85. Egypt is sending additional security to Sinai which you interpret as the Gaza border
Edited on Sun Sep-11-11 03:44 AM by azurnoir
other than that Egypt's policy towards Rafah remains the same and due to Oslo Israel still remains responsible for UN aid at the very least to Gaza not Egypt who did BTW allow some dates donated by Saudi Arabia in

              - The ICJ does not have jurisdiction  hack89   Sep-09-11 10:19 AM   #27 
              - Turkey will get the UN General Assembly to forward it, just like the 2004 ICJ case about the wall.  stockholmer   Sep-09-11 10:59 AM   #29 
                 - So the ICJ is going to overturn a UN investigation?  hack89   Sep-09-11 11:15 AM   #30 
                 - It's not a UN investigation. It's the Secretary General's advisory panel, not a UN body.  JackRiddler   Sep-09-11 11:23 AM   #35 
                 - If the UN wants to make it self more irrelevant, more power to them I guess. nt  hack89   Sep-09-11 11:31 AM   #37 
                 - +1000 nothing like a death-squad commanding presidente to add that little extra touch of UN gravitas  stockholmer   Sep-09-11 01:36 PM   #44 
                 - LOLOLOL @ "they don't need the court's help to sort out complex legal issues"  stockholmer   Sep-09-11 01:25 PM   #42

                 - And ICJ opinions are not binding  hack89   Sep-09-11 02:08 PM   #47 
                 - well yes Israel has seemed to refuse to abide by the ICJ ruling on the security wall n/t  azurnoir   Sep-09-11 02:16 PM   #49 
                 - Because is was not binding - they didn't have to. nt  hack89   Sep-09-11 03:48 PM   #54 
                 - But you like UN decisions when you can cite them in support of USG aggressions, no?  JackRiddler   Sep-09-11 02:49 PM   #51 
                    - I think the UN needs to go away. nt  hack89   Sep-09-11 03:36 PM   #52 
                 - In fact, it's not even a "UN report," in the strictest sense. Thanks.  JackRiddler   Sep-10-11 03:34 PM   #69 
                 - What yr saying about the Palmer Report ruling on legality is completely incorrect...  Violet_Crumble   Sep-09-11 05:41 PM   #55 
                    - It can't be a contentious case  hack89   Sep-09-11 07:10 PM   #56 
                       - If it's heard by the ICJ, it will be a contentious case...  Violet_Crumble   Sep-10-11 01:06 AM   #57 
                          - Regardless of the reasons, it would be a non event  ProgressiveProfessor   Sep-10-11 04:11 AM   #60 
                          - What would be a non event? The case being heard by the ICJ?  Violet_Crumble   Sep-10-11 05:35 AM   #62 
                             - With out mutual consent, it would be a non binding advisory opinion, a non event  ProgressiveProfessor   Sep-10-11 05:38 AM   #63 
                                - If one or both don't agree to it, the case won't even be heard...  Violet_Crumble   Sep-10-11 06:07 AM   #64 
                                   - You assert that conclusion repeatedly, but it is irrelevant  ProgressiveProfessor   Sep-10-11 11:54 AM   #66 
                                      - Well, I've only mentioned it twice so far, and it's definitely not irrelevant...  Violet_Crumble   Sep-10-11 06:09 PM   #70 
                                         - Mountains of PR?  ProgressiveProfessor   Sep-11-11 07:26 AM   #87 
                          - Israel, like any country, would be foolish to place their security in the hands of the UN  hack89   Sep-10-11 10:00 AM   #65 
                          - No-ones asking them to...  Violet_Crumble   Sep-10-11 06:19 PM   #71 
                             - There is no real legal dispute  hack89   Sep-10-11 09:16 PM   #72 
                                - so if you try to break the blockade you support Hamas is that your statement  azurnoir   Sep-10-11 09:36 PM   #73 
                                - The rules of blockade are clear  hack89   Sep-10-11 10:14 PM   #74

                                      - If the airplane or ship is first inspected by the Israeli government  hack89   Sep-10-11 10:30 PM   #76
