Apartheid wall to cut through Jerusalem.
by Jeff Hook
THE CONTROLLED MEDIA has been busy marketing the Gaza withdrawal as another historic concession by peace-loving Jews who just want to get along. However, unbeknownst to the lemmings, Israel's cabinet has quietly approved a decision to extend the so-called security fence well into East Jerusalem.
In violation of international law, Israel will rid the Holy City of as many Christians and Muslims as possible by building the giant border wall in a path that takes it directly down the center of unwanted, non-Jewish neighborhoods.
So far this year, fifty homes near Jerusalem's Old City have been bulldozed to pave the way for the giant edifice, while another sixty-four have demolition orders pending against them. As they're destroyed, new Jewish settlements sprout up. In fact, Israel plans to build 3,500 housing units in an area which would complete the encirclement of East Jerusalem by Israeli settlements.
As Muslims are cut-off from the Holy City, military analysts predict an increase in suicide bomber attacks against U.S. targets in Iraq. Some describe the giant land grab as another boon for Al Qaeda recruiting efforts.
