Israel is to build a fence along much of its Sinai border with Egypt:
The two fences will cover nearly half of the 150-mile (250-kilometer) border. One section will be near the Red Sea port of Eilat. The other will be in southwest Israel, near the Gaza Strip town of Rafah.
I guess the Israelis didn’t get the memos from La Raza about how “fences don’t work.”
The planned Egypt fence, like the West Bank and Gaza barriers, is rooted largely in security concerns, along with efforts to keep illegal migrants out, Israel says.
Perhaps we should send someone over there to set them straight on the benefits of unrestrained immigration.
I noticed this, too:
Israeli officials frequently issue warnings urging citizens to avoid travel to the neighboring Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. The area is believed to be a stronghold for al-Qaida-inspired extremists.
Another jihadi stronghold? How many are there? I’ve only just got through reading up on Yemen, darn it.
