Chris:

Wishing you coinciding chaos, cosmos, and charism.

Contrary to the last picture (which dates from 2003; since then the barrier has proven to be a successful homeland security tool), see “Pilgrims Flock to Bethlehem’s Nativity Grotto on Christmas”, http://www.voanews.com/content/christmas-bethelehem/1572032.html

ER seems to be a little bit off in his assessment. Tourism was down by over 25% according to the article. As for security created by the wall, it is hard to determine if it has been successful. It is less than 70% complete on the West Bank so Palestinians can still make it into Israel if they really wanted to do harm. What might account for the increased Israeli security is that from 2004 to the end of Sept. 2013 there have been 4,421 Palestinians killed as a result of the occupation including 930 children. Meanwhile there have been 269 Israelis killed. Also, the International Court of Justice, The UN Security Council and General Assembly have all ruled the wall built on Palestinian land as determined by the 1967 Green Line is illegal.
