In this moving account of the barriers between Israelis and Palestinians, leading Israeli journalist Isabel Kershner traces the route of the wall Israel is building and reports its profound effects on people living on both sides. Kershner provides rich and insightful portraits of Israeli settlers feeling abandoned on the wrong side of the fence; Palestinian farmers angry at being cut off from their lands and groves; Arab families split up in a town now divided by the barrier; and Israelis protesting that it is an obstacle to peace. Exploring the reasons for the barrier and its political and moral implications, Kershner focuses on the people committed to their causes. As the future relationship between Israelis and Palestinians is being determined, this important book addresses one of the most controversial solutions.
From the Publisher:
An analysis of the controversial security barrier being built in the West Bank considers how it is having a profound political and moral effect on the Israelis and Palestinians on both sides, from settlers who are finding themselves stranded on the wrong side, to divided families, to farmers who have been cut off from their land.

Annotation:
The long and winding fence, wall, or barrier built by Israel under Ariel Sharon's government has engendered great criticism worldwide, but is defended by Sharon as a necessary tool in fighting terror. Isabel Kershner, a correspondent for the Jerusalem Report, decided to find out how those on both sides of the wall actually felt about it. She interviewed both Israelis (including Israeli Arabs) and Palestinians, confirming that the wall is changing the lives of members of many different groups, including farmers, settlers, soldiers, and all who have been caught up in the long and bitter struggle. Some see it as a clear sign of an apartheid state, while others allow that this bold and practical initiative may, by lessening incidences of violence, lead to a real two-state solution. Kershner also provides an account of the wall's controversial origins, the debates surrounding its course, its moral implications, and its prospects for the future.
