Hmm…what have we here? Has Israel started a trend? My heavens, can’t imagine an entity less likely to be imitated, especially by her enemies, but it appears to be true.
Spain plans to build a third high-security fence between its enclave Melilla and Morocco as an added measure to keep out immigrants who have repeatedly stormed the barriers in recent weeks, Interior Ministry delegate Jose Fernandez Chacon said Tuesday
Seems like the great unwashed and unwanted hordes, desperate for work, are risking death and dismemberment:
|Hundreds of poor sub-Saharan African immigrants gathered in northern Morocco have stormed the fences repeatedly over the past two weeks in a bid to enter Europe. Five immigrants were killed in a similar charge last week at Ceuta, Spain’s other enclave on the northern Moroccan coast. Both city enclaves already have twin 3-meter (10-foot) razor fences around their perimeters.|
Sounds like a return to the Middle Ages, doesn’t it? Except for that part about the razor wire — which the medieval city fathers would’ve used had they had it.
Meanwhile, not too far away,
|Egypt has started to build a security fence around the Red Sea resort of Sharm al-Sheikh to try to stop attacks on the town, security officials say.|
|The officials said the fence would stretch for 20km (12 miles) and force vehicles wanting to enter the town to pass through one of four checkpoints.|
|More than 60 people were killed in July when suicide bombers launched attacks outside two hotels and a market.|
Yes, it does sound like Israel gave everyone else a great idea. Clever rascals, those Zionists.
