There are few things more hilarious than watching a body of incompetents with no means of enforcement trying to make their mark on the international scene with their empty and impotent “findings”.
There’s even some value to be found in the International Court of “Justice”‘s latest eruption of idiocy, in that it provides us with a textbook example of just why we should continue to ignore it.
Which we shall.
PARIS, July 9 — The International Court of Justice in The Hague ruled Friday that the security barrier being constructed by Israel in the West Bank is illegal,
Go arrest it, then.
…violates the human rights of Palestinians…
Unicorns as well? Who are these mythical “Palestinians” of which you speak? Do they ride Oliphaunts? No, that would be Haradrim.
Besides, the wall protects the rights of Israeli civilians, chief among which is the right not to be blown to nail-shredded bits by a ragheaded splodeydope on their way to school and/or work, so we really couldn’t care less about the alleged “rights” of your mythical creatures.
…and must be dismantled.
Please try. Oh PLEASE try!
In a nonbinding advisory opinion, the court rejected Israel’s contention that the barrier was essential for its security.
Well, considering that the number of casualties related to Yasser’s goons and their terror attacks have dropped by 70% since July of 2003, or a drop of 90% in the number of attacks since the fence was put up, we offer the nonbinding advisory opinion that the court can take their rejection and shove it up their undoubtedly voluminous asses.
It ruled that Palestinians whose land has been confiscated for the 450-mile barrier should be compensated…
They can send an invoice to the terrorist swine that necessitated the construction of the barrier, then. Or they can eat shit and die. Both are equally fine with us.
…and called on countries not to help Israel build the fence.
Warm up the CATs. Anything the UN or any of their tentacles is against is automatically a Good Thing, so we are now honor bound to help the Israelis finish the construction in any way we possibly can.
“Israel is under an obligation to cease forthwith the works of construction of the wall being built in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including in and around East Jerusalem, to dismantle forthwith the structure therein situated,” the court said.
They are, are they? Under an obligation to whom, exactly? Care to elaborate on that, perhaps? It’s a bit hard to be impressed unless you know which authority exactly it is that you should be impressed by.
The Palestinian leader, Yasser Arafat, called the ruling “a victory for the Palestinian people, adding, “We salute this decision condemning the racist wall.”
Wow! A “racist wall?” Whatever will be next? Racist rocks, racist water and racist tumbleweeds? The wonders of Jooish technology never ceases to amaze us.
Only, we’d wish that some of that technology were put to good use by, say, tearing Yasser Arafish to tiny little slivers of bloody flesh.
Israel’s deputy prime minister, Ehud Olmert, said the fence would not be removed. “It’s certainly unpleasant to have the ruling, but it’s more unpleasant to have suicide attacks from territories not defended by the fence,” he said. “The fence is probably uncomfortable and inconvenient for the Palestinians who live alongside of it, but it doesn’t kill. The fence is removable and reversible, and death is not.”
Which is exactly why the latter method is the treatment of choice when it comes to an infestation of paleswinian splodeydopes, but a wall certainly helps as well.
The court ruled14 to 1 against the fence, with the American judge, Thomas Buergenthal, siding with Israel. On a separate question — whether countries should withhold aid and support for the barrier project — the court was split 13 to 2. A Dutch judge, Pieter H. Kooijmans, joined Buergenthal in dissenting from the majority view, which called on countries “not to render aid or assistance in maintaining the situation created” by the wall.
So the Dutch are “against” the wall, but they’re not opposed to getting a piece of the action? Are they french, by any chance?
Palestinian legal advisers said they would seek clarification on what the judges meant by “aid or assistance” and whether the ruling amounted to a call for sanctions against Israel.
Pardon us for not accepting bets on what conclusion they will come up with.
Although the ruling, which was requested by the U.N. General Assembly, is nonbinding, the court’s opinions carry moral and political weight.
…in france. And Massachussetts, but what’s the difference?
Past decisions have been used to pressure governments in the court of public opinion, such as a ruling in 1971 against South Africa’s occupation of Namibia, which led to Namibia’s independence and fueled an economic boycott against South Africa’s white-minority government.
Odd. We always thought that it was the practice of Apartheid that drove the economic sanctions against South Africa. If we’d known back then that it was really all about kicking Namib commie asses, we’d have been the captain of a blockade runner back then.
Israeli officials have argued that the fence is necessary to prevent Palestinian suicide bombers from entering Israel from the West Bank, and they point to the dramatic drop in suicide attacks in the 18 months that the wall has been under construction. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who first conceived of the wall, has called it a temporary solution to Palestinian attacks.
“But hey, if you want a permanent solution, we can deliver one of those as well. Just don’t come crying afterwards, y’hear?”
But Palestinians have denounced the barrier, which cuts deep into West Bank territory to encompass Jewish settlements, as an attempt by Israel to grab Palestinian land.
Not to mention how the “racist wall”, at night when nobody’s looking, creeps ever further into “palestinian lands” under its own power. It’s a Fence Golem, we tell you!
Palestinians also say the construction project has hindered attempts to negotiate a solution to the long-running Israeli-Palestinian dispute.
Of course it has. It has swept the rug out from under the threat of violence against innocent civilians that those “darling” paleswinians used to count on as leverage.
And this is a Bad Thing?
We’re frightfully sorry if we have somehow managed to, inadvertently, give you the impression that the opinions of a bunch of genocidal freaks matters a rusty farthing to us, because we assure you that they don’t.
As a matter of fact, the more the paleswinians whine, the more convinced we are that the fence is a brilliant idea.
Am Yisrael Chai!
