--S.J.Res.246-- S.J.Res.246 One Hundred First Congress of the United States of America AT THE SECOND SESSION Begun and held at the City of Washington on Tuesday, the twenty-third day of January, one thousand nine hundred and ninety Joint Resolution Calling upon the United Nations to repeal General Assembly Resolution 3379. Whereas the United Nations will celebrate the forty-fifth anniversary of its charter on June 26, 1990; Whereas Article I of the United Nations Charter establishes the United Nations as `a center for harmonizing the actions of nations'; Whereas on November 10, 1990, fifteen years will have passed since the adoption of United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379 which formally declared Zionism to be `a form of racism and racial discrimination'; Whereas Zionism is a national movement of the Jewish people for self-determination, a legitimate and moral aspiration characteristic of many national groups in the modern world; Whereas United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379 has had as its overt purpose the delegitimation of the State of Israel; Whereas United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379 has impeded the struggle against real forms of racial bigotry and has had the incendiary effect of stimulating and encouraging anti-semitism; Whereas United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379 has been used to justify terrorist attacks against innocent people; Whereas United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379 is violative of the principles of the United Nations Charter and makes it impossible for the General Assembly to play a credible role in the peaceful resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict; and Whereas Public Laws 99-90 (S.J. Res. 98, 1985) and 100-169 (S.J. Res. 205, 1987) and earlier expressions of congressional concern bearing on this subject demonstrate that the United States condemns, denounces, and repudiates United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That-- (1) the United States calls upon all member states of the United Nations General Assembly to take immediate action to repeal United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379; (2) the President shall periodically report to the Congress on progress made toward the repeal of United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379; and (3) the Congress commends the President for his commitment to achieving this goal. Speaker of the House of Representatives. Vice President of the United States and President of the Senate.
