American Editorial Review

Dear Friend,

Most recent editorials and op-eds related to Israel have been about the fence/wall. They do not question its existence, but rather how it has been placed on Palestinian land to create more "facts on the ground" to further reduce Palestinian land and their mobility within it. For contrast, I have included two editorials that support the fence as currently being built, but they only argue about the need for a barrier and ignore the Israeli land grab.

Because most of you only have limited time for reading, I have arranged the articles in each category with those at the top that I consider most insightful and important. Let me know if you find this helpful or if you have any other suggestions.
