Annexation over Security

"The moment the separation fence annexes to Israel locales inhabited by about a quarter of a million Palestinians who are not citizens of Israel, it can be stated clearly that the consideration is a political consideration of annexing territory, even at the price of abandoning security."
Danny Rubenstein is definitely not among the most left-wing commentators in Ha'aretz. In today's op-ed, he points out that the route of the wall in the Jerusalem area is not secure at all and has been built for the benefit of business and Palestinian collaborators. It cuts neighbourhoods in half, leaving children unable to get to school and adults unable to get to work. For the benefit of the few, the wall has destroyed the lives of many.
