Walls cannot impose justice – vrs 2

The Editor,  The Press,  Christchurch

07 February, 2017

Dear Editor:

Donald Trump’s proposed Mexican Wall is justifiably being criticized internationally. But another more sinister wall exists to annex land for a nation, namely the walls branching out from Israel.   The peoples of Israel and Palestine share claim to this land. 

Land is fundamentally important in what it provides for life of all kinds, including the cultures of the peoples occupying it. More than anything else, a peoples’ attitude to the land defines the values of justice.   Walls must not be used to try to impose a false sense of justice.

Neither a wall to keep people IN (Berlin Wall), nor a wall to keep people OUT (Mexican Wall), nor a wall to GRAB land (Israeli Wall) will bring justice.

Sincerely,

Richard Keller
