Israel’s security wall: A model for America?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On assignment in Israel, I had a fascinating conversation with IDF Col. (Ret) Dany Tirza, who headed strategic development for Israel’s security wall.

Construction began in 2002, and had reduced terror attacks originating in the West Bank by approximately 99 per cent.

Tirza tells me that between three to five people still try to cross the barrier illegally every day. Most are criminals but he adds that others include:

"Palestinian women that are running away from their families. You know what happens to a Palestinian wife if her husband suspects her. She'd better run away."

Tirza and I also discuss the dramatic demographic shift in the nearby town of Bethlehem. Once majority Christian, it is now overwhelmingly Muslim. I asked who was responsible for driving the Christians out, and his answer may surprise you.

We also talked about the logistics of the barrier, and whether or not this design would be suitable for construction on the U.S. southern border.

Do You Want To Help Prevent Future Forest Fires In Israel? Please Share… and Fund

Donation of a $120 from 5,000 or $10,000 from 60 of you will solve this problem.

There will be more forest fires in Israel. The JNF is planting forests in the Galilee where much of Israel’s semi-dead-sterile soils that are dry packed and do not absorb water. They are overgrown with non-native desert shrubs that burn at a higher temperature igniting trees and causing forest fires. Planting in semi-dead-soils without improving it is a waste of water and trees.

Using Holistic Grazing with Texas Longhorn Cattle, We Can Increase Soil Bacteria, Soil Fungi, And Improve Soil Anatomy And Physiology. This Brings life back to soils causing increased grass growth and destroys shrub growth. It also increases water and carbon adsorption and decreases floods and forest fires.

Texas Longhorn Cattle are desert cattle that can eat cactus with all the thorns. They also eat the shrubs that cause the fires.

The Israel Longhorn Project will not be a private ranch. It will be very different. We will establish partnerships and work with Israel’s Department of Agriculture, the Agriculture Extension department, Hebrew University, other Israeli Universities, Israeli Agriculture High Schools and Jewish Nation Fund. It will be an international community ranch that does educational, research and Agriculture Development work. Helping all Israeli ranches then East Africa, Egypt and Jordan. Building peace and understanding between peoples and nations from the bottom up. It is the only to build peace.

Great show Ezra. I’m in Ontario Canada, well beyond angry with Trudeau’s assault on our Country and my fellow Countrymen and Women. President Donald Trump should build a wall to secure the border between Canada and the US to protect both countries, and send Trudeau the bill. If my tax dollars were going into infrastructure like that I would not mind. We’ve brought up how Trudeau is aiding known terrorists and the treason act laid out in the criminal code of Canada, Yet nothing is done, No charges laid against him for the act of treason, and I’m skeptical about the so called opposition who do not oppose. I would like to know why they don’t. It just dosen’t add up.

Trump should start a corporation called “The Wall for America” and sell stock.

Trump has a secret army . They are called trade unions. People without a job and never intend to have a job getting in the way of men and women who want a big bucks job? I wonder who will win?

Trump is going to have a hard time building a wall. Can you imagine how many protesters will come out to block construction of the wall?
commented 2017-03-09 02:17:59 -0500
Jay Kelly does that go for Egypt and Lebanon and Jordan as well?

Jay Kelly they do not live in camps, and many live in Israel with full rights. And the ones who choose to live under Hamas and the other terrorist leaders do not want a human resolution , they only attack when given more land.

It seems we have to remind ourselves that the Palestinians were moved temporarily into refugee camps and have been there for decades. Is the goal to kill them all off or to work toward a human resolution?

The United States still holds the upper hand, but at a subsidy cost of something like one million dollars U. S. per day just in Israel defense spending.

Are Palestinians even human beings?

Now I want a wall with the US, to keep out their riff raff.
commented 2017-03-08 23:56:09 -0500
For security , I would want a wall bordering Palestine.
For economic reasons, I would want a wall bordering Mexico.
commented 2017-03-08 19:49:26 -0500
Me too, I want one of those Israel/Canada caps.
commented 2017-03-08 18:53:29 -0500
Hey, where do you get one of those cool Israel/Canada caps that Dany was wearing?
commented 2017-03-08 18:51:57 -0500
The biggest problem with fences or walls are tunnels. I imagine that listening devices help but determined tunnelers can work moving one pebble at a time,which would take some time but with patience could be successful.

The best way to rid Israel of the Palestinian aggressors is to get rid of the Palestinians. Any which way is easy,
