    At the November 3, 2015 press conference to announce his new book, Donald Trump reminds us, "Walls work. All you have to do is ask Israel." What has been the result of the border fence Israel built in 2013 to prevent infiltration from the Egypt? According to Joel Pollak of in June 2013, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has touted the success of a new border fence that Israel built along its boundary with Egypt to stop illegal infiltrators. In a statement posted at his government website, Netanyahu reported that illegal crossings had declined 99.9%, from 2,000 per month to...

    SAIR, West Bank -Israeli police killed a West Bank construction worker as he tried to sneak into Jerusalem on Sunday, shedding rare light on the risks taken by thousands of Palestinians who are desperate for jobs but are denied permits to enter Israel. The victim, Izzedine Kawazbeh, a 35-year-old father of five, was shot after scaling Israel's towering separation barrier by rope and dashing across a wide stretch of road heavily patrolled by Israeli police. Israel started building the barrier in 2002 during a wave of Palestinian suicide bombings that killed hundreds of Israelis. The last one was in February...

    Concern growing of new wave of popular resistance. The Palestinian Authority is funding and even participating in violent demonstrations against the construction of the West Bank security barrier, defense officials said on Thursday, warning that if not controlled the protests could escalate into a new wave of a Palestinian resistance. The IDF has noted a growing presence of PA government officials at the weekly demonstrations north of Modiin Illit, in Bilin, Naalin and near the settlement of Neveh Tzuf (Halamish), where a top PA official was spotted two weeks ago. According to information obtained by Israel, the escalation and funding...

    Riyadh, Asharq Al-Awsat- As a result of the violation of the sovereignty of Saudi territory last week by Huthist elements, the Kingdom is in the process of setting up a security fence along its boarders with Yemen. This has become an important option in view of the escalation of the activities of the Al-Qaeda organization in Yemeni territory on the one hand, and the emergence of the Huthist rebellion threat on the other. Despite information about undeclared reservations on the part of Sanaa over the building of a security fence between Yemen and Saudi Arabia, Riyadh might find itself obliged...

    Construction of the Security fence between Israel and the West Bank began in 2002. It's purpose was to prevent terrorists from entering Israel. The fence has been very successful, from 2002 from the time the construction began to 2007 the number of homicide bombing attacks fell from 55 to 1. And that's just one type of Palestinian terror. Heck even the terrorists admit that the fence has worked. Any time the Palestinians have problems with the route of the fence they can appeal to the Israeli Supreme court where they have won a host of cases forcing route changes. So...

    SNIPPET: The ceasefire announced by Hamas on January 18, never a sterling example of the genre, further deteriorated on Sunday as over 15 rockets and mortar shells were fired at Israel from Gaza. That night, when Israeli planes struck back at Hamas targets, many Palestinians reported that Israel had telephoned them warnings to evacuate. There were no casualties in the strike. During Operation Cast Lead, Israel reduced Palestinian casualties with such measures as disseminating warnings in leaflets or SMS messages and dropping small, harmless bombs on rooftops before attacks. It prompted former British colonel Richard Kemp to say that I...

    In the coming days, leaders of the Presbyterian Church USA will take up a controversial issue whether to divest from Israel. Why do these Presbyterians think as they do? Their critics overlook the obvious: Its because of whats being taught in some Presbyterian seminaries, where future church leaders are inculcated with the moral and religious foundations that shape their world views. Leaders of the Presbyterian Church USA take up an old obsession in the coming days: Israel. Theyre expected to vote on whether to divest from some multinationals doing business there a controversial process launched at last years...

    ON March 28, Israelis will elect a new prime minister to replace the ailing Ariel Sharon. But I'd bet my last shekel that I'll continue to hear the phrase "Ariel Sharon's apartheid wall." It's a phrase spoken make that spewed on almost every university campus I visit in North America and Europe. Among a new generation of Muslims, this is what Mr. Sharon will be known for long after he leaves office: unilaterally erecting a barrier, most of it a fence, some of it a wall, that cuts Arab villages in half, chokes the movement of ordinary Palestinians,...

    Avi Dichter's announcement this week that Israel would unilaterally disengage from large sections of the West Bank if Kadima won the upcoming elections, brought to surface one of the most current crucial arguments within the IDF General Staff over the security importance of settlements in Judea and Samaria. While anticipating a second disengagement under the next government, some in the IDF were taken by surprise with Dichter's announcement that the disengagement would be a strictly "civilian affair" and that the army would still maintain its presence in the evacuated territories. While the defense establishment prefers not to enter into...

    Have you noticed how many countries around the world are building security fences? There is a near mania to build walls separating nations from neighbors who threaten them with illegal immigration, crime, poverty and terrorism. Some of the largest countries in the world are building them. Some of the smallest countries in the world are building them. Some of the richest countries in the world are building them. And some of the poorest countries in the world are building them. It seems security fences are for everyone except the very richest, most powerful nation in the world. Recently, for...

Bush heaped praise Thursday on Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and said prospects for Palestinian gaining a state seem to be closer than ever before.

    Monday, July 25, 2005 Justifying the Fence: A Surprising Source The New York Times is often harshly critical of Israel. OK, not all the time. Much of their reporting is factual. Some, however, does seem to have a bias. Today, however, there was a truly excellent article titled In Most Cases, Israel Thwarts Suicide Attacks Without a Shot. Yes, there are successful attacks, most recently on July 12 in Netanya. To quote a relevant point: Israel is also building a separation barrier - an electronic fence and in some places a huge concrete wall - to make it harder for...

    Despite the distribution of a video of the Arab suicide bomber who intended to blow up a hospital by the IDF, nearly all foreign news agencies chose to boycott the story altogether. An outraged former undersecretary to US President Ronald Reagan and candidate for Republican Presidential nominee, Gary Bauer wrote a scathing critique of the world medias decision to avoid the story. Excerpts from Bauers letter: If you don't get the Fox News Channel then you didn't see any of the dramatic footage of the Israeli army's arrest yesterday of a 21-year old, female Palestinian homicide-bomber, strapped with 25 pounds...

    It sounded like a crackpot idea to the political and cultural elite. Hundreds of citizens, angry about the effects of illegal immigration on our country, would travel down to the Mexican border and do something about it. The Minuteman Project would attract kooks, said the naysayers. It would encourage racism, they moaned. It would be divisive, others whined. It would provoke violence, some claimed. It would be vigilantism, cried some, including the president of the United States. Now that we've seen the Minuteman Project in action, we all know it did none of those things. What it did was shut...

Security concerns at Hanna Springs Intermediate School a registered sex offender had been seen attempting conversation with one of the female students prompted parents to see what might be done.
