This Should Be Interesting - Netanyahu to Delineate Israel's Border.
Israeli prime minister, Bibi Netanyahu, has announced a plan to encircle the state of Israel with a security fence saying, "In our neighbourhood, we need to protect ourselves from wild beasts."
I'm not sure whether Bibi has really thought this one through. Fortifications don't just keep people out, they keep people in.
The bigger problem is this security fence effectively claims whatever territory it incorporates as part of Israel which, I suspect, will mean most of the Palestinian or occupied territory also known as the West Bank.
