In fact, not only has Israel repeatedly asserted that there is no political significance to this fence, we have demonstrated in practice and articulated in negotiations that Israel is ready and able, at tremendous cost, to adjust or dismantle a fence if it so required as part of a political settlement.
Many lies and misrepresentations have been made about Israel's security measures, but no lie is so bold and audacious as the one which pretends that Israel's actions occur in a vacuum and are not in response to years of terrorism of the most vicious and brutal kind.

 The Exclusion of Israel from the United Nations Regional Group System
To the extent that Israel's total exclusion from the regional group system, and hence from full and equal participation in the work of the United Nations, is the consequence of actions and omissions by UN Members, I am of the opinion that such action is a breach by Members of their obligations under the Charter.
