4. Great but...
Dan ,   Herzliya, Israel   (03.14.08)
I was wondering if the ecological consequences are considered? I would be interested to know what effects these fences have on the ecology...
5. I'm against the Apartheid wall
Mandela   (03.14.08)
Unlike the Aprtheid wall, it's Israel's good right to build a fence along its internationally recognized border. It's a right but that doesn't mean it is right. There are better ways to waste NIS 1.4 billion.

Wise Man ,   USA   (03.14.08)
Can any one dig a tunnel under the fence to avoide sensors ?
10. unilateral violation of treaty is not sovereignty practice
ecology and deals   (03.14.08)
the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt does not permit creating ecology problem to Egypt. A deal created created by two parties has to be modified only on the consent of the two parties.

12. fence
colin   (03.15.08)
All talk NO ACTION The fence can be erected without all the public advertiseing by the politicians.The cost of keeping refugees and thier deporting is more expensive than a fence.More employment for workers that are building the fence.(Union complaints)The UN and the EU must not have time to demand from Israel to stop making Egypt a jail.because of the fence.Suggest making the fence electrified to stop anybody from getting through.
13. good thing Israel pulled out of gaza so the south would be s
arthur ,   jersey city usa   (03.15.08)
when will Israel learnthat unilateral concessions (surrenders) do not work they only get Israelis killed. The so called reason to pull out of gaza was to consolidate borders and deprieve pa/hamas of a reason to hate Israel. The gov't wastruly far seeing What is needed is a new gov't. olmert and friends are allowing egypt to violate one of the few surviving clauses of camp Davd and station more troops in he sinai
14. The UN et al will condemn Israel for the fence
arthur ,   jersey city usa   (03.15.08)

It would be fair for Egypt to be the first Arab country to take its part in the historical responsibility of the Arab refugees problem and help to solve it by accepting the Gazan Arabs and integrating them.
