    stop picking on the irrelevant details. A wall, fence, minefield, sci-fi electromagnetic barrier. doesnt matter. it is a barrier. a metaphoric wall. the palestinians started violent resistance against the jews, when the jews started immigrating in the thousands, coming with thier weapons and starting thier militias with plans to build a state of israel on what was promised to be the state of palestine by the british. yes the british doublecrossed the palestinians. and rolled out the red carpet to what later became the state of israel. i dont jusityfy violence. but resistance is resistance. just like jews came back thousands of years to reclaim thier former country. many palestinians are coming back decades later to try to reclaim thier country. and yes the zionist jews shed alot of blood, through terrorism in the proccess of creating israel. hagana, irgun, lehi all have blood on thier hands. being stronger and having the upper hand doesnt give you the right to brand a freedomfighter as a terrorist. you have dictators in the arab world who refer to democracy seekers as terrorists, and successfully indicts them of terrorism and executes the. and across the border, IDF does the same to palestinians.
