The Apartheid Wall

There are several ways one can view this picture of Palestinian men using a rope to “illegally” scale the 8 meter (26 feet) high Israeli barrier wall separating the West Bank from Jerusalem: one can view them as lawbreakers, as do Zionists; or one can admire their tenacity & fearlessness in crossing in such a makeshift & dangerous way, risking possible injuries to find under the table work in Israel.

Anyway you look at it, it this monstrous impediment fully deserves the appellation given it by Palestinians: the Apartheid Wall.
