The JWV Opposes U.S. Support of Palestinian Position on Security Fence

Winter 2003

The Jewish War Veterans of the USA (JWV) supports Israel's plan to construct a security fence and opposes U.S. pressure to remove and to halt construction of the security fence. The U.S. is effectively supporting the Palestinian position that the fence is harmful to Palestinian interests, which would allow for terrorists, suicide bombers, and undocumented workers to enter Israel with impunity. This would deny to Israel the right of sovereignty to protect its borders and would be similar to the removal of border patrols and visa restrictions now imposed by the United States on people coming into and out of America's borders. The JWV urges the Bush administration to support the Israeli position on the construction and retention of the security fence in the interest of greater security in the Middle East.
