Of course a real comparison would be measured by how the soviets regularly pulverised West Berlin from the air and occasionally launch massively destructive ground attacks destroying Berlins basic infrastructure, and preventing all flights landing, and refusing to talk to whatever government the population elected. And refusing to allow most goods into the city.
It is a good thing that Israel is the only democracy in the region, means anything other than the best equipped army running the show.
Remember too, that the Berlin wall was 96 miles long, while the Palestinian wall is significantly larger stretching out over 400 miles.
Anyway yesterday Palestinian youth destroyed a hole in Israels security wall with the Palestinian territories as a symbolic gesture to mark 25 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Like the Berlin Wall previously it snakes through Palestinian land, isolating people from their land, extended family and friends, and one day soon, this oppressive apartheid wall will one day fall. too Despite all obstacles the Palestinian peoples determination to be free remains as strong as ever. Their thirst for freedom grows, the walls that surround them, do not protect, but cruelly divide, they don't prevent a peoples existence, but only serve to incite resistance.
