Israel's High Court has ordered that changes be made to the route of Israel's controversial West Bank barrier to minimise hardships to Palestinians
living in the area. The decision comes before a non-binding ruling by the UN's top court on the legality of the controversial barrier.
Very brave decision by the Israeli court. Especially since the barrier, among other strategies, seems to have curbed, if not eliminated, the suicide
bomber threat to Israel proper.
This may be an attempt to ameliorate any decision, regarding the legality of the barrier, by the international court of justice.
BBC is now reporting - barrier must be moved, even if it means less security for Israel.
