The wall was a consequence of the suicide bombings. Now they send in bombs over the walls. Apartheid is
necessary over there, unfortunately.

The wall means different things to different people. Arabs see it as separation. Jews see it as protection.

The Jews didn't put up the wall to isolate themselves. They put up the wall after the continual public
bombings of buses and shoppers and everyday people.

Perhaps because it the words, "We don't believe that the Jewish people, along among the peoples of the World, should have a nation. Please help take it from our fellow citizens," would be a too long to put on a table-cloth and have it be read during the two second news cut. mischievous

Marianne,

Dennis Prager speaks to what you just said about the security wall (~ 3:56 in the 5:45 min. video)

Actually, this entire short clip is excellent. www.prageruniversity.com

Steven, like most Americans you don't get the sarcasm by these ISRAELI demonstrators. Funny to them and to the rest of the planet, but enraging to most Americans. Lighten up.

Humor, to be effective, has to be based on the truth. That's a core rule of comedy; the other is that humor is often at someone else's expense.

If the "joke" is not truthful, noone will laugh at it. They may be Israeli, but what they are saying isn't the truth, as other commenters have shown you.

None are laughing. It isn't funny because it isn't true.

As Rush would say, "Stop the tape!" I like Dennis Prager, but he's hardly objective. Israeli arabs (those living within the green line of what is internationally recognized as Israel) do not have all the benefits of citizenship that Jewish Israelis do. Remember, Israel chooses to refer to itself as a Jewish state, which by it's very nature is incompatible with being a democracy. Look at Egypt, or Saudi Arabia.

I only posted this because it is sarcastic humor by ISRAELIS. Like I said, everyone gets the humor but Americans.

By your criteria, then, so is France or Germany because they are states for French and Germans. Egypt and Saudi Arabia are hardly democracies since the first is an oligarcy and the other is a monarchy, but there is nothing in and of itself incompatible with a confessional state (which Israel is not) and a Republic (which we are, as opposed to a democracy).
