As explained in the previous question, almost all the layout of the separation fence is made of wire, so we could wonder why journalists like Pedro Brieger ask themselves “why did Israel build a wall taller than the Berlin Wall?” (see question 56) The comparison of the label can only be used to associate the Israeli case with a wall condemned by history. This is a manipulation (intentional?). The Berlin Wall was not built to avoid suicidal attacks, but to impede citizens from escaping their supposed “paradise”. In his book 100 Questions about the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict, the Argentinean journalist writes: “Throughout hundreds of kilometers the wall is partially built of concrete and in others of barbed wire. The concrete parts are 8 meters high, duplicating the disdained Berlin Wall”. If this author wrote correctly, he should write than 96% of the fence is made of wire, so his comparison to the Berlin Wall becomes void. He continues: “The wire parts look like a border between two countries with a fence in the middle of about 3 meters - in many parts electrified – and on both sides, there are roads for military vehicles… As there are more parts made of wire than concrete, and to avoid comparisons with the Berlin Wall, Israelis talk about a ‘security fence’”. The wall is called a fence… because it is made of wire in almost all its layout. The fence has electronic sensors (it is not electrified as he describes), designed to alert the Israeli forces of infiltration attempts. As the cement blocks are almost exclusively in the surrounding areas of Jerusalem, journalists (most of them working on site) feel “more comfortable” filming cement than wire.
