What difference does a treaty make?
The difference between a possible mid-east peace accord and another

A treaty makes no difference when the Israeli government chooses not to enforce existing law.

As Andrew Jackson is rumored to have stated when informed of a Supreme Court decision stating that removing the Cherokee from the Carolinas and Tennessee was illegal. Stated that the court made the ruling and the court would have to enforce it...then he commanded the army to move the Cherokee. The 'Trail of Tears; was the result.... Ethnic cleansing and genocide we would call it today.

Treaties are only as good as those who enforce them.
