  14. 14. And what about Europe ? Always so ready to condemn certain others?
  15. 15. European Union Secretary-General Javier Solana and the Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs (Miguel Moratinos) erected an electrified barrier guarded continously by soldiers at Ceuta and Melilla. It serves to protect Spain from illegal Moroccan and sub-Saharian workers who try to enter its territory to escape famine.
  16. 16. There are also the famous “walls of Ireland” where, for over 30 years, Catholics and Protestants desire separation. For this, roads were divided to end the throwing of stones, hand grenades, Molotov cocktails, and various other projectiles. Entire areas of Belfast were disfigured, homes destroyed, and residents expelled, with total general international indifference.
  17. 17. But the ONLY wall called “the wall of shame” is the one built by the State Of Israel ! <ul><li>For Israel, however, the benefit of such a wall is without question: between 2002 and 2008, the number of victims of suicide bomb attacks on its soil fell from 451 to 7!. This fall of 98.5% does not apply at Eilat nor Dimoma, nor along the Judean desert, as these areas are not yet enclosed in the security barrier. </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>To build a wall to protect oneself from immigrants in poverty and misery is more legitimate then to do it in order to prevent the entering of suicide terrorist bombers? </li></ul><ul><li>I will let you answer this rhetorical question. </li></ul>
