That no matter how much Israel wants to wish, wish, wish it away that ICJ Advisory Opinion is still out there. And it's still a potent weapon for any country to use against Israel's occupation of the West Bank. All it takes is for that country - any country, really - to finally make the decision that Israel needs to be hit with financial sanctions. And all they have to do to justify that decision is to pick up the Advisory Opinion, thumb to the back page, and say: "Hmmmm, sage advice, indeed. I think we had better heed it, don't you?" And from that moment that country is immune to any protests from the Israeli director general of the Foreign Ministry, because all it needs top do is hurl a copy of that opinion over the table to that Israeli flunky and say: "It's all in there, sunshine".
