Israel's Wall

I'm not harping on this topic because of any hidden agenda, okay? For those of you worried about such things, I mean. It's just that when I've heard talk of the "wall" or "security barrier" I had no idea of how massive it was and I find these articles interesting.

Like this one which, unlike most of the articles I've found actually has a few pictures.

Decent photos seem to be difficult to find even though this is certainly a story that lends itself to dramatic pictures.

The front page of Canada's Globe and Mail had one today, although I don't know how long it will be up. This is the first one I've seen that really gave me a sense of how high the wall was. Even though I'd heard a report that described how the wall "blocked out the sunlight" on buildings close to it, it was hard to imagine until I saw this photo.

This story offers some line drawings showing the scope of the project.
