I was shocked to learn that the Israeli-built "Wall" entirely encircles one small Palestinian town, whose name I cannot remember now, and also completely encircles the city of Gaza. The question leaps to mind: what's the difference between this encirclement of a Palestinian town and the large city of Gaza and the creation of the Warsaw Ghetto or the pogroms instituted by Hitler. This encirclement is just the beginning; worse will likely follow in the name of "security". Interviewee after interviewee on both sides, Israeli and Palestinian alike, say it's a waste of money. Scene after scene of residents scaling the wall to get to jobs on the other side were eloquent testimony to its ineffectiveness. The comment by the Israeli military chief overseeing construction of the wall, "Both sides of the wall are ours. We're the rulers." says it all.
