Assalaamu alaikum,

Oooh... :? What is this fence?? Is it one seperating Palestinians from Israelis? :(

Just to say, I tagged you... 6 word memoir, details here :)

wa 'alaikum assalaam Umm Ibrahim,

Yes, that is part of the wall that the Israelis built, but you have to understand that it also separates Palestinians from each other. It cuts through our neighborhoods and separates us from friends, family, work, health care and schools. I live very close to the wall, and it has had a huge impact on my life. Please see this older post of mine for a look at the wall in my neighborhood:
the end of the road

I read the post.... subhan Allah. :( I was in Palestine in 1992 and I guess it has changed enormously since then. :(
