    You, sir, personify the reason Israel has become a rogue nation, in violation of more UN resolutions than any country in the world, increasingly isolated in the world community, and experiencing spreading movements of boycotts, sanctions and divestment around the globe. The international community is fed up with Israeli violations of international law. The wall you speak of is a great example. It would be just as effective on Israeli territory, and the UN International Court of Justice has declared the wall illegal. It is simply a land grab. Jews do not have a legal right to build settlements on Palestinian land occupied by Israel. And that is what they have done. So, the settlements are in violation not only of UN resolutions, and international law, but also of the 4th Geneva Convention. Breaches of the Convention are considered war crimes. If the US should tire of Israeli aberrancy, and withhold its veto in the UNSC, Israel would be hauled before the International Criminal Court in the Hague to answer charges of war crimes so fast it would make your head swim.
