As I said to Ben Jabo I have no problem with Israel erecting a checkpoint between its borders and the occupied territories. But what should be objectionable to everyone are the multiple checkpoints that keep Palestinians from traveling within their own territories. What should be objectionable to everyone is the continuing occupation and the expansion of settlements which only makes Israel more and more hated not only in the Middle East but around the world. By the way, what are Israel's borders? Are you aware that Israel seems to be the only country in the world with undefined borders? Is that because they plan more and more expansion? Undoubtedly.
