Is it a Fence? Is it a Wall? No, it's a Separation Barrier
Israel's Separation Barrier, dubbed the "Apartheid Wall" or "Berlin Wall" by Palestinians, has increasingly attracted international media attention, largely due to the hard-to-ignore scale of the project.

I cannot imagin what this is going to cause
whats your thoughts on this!!!

This has been covered a few hundred times in other threads over the numerous months since it was announced.

Yes, as most of the posting membership has written on this 10 times before, we all think it's a stupid idea.
Just starting to get a wee bit repetitive on this site at the moment.

Let me go on record as saying I don't think it's a stupid idea.

Crap, you have to fight terrorism somehow. You can't shoot 'em because they're gonna duck behind women and children. You can't catch 'em at check-points because there are too many Palestinian-Arabs for you to check them all and the UN and Amnesty International will get on you for making the non-terrorists late for work or class or something. You can't leave it to the Palestinian Authority to take care of it because they're the terrorist alumni association. You might as well build a wall. It's going to draw the same kind of criticism as everything else Israel does, but at least you don't have to shoot anybody to make it work.

The wall is an act of frustration. Nobody likes it, but it goes forward because nobody can think of a better alternative. Thousands die or are wounded, but every effort to stop the violence draws criticism and international pressure. There are negotiations, but they fail. Promises are made, then broken. It's been going on for fifty-five years now.

So build a wall. Create a self-imposed ghetto for Israel. You can't make the terrorist stop by other means, so you just remove their ability to reach their targets. It won't solve the problem, by maybe fewer people will die.

good fences make for good neighbors, as the saying goes. hell, it sure can't make the situation over there any worse. (can it?!)

I expect it will put a lot of terrorists out of work.

Well yeah, if I put a barbed wire fence around my house I assume my house would be less likely to be broken into.
