Washington Report on Middle East Affairs;Nov2006, Vol. 25 Issue 8, p68
This article discusses various issues related to the Israeli West Bank Barrier in the West Bank, with specific reference to the book "The West Bank Wall: Unmaking Palestine," by Ray Dolphin, who is documenting humanitarian conditions in the West Bank. According to Dolphin, Israel is the only nation that has not declared its borders. If the path of the wall in the West Bank is declared as a part of Israel's state border, many Jerusalem residents will lose their Jerusalem residency.
