The article says that the Wall "juts" in WB territory. Appropriating 10.1% of WB territory and having 80% cut through Palestinian land, causing extreme hardship and loss of livelihoods for tens of thousands of Palestinians, is hardly 'jutting'. The Wall is illegal under international law and the entire Wall should be moved to the Green Line, so this minor blip of a decision is welcome but obscures the larger injustice. The Wall appropriates prime Palestinian agricultural land and aquifers in the guise of 'security'. Pathetic that 'security' in this case means appropriating yet more Palestinian land to protect land stolen previously as settlements, so that Palestinians are having land stolen from them twice, both instances illegal under international law. Tunnels, gates and a Kafkaesque permit system are meant to give Palestinians 'transportational' rather than geographic contiguity. Communities and livelihoods are being systematicaly destroyed. Shame on Israel.
