Tilley Featured in CounterPunch

Virginia Tilley, associate professor of political science, had an article published in the Feb. 26 issue of CounterPunch magazine, titled “Its Location is not the Point: The Deeper Meaning of the Wall.” Tilley refers to Israel's “security fence.”

“The Wall's deeper import is actually obscured by those (including the ICRC and some Palestinian authorities) who hold that, if it is constructed along the Green Line on Israeli land, they would have no objection to it,” said Tilley. “The Wall is intended to re-impose stark ethnic division by the crudest method: physically delimiting the two ethnic enclaves of Jewish Israel on one side and the remaining wreck of Christian/Muslim Palestine on the other.”
