Arens speculates about the fence's effectiveness, and is willing to gamble on the security of Israel. Indeed the IDF's presence in the West Bank is needed to prevent missiles, but the fence already has proven itself as good means to stop penetration of terrorists to Israel. Arens is completely illogical here and does not sound as an expert: such a fence is a great help for any protecting army. The current fence's layout is another issue: It is stupid in many locations and guided by considerations different from Israel's security. The layout unnecessarily causes suffering to many Palestinians and should be corrected as soon as possible. A proper separation fence can contribute to the Peace process and normalization by preventing unnecessary friction. When normalization is reached, whenever this happens, the fence can be torn down.
