    No country in the world empowers its supreme court to overrule security decisions in wartime, and this is an example of why. Highway 443 was built parallel to the existing road between Arab towns a mile away to prevent terrorist attacks on passing Israeli motorists, by creating separate roads - NOT to create a short-cut to Ramallah for Arabs. They don't need to "benefit" from 443 because it was created only in response to their terrorism. In view of this stupid ruling, the correct response of the Israeli government and IDF should be to simply rip out the short connector road from Ramallah to 443, thus eliminating the value of 443 to local Arabs, who can go back to using their own roads and the 30 minute drive on "alternate" road Israel built for them, or on their original "60 min." pre-67 road. Eliminates terrorism risk, and need for a cumbersome, dangerous security roadblock to check all motorists where west end of 443 crosses the Green Line, where PA Arabs are still banned anyway.
