It gets worse! These are not shoes, but BOOTS!
What about the latest version of the Berlin Wall - called what? The Jew Fence?

Not content to ignore UN resolutions, Israel is flouting the Geneva Conventions. The very "crimes" used by these hypocrites and liars as "evidence" against Saddam Hussein!

According to official Israeli maps, Palestinians will be trapped between the Green Line (Israel's de-facto border) and Israel's new apartheid wall in a closed military zone, while vast tracts of Palestinian land is seized.

Israel's wall will be 116 km long, and includes electric fences, trenches, cameras, sensors, and security patrols, and will ultimately extend to the full 350 km border around the West Bank.

This outrageous form of apartheid against Palestinians fulfils all elements of the crime of apartheid as defined under the International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid (1976), which expressly states that the crime of apartheid 'shall include similar policies and practices of racial segregation and discrimination as practiced in southern Africa' (art.2).

Under the Fourth Geneva Convention, to which Israel is a signatory, the destruction or seizure of property in Occupied Territories is forbidden, as is collective punishment. Article 47 outlines that Occupying Powers must not make changes to property in occupied territories.

Requisition of land in occupied territories is prohibited under Article 52 of the Hague Regulations of 1907, which is a part of customary international law.

According to laws of occupation, Occupiers must NOT make any changes in status of occupied territories. Israel's apartheid wall seizes, destroys and permanently changes the status of occupied territories.

But the Israeli government of war criminal Sharon, like that of the belligerant and foolish American Bush and his cronies in the oil industry, place themselves above the international laws and conventions acknowledged by other civilized nations!

And then they ask where "terrorism" stems from!

This is not merely ignorant or disingenuous but malicious!
