The Hague Odyssey: Israel's Struggle for Security on the Front Lines of Terrorism and her Battle for Justice at the United Nations
Israel’s enemies, sometimes with the misguided help of her friends, routinely use the United Nations in an ongoing effort to demonize the Jewish State.
When Israel constructed a terrorism prevention security fence in an attempt to stop suicide bombings and other violent acts, the UN General Assembly – defying its own charter – requested an advisory opinion about the security fence from the International Court of Justice at the Hague. Israel’s opponents question the legality of the barrier, with some even calling it an “apartheid wall.”
In The Hague Odyssey, Richard D. Heideman, noted international attorney and advocate for victims of terrorism, challenges the Court and presents a compelling and insightful defense of the absolute right and obligation of the State of Israel, as every other nation, to protect her citizens.
