Israel is moving forward with the construction of an immoral Gaza border wall. The international community must come together and condemn this terrible immorality.
Israel has announced that they are beginning the construction of a new Gaza border wall. As Nancy Pelosi has so rightly informed us, walls are an “immorality,” so what Israel is doing is highly immoral and must be condemned by the global community.
Israel said Sunday that work to strengthen its border with the Gaza Strip had entered a new phase, with construction starting on a massive new barrier along the frontier.
“Over the weekend we began building the above-ground barrier along the Gaza border,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told journalists before the weekly cabinet meeting.
The barrier, set to stand six metres (20 feet) off the ground, “will prevent terrorists from Gaza from penetrating into our territory on the ground”, he said in Hebrew.
Netanyahu gave no further details but a defence ministry statement said that work on the structure began Thursday.
It is set to follow the 65-kilometre (40-mile) course of an underground barrier also under construction meant to neutralise the threat of cross-border tunnels built by Gaza militants.
At its western end, the statement said, the above-ground barrier would join a fortified sea wall jutting into the Mediterranean, aimed at blocking Palestinian attacks by water.
“It’s massive and especially strong,” the ministry said in an accompanying video clip.
This type of immoral action by the Israeli government must not be allowed to stand. Who do these Jews think they are to build such a wall? They should be building bridges with the Palestinian people but instead they choose to build walls. This shows that these Jews are corrupted with hate inside of their hearts.
The world can’t sit idly by and let this horribly immoral behavior stand. The United States government needs to suspend all foreign aid to Israel and apply economic sanctions against them for building such a racist and hateful wall. In fact, economic sanctions on Israel should remain in place until Israel tears down all of the walls they have built to divide people.
Of course, the construction of such an immorality is no surprise considering that Israel has a very dark history of racial hate. Besides the contempt they have for the Palestinian people, there is widespread racial discrimination against Ethiopian Jews inside of Israel. Israeli police regularly commit acts of violence and even kill Ethiopian Jews because of their skin color. These grave injustices are why we have seen Ethiopian Jews protesting in the streets.
The fact of the matter is that Israel is a nation built on the flawed idea of Jewish racial supremacy. It is time for Israel to reject these outdated ideas and embrace a future in which there is true racial equality for all people.
