Israelis Get Medieval

We don't do much international commentary here at The Everyday Republican but this one was worthy of mention.

The Israelis are thinking of building a moat. No, it is not a punchline to a joke. They are considering the construction of 25 meter trench, to be filled with water. No mention of alligators.

The Israelis believe that the weapons that are being fired at them by Palestinian nationalists are coming from somewhere other than Gaza or the West Bank and thus have decided that one way to dramatically cut down on the number of weapons and insurgents in the Palestinian areas is to build a moat. The Israelis are in negotiations with the Egyptians regarding the plans.
