"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

(Ynet News) "This is not against the Palestinian people," Clinton, a New York Democrat, said during a tour of a section of the barrier being built around Jerusalem. "This is against the terrorists. The Palestinian people have to help to prevent terrorism. They have to change the attitudes about terrorism."
Does a fence make good neighbors? Apparently so, according to Senator Clinton whose latest statement echoes with clarity and reason, something her party seems to lack as elections approach in 2006. But does building a wall to protect ones citizens justify the potential hurt (economically) of their neighbor next door? India would think so.
(Times Online) INDIA is accelerating the construction of a 2,500-mile fence to seal its border with Bangladesh amid growing fears that its Muslim neighbor could become "a new Afghanistan".
Indian officials and western diplomats have been alarmed by an increase in terrorist attacks by militant groups linked to Al-Qaeda and by the Dhaka government's failure to crack down on them. (Media Source*)
Hat Tip: The Black Kettle
Critics will probably dispute the need of a security fence in both India and Israel, claiming that such structures aid in the poverty of those nations. Even if this were the case, it is not the responsibility of Israel or India to look after another nation financially to the destruction of their own. Israel has seen the benefit of these fences (as they have thwarted terrorist attacks) and it may be in India's best interest to complete their own.
