UN appeals to ICJ on security fence

12.09.03

The same UN General Assembly that considers the lives of Israeli children to be worthless has passed a resolution sending the security fence issue to the “International Court of Justice” in The Hague:

Israel condemned the United Nations decision Monday sending the security fence issue to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), saying it is a “cynical manipulation” of an apparatus that is designed to promote world peace in order to further the interests of those supporting terrorism.

But officials agreed to cooperate with the court’s expected investigation, saying they would argue the fence is needed for self-defense against terrorism.

With 90 nations in favor, eight opposed, and 74 abstentions, the non-binding resolution asks the court to consider the “legal consequences arising from the construction of the wall being built by Israel, the occupying power.”

“The Palestinians again used the automatic majority they enjoy at the UN to further initiatives that not only damage efforts to create conditions to renew the diplomatic process, but also damage the UN itself and the organization’s ability to fulfill its mission to preserve world peace and security,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Yonatan Peled said.

So what else is new?

The IJC is nothing more than a puppet court, an instrument used by a morally corrupt world to prosecute the countries that enjoy the freedoms which they hate so much. And the UN is nothing but a numbers game. The mere fact that Israel has to defend its decision to build a fence to keep out suicide bombers, while the Palestinians don’t have to answer for the bombers’ actions in the first place, is testament to how upside-down the UN has become.

Maybe Israel should split into about 90 independent states. Then each could have a separate membership and vote at the UN.

“The mere fact that Israel has to defend its decision to build a fence to keep out suicide bombers, while the Palestinians don’t have to answer for the bombers’ actions in the first place, is testament to how upside-down the UN has become.”

I agree. If the world community won’t speak out against murder, it has no moral
authority to speak against the retaliation.

No democracy voted to condemn the fence. The 90 countries that did were all dictatorships.
