Although the anti-Israel resolution adopted by the UN Security Council has no immediate practical ramifications, it could pave the way for lawsuits against Israel at the ICC, the EU and others could initiate sanctions against any Israeli company or institution seen as violating resolution, and of course this resolution legitimizes boycotts on all settlement products, services, and organizations.
