French FM changes his opinion on Israeli security wall

because it reduced Palestinian terror attacks by 80%. Hard to argue with success.

PARIS (EJP)--- French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy declared last week he has changed his opinion on Israel's controversial separation barrier in light of its drastic effect on terror, forcing French authorities to clarify their position on the issue. [...]

“I have significantly evolved on the matter of the separation fence” said Douste-Blazy on French Jewish television TFJ on Thursday. “Although the wall was a moral and ethical problem for me, when I realised terror attacks were reduced by 80 percent in the areas where the wall was erected, I understood I didn’t have the right to think that way.”

Neither does the rest of the world. Which is why many countries, Spain, Saudi Arabia and America, among others, are building them.
