The Security Fence is Gorgeous

After being treated for years to media descriptions of Israel’s security fence as an eyesore, imagine my surprise to discover, while riding along the Jerusalem highway, that it is gorgeous. Those sections cordoning Jerusalem off from some of the nearby Arab villages are of modest height, comprised of beautiful sand- and rose-colored bricks. The bricks are artistically arranged in a design that blends with the sandy, sunlit surroundings. People in the U.S. would pay top dollar for this kind of environmentally sensitive landscaping.

    It's strange how the fence, a simple measure that has saved lives on all sides-
    seems to only get condemned by the media!
