JERUSALEM, Israel—A conservative group called The International Leaders’ Summit is calling for a new international alliance to replace the United Nations, weaken Iran and fight terrorism. And they want its headquarters to be in Jerusalem.

Co-founded by Joel Anand Samy and Natasha Srdoc, the International Leaders’ Summit is an independent think tank that spearheaded a coalition of what it calls “principled leaders” from the US and other countries “to strengthen the rule of law (and) advance economic freedom…to secure peace through strength.”

The group is calling for the creation and convening of a new “Rule of Law and Security Council.”

“As we experience the regular fallout from the UN and other multilateral groups advancing a narrative which is anti-US and anti-Israel, our leadership believe it is vitally important to replace the failing institutions with (an) entity safeguarding the rule of law and our freedoms,” Anand Samy told CBN News in a written communication.

 According to Anand Samy, it will be “vitally important” to engage India, which sent 2 million soldiers to help Allied forces defeat Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan, and Italy.

“India's major military force in Asia and large economy will assist the US and Western democracies to address Islamic forces in Pakistan/Afghanistan, to play a new role in weakening Iran, and establish a key pillar to holding to account an adversarial China (on cyber-security and hard power),” Anand Samy said.

“For decades, US leaders have been on the defensive in addressing America's first principles when it comes to the UN and other groups’ reluctance to stand with Israel and other key initiatives,” he said.

In its charter, The Council of The Rule of Law, Economic Strength and Security says its guiding principles are to: 1) strengthen the rule of law - protecting life, liberty, free speech, and private property;  2. expand markets, advance free enterprise and trade, and boost economic growth; 3) and secure peace through strength.

Among the key challenges it plans to address are: combatting terror with a focus on cutting off terrorism financing and money laundering; create a cyber-security alliance; and address the challenges of mass migration from the Middle East, Africa and the Americas.

“We believe that having America, Britain, India, Estonia, Germany, joined by Israel and select (British) Commonwealth nations as charter members, will present a 21st century solution to addressing immediate and long-term security challenges and the weakening of the rule of law, which we witness across the world,” Anand Samy said.
