Saudi Apartheid Wall

\par \par

\par December 13, 2006 - It looks like Israelis are not the only ones concerned about their security.\par

\par

\par Saudi Arabia is moving forward with plans to build a fence to keep terrorists from crossing its border with Iraq. It is an ambitious project, complete with electronic sensors, and is expected to take five to six years to build.\par

\par

\par Brigadier General Abdul-Karim Khalaf, spokesman for Iraq's interior ministry, supports the plan. This is what he said - yes, he really said this - these are his exact words:\par

\par

\par "If the Saudis want to build border defences to stop the infiltration of terrorists, they can do that to protect their borders."\par

\par

\par So when can we expect to hear from the International Solidarity Movement and B'Tselem about the "Saudi Apartheid Wall"? Is anybody home?\par

\par

\par Meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates is building a similar fence along its border with Oman. And the United States is considering one for its border with Mexico.\par

\par

\par Someone must put a stop to this global apartheid. Is the U.N. listening?\par
