TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak plans to finish building the separation wall around planned Israeli settlement zone E1 which cuts off the West Bank from Jerusalem, Israeli media reported.

The proposal to close a three-kilometer gap in the wall will prevent Palestinian access to E1, where activists erected a tented protest village last week, Israeli daily Haaretz reported on Monday.

If completed, the wall would surround Palestinian village al-Zayyem on both sides, the newspaper said.

Barak also decided to move ahead with building a road past al-Zayyem for Palestinians to travel from the southern to northern West Bank without entering Israeli settlements in E1.

The plan will be put to Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu for approval next week.

You can build it. But the world of resistance & INTERNATIONAL LAWS,&human rights,will still come to tear it down.
"Mr Gorbochev,tear down this wall!"
The Zionist apartheid wall,on stolen land from Palestine,will COME DOWN,because that's what right & Israel&Judaism,will be SAFER then.
NOT radical Zionism!
We don't want that safe!
But Israel back behind the '67 lines? Yes!
"And the walls came tumbling down"!!!

If the Palestinians in East Jerusalem are cut off from the rest of Palestine, then they have become Israeli citizens??? Do they get the vote in Israeli ("only true democracy in the Middle East") elections?

I sympathize with the al-Zayyem residents but if we don't want them access to where we're building, they're not. If the PA says that's a "red line" for us doing this and now, as head of a U.N.-recognized nation, it wants to haul our butts to the International Court of Justice, try and get sanctions on us, invoke shutdowns and strikes, etc., it can go ahead. Wherever we build, we build. @ 2), No, they don't become citizens of Israel but, as permanent residents of Jerusalem (over 90% of (cont.)

them, at any rate) they can vote in Jerusalem municipal elections. True, there are obstacles to cope with (our separation wall; extra travel distances; crossing checkpoints; making more time to get to the voting locations; etc.) but when everybody over here lives in such close quarters you soon learn if you really want to do something, you cope with life and do it.
