Will separation wall be new Israel-Palestine border?Daoud Kuttab - Al-Monitor "...whether the Israeli security wall, which Israel has regularly insisted was not the border between Israel and Palestine, is quickly becoming just that.

The first time I saw a settlement from behind its wallsNadya Raja Tannous - Mondoweiss "Beauty is often a shallow descriptor and it can easily turn to ugliness if it is cultivated by greed. The colorful flowers were bright in the late sun but they were not beautiful.

The olive trees looked lonely and oddly contained in their prim roundabouts and, as the tall blocks of Palestinian homes with their black water barrels and beige rooftops came closer into view, I saw that there is nothing beautiful about Occupation, even on the surface; even if it looks clean, it is ultimately covered in grime." ca8/11/2013
