    1. "UNSCR 465 was passed under Chapter 6 (not under Chapter 7) which means that it is unenforceable." - Jeff The UN indeed will not enforce. But the topic is "legality", such as in "There is nothing "illegal" about an occupation provided that the occupying power honors its responsibilities" - Jeff. Illegal behavior exists now, since the Security Council determines international law. It is not being enforced now, but perhaps some day it will. 2. "The ICJ has no juristiction over the case since both parties did not agree to abide by its ruling in advance." - Jeff Again you misunderstand the function of the ICJ, although I explained it to you once. The ICJ has two functions. One is to adjudicate disputes between states, in which case both states need to accept its jurisdiction. The OTHER function is to provide advisory legal opinion to some UN bodies, as was the case with the "wall". Here, no state is asked to accept Jurisdiction. As usual, you are too intellectually lazy to find out, and I have to do the leg work for you. Try this: "An advisory opinion is a function of the court open only to specified United Nations bodies and agencies. On receiving a request, the Court decides which States and organizations might provide useful information and gives them an opportunity to present written or oral statements. Advisory Opinions were intended as a means by which UN agencies could seek the Court's help in deciding complex legal issues that might fall under their respective mandates. In principle, the Court's advisory opinions are consultative in character, though they are also influential and widely respected." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Court_of_Justice
