JPost: Israel began construction of an upgraded security barrier along the Gaza Strip border last week, the Defense Ministry announced on Sunday.
“On Thursday, we began working on the final component of the barrier project along the Gaza border,” said Brig.-Gen. Eran Ophir, head of the army’s fence-building project. “The barrier is unique and especially suited to threats from the Gaza Strip and will provide a maximum response to prevent entry into Israeli territory.”
The fence along the Egyptian border, which is similar to the one which will be built along the Gazan border, has slashed almost completely the number of illegal African migrants arriving in Israel. The number of infiltrations from the Sinai – with 14,669 infiltrations in 2010, to 213 in 2015, to 14 in 2016 – prompted authorities to raise the height from five meters to eight meters along a 17-kilometer stretch. There have been no infiltrations from Sinai since. more …
Opinion: Walls work, and everyone knows it. You have to wonder if the battle for the $5.7 billion for a US border wall which only covers an additional 215 linear miles leaving 1200+ miles open, is one of the reasons that the US has a spectator role in Bible prophecy.
- Of the 1,933 miles along the border, 1,279 miles is unfenced
- To cover the additional miles an another $25+ billion is needed that seems highly unlikely
(A journey along the entire 1,933-mile US-Mexico border shows the monumental task of securing it)
From deadly drugs to MS-13 killers to ME terrorists the US Congress appears to have a self-destruct death wish.
“You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates” Ezekiel 38:11.
Can you imagine Israel taking down its walls? Only a complete victory over its irascible neighbors could provide that confidence.
“Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?’”
Sheba, Dedan (Saudi Arabia), lions (Britain) young lions (US) are powerless to stop the invasion.
There is no mention of the US or Britain from Ezekiel’s war to the end of the age.
