  • Personally I think the concept of walling by Israel is either consciously or sub-consciously derived from the Eruv.

    Isn't it silly that a so-called advanced nation still lets obscure religious traditions influence national and international policy.

    • @DEADBEEF you dont think it has anything to do with the constant marches on random border areas?

      Nope.

      What other countries have gone to the extreme of totally walling their country? Even the Godless Commies only had walls around Berlin - and that was more political than practical.

      I think you'll find the Great Wall of China was the 'Great Walls of China' and in all the incarnations it wasn't a complete intrusive defence of the country. More it was a series of barriers, often to control internal traffic. In no case did it defend the entire country. It was mostly near the Northern boundaries. There was no Southern or Western Extension.

      In the end the walls failed for all their basic purposes - mostly control of revenue.

    • @DEADBEEF true some of what you say ...but the wall was to provided protection to economic development and cultural progress. It safeguarded the trading routes such as the Silk Road, and secured transmission of information and transportation. as for the wall in n. israel it would control only that part of the borders some security is better than no security, it would slow any attempts to enter the region, stop any attempt to snipe at israelis working near the border, the walls built in the sout More..

  • We Germans have our experiences with walls and people who build them.
    Thats why I can never vote for it.
