It has become clear lately that there is an increasing disconnect between state authorities /judicial system and the IDF / settlers in the West Bank. IDF officers are often themselves kippa-wearing settlers. Altering the wall route will cause additional expense that Israel can little afford at this time, so it is very possible that Abdullah Abu Rahma and other residents of Bili'in will find their hopes dashed. Take note though that International activists will be keeping a close watch on this issue to ensure that the high court decision is indeed implemented. And that will be the precedent needed to bring justice to other like Palestinian communities whose lands have been unnecessarily subsumed by the wall for purposes of settlement expansion. We do understand this, you know.
