When I woke up and turned my computer, I saw this Google Page showing the cracks on the infamous Israeli Wall which apparently were done by international solidarity of Palestinian and Western People. I couldn’t believe what I saw … . . , and then I rubbed the sleep from my eyes and saw it was to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall - I hope one day soon, my dream will be REALITY ! 1989: Berliners celebrate the fall of the Wall The Berlin Wall has been breached after nearly three decades keeping East and West Berliners apart. At midnight East Germany’s Communist rulers gave permission for gates along the Wall to be opened after hundreds of people converged on crossing points. They surged through cheering and shouting and were be met by jubilant West Berliners on the other side. Ecstatic crowds immediately began to clamber on top of the Wall and hack large chunks out of the 28-mile (45-kilometre) barrier. It had been erected in 1961 on the orders of East Germany’s former leader Walter Ulbricht stop people leaving for West Germany. Since 1949 about 2.5 million people had fled East Germany. After 1961, the Wall and other fortifications along the 860-mile (1,380-kilometre) border shared by East and West Germany have kept most East Germans in. Many of those attempting to escape have been shot dead by border guards. The Israeli West-Bank barrier is a barrier being constructed by the State of Israel, consisting of a network of fences with vehicle-barrier trenches surrounded by an on average 60 meter wide exclusion area (90%) and high concrete walls up to 8 meters high (10%). It is located mainly on Israeli-occupied territories in the West Bank and partly along the 1949 Armistice line, or “Green Line” between Israel and Jordan which now demarcates the West Bank. About 90-95% of the barrier will be constructed as a “multi-layered fence system” with the IDF’s preferred design having three fences, pyramid-shaped stacks of barbed wire on the two outer fences, a lighter-weight fence with intrusion detection equipment in the middle, an anti-vehicle ditch, patrol roads on both sides, and a smooth strip of sand for “intrusion tracking”. The barrier contains an on-average 60 metres (200 ft) wide exclusion area. The width of some sections is larger (up to 100 metres (330 ft)) due to topographic conditions. The width of some sections (about 6% of the barrier) is 3 metres (9.8 ft) where the barrier is constructed as a concrete wall up to 8 metres (26 ft) high. The IDF has installed a new crowd-dispersal weapon on top of the separation wall in Bethlehem. The new weapon, which is remote-controlled and shoots “skunk” water (putrid-smelling liquid), began operating over the last month. According to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit, the weapon can also fire tear gas, among other crowd-dispersal means.
