On Friday, Israel came before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague with an ask totalling 26 words: “The State of Israel requests the Court to reject the request for the modification and indication of provisional measures submitted by the Republic of South Africa.”

It did not take particularly long to make its argument either, declining to use 30 minutes of the two hours it had been granted to do so.  

But within that time, and during its so simply summarised request, it had an extraordinary number of bad things to say about South Africa.
