Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara recently visited the Great Wall of China, allowing him to make the obvious comparison with Israel’s security fence, dubbed by leftists as the Apartheid Wall
Unlike the Chinese Great Wall, the “wall” in Israel extends less than 10% of the total length of the fortification, the rest of which is a fence. Netanyahu said that the Great Wall inspired him as Israel built the security fence along the southern border with Egypt. Netanyahu has said in the past that the fence has achieved its primary objectives of stemming the flood of African immigrants.
