The left denies that the wall ended the violence

Leftists - who never opposed the intifada in the first place - now argue that the wall did not stop the intifada.

Their theory is that, by pure coincidence, the jihadis decided to stop killing Jews. What a stroke of luck!


Israel-hater Gary Spedding has called for me to be sacked for defending Israel.
Here he argues that the Israeli wall did not stop violence. So Israel should take the wall down.
Of course the idea that Israelis should take security advice from someone like Spedding is comical.

The absurd analogy with the Berlin Wall

Cartoon by Scott Stantis, Birmingham News, Alabama.

The kind of tossers who complain about Israeli walls and checkpoints are exactly the kind of people who were ambivalent about the violence that led to the construction of those walls and checkpoints.

Robin Gunningham ("Banksy")

British graffiti artist "Banksy" (real name Robin Gunningham) has long had a hostility towards the life-saving Israeli wall.

Banksy painted this on the Israeli wall in 2005.
From here.
I must say I like his art, but this makes no sense on the wall. It would have made a lot of sense in East Berlin, but makes no sense here.
The children are being kept out of paradise, but the people to blame are the children's own families and community. Paradise (Israel) would be happy to let them in if they did not threaten them. If they were willing to be peaceful neighbours, they could visit Israel any time. They would also be a lot richer, as well as freer, and happier. It is their own addiction to violence that keeps them trapped behind a wall.
Why not paint suicide bombers trying to dig through the wall so they can kill children playing with buckets and spades on the other side?
Why not paint Palestinians building the wall themselves to keep themselves out of Israel?

Banksy home page in Dec 2006 shows Joseph and Mary stopped by the Israeli wall.
Rather ignoring the inconvenient truth that no Jew could go to Bethlehem today because of Islamic Jew-hatred.
Joseph and Mary would be killed if they went to Bethlehem today.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I like debate. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
