This article discusses various issues related to the legality of controversial security barrier Israel is building to keep out suicide bombers. The International Court of Justice recently held three days of hearings on the issue at the Peace Palace in Hague. Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon ridiculed hearing terming it as an "international circus." The U.S. boycotted hearings. However, it was the absence of representatives from the European Union that surprised some Israelis.
