UN International Court of Justice declares Israel/Palestine barrier illegal 

I understand that it makes it really annoying for Palestinians to commute from their homes to their schools/jobs/other resources in East Jerusalem, and that half of the wall is already up. So why not just order Israel to redraw the boundaries? I would think that this barrier would make Israel's anti-terrorism efforts less intrusive on Palestinian territory, since they could just police the barrier instead of having to man all these checkpoints in the West Bank.

Given the inability of the Palestinian government to stop the terrorists, it seems like a barrier like this would make it easier for Israel and Palestine to establish two (relatively) peacefully coexisting states.
