Ethnic Cleansing West Bank

I have gradually stopped trying to understand the reason for any particular wall, or road, or fence. In reality they have no precise logic. This does not mean that the whole arrangement is irrational: the loops of the wall, the roads reserved for settlers and the occupation troops, the fences surrounding the twenty-five settlements in the region form a network of control over the landscape. This network is not a way to protect the settlements. It has a different purpose, to snare the Palestinians in its coils, to trap them within enclaves where there lives will not be — already are not — possible. As you travel around the region, you see before your eyes the advanced development of the three phases of the annexation: isolate, enclose, clear out.
