American ambassador who led the delegation to the UN in 1967.
It took nearly a quarter century, but the PLO finally agreed that Resolutions 242 and 338 should be the basis for negotiations with Israel when it signed the Declaration of Principles in September 1993.

 UN Resolution Equating Zionism and Racism
The UN General Assembly passed the one-sided Resolution 194, calling for repatriating or compensating Palestinian refugees (not a "right of return") while ignoring an equal or greater number of Jewish refugees from Arab countries.
The subsequant failure of the UN to pressure the Arab states to negotiate with Israel based on UN Resolution 242 further eroded Israel's faith in the world body as a viable source of stability and assistance.
In 1974, when the UN General Assembly invited Yaser Arafat to address the body, and in 1975 granted the PLO "observer status", the first time any non-nation was give such recognition or standing.

 ReliefWeb » Document Preview » Sudan says UN resolution jeopardizes Darfur peace efforts
According to a statement from the Sudanese Embassy in Nairobi, Khartoum vehemently rejected a resolution vowing to try culprits outside the country as "unfair and ill-timed" insisting that the Sudanese judiciary was capable of trying all individuals suspected of war crimes in war-ravaged western region of Darfur.
"The UN resolution is in direct disregard to all international norms and the ongoing constructive efforts exerted by the African Union (AU) in collaboration with Sudan government that has significantly stabilized the situation in the region," the statement said.
A UN panel prepared a list of some 50 suspects it submitted to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan who subsequently passed it on to the ICC in what amounts to a kick-off of the process leading to trial of suspects in the Darfur saga.

 UNODC - Terrorism Definitions
Terminology consensus would, however, be necessary for a single comprehensive convention on terrorism, which some countries favour in place of the present 12 piecemeal conventions and protocols.
If terrorism is defined strictly in terms of attacks on non-military targets, a number of attacks on military installations and soldiers' residences could not be included in the statistics.
In order to cut through the Gordian definitional knot, terrorism expert A. Schmid suggested in 1992 in a report for the then UN Crime Branch that it might be a good idea to take the existing consensus on what constitutes a "war crime" as a point of departure.

 Boston.com / News / World / UN resolution doesn't meet Kurds' demand
BAGHDAD -- The passage of a UN resolution on Iraq has drawn attention to hints from two main Kurdish parties that they might not participate in the new government if the UN measure failed to endorse an interim constitution, adopted in March, that guarantees Kurds certain rights.
The resolution adopted unanimously yesterday by the UN Security Council makes no mention of the Transitional Administration Law, which will serve as Iraq's temporary constitution after the new interim government takes power on June 30 and until a new constitution is written and approved in a referendum late next year.
A senior UN official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Times that US officials had rejected the Kurdish request because of concerns about offending Iraq's Shi'ite leaders.

 BreakPoint | A Victory for Life and Dignity
The resolution passed only after a long, hard fight—so long and hard that the final version was not quite as strong as we had hoped.
UN declarations, even nonbinding ones, have some moral force; the UN’s Universal Declaration on Human Rights was arguably one of the more influential documents of the twentieth century.
Coming from the UN, an organization that is not generally known for its respect for human dignity, that’s a victory worth celebrating.

A draft UN resolution on Iraq's future submitted by Britain and the United States needs improving, anti-war countries have said.
Earlier on Tuesday, French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier said the UN draft must be improved if it were to ensure a credible handover of sovereignty to the Iraqi people.
Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Russia's parliament on Tuesday that the mission of the UN special envoy to Iraq offers the opportunity to "discover if there is agreement in Iraqi society, to what extent the (new) government is seen as legitimate in Iraqi society and in the eyes of Iraq's neighbors, which is also important".
