Back in 2004, the International Court of Justice ruled against Israel’s separation barrier, a position ignored by the Zionist state.
Now, in another potentially important case, the ICJ is soon to rule on an issue with deep relevance to the currently non-existent Palestinian state:
The International Court of Justice will soon issue an opinion on the legality of Kosovo’s independence from Serbia, which was unilaterally declared in February 2008 and has been recognized by 65 of the U.N.’s 192 members. A decision to recognize Kosovo’s independence will likely have a significant influence on separatist movements around the world, and on the future of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Serbia’s Foreign Minister, Vuk Jeremic, recently told an interviewer, “Kosovo is our Jerusalem.” The question for Israel is whether Jerusalem will soon become its Kosovo.
