Over the last few weeks, Palestinian resistance has increased against the Apartheid Wall dismissing claims made by the Occupation Forces over modification of the Wall’s path. Palestinian resistance made it clear they didn’t believe the Zionist lies and do not accept the negation towards the issue of the Wall by negotiators at Sharm al-Shekh. Below is a summary of Palestinian resistance since the 18th of February:

The latest political cartoon from Khalil Abu Arafeh comes in response to the ICJ ruling that the Apartheid Wall is illegal. Time will tell if international pressure, sanctions, boycott and support of Palestinian resistance to the Wall will ultimately make the impact of the ICJ ruling strong enough to bring the Wall down.

As the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague hears Oral Arguments in the case against the Wall, the Israelis have decided they will not participate in the Hearing, aware that there is nothing legitimate--or legal--about the Wall. Instead, parallel Israeli efforts to undermine the case against the Wall were well underway from the start, including arguments that the political nature of the Wall should prevent the court from hearing the case. In the end, the media is an Israeli dominated arena where much of its political agenda plays itself out.
