Resolution on Iraq

WHEREAS, over a decade after the Gulf War, President Saddam Hussein of Iraq continues to be a major threat to American allies in the Middle East, including Israel, as well as to the United States and the Western world;

WHERAS, Iraq continues to develop and stockpile unconventional weapons, including chemical and biological warfare;

WHERAS, Iraq continues to be a state sponsor of terrorism, providing bases for numerous terrorist organizations. Iraq also encourages terrorist attacks against Israel by providing money to the families of suicide bombers;

WHEREAS, Iraq has repeatedly ignored and contravened United Nations Security Council resolutions and thwarted attempts by weapons inspectors to have access to facilities where weapons might be developed and stockpiled;

WHEREAS, over a decade ago, the international community came together in a coalition to remove the Iraqi army from Kuwait and end Iraqi belligerency. As Saddam Hussein continues his dangerous and unpredictable actions, it is clear that the campaign undertaken by the Gulf War coalition has yet to be completed; Therefore be it

RESOLVED, that the Anti-Defamation League supports the United States Government in its effort to stop Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's development of weapons of mass destruction and to end the danger he poses to the stability and safety of the region and world through unfettered international inspection of all facilities and by military action if necessary; be it further

RESOLVED, that the Anti-Defamation League calls on the United Nations and the international community to support the United States Government in countering the threat posed by Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.

The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
