Dobkowski’s Op-Ed on Israeli Fence Published

Michael Dobkowski, professor of religious studies, had an editorial titled “Barrier helps build lasting Israeli-Palestinian peace” published in the March 4 Democrat and Chronicle.

“Israel is building a fence around the West Bank to protect the country from terrorist infiltrators,” said Dobkowski. “It is because a unilateral Israeli withdrawal to an impermeable border would make the state more secure that the Palestinian leadership opposes it. … The killing and terror must stop, the occupation must end, Israelis need security and Palestinians need control over their own destiny.”
