Good fences keep out bad neighbors

By

While the anti Israel, anti Jewish, anti American liberals decamp to Israel to protest the barrier that country is building to try to keep out murderous terrorists, while they deride  talk of building a fence along America's southern border to keep out illegal immigrants, Saudi Arabia  has quietly announced

plans to build a fence to block terrorists from crossing its 560—mile border with Iraq — another sign of growing alarm that Sunni—Shiite strife could spill over and drag Iraq's neighbors into its civil conflict.

The barrier, which hasn't been started, is part of a $12 billion package of measures including electronic sensors, security bases and physical barriers to protect the oil—rich kingdom from external threats, said Nawaf Obaid, head of the Saudi National Security Assessment Project, an independent research institute that advises the Saudi government.

Are these same protestors who so smugly proclaim their moral superiority by bragging their freedom from bigotry while denouncing everyone else now going to zip over to the Saudi—Iraqi border to try and stop the fence building?  From there will they continue to

the southeastern corner of the Saudi Arabian Peninsula, meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates is building a barrier along its border with Oman — mainly to keep out illegal migrants

I don't think so.  All those barriers.  So little time.  So they'll  continue to protest only in or about the free countries of Israel and US.  Fence them out.
