It's a dumb idea. The wall essentially says "we give up on a solution, we choose to try containment". Palestinians will predictably keep rebelling, and suicide bombers will try to find a way to defeat the wall.

I'm against it, of course. But Israel can get away with whatever they want to do, international law and UN rulings are meaningless for them. So really, who's gonna stop them? :rolleyes:

The Berlin wall has fallen, long live the new wall!

Of course this one is supposed to keep people out instead of in. It is a nice way of moving a border.

Obviously its a bad idea that will backfire big time. Like Tinto said, the Palestinians will just be made madder and more desperate and the world community will just grow more despairing of a peaceful solution. But eventually people will have to face up to the fact that a workable solution must be found. I'm not smart enoygh to know what it is (the solution), but drawing boundaries that leave any Palestinian state an effective bunch of waterless, arrable landless Potemkin islands disconnected from eachother and seperated from the source of most of their potential jobs and wealth by a wall, that ain't gonna be it. And since Israel is effectively insulated from any outside criticism by the fact that its water is carried by elements inside the US government (and by the fallacious but quite effective argument that anything you say against the acts of the Israeli government is de-facto anti-semitism), its not like they'll be listening to the voice of reason anytime soon. But eventually it will happen, and these sort of things will be looked at as stupidity which made things that much worse and peace that much more difficult to acheive.

Well, he shouldn't. Lav called dibs on Heather a long time ago, when she used to lovingly refer to him as her "jail bait." ;)

If anyone can think of a better way of keeping out the suicide bombers then let`s hear it.
Keeping them out from what? Their homes? This is just another great idea to create more of them.

Just another step in "the purge"

so explain why the wall is created in THEIR supposed territory, when you are at it, explain why houses are built there too. Is that to keep out suicide bombers? Is it to create a good feeling of friendship so there will be no more bombers?

A better idea? Let's see... how about Israel getting the fukk out of the territories they invaded, which do not belong to them? That would help.
