    A fence is usually made of wood or brick. It is no more than six feet high. It does not have guard towers on it. It does not destroy the land for many yards on at least one side. What Israel has been building is not a fence. It is a Wall - a wall longer and higher than the Berlin Wall - a wall built not on the land of Israel but on the occupied Palestinian land. Just like the Berlin Wall this wall, a wall of shame, will one day come down.
