Which brings us to the controversial barrier Israel is building basically along, but sometimes across the 'green line' with the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

"Israelis most commonly refer to the barrier as the "separation fence" and "security fence" or "anti-terrorist fence". Palestinians most commonly refer to the barrier as the "racial segregation wall" in Arabic, and some opponents of the barrier refer to it in English as the "Apartheid Wall.""

Not to mention the settlements, another huge and powerfully dividing issue.
