The United Nations demanded Wednesday that Israel implement a five-year-old ruling of its International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague that deemed most of the West Bank separation fence illegal.The zionist argument is that the wall protects against Palestinian suicide attacks. This argument is shallow. First because the decrease in suicide attacks was balanced by an increase in rocket fire which means that Palestinians will always take some form of action against Israel and Israel will always retaliate. This is an occupation after all. Second because if it is for security, why Israel would not follow the green line of 1967 and why Israel changed the route of the wall several times grabbing more Palestinian land on each of these occasions ?
The fence severely restricts the movement of tens of thousands of Palestinians, the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) told a news conference in Jerusalem, marking the fifth anniversary of the ICJ advisory opinion.
Some 85 per cent of it was built inside the West Bank, and not on the Green Line.
