The author cites Israel's announced plan to erect a fence along its border with Syria, noting that the country has already built barriers along nearly all of its other borders. He discusses the West Bank wall between Israel and the Palestinian territories, saying it has prevented terrorist attacks against Israel but also is a form of political domination that has disrupted Palestinians' economic and social lives.
