Another view on he ICJ fence ruling

The Mighty International World Court of Justice by Mike Levin.

Quote: 'The UN established the International Court of Justice to ‘settle disputes between states’. Palestine is not a state. It has only observer status in the UN. So why was this issue even brought to the court?'

I'm ashamed to admit, I never even thought of this argument. But there's a sinister motive behind it then: It creates a precedent of treating the "Palestininan Authority" as a government, the disputed areas as a de facto nation-state.

But I loved this one: Quote: 'An exercise in the UN playing with itself!'

Read it all.
