18
19   Recalling that the United States Congress recently granted China Most Favored Nation

11          homeland in Palestine, and
12
13   Aware of the claims and rights of both the Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank and
14         the rest of Palestine, and
15
16   Recognizing the growing hatred between these two groups of people, and

10   Fully aware of the current emphasis placed on nuclear deterrence by countries possessing
11          nuclear arms, and
12
13   Alarmed by the threat that a rogue spear would pose to all countries.
14         Note: Nuclear deterrence is the fact that the threat of nuclear retaliation prevents
15                other countries from firing nuclear weapons. A rogue spear is a nuclear
16                weapon that has been stolen and could possibly be detonated.
17
18   Noting with deep concern the threat of a depressed trajectory shot poses to cities
19          positioned near oceans, specifically Washington D.C. in America.
20          Note: A depressed trajectory shot refers to the war-game scenario in which an
21                  enemy nuclear submarine approaches the shore and fires a nuclear missile
22                  at a city.
23
24   Be It Hereby Resolved That The General Assembly:
25
26   1. Requests the proliferation of all nuclear weapons.
27
28   2. Further requests that the members of the United Nations place a ban on all future
29      nuclear weapons.

 9
10   Aware of the tumultuous history between the Israelites and Palestinians, and
11
12   Noting with regret the unchanging attitudes and relations between these two countries in
13          the past decades, and
14
15   Convinced that many innocent people have been killed in the fighting due to fighting in
16         populous areas of the country, and
17
18   Recognizing that the global community has criticized the actions of Israel and Palestine
19         by trying to set up cease-fire agreements and treaties.
20
21   Be It Hereby Resolved That the General Assembly:
22
23   1. Request the governments of Israel and Palestine end fighting in Israel by coming to
24      some type of treaty or agreement.
25
26   2. Urge the leaders of each country to meet with United Nations officials and resolve the
27      issues that have led to the bloodshed.
28
29   3. Urge the members of the international community and the United Nations to provide
30      Israel and Palestine with help and guidance in resolving their conflicts.

 9
10   Whereas our country of Afghanistan is in dire need of economic development for the
11        betterment of our suffering peoples, and
12
13   Whereas one of the only resources our nation has available for economic development is
14        poppy plants, and
15
16   Whereas the government of Afghanistan is trying to eradicate the poppy crop, but
17
18   Whereas it is only undesirable elements within the Afghani population engaged in the
19        drug trade, and
20
21   Whereas the community of nations has consistently discriminated against the suffering
22        people of Afghanistan by imposing economic sanctions on our government, not
23        on the elements engaged in the illegal drug trade in poppy plants as our chief
24        economic resource,
25
26   Be It Hereby Resolved that the General Assembly:
27
28   1. Acknowledges that the economic sanctions imposed on Afghanistan were done so
29      unfairly, improperly and without punishing the proper parties, and
30
31   2. Calls upon all other member nations to end all economic sanctions against the country
32      of Afghanistan.

 8   Date:                  November 18, 2000
 9
10   Concerned that this Ebola outbreak, previously said to have been contained by health
11         officials, is actually spreading, and now has caused at least 1 confirmed death in
12         the southern region of the country, and
13
14   Noting Article twenty-five of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states
15          that everyone has a right to a standard of living that is adequate for the health and
16          well-being of himself and of his family. Including food, clothing, housing and
17          medical care, and
18
19   Realizing the large amounts of money Uganda is losing to due a sharp decrease in
20          tourism and other related industries due to the scare over this outbreak, and
21
22   Expecting this outbreak to only get worse without more effort at containment, and
23
24   Noting with deep concern that Uganda does not have the proper facilities to contain this
25          outbreak,
26
27   Be It Hereby Resolved That The General Assembly:
28
29   1. Requests that the U.N. provide a core volunteer team a doctors, nurses, and advisors
30      to go to Uganda to help train and assist local health professionals in combating and
31      containing this deadly outbreak.
32
33   2. Urges member countries to donate skilled personnel, medicine, and medical
34      equipment should they be able to afford it.
35
36   3. Considers setting up a research station in Uganda to better combat the virus, now, and
37      in future outbreaks, wherever they may occur.

10   Recognizing the potential of nuclear weapons to demolish humankind, and
11
12   Fearing that same immense power, and therefore
13
14   Wishing for all nations to reduce their capability of wreaking such destruction, yet
15
16   Cognizant that nuclear capability is an effective deterrent of conflict, and
17
18   Whereas the development of missile defense systems to protect a nation threatens to
19         negate that deterrent, as nations with such systems could potentially deploy
20         nuclear attacks with impunity, and therefore
21
22   Alarmed at the threat such development thus poses to world security,
23
24   Be it hereby resolved by the Security Council:
25
26   1. To insist that Member States of the United Nations cease all attempts to develop
27      systems of national missile defense.
28
29   2. To call upon all Member States to refrain from such development in the future.
30
31   3. To enforce clauses 1 and 2 by forbidding all violators from participating in the
32      workings of the Security Council in any way as long as they stand in violation.
33
34   4. To punish violators on whom clause 3 has no impact by calling upon all Member
35      States to refrain from trade with them.
36
37   5. To reserve the ability to revoke or alter the punishments described in clauses 3 and 4,
38      but only by unanimous vote of the Council.
39
40   6. To receive allegations of violation submitted by any Member State.
41
42   7. To establish the validity of such an allegation by debate and a simple majority vote in
43      which no Council Members have veto power,
44
45   8. To put this resolution into effect on January 1, 2001.
