Is it the End of the World?

Israel’s security barrier, termed an “apartheid wall” by Jimmy Carter groupies, has saved Jewish lives. Period.

The Bible speaks of a time when Israel will be a land of unwalled villages. There is some debate about what this means, exactly. It could be that this situation doesn’t presently exist, due to the security wall, which snakes through the country and keeps out Palestinian terrorists.

Others say that, no, in ancient times the villages had barriers to prevent attacks and wild animals from harming the inhabitants.

Whatever the “unwalled villages” refer to in terms of where we are in history, I applaud the presence of this security barrier. I like Jews and I like seeing them alive.
