JASTA and the third world war is a book by author Professor Kamil Idris that was published in 2017. With dedication and experience, Kamil Idris is a former Director-General of the UN’s World Intelectual Property Agency (WIPO) and is the current president of the International Court of Arbitration and Mediation (ICAM). He has had a long career and worked with many World leaders such as President Bill Clinton, Fidel Castro and Yasser Arafat to name a few. Promoting American ingenuity he was welcomed by Congress and was appointed to be the Director-General for another six-year term.
Kamil Idris warns about the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) and how it is going to remove international sovereignty laws. JASTA would give American people the right to sue any foreign country for sponsoring terrorism or housing terrorists knowingly. This bill was vetoed by President Barak Obama but still managed to get passed in 2016. The French and Saudi ministries have voiced concerns about violating international laws and possibly damaging democracy itself and causing nationalist backlashes as other countries defend themselves against this very real treat.
Kamil Idris warns implicitly in his book that this is against this act and how it challenges international law and directly challenges the sovereignty of a foreign country. This act may cause any country in question take a defensive stance against the possible lawsuit. In his book, Professor Kamil Idris states that our current political mood is similar to what was happening in the pre WWI era. Having distrust in powerful political figures and rejecting international institutions and rousing Nationalism at the same time makes it a tense time in the world of international law. Professor Idris feels that this could lead the rebirth of defensive nationalism and creating the same climate that was similar to what was seen during WWI and WWII.
