The Israeli government and its U.S. supporters cite security as the paramount reason for the West Bank barrier restricting Palestinian access to Israeli population centers. Yet more barriers are being built dividing Palestinian from Palestinian. Why? Israeli settlements continue to be built and expanded on the Palestinian side of the barrier. The number of military checkpoints and closures has risen to some 550 in the West Bank. What are the real reasons for these measures?

Dr. Sharat G. Lin argues that justice is the key to peace for both sides. He writes on global political economy, the Middle East, India, labor migration, public health, and the environment. He has lived for many years in the Middle East.
