Perceptions

Enclosure?

slide13

Israeli Perspective

“We have to decide upon separation as a philosophy. There has to be a clear border. Without demarcating the lines, whoever wants to swallow 1.8 million Arabs will just bring greater support for Hamas.”

Yitzhak Rabin 1994

Israeli Perspective

Suicide Bombings/Terrorism

slide15

985 people have been killed by Palestinian violence and terrorism since September 2000.

Israeli Perspective

Suicide Bombings/Terrorism

slide16

Israeli Perspective

There’s been a decrease in successful suicide bomb attacks from the West Bank. The barrier has saved lives!

slide17

World Court Perspective

“The construction of the wall being built by Israel, the occupying Power, in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including in and around East Jerusalem, and its associated regime, are contrary to international law.”

International Court of Justice, July 9, 2004

slide18

Palestinian Perspective

“This is a historic day and a historic decision…The court ruling is a major blow to those racists who built the wall with the false justification of security needs.”

Palestinian Prime MinisterAhmed Qureia, 2004

slide19

Palestinian Perspective

We oppose the barrier. It has separated many of us from our lands, our work places, and our schools—our lives have been severely disrupted!

The construction of a wall between the Israeli people and the Palestinian people is seen by many as a new obstacle on the road to peaceful cohabitation.

In fact, the Holy Land does not need walls but bridges.
