ABSTRACT
This article focuses on walls as barriers, that have long insulated tribes, cities, civilizations; demarcating "us" on the inside from "them" on the outside. Walls have a long pedigree in the Holy Land. Ancient Jericho was famous for its wall and Jerusalem's Old City is still encircled by a stone structure. The centuries-old Great Wall of China to the short-lived Berlin Wall are all barriers. By historic standards, the new West Bank wall is different; the Israeli government hopes it will keep the Palestinians and those bent on terrorism, at bay by encircling Palestinian towns and villages.
