Indeed, and despite the political perspective expressed in my post about the one state/two state considerations, it is relevant to understand that, in
a two state situation, this wall would act as a border.
Act as a border while not located on the border ...
And in a 'one state' situation, this wall would still stand in a middle of single country and create enclaves.
It will never be a guarantee of any safety for the jewish Israeli population unless they starts considering its construction and its existence is part
of broader problem no one dared to address.
Because you need ultimately to take into consideration all aspects of the middle east issue and everyone concerned should consider a minimal amount of
This wall is like a bandage on a peg leg IMO.
Speaking of the prevention of immigration, I guess that for African refugees, Israel looks more like a destination of choice that the Palestinian
territory or any other neighbouring country experiencing the joys of religiously infused wars. I'm quite sure that you know about the way the
immigrants and the Ethiopian Jews are being treated in Israel atm. They wouldn't be demonstrating as they do now if everything was perfect.
Once Israel has made peace with itself, it can probably consider extending it to its neighbours as well.
It may looks like an easy job to point the finger at something that will obviously appear as a bad thing to the neutral observer. But given that most
people only consider the advantages and benefits of that structure, that perspective needed to be shown as well. We both don't consider Fox news or
any other mainstream media is likely to make any big show on the topic any time soon, don't you ? Why is that ? ... When you broader the perspective,
you get more insight about the real complexity of the problem but that doesn't make the solution any more likely to happen. Maybe these internal
Israeli troubles we now see are the beginning of some sort of 'Israeli spring' ... wait and see.
What I find the most surreal, is the separated roads for Palestinians and Israelis, which is a by product of the wall itself.
