Mr. Sharon, Tear Down that Wall - NOT

How ironic that the judge who read the ruling declaring Israel’s security barrier illegal comes from China – the country that ate Tibet whole and has a human rights record somewhere South of Attila.

“The wall … cannot be justified by military exigencies or by the requirements of national security or public order,” said Judge Shi Jiuyong of China as he read out the ruling.

Public order? Well, the Chinese wrote the book on that.

And now this “court” is calling on the United Nations, which was Saddam’s enabler during Oil-for-Food, to be the Palestinian’s enabler (again) on the wall. (Hey, they did a good job – it should be rewarded.) Meanwhile, Arafat et al will be able to point to the World Court as support for continuing their kleptocracy and avoiding a two-state solution into oblivion (probably theirs). Talk about the world upside down — not even Père Ubu could have dreamed this up.

UPATE: And we are just one month past the 15th Anniversary of the Tienanmen Massacre. I hate the word “sheesh,” but it seems to apply.
