Israel’s justice minister opposed Israel’s decision to abstain from The Hague’s hearings on the West Bank security barrier. “This is basically a worldwide tribunal where your opinions should be broadcast and reported everywhere in the world,” Yosef “Tommy” Lapid told Reuters on Tuesday, referring to hearings at the International Court of Justice set to begin Feb. 23. “If you do not put up an argument, you will not have publicity for your views.”
