The US is right, and hypocritical as usual. We should abandon our many occupations around the world, station our troops on our borders, and just gun down anyone who tries to enter. No visas, no visitors, problem solved. Israel should do the same. Knock down the occupation wall built on Arab land, rebuild the wall along the legitimate, international recognized 1967 green line, withdraw from all arab territories and simply gun down anyone who tries to cross the wall. What happens on the other side simply isn't Israel's concern.
