Congress calls fence "response to terror"

Folks: The 60-page ruling of the ICJ only mentioned the 20,000 terror attacks twice, and then only in summerizing the Israeli position, but without validating that Israel put up the fence to stop the attacks. Here is what the US House of Representatives did:


House of Representatives Deplores "Misuse" of ICJ in 361-45 Vote

By an overwhelming vote of 361 to 45 (with 13 voting present), the House of Representatives Thursday passed a resolution deploring the "misuse" of the UN's International Court of Justice (ICJ) and its recent advisory opinion that Israel's security fence is illegal and should be dismantled. The resolution described Israel's security fence as a "response to an ongoing campaign of terror" and recognized that the barrier "has resulted in a dramatic decline in the number of successful terrorist attacks." The resolution also strongly reaffirmed America's commitment to Israel's security and backed Israel's right to self-defense. (AIPAC)
