Kudos to columnist Brian Peterson for his insightful and much needed column regarding Israel’s construction of an apartheid fence or wall around the occupied Palestinian West Bank.
Apart from inspiring increased armed resistance, including terrorism, by illegally encroaching on more Palestinian land and water resources, the fence also demonstrates the utter bankruptcy of Zionism.
It is now 107 years since Theodor Herzl et al. held the first Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland and 55 years since the first mass expulsion of Palestinians and the creation of Israel. After all the suffering it has brought to the Middle East and the hundreds of billions of dollars expended on its behalf, all Zionism can offer Jews is another ghetto. How bitterly ironic.
