We could keep thousands employed with the wall just painting over grafitti.

I once saw an illegal immigrant on the news who was being interviewed about the proposed 700-ft-long fence along the Mexican/U.S. Border.

Through an interpretor, he said: "No matter how high you build your wall, we will build a ladder that is even taller."

Even in 1,000 illegal aliens succeed in crossing per year----------that beats the hell out of ca. 100K of said criminals doing so.

I don't think home depot carries those. 20 foot max. 701 would void the warranty.

Or tunnel under it. Big black market going on along the border with Gaza and Egypt. I honestly don't think anything would be 100% foolproof.

I searched for 'Bethlehem' on Flickr, expecting to find the spot where Jesus was born, but instead I found out a fourth of the pics being of this monster.

Oh, one last one...

"I am a Berliner" (?)
Ask an Israeli or Palestinian how their perpetually at-war state is working out for them...

That's why it's always good to ensure that border walls/fences have a deep concrete foundation which I believe many do.

Two differences there:

#1: the Palestinians do not seem to grap the concept of birth control; their breeding makes Mexicans look like celibates.

#2: The former like to lob rockets into Israel on a regular basis-----------whereupon the latter; once goaded, start blowing Palestine to smithereens.

Memo to Palestine: grow up.

Well, that is the problem; there IS no Palestine. There used to be, but it was taken over to create Israel.

It is funny how so many people on this board are against illegal immigration here in the USA but cannot have empathy for the people who suffered a real invasion of their country so many years ago.
