ABSTRACT
The article presents information about the wall, built through West Bank by the Israeli Defense forces. Israelis are justifying its action as a desperate attempt to protect its citizens from the suicide bombers. However in reality this wall has nothing to do with security. It is built through the West Bank, separating Palestinians from Palestinians, and not Israelis from terrorists. The section of the wall around Jerusalem is not yet finished, and therefore any claim that gives credit to this wall for the decline in terrorist actions inside Israel is baseless as access to some parts of Israel is still open. This wall of separation is destroying the lives of the Palestinian people. It separates farmers from their land and families from their friends. This wall of occupation is establishing new facts on the ground, by ensuring that the illegal Israeli settlers can stay on occupied territory. This wall of imperialism is compelling Palestinians, despairing at the hopelessness of their situation, to leave the West Bank of their own free will.
