An Open Letter to MUN and School Directors
********************************************


Students: Saja Fakral-Deen, Hamad Al-Essa, Khaled Al-Rubei, and Khaled Shahroor Event: Pearl-MUN 2004 Attention: MUN-Directors, Would-Be MUN Directors, Debate Coaches, Drama Directors From: Al-Bayan Bilingual School Regarding: Pearl-MUN 2002

Al-Bayan Bilingual School (BBS) will, once again host Pearl-MUN, an invitational Model United Nations event on May 19th-20th.

Pearl-MUN features a GA (General Assembly), an Iraqi Governing Council (IGC), an ICJ (International Court of Justice), and a Security Council.

The Security Council will offer a challenge to even the most experienced MUN students. Not only will it consider the usual list of Security Council situations, but it will also have its own Security Crisis. Crisis situations include imperfect information, "special guest stars," and real-time events.

Pearl-MUN continues to offer the only International Court of Justice in Kuwait. Again, suitable for the most advanced MUN students, the ICJ will try two cases actually on the docket for the real court. Past ICJ cases have included some of the foremost debate students in Kuwait as attorneys.

For the first time, Peal-MUN will feature an exciting Iraqi Governing Council. This exciting forum, geared to experienced students, replicates the current body ruling Iraq will make decisions on real problems occuring in Iraq, elect its own leadership, and rotate its own chairing.

Pearl-MUN also includes some other features that distinguish it. For example, the chairs give awards for best delegates and "most charismatic," and everyone gets a certificate. This year, Pearl-MUN will invite students to apply for deputy and co-chair positions within the event.

BBS would like to extend a special welcome to non-KFSAC schools and to others new to Model United Nations. With Pearl-MUN's practice sessions, support materials, etc., Pearl-MUN can serve as your doorway to Model United Nations.

This event can only accomodate about 150 students. Therefore, interested schools should reply quickly by emailing to:

Daniel R. Fruit,

BBS MUN Director

GA Countries
********************************************

Pearl-MUN 2004 featured the largest general assembly in the event's history. This led to a very volatile and exciting group of sessions from Wednesday to Thursday.

The GA opened its sessions with Wednesday's lobbying and merging session. A number of main submitters emerged with a large number of well-supported resolutions reaching the chairs (click here to read all the resolutions sucessfully submitted). This day ended with opening speeches, punctuated by Spain's rather roucous opening speech and many rights of reply concentrating on praising rather than attacking other nations.

The GA debated four resolutions in very active sessions. While the South Korean resolution on Weapons of Mass Detruction failed by some margin, that of the United States overwhelmingly passed. Meanwhile, despite Sudan's persuasive presentation and authentic costume, its resolution on Those Displaced for Religious and Cultural Reasons failed by a single vote perhaps because Sudan is, itself, displacing people. Finally, Bangladesh's resolution, one of many realistically submitted on the topic of Generic Drugs, passed by a wide margin showing the poor nation's much greater interest in this topic.

While many raised their placards to participate, sadly several delegates received their third warning resulting their expulsion. While Khaled Al-Rubei, Governor-General in charge of the GA, read the emergency situation in this forum, the Greek and Turkish ambassadors spend most of their time in the SC. Amna Al-Sager and Nasser Al-Aujan supervised this active very active session (click here to read all relevant documents).

********************************************
Security Council Countries
********************************************

The Security Council debated a lot, but did not come to a lot of consensus, partly due to the amount of time spent on Crisis Situation and partly due to the difficult nature of the issues.

The SC session began by debating the current Iraq situation. True to form, France proposed a simple solution: withdraw all troops. This did generate a lot of conversation, but not much support. Instead the event revolved around a proposal from the newly socialized Spanish government. This resolution eventually passed.

The other two issues, Haiti and the Doctrine of Prevent Warfare, did not result in any clauses being passed. However, this was very realistic and countries accurately portrayed their countries' national position, as Governor-General for the SC, Hamad Al-Essa, accurately pointed out. To read the passed resolution (click here and read other relevant documents).

The Security Council also spent considerable effort on the Crisis Situation (below).

********************************************
The Emergency Situation
********************************************

The Emergency situation involved Europe's nightmare, a situation in which it actually must use the military force it wants to raise primarily for political reasons. The volatile region of Cyprus set off this chain events when, in reaction to the real-life failure of the UN referendum to reunite the island, a Northern Cypriot group set off a campaign of terror. The debate between Northern and Southern Cyprus accurately showed the real situation, the Southerners, which will join the EU either way, have no wish to end up "subsidizing" the North while the North feels extremely frustrated and isolated. Click (here to read about the situation.

