Big Surprise Here

Yesterday there was a vote in the U.N. General Assembly which was designed to force Israel to except the World Court's ruling in regards to Israel's security wall.

The ruling passed easily, the vote was 150 to 6 with 10 abstentions, as always Israel plans to ignore the ruling. Israel's disregard for and the actual passing of the measure by the General Assembly is no surprise to anyone.

It seems that I've read this exact same news story time and time again, a week doesn't seem to go by without the General Assembly having a ruling go against Israel and then Israel ignoring the ruling and in the end nothing coming of it in the end.

I think Abba Eban said it best when he was asked about the General Assembly's rulings in regards to Israel,
"If Algeria introduced a resolution declaring that the earth was flat and the Israel had flattened it, it would pass by a vote of 164 to 13 with 26 abstentions."
Eban has hit the nail right on the head there, don't you think?
