2. For one, Israel wishes France to vote no this September and side with Israel
on the UN matter, so France may be attempting to get something from Israel if they want
that vote..but that is my guess. Or maybe they are just pissed off at such an arrogant move by Israel?

As far as helping to broker a peace deal, yes, France is giving Israel good advice. It is a provocative move by Israel
when you consider this too: "Sunday's announcement by the Israeli government coincides with a meeting between Netanyahu and the European Union's head of diplomacy, Catherine Ashton"

But France having jurisdiction on the matter, nope. He is referring to UNSC Resolution 446, it was adopted in 1979.



Legalities concerning the Wall among other issues are also addressed in an advisory ruling by the ICJ. The anniversary
is coming up soon.
