Great. Now let’s get ours built. And why not put the military on the border while you’re at it?
This article here has some information about Israel’s border barrier with Egypt including the photos of the previous fence which wasn’t effective enough. The main purpose of the barrier was to stop African illegal alien infiltrators from entering. The fence was very successful and note that Egypt did not object to the building of the fence.
So what are we waiting for?