The real threat in the background throughout the event lay in the EU's promise to send troops to route out the terrorists from the North and the North's refusal (backed by Turkish troops) to allow the troops to land in Cyprus or, as one expects, to cross the border. Greece, a victim of the terrorist action, naturally supported Cyprus while Turkey supported its etnic brethren.

The best-layed efforts of all countries in the SC could not finally solve this crisis. Cyprus remained recalcitrant to merging with the North. The US tried to make the EU troops land under a UN flag, presumably with US troops as a restraining impluse while Spain tried to work out some kind of a deal between the Cypruses. Several EU countries, such as Romania, needed to consider the depth of their committment to the EU and, more specifically, to France and Germany's goal of an independent (i.e. not under American control) military and whether they'd send troops.

When all attempts at compromise failed, this led to suprizing results, as documented below. This relates to Clausewitz's often misunderstood comments, "Warfare is the extension of diplomacy by other means," which more accurately translates as "Warfare is the failure of diplomacy."

********************************************
The International Court of Justice
********************************************

The International Court of Justice Case, again, presented a logical extension of today's headline events. Recently a book came out asserting that the current president of Rwanda, a Tutsi, ordered the downing of the plane of the previous president and thereby setting off the famous genocide that killed his own ethnic brethren. An independent French judge came to much the same conclusion. Meanwhile, the son of Burundi's former president, slain on the same plane, also blamed Kagame. Kagama angrily denounced the French and the US. In the ICJ case, Kagame and Rwanda took the additional step of taking these nations to court and suing them for their parts in the genocide. Click (here to read about the case.

Rwanda presented a powerful case against France, clearly showing the France in spirit and actions, had betrayed several international agreements and passively, if not actively, aided the genocides. It also attempted to prove that the United States could have prevented millions from dying but purposely did nothing, hiding behind claims of ignorance.

The other countries responded with spirited defenses of their own. France concentrated on showing Kagame's own guilty past, reiterating much of the evidence that surfaced in the French trial. The USA followed France in highlighting Kagame's history as well as giving evidence that blamed the UN for not calling the killings a "genocide." Burundi's defense concentrated on some of the more humorous aspects of the case.

The Court largely ruled with Rwanda, giving it most of the things that it sought in coming to the Court. However, Kagame did not escape censure. To read the results of the case click (here to read about the case.

********************************************
The Iraqi Governing Council
********************************************


The Iraqi Governing Council presented a one of a kind experience to seasoned MUN veterans. Unlike the other forums, IGC representatives portrayed individuals on the Council, a format common to some other events, such as Yale-MUN. Unlike these other forums, though, the students, some of them graduates, represented a Council soon to pass into history whose agenda literally came from the day's headlines.

The IGC debated the leadership model and emerged with a presidential "trio" of Ahmed Chelabi, Abdulaziz Al-Hakim, and Jalal Talabani. The trio would, by necessity, cast its votes together, resulting in a much stronger chance of a majority vote. This trio, a militia leader, an ambitious politician, and Kurdish nationalist worked better together than hoped. The group also, after much thought, wrote a plan for privatizing the oil industry.

The security issue, however, weighed most heavily on everyone's minds. A real life IGC member died during the sessions. The group passed a resolution that effectively brought the various militias into the new national army, a solution under exploration today. To punctuate this situation, assassins attempted to kill Ahmad Chelabi. His eventual return, in bandages, after a stay in an Iranian hospital, showed the real dangers of working in the IGC and Chelabi's real life switch of alliances.

The Awards Ceremony
********************************************

Unlike other events in Kuwait, Pearl-MUN honored some individuals for oustanding performaces.

The Security Council recognized outstanding delegates in the United States (Dheidan Al-Shammari) and Romania (Fahed Al-Rushaid). Spain's delegate, whose clauses Hamad Al-Essa described as "the best he'd ever seen," Ahmad Al-Joan, won the outstanding delegate award.

The International Court of Justice recognized Navneeth Khashaba for her performance and Altaf Al-Dukair as the outstanding advocate. It also largely awarded the case to Rwanda (Altaf Al-Dukair and Fatema Boukhadour).

The IGC recognized PDK leader Massoud Barzani (Zooman Al-Mesbah) and Turkoman advocate Sondul Chapouk (Robin George Abraham) for their performances and Abulaziz Al-Hakim (Assousi) as best of the rotating presidents. It honored Talabani (Sidra Shahid) as its outstanding delegate. Saja Fakral-Deen served as Paul Bremer, head of the American administration and periodic administrator over the IGC.
