    THE HAGUE, Netherlands (Reuters) - The World Court strongly condemned Israel's West Bank barrier Friday, saying it had illegally imposed hardship on thousands of Palestinians and should be torn down.

    The ruling said the route of the planned 370-mile barrier, which is about a third built, "severely impeded" Palestinian rights to self-rule.

    Israel was forthright in its rejection of the ruling, saying not one Palestinian suicide bomber had managed to slip into the Jewish state wherever the barrier had already been constructed.

    The court said in a nonbinding ruling hailed by Palestinians and rejected by Israel that the barrier violated international humanitarian law. It called on the U.N. Security Council and General Assembly to stop its construction.

    "They can say the earth is flat. It won't make it legal, it won't make it true and it won't make it just," Israeli Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Britain's Sky television.

    The court's head judge, Shi Jiuyong of China, said in the ruling: "The wall ... cannot be justified by military exigencies or by the requirements of national security or public order.

    "The construction ... constitutes breaches by Israel of its obligations under applicable international humanitarian law. Israel is under an obligation ... to dismantle forthwith the structure," he said.

    (Yet China built a wall didn’t they? A “Great Wall”. Mr. Jiuyong, "Tear down your wall first")

    When the "World Court" stops the Palestinian suicide bombers, they might have a point. Until then, their a bogus bunch. :rolleyes:

    Funny a guy from China thinks the wall is wrong. Isn't China where the GREAT WALL thing is located? I think they built it to keep Kahn and the Mongolians out?????????:rolleyes:

    And to think some find it's good enough just to build walls around the opinions they hold near and dear?

    I'm of the persuasion that feels the individuals over there who seem to be perpetuating the conflict deserve each other and whatever misery is inflicted upon them. Unfortunately both sides have displayed a willingness to hurt the children of their enemies that is why I feel they are both disgusting and unworhty of American aid.
