"Mr. Sharon, tear down this wall!"

“Just because the International Court of Justice ruled against Israel and, by extension, its US protector, on every point, does not invalidate the reasoning for the rest of the world. Rather, it is a wake-up call to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and his supporters in the United States to reconsider their stands and return from orbit. You cannot cherry-pick international law, enforcing the parts you like on others and denying those that impinge on your interests.” Veteran UN analyst Ian Williams assesses the 9 July World Court advisory opinion on the illegality of Israel’s Apartheid Wall.
