Re "Israel's High Court Puts a Dent in West Bank Barrier," June 30: Obviously, Israel is not exempt from the far-reaching arm of the liberal courts and judges plaguing most of Europe and much of the United States. Israel's Supreme Court ruling that the West Bank barrier protecting Israel violates "many fundamental rights" of Palestinians living in its path ignores Israel's fundamental right to protect itself from suffering more Palestinian suicide bombings aimed at Israeli schoolchildren, women and families eating in restaurants.
Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ahmed Korei's comments that the entire barrier is an "act of aggression" is not only laughable, it's pathetic. Then there is the International Court of Justice, which will be rendering its nonbinding, no doubt liberal opinion in the coming days. Hey Ahmed Korei, here's an idea: Stop the suicide bombings killing women and children and just maybe Israel will stop building the West Bank barrier.
