Trump has a fellow wall addict in Israel

Guardian - Binyamin Netanyahu has announced his intention to “surround all of Israel with a fence” to protect the country from infiltration by both Palestinians and the citizens of surrounding Arab states, whom he described as “wild beasts”.

The Israeli prime minister unveiled the proposal during a tour of the Jordan border area in Israel’s south, adding that the project – which would cost billions of shekels – would also be aimed at solving the problem of Hamas infiltration tunnels from Gaza, a recent source of renewed concern.

Describing the need for new walls and fences on Tuesday, Netanyahu said: “In our neighborhood, we need to protect ourselves from wild beasts."
